Chevrolet Silverado EV: 400 Miles of Range, 8,000 Lbs Towing Capacity & Other Features Announced Ahead of Collosal Release in Fall 2023
The Chevrolet Silverado EV has been revealed ahead of its debut today. It features a design that blends the classic look of the Avalanche with modern technology from the Hummer EV. The RST and WT models feature public DC fast charging capabilities of up to 350kW, enabling approximately 100 miles of range to be added in 10 minutes based on GM estimates. With the growing North American network of chargers and the Energy Assist feature in the myChevrolet Mobile App, drivers can create energy-efficient route planning even while trailering. When combined with the available accessory power bar, the Silverado EV’s PowerBase charging system offers up to 10 outlets, providing 10.2kW of all-electric power for countless worksite or recreational needs. The Silverado EV will come in three versions: EV RST, EV WT (Work Truck) and EV Trail Boss. GM says it will get over 400 miles of range on a full charge and have an MSRP starting at $39,900 + DFC for the WT model when production ramps up in fall 2023.
The Silverado EV is powered by GM’s Ultium battery system, which offers up to 400 miles of range on a full charge. It also features an advanced powertrain that includes two electric motors and a single-speed transmission for improved efficiency. The vehicle has been designed with the capability to tow up to 8,000 lbs., making it ideal for those who need the extra hauling capacity but don't want the added emissions from traditional gas-powered vehicles. Additionally, its available ProGrade Trailering System provides drivers with enhanced trailer control and monitoring capabilities through their myChevrolet Mobile App or in-vehicle display screen.
The interior of the Silverado EV is just as impressive as its exterior design and performance specs. It comes standard with heated front seats, dual climate control zones, wireless charging pad compatibility and more than 20 storage compartments throughout the cabin – perfect for keeping all your gear organized while you're out on adventures or working hard at job sites alike! Plus, it's equipped with Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus featuring Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration so you can stay connected no matter where life takes you next!
Safety was also top priority when designing this truck; it comes standard with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward Collision Alert (FCA) & Lane Keep Assist (LKA). Other driver assistance technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control - Camera Based (ACC CB), Rear Park Assist w/Automatic Braking & HD Surround Vision Cameras providing 360° views around your vehicle when parking or maneuvering tight spaces like construction sites or campgrounds alike! Finally there are several optional packages available such as Advanced Trailering Package which adds Trailer Sway Control & Hill Descent Control plus much more depending on trim level chosen too!
Finally Chevy has announced that they will be offering customers access to OnStar services including Remote Key Fob Services allowing owners remote start/stop functions via smartphone app along side other convenience features like Vehicle Diagnostics Checkup notifications sent directly into owner’s inboxes alerting them if any maintenance needs arise during ownership period too!. With all these great features combined together we think this new model will be sure hit among pickup truck enthusiasts everywhere once production begins later year fall 2023 onwards!
