Chevrolet releases more specifications for the upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado EV work truck coming on sale this spring to fleet customers. Chevrolet also shows a short video of the work truck prototype towing a 7,700 lbs camping trailer. The first version of the Silverado EV work truck is rated to tow up to 8,000 lbs. This is not very much for a full-size pickup truck, but other versions of the Silverado EV will be rated to tow heavier loads. For example, the Silverado EV RST is rated to tow up to 10,000 lbs. Chevrolet initially promised a special version of the Silverado EV that will tow up to 20,000 lbs.

The WT (work truck) version of the truck has a bit less headroom that the luxurious RST model in the front (by about two inches). However, it has more headroom for the rear seat occupants (by about one inch). It’s not clear exactly why this is, but the panoramic roof in the Silverado RST may have something to do with this.

We still do not have any updates about the battery size, precise range rating, or work truck horsepower/torque numbers yet. GM originally estimated a 400-mile total driving range for the WT model, as well as 350 kW fast-charging capability (which is still industry-leading).

We know that the Silverado WT will initially be available for fleet customers in a 3WT trim that starts at $74,800.
