The all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will come to market first as a work truck for fleet buyers in the spring of this year. The fully-optioned Silverado EV RST performance truck will go on sale a bit later in the fall of 2023. Here is our first look at one of the Silverado EV WT “work truck” models.
This is a pre-production version of the Silverado EV WT, so some details are unfinished and not production specific. However, Chevrolet says this work truck will have up to 400 miles of range. It means that this is a 4WT version of the truck, which means it’s a work truck with the largest battery option. It is also the most pricey work truck the company plans to offer.
The window sticker for this long-range electric truck will start at $79,800 (including destination charges). This is not the $40K version of the Silverado EV that was originally communicated. While the price is high, this model will offer 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque from its dual-motor e4WD system. It offers the 800-volt Ultium architecture that will allow the truck to be fast-charged at up to 350 kW. This is currently the quickest-charging speed of them all.
Also included are the 120-volt and 240-volt power output outlets that can deliver up to 10.2 kW of combined electric output. This is a great feature for the job site. The current 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck offers up to 9.6 kW of onboard power output.
The Silverado EV WT will offer up to 8,000 lbs of maximum towing capacity and around 1,300 lbs of maximum payload capacity. These towing and payload numbers at not impressive for such a large pickup truck. Although, it does offer a very large bed and interior volume. The front trunk also offers significant storage.
