The Chevrolet Silverado EV is not the first EV pickup to hit the streets, but with 450-miles of range, it will travel farther than any other. We’re talking specifically about the 2024 Silverado EV 4WT, and our Quick Spin through Michigan coincides with the first customer deliveries.

The Silverado EV has nothing in common with any other Silverado to this point, as it’s based on GM’s Ultium platform, meaning it’s more akin to GMC’s Hummer EV pickup. Less weight and additional development time account for a big increase in range over the Hummer’s 381 miles per charge.

Silverado EV 4WTs come exclusively as crew cabs with a 6-foot bed, and dual-motor all-wheel-drive to the tune of 510-horsepower and 615 lb-ft. of torque. So, it will indeed get plenty of work done, including towing 10,000-lbs.

BRIAN ROBINSON: “So, I’m no stranger to GM’s Ultium platform, having driven multiple Hummers and Cadillacs at this point… First time driving the Silverado EV version and first time doing a lot of towing; and wow, towing a lot of weight with an EV… much different experience. Lots of power, smooth, quiet, you don’t get those awkward harsh downshifts, don’t lose a lot of power going up hill…”

Standard 350-kW charging capacity can get you back on the road quickly, adding 100-miles for every 10-minutes on charge.

The interior is built to be abused on the daily, yet keep you comfortable and informed with a standard 11-inch touchscreen.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV 4WT starts around $78,000 but a less expensive 3WT will arrive soon, along with the 754-horsepower RST, and even Trail Boss versions down the line.
