The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV is available in multiple specs: 4WT with 450-mile range on a full charge. 3WT with 393-mile range 1 on a full charge. RST First Edition with GM-estimated 440-mile range.

We test drive the RST and show you the many unique features that makes the Silverado the benchmark in electric trucks. Big power with the GM-estimated 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque, riding on 24” production alloy wheels and weight a whopping 9100 pounds, but this truck is fast with a zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

Range is critical in an EV, the RST offers an impressive 440 miles of range.

Compare that to the Ford Lightning extended range battery, which offers an estimated range of 320 miles, and the Rivian R1T offers with a Standard+ pack with an estimated 315 miles of range.

One unique feature that we have seen on the Hummer EV is 4-wheel steer, a feature offered standard, making it more nimble to drive, tight turning circle.

The RST offers up to 10,000 lbs. of towing capability and 1,300 lbs. of payload.

Chevrolet's exclusive Midgate allows some of the rear seating to remain usable, but passengers will be sitting next to whatever the long thing is that’s being hauled and exposed to the outdoors.

The Multi-Flex Midgate that increases the pickup’s storage capacity when it’s dropped down. This increases the storage capacity from 5 feet 11 inches to 10 feet 10 inches.
