These powerful new electric pickups are about to shock the market

Earlier this week, General Motors announced the newest domestic pickup to hit the market: the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV. GM wasn’t exactly subtle that it planned to bring a competitor to rival the upcoming Ford F-150 Lightning, and its official announcement shows just how serious the automaker is at butting heads with Ford.

The Silverado EV is an amped-up version of Chevrolet’s top-selling Silverado pickup, except it’s powered by batteries instead of an internal combustion engine. This new truck will be capable of reaching an estimated 400 miles of all-electric range, according to GM, though the pickup will be offered with at least one other smaller pack size that has yet to be revealed.

When plugged into a commercial fast charging station, the truck accepts up to 350 kilowatts of juice. That charge rate can add up to 100 miles of range to the Silverado EV in only 10 minutes, according to the automaker. The battery pack’s stored energy can later be shared to regular household items via an onboard 10-outlet system capable of supplying up to 10.2kW of power. GM says that’s enough to power your home with the right equipment, or even charge another EV.

The Silverado EV base trim starts at $39,900, but its top-tier RST model starts at $105,000. Like the upcoming GMC Hummer EV pickup, the Silverado EV will offer optional four-wheel steering and air suspension. However, the Hummer is built as GM’s electric supertruck—a 1,000 horsepower, crab-walking, speed demon. The Silverado EV is built to be a bit more of a conservative offering to appeal to normal pickup buyers, and that’s exactly what it will do.
