All-New 2024 Chevy Silverado EV To Feature 400 Miles of Range

The all-new all-electric Chevrolet Silverado EV is hoping to beat out competitors with its whopping 400 miles of battery range. The all-electric pickup truck will be Chevrolet’s second EV, following the Chevy Bolt. According to Chevrolet, the automaker wants to have at least 40% of its lineup consist of electric vehicles by the year 2025. This may seem bold, but the automaker has been steadily working toward new EVs like the Silverado EV and the Chevy Equinox EV. In producing new EVs, Chevrolet wants to ensure that they come equipped with high capability and performance. The Silverado EV is one of these as the automaker has said it will feature 400 miles of battery range, the most seen among current EV pickups. We’ll take a look at the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and see what else consumers can expect. 

2024 Chevy Silverado EV Will Outmatch Competitors

The all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is slated to feature 400 miles of battery range. Currently, among all the EV pickups, this will be the largest battery range available. The all-electric Silverado will be built on General Motors’ new Ultium platform. The pickup will feature a dual-electric motor setup and will be available in two trims, a Work Truck (WT) trim, and a high-performance RST trim. The WT trim will be capable of 510 horsepower and 615lb-ft of torque while the RST trim will reach 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. 

The 2024 Chevy Silverado will come available with a crew cab setup. Its exterior will feature a rather unconventional design as the EV pickup’s chassis is built around its battery pack. Its sail panel which is between the back of the passenger cabin and the top of the bed rail looks similar to the GMC Hummer EV. The pickup’s bed will feature dimensions of 5-feet, 11-inches in length, but with the mid-gate open and a configurable tailgate, this increases to 10-feet, 10-inches. The front end of the truck will be shorter to maximize driver visibility and increase passenger legroom. There will also be a frunk for extra storage space. 

Inside the 2024 Silverado EV, owners will note a 17-inch LCD infotainment screen. There will also be an 11-inch instrument display with a head-up display on the windshield. As far as overall styling goes, the interior will likely feature a similar design to higher-end Chevy trims. With so much performance and capability, the 2024 Chevy Silverado looks to pose as a tough competitor for other EV pickups like the F-150 Lightning and Ram EV. For now, we’ll have to wait for its release date in 2023 to confirm whether it has what it takes to be the strongest EV pickup.

The Chevy Trax Is Coming Back For More In 2023

Attention all SUV and compact lovers! A new generation of the Chevrolet Trax crossover is coming our way! Its more luxurious counterpart, the Buick Encore, shares the same platform and has similar mechanisms, but unfortunately, it’s getting the boot. Despite this, the Trax model is here to stay.

A spokesperson of the automaker told Roadshow that it “will reveal an all-new Trax later this year.” Meanwhile, the current Trax will end production late this year. The assembly of the next generation of this model will initiate in the first half of 2023.

Last year, the car company moved 42,590 examples of the Trax. This is a decrease of 59.9 percent from the Trax’s 106,299 deliveries in 2020. During the initial quarter of 2022, the subcompact’s volume was 5,801 units, which was a drop of 65.8 from the 16,955 vehicles in Q1 2021.

A report in March claimed that the Buick Encore was set to discontinue after its 2022 model year, and this claim turned out to be true.

As of yet, the Buick has sold much worse than the Trax, as the manufacturer delivered 20,072 Encores in 2021, which is a 51.9 percent drop from 2020. Then for the first quarter of 2022, Buick moved 2,620 Encores, amounting to a 57.9 percent drop from the same period in the previous year.

Chevrolet then updated the Trax SUV for its 2021 model year by bringing in a more advanced 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, with an output of 153 horsepower (114 kilowatts) and 177 lb-ft (240 Newton-meters) of torque. The preceding 1.4-L had an output of 138 hp (103 kW) and 148 lb-ft (201 Nm). The changes encompassed the implementation of direct fuel injection, as opposed to port injections.

The Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore were closely matched to the European Opel Mokka crossover. Seeing how the Opel is now a part of the Stellantis bundle of brands, the latest Mokka vehicle has no relation to the previous version.

Furthermore, this European competitor is also available as an electric vehicle. The Mokka has a powertrain that amounts to 136 hp (100 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. A 50-kilowatt-hour battery provides 200 miles (322 kilometers) of range, with the top speed coming at 93 miles per hour (150 kilometers per hour).

What to Expect from Chevrolet in 2022

Chevrolet will be bringing a host of updates to its lineup for the new model year. These updates will consist of minor and major changes that consumers will be sure to enjoy. The updates revolve around both exterior and interior changes. As of late, Chevrolet has been focusing on producing electric vehicles. The all-electric Chevy Bolt has proven quite successful, but Chevrolet wants to produce even more. The latest of these new electric vehicles is the Chevy Silverado EV and the Chevy Equinox EV. Both have been teased, but not much information is available yet. For now, Chevrolet is focusing on improving its combustion engine lineup. We’ll dive into some of the expected changes and updates.

2022 Chevy Silverado

One of the vehicles receiving a major update is the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado. Starting at an MSRP of $33,800 (plus destination fee), the pickup will be getting a new refresh. This will update its trims with a single-bar grille as well as a lowered hood and lower LED headlights. The pickup truck will also get a new 355 horsepower 5.3L V8 engine that comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. This will replace the base V6 engine.

The 2022 Silverado will also receive a new 13.4-inch touchscreen and electronic gear shifter. For the ZR2 crew cab model, owners will note new position-sensitive shocks, front and rear electronic locking differentials, 33-inch mud-terrain tires, red tow hooks, skid plates, and a steel front bumper. The 2022 Silverado will also receive new driver-assist features like automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and a rearview camera mirror.

2022 Chevy Equinox

Next on the list is the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox. The compact SUV starts at an MSRP of $25,800 (plus destination fee). It will receive new front and rear fascias, a slimmer grille, and new LED headlights and taillights. Chevy will also be dropping the turbo-4 engine from the base trim. The SUV will now feature a 170-horsepower turbo-4 engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. There’s still the choice for either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, however. The RS trim will feature black 19-inch wheels, black exterior elements, and a black interior with red stitching. 

2022 Chevy Colorado

The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado will also receive some updates, although only minor. Starting at an MSRP of $25,435 (plus destination fee), the midsize pickup truck will see a new Trail Boss package. This package will feature a 1-inch suspension lift, front and mid skid plates, red tow hooks, 17-inch black wheels, and all-terrain tires. The ZR2 trim will also feature a higher 2-inch suspension lift. It will also see a 3.5-inch wider track, 17-inch aluminum wheels, front and rear electronic differentials, adaptive dampers, and heated front seats.

2022 Chevy Corvette

Everyone’s favorite sports car will be getting a powerful new engine for the 2022 model year. Starting at an MSRP of $60,900 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette will be receiving a new 5.5L V8 engine capable of 670 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. This will be one of the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engines to come to the Corvette. It’s reported to be capable of hitting a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds.

2022 Chevy Blazer

Last on the list is the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer. Starting at an MSRP of $33,400 (plus destination fee), the midsize SUV will receive new front and rear styling along with new LED light signatures.

GM Attempts To Regroup With Its New Bolt EV and EUV Ad Campaign

Bolt EV and Bolt EUV

The parent company of Chevrolet, General Motors (GM), launched its new ad campaign, Friday (April, 8), with the hopes of rebuilding trust in its customers. This process of gaining back trust is necessary when regarding the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV, as numerous production halts and pricey battery recalls pestered the company for more than a year.

Last year, multiple reports of battery fires forced the multinational automaker to issue a hefty recall for all Bolt EVs that were made at the start of production in 2017. It was an estimated $2 billion in the cost of swapping out batteries created by its partner LG Energy Solution.

Twenty-four incidents were made aware to federal regulators, while GM said that they were aware of 19 related car problems.

Last week marked the start of a new rollout of ads via a national television campaign…that doesn’t mention the recall.

According to Newsweek, Shad Balch, director of Chevrolet communications, said that the campaign is intended to show the ease and convenience of having an electric vehicle.

One spot conveys the Bolt’s range to the viewers’ by showing a driver listening to his mother’s chatter-box during a long drive. Meanwhile, another ad titled “Life Changes,” shows a mom-to-be learning about the charging process.

In regards to what potential buyers should consider when thinking about purchasing Bolt despite its previous battery issues, Balch said that the EV represents a focus on gaining consumer trust and a positive entry point for drivers considering swapping their gasoline-powered cars for fully-electric ones.

“We have kept our customers first in every step of this process and will continue to reaffirm that commitment,” he said. “For consumers we will focus on the attributes that make Bolt EV/EUV the perfect choice to switch from gas to electric: long-range EV loaded with technology at an affordable price.”

He also said that the company is certain that it will set a sales record for the Bolt and transcend that projected record in 2023.

Last year, the company sold 24,828 Bolt EVs and EUVs.

It was in November 2020 when the first recall notice went out, with GM saying that 50,932 vehicles that were produced from 2017 to 2019 had a fire risk, warning its customers not to charge their cars with high-voltage lithium-ion batteries to full capacity.

It was after a series of reported fires that involved the battery, the company lengthened its recall in August 2021 to involve every Bolt made since 2017.

Although customers waited for the defective batteries to be replaced, the company instructed drivers to lessen their battery capacity to 90 percent, keeping the battery charged to 70 miles or range, at the minimum, along with parking their vehicles outside and not charging them overnight.

In December, the American car manufacturer released a software update that automatically sets the Bolt’s top charge limit to 80 percent, enabling drivers to leave the car charging overnight and to park indoors.

Throughout this process, production was also halted due to supply chain issues intruding with the manufacturing of replacement batteries. This caused GM to issue production halts for the Bolt line, which was extended until production restarted this month, in April.

Chevrolet Helps Untangle A Teen’s Twisted Predicament

A few weeks ago in Elgin, Texas, it was a seemingly average day for 16-year old, Riley Leon. The teen was driving home from a job interview that particular day, on Highway 290, when found himself caught in a severe storm… which resulted in him getting caught in an EF-2 tornado.

As many individuals saw on a viral video, the tornado blew into Leon’s truck and spun it around several times before miraculously flipping back onto the truck’s wheels, allowing Leon to finally escape from the twister and only leaving with a cut on his elbow.

“Grateful I’m here. Grateful God gave me another chance,” Leon told FOX 7.

Unsurprisingly, as a result of this incident, the entire driver’s side of the teen’s red Chevrolet truck was dented. 

“So it was family. That truck helped me and my dad get to where we are now. To see that it’s gone, it brings a lot of tears to me,” said Leon. The pickup was indeed precious to Leon, as it had been in Leon’s family before his sister was even born.

In a rather exciting turn of events, Leon was not only offered the job he was interviewed for, but he was also awarded a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado pickup!

Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, an affiliated dealer in Texas, teamed up with Chevrolet and the Chevy Cares, a charity foundation, to give Leon a new car. Randall Shapiro, president of the dealership, told Fox News Autos said he started calling around to track him down to offer him the truck as soon as he saw what happened to Leon.

Chevrolet also released in a statement:

“Chevrolet, together with Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet of Fort Worth, TX, are donating a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT All Star Edition in Cherry Red to Riley Leon and his family after he survived a powerful tornado while driving in his Silverado. We are thankful Riley is safe, commend his driving skills during a frightening situation, and our hearts are with other families in Texas that have been affected by these storms. To help aid the recovery efforts in Texas, Chevy Cares is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Due to the quick action of the team at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the new truck will be presented to Riley and his family on Saturday, March 26, at the dealership.”

The new pickup that was presented to Leon is a Cherry Red Silverado 1500 All-Star Edition, which has a starting price of $50,000, (plus destination fee). As previously stated, this is the same amount that Chevy Cares pledged to donate to the American Red Cross organization, to help those affected by the severe storm.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

For some the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado isn’t just any ol’ pickup, it’s a one-of-a-kind truck that fuses all of your needs in one, with its aggressive styling, Multimatic DSSV dampers, upgraded technology, and otherworldly deluxe interior.

Miami Lakes Automall is selling this hot commodity at its dealership in various different trims and configurations. Those who are interested in purchasing this vehicle can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

GM Teases Chevy Equinox EV in Short Trailer

Chevrolet recently released a short teaser video showcasing the all-new all-electric Chevrolet Equinox. The electric SUV is just one of the many EVs that Chevy is working on. Like many other automakers, Chevrolet has been working to produce a lineup of electric vehicles to help reduce global carbon emissions. The automaker has teased the electric Chevy Silverado and there have also been rumors of an electric Chevy Blazer. We’ll have to wait for more information about both, but for now, we’ll dive into the latest teaser video showing off the new electric Equinox.

Chevrolet Equinox EV Debuts

Chevrolet recently put out a teaser video for the all-new Chevrolet Equinox EV. The automaker had teased the new EV SUV earlier in the year at the 2022 CES show. There, Chevy showcased computer-generated renderings of the battery-powered SUV. Now Chevrolet is publishing a short teaser video depicting the SUV and its sleek design. 

In the 30 second clip from Chevy, we can see that the Chevy Equinox EV has narrow and slit-like headlights that flow into the grille bar. The EV SUV seems to have a soft and round front end and hood. The front end appears friendly as though suited for families rather than aggressive. A charging port can be seen on the driver’s side front fender and the door handles are the pop-out style that seems to be common on electric vehicles. 

Further along in the teaser video, we see the smooth and flowy sides of the Chevy Equinox EV. These wrap into the rear bumper which has the name Equinox stitched in grey metal. The ‘E’ in Equinox is the three-bar Ultium logo which alludes to the Ultium electric platform that GM is using for its EVs. The logo meshes well with the radiant blue color scheme of the SUV. Speaking of the color, it seems the Equinox EV has a two-tone paint scheme as the roof and A-pillars have a white contrast with the blue body.

The all-new Chevy Equinox EV is supposedly going to start at an MSRP of $30,000 (plus destination fee). We’ll have to wait for more details about the EV SUV, but based on the teaser video it looks to define a new era for Chevrolet.
