Everything You Need To Know About The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD Trucks

Chevy is bringing out the big guns with its Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickup trucks for the 2024 model year. These revamped models will be receiving new aesthetic adjustments, a swankier interior design, and some adjustments to the mighty machinery.

New Engine Setup

While the refinement of Chevy’s interior helps makes the cabin maintain a clean and fresh look after getting down and dirty with the exterior, what really matters is how well tweaks are made to the engine. The standard powertrain is a 6.6-liter V-8, which is the same thunderous 401 horsepowered machine with 464 lb-ft of torque. Only now it’s matching it with a 10-speed automatic transmission rather than a 6-speed automatic. 

Then, there’s the optional Duramax diesel 6.6-liter V-8, which continues its partnership with the same Allison 10-speed automatic, however, its output has gotten a considerable increase with 470 horsepower (vs 445) and 975 lb-ft of torque (vs 910). The company says that these figures were increased due to the control architecture, combustion system, and turbocharger.

Reworked Interior and Clever Technologies

For the 2024 model, the supersize me Silverados are all flaunting new styles, starting even from the base-level Work Truck. The LTZ and High Country trims get a newly refreshed grille and C-shaped lighting features, as well as new dual-projector headlights with animated sequences activated when the driver either walks away or approaches the vehicle. The automaker also gears the upcoming Silverado with new wheel options that include chrome 20-inch wheels for the LTZ, along with lustrous 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tires assigned to the dual-rear-axle 3500HD. On top of this, certain packages feature a set of 20-inch off-road booties. The blacked-out Midnight Edition can also be had (for the first time) as an option of the High Country.

These updated HDs tack on a new dashboard design with grand digital displays, while the revised layout and technological features are nowhere to be found on the Work Truck or Custom trim levels, the LTs and up offer this as a standard. This setup involves a changeable 12.3-inch gauge cluster and a 13.4-inch touchscreen with Google-derived software and apps. The new cabin also brings along an updated center console with a wireless charger and extra space for the cupholders. The top-tier Silverados encompass real leather-wrapped surfaces and authentic wood accents. Distinctively in the High Country, there is a  new Nightshift Blue interior option involving all of the high-ranking materials.

This truck also includes several driver assists such as adaptive cruise control that aids in pulling a trailer, along with a blind-spot monitor that has a new extended range for trailering. There is even a new alert that lets drivers know if they exceed the HD’s GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating).

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD are set to go on sale during the half of next year. Chevrolet says that pricing will be revealed closer to the on-sale date. 

When the time comes to purchase either one of these vehicles, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. If you find something that suits your liking, feel free to chat with one of our representatives for further information.

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.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV: Up Close and Personal

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV

Last week, the YouTube channel, Redline Reviews went to this year’s 2022 Chicago Auto Show, specifically to cover the upcoming 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup. The reviewers appeared to be quite swayed by the truck, however, potential buyers will have to wait about a year before General Motors (GM) release it to dealerships.

GM revealed its revamped Silverado model as one of several future vehicles that will be a part of its electrified plans, with the hopes of dominating Tesla as the main electric car producer in the U.S. GM also aims to start deliveries of its latest EV truck in the spring of 2023, even though it’s only meant for the work truck. Additional trims will not be accessible until some time in 2023.

Loyalists of the brand should know that this isn’t GM’s first rodeo when it comes to electric trucks, as the car company started releasing its colossal GMC Hummer EV in December of last year. Apart from this, the Rivian R1T is the only electric pickup that is accessible in the North American market. Next up will be Ford’s F-150 Lightning pickup, with the automaker pushing to begin its deliveries in spring of this year.

The Silverado EV will be among a long list of electric vehicles, made for utility, that is part of GM’s new Ultimum architecture. As a matter of fact, the Silverado has the same underpinnings as the GMC Hummer EV, though it’s highly plausible that there will be a GMC Sierra at some point in the future.

In order to have some skin in the game and face off with F-150 Lightning and Tesla Cybertruck, it’s imperative that GM ensures that their latest Silverado is a pickup that provides the utmost range while maintaining its capability. In the same way, Redline Reviews discussed, the 2024 Silverado is astounding overall in its specs, particularly with its fully electric range of more than 400 miles and 664 horsepower.

The Silverado EV seems to follow in the footsteps of the F-150 Lighting in that it appears as a conventional pickup, but with a futuristic twist. Redline Reviewers say that it’s almost like a Chevy Bolt EV wedded to a truck. It’s quite conspicuous its similar design style than that of the brand’s Avalanche.

Unsurprisingly, this Chevy model will be generous in the room that it provides, highly accommodating, and possess great usefulness. The prototype shown in Redline’s video is derived from the high-bred RST trim, indicating that lesser trims may not be as flamboyant, but they’ll at least prove to be more cost effective.

The Silverado EV work truck (WT) will have a starting price nearing $40,000 (plus destination fee). This price is similar to that of the F-150 Lighting and Cybertruck. At the same time, an RST First Edition Silverado that is fully loaded will go around 100,000 (plus destination fee). Of course, after the initial production and release of the WT, the company will provide a full lineup of Silverado’s with starting prices raining from $50,000 to over $80,000 (plus destination fee).

Chevy’s 2024 Silverado EV Is In High Demand

100,000 Reserved The Electric Silverado

The Chevrolet company recently unveiled its first-ever electric pickup truck, and it’s safe to say that its reception was well received, with at least 110,000 people already signing up to make a purchase.

As many automakers are fighting the good fight in the transition of becoming an electric brand, we imagine that it must be gratifying for any automotive company to receive interest in their new hybrid or fully-electric models.

It is worth mentioning, however, that while Chevy’s numbers show some enticement for the truck, they still have some ways to go before completely replacing the love that Americans have for their gas-powered vehicles. In 2021, the car company sold close to 520,000 non-electric Silverados, reaching right behind the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.

Another important detail is that a reservation is just that…a reservation. An interested buyer could reserve their right to the truck by paying a fee of $100, and if they change their mind, the payment is refundable. Various details regarding the new Silverado are being kept hush-hush, it’s possible that some may not follow through with their reservation.

More Info On The Silverado EV

The latest Silverado is scheduled to arrive in the spring of next year as a 2024 model. It will also include two trim levels.

The basic work truck (WT) model will have a starting price of $39,000, (plus destination fee). It has a capable output of 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque. The company estimates that it will carry a range close to 400 miles between charges. Towing capacity is also 8,000 lbs, while the payload is at 1,200 lbs.

The second option and last option will be a fully loaded RST model. This sticker price reaches all the way up to $105,000, (plus destination fee), but it includes a boatload of conveniences that make it all worth it. It also increases its speed and strength, with 644 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. It can also tow up to 10,000 lbs and has a payload of 1,300.

The automaker maker says that more trim levels will be revealed before the arrival date, including an adventurous Trail Boss version, with a price currently unknown.

More Electric Pickups Coming Our Way

The fun doesn’t stop there in the automotive world and their electric pickups, as there are more vehicles in store for us! The Silverado EV will sit on General Motors’ (GM) new Ultium electric vehicle architecture. This unit will contain all of the necessary components and batteries and can be set up to build vehicles of many shapes and sizes.

GM has already made strides in the pickup segment with its Hummer EV. This truck follows the R1T from the startup company, Rivian. When we see the Silverado, those who will have been accompanied by Ford’s F-150 Lightning EV, which has already received an impressive amount of reservations.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Reconceives What A Pickup Could Be

Last week, Wednesday (January 5th), the Chevrolet company introduced their fully electric 2024 Silverado pickup truck, leaving many fans astounded with just how many changes this new model received from the inside-out. New offerings of this vehicle include:

  • An estimated range of 400-miles on a full charge for the Work Truck (WT) and RST.
  • Up to 664 horsepower with over 780 lb-ft of torque from the optional Wide Open Watts Mode on RST, allowing an estimated 0-60 mph time of fewer than 4.5 seconds.
  • Standard DC fast charging (reaching 350kW) on Work Truck and RST.
  • A max of 10.2kW of offboarding power on Work Truck and RST with optional gear.
  • Fit to 10,000 lbs of maximum trailering with up to 1,300 pounds of payload on RST.
  • Parent company, General Motors (GM) advanced Ultium EV Platform, the Silverado EV offers an incredible progressive combination of aptitude, performance and versatility, as well as advanced technologies that can develop the vehicle over time.

“Chevrolet has constantly revolutionized the Silverado franchise to make it the powerhouse it is today,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “The Ultium Platform is a critical enabler of next-level pickup truck performance for both fleet and retail customers, whether they are currently driving a Silverado or are considering a pickup for the first time.”

Interested buyers should expect during the launch that the newest Silverado will be available in two configurations, such as the RST First Edition and a fleet-centered WT model. Each will have an extensive bundle of standard and optional safety features.

Charging Capabilities

The RST and WT have public DC fast charging capabilities maxing at 350kW allowing about 100 miles of range to be tacked on in 10 minutes, according to GM estimates. Additionally, after combining the optional accessory power bar, the 2024 Silverado’s PowerBase charging system has up to 10 outlets, proving a total of 10.2kW of fully electric power.

Performance and Efficiency

Clearly, the Silverado EV RST and WT models were designed which much thought and with an acute attention to detail, specifically when it comes to the overall functionality.

“We had no constraints when it came to designing the Silverado EV with dramatic style and flexible utility because we didn’t need to work around a traditional propulsion system,” said Phil Zak, executive director of Chevrolet Design. “The Ultium Platform allowed us to redefine what it means to offer expansive new storage and utility possibilities.”

The construction of the exterior from its proportions to its surfacing fully embodies the Silverado’s knack for providing power and overall athleticism. On the front end, the truck has been shaped to masterfully direct air down the side of the body, considerably reducing drag and turbulence. For this reason, this WT is estimated to have one of the lowerest drag coefficients of any available production model, specifically in the full-size pickup category. This helps in enabling the impressive range.

In terms of space, Chevrolet has implemented an eTrunk, which is a lockable compartment located in front of the vehicle, that provides enough space for a multitude of personal items, big or small.

Owing to the Multi-Flex Midgate on the RST, the 5-ft and 11-inch bed of storage capacity is maximized. This is because the Multi-Flex provides a little over 9 feet of storage between the cab and the tailgate when the Midgate is open.

There are also four configurations available from the 40/60 second-row seat, which enables owners to haul equipment while still making room for a passenger in the back row. In addition to the RST’s optional Multi-Flex Tailgate, this model allows up to 10 ft and 10 inches of load floor and storage capability. Additionally, there is an available tonneau cover that allows large items to be loaded into a storage compartment that is fully lockable and weatherproof.

When To Expect Chevy’s New Pickup

The 2024 Silverado EV is expected to debut by the spring of 2023 for the WT model, while the RST is expected to arrive in the fall of that year. When that time comes, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the Chevrolet brand in a variety of different styles and prices.

Chevy Against Chevy! The 2022 Silverado vs. The 2022 Colorado

The Chevrolet company is known for its ability to produce affordable and stylish vehicles, especially when regarding its SUVs and trucks. Two of its most popular models are the Silverado and the Colorado pickups. The foremost is the largest of the two, serving as a full-sized pickup as opposed to the Colorado’s mid-size frame.

There are also many advantages that these two Chevy trucks have over the other, especially for the 2022 model year. Let’s explore a bit more about what makes them similar and what makes them different.

2022 Chevrolet Silverado

The 2022  Chevrolet Silverado is new and improved, bringing along with it a refreshed exterior and interior style. The pickup can be personalized with regular, double, and crew cab layouts. There are also options for cargo boxes, specifically: short, standard, and long beds. Choices for powertrains also range from an entry-level 2.7-liter 4-cylinder with an 8-speed automatic transmission, a 5.3-liter V8, a 6.2-liter V8, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel 6-cylinder engine, which all come with a 10-speed automatic.

The diesel engine shows that it’s one bad mother with its towing capabilities, as its injection of power makes it possible to tug up to 13,000 lbs. On top of this, the powertrain can be had with either rear- or four-wheel-drive.

If you’re looking for a little more adventure, shoppers can opt for the new off-roading ZR2 trim. Upgrades on this model encompass shocks from Multimatic, front and rear locking differentials, and augmented bumpers and skid plates. This ZR2 version also uses 33-inch all-terrain tires.

Another thing that distinguishes the Silverado apart from its siblings is the availability of parent company’s, General Motors’ (GM) Super Cruise system, a semi-autonomous driving system, which specifically has been tuned to work while towing on the Silverado. It is worth noting, however, that this feature will on be available on the top-ranking High Country model.

2022 Chevrolet Colorado

The mid-size 2022 Colorado may be a bit smaller but only expands in terms of its features. Starting with its excellent list of powertrains, two cab configurations, and cargo boxes. This truck also has the best towing in its class, with 7,700 lbs, which is achieved when it’s matched with the 2.8-liter Duramax Diesel engine. Rounding off the gasoline offerings are the 2.0-liter inline-4 and a 3.6-liter V6, which also have two- and four-wheel drive systems.

The Colorado also has an off-roading pickup of its own, the Z71. This model comes with an automatic locking rear differential, an off-road suspension, hill descent control, and all-terrain tires. The new Trailboss Package is also an option for 4WD versions of the LT and Z71 models. Skidplates, an off-road appearance package, along with a front 10-inch leveling kit come with the kit, of which there is currently a shortage of.

The ZR2 can tackle rough and tough terrain with its locking front differential, high-performance Multimatic shocks, four-wheel drive, off-road front fascia, and a taller and wider stance for elevated off-road capabilities. Interested buyers can also opt for ZR2’s Bison Edition, which was made through the partnership with American Expedition Vehicles. This optional package even furthers the off-road capabilities. 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and 2022 Colorado are both highly competent and adept in their own right, with the former being skilled in providing engine choices, three cab possibilities and three box lengths, towing and payload, while the latter is masterful with providing a highly comfortable ride, a wide choice of engines, great fuel economy and a lower price ($25,000* vs. Silverado’s $32,000*).

The winner is truly up to you and your particular preference in size and the features that you value the most. Regardless of what you choose, when the time comes to make your purchase on your favorite Chevy vehicle, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand, including the Silverado and Colorado.

Chevrolet Requires The Traditional Route For Buying The 2022 Silverado ZR2

Chevrolet announced that they will not accept reservations or pre-orders for their upcoming Silverado ZR2 truck. According to an interview with GM Authority editor Alex Luft, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, Kelly MacDonald, the 2022 off-reading vehicle will launch through the traditional dealer allocation and launch processes.

This particular approach is different from GM’s other launch strategies for various other specialty vehicles, like the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, and 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 CT5-V Blackwing. This restriction on pre-orders for the newest Silverado variant means that buyers will be able to order and essentially purchase the truck from their dealer as they would a regular Silverado, especially since the dealer has the appropriate allocation that enables its order to be accepted by the factory.

On September 9th, Chevrolet introduced the 2022 Silverado ZR2 as the new flagship adventurous model in the lineup of their light-duty pickups, marking it as the first that the ZR2 badge was featured on the Silverado. As with the mid-sized Colorado ZR2, the off-roading Silverado consists of progressive Multimatic DSSV dampers with three separate spool valves and three fluid flow chambers for better damping control. These springs work alongside the dampers to provide maximum front and rear suspension travel. At the same time, front and rear e-lockers further improve the vehicle’s loose surface traction and rock crawling capabilities.

There is perhaps one particular element of the ZR2 that stands out among other Silverado’s, and that is its special front fascia, which involves a high-approach steel front bumper with changeable end caps that provide a bit more intensity to the exterior design, while simultaneously making way an augmented 31.8-degree approach angle. Additional off-road-centered gear consists of a set of distinctive 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires, as well as surplus underbody skid plates. At last, the dual exhaust system has been reformed, involving tucked-down exhaust tips that stop ahead of the rear bumper, lessening the chance that it will get dented or smashed when going off-road or performing rock crawling activities.

Supplementary exterior add-ons for the Silverado variant include several ZR2 badges on the outer body, a new black hood insert, a special grille coupled with lighting, and a flow-tie emblem with a red inlay.

GM’s sole engine option will be their naturally-aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 engine, which has an output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque paired to the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD. Another standard is the new Terrain Mode setting, which gives way for one-pedal driving, ensuring precise control for rock crawling. Max payload gets a rating of 1,440 lbs, while the maximum conventional trailer weight gets a rating of 8,900 lbs.

The upcoming ZR2 will be available solely in the 4-door Crew Cab, Short Bed body style. It will also encompass the remodeled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior, along with the standard 13.4-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and 12.3-inch-diagonal customizable digital instrument cluster.

While at the 2021 SEMA show, Dom Lester, General Motors chief engineer for Performance Variants and Motorsports, discussed with GM Authority’s Alex Luft that the ZR2 was constructed using knowledge obtained from racing a ZR2 prototype (near-production) in the Best in the Desert racing series with the Hall Racing team, and from testing samples in the famous Moab desert in Utah.

“Chevrolet has been competing on some of the most grueling, toughest off-road courses with a prototype Silverado ZR2 in the Best in the Desert race series,” said Lester. “We applied what we learned in racing and Moab testing to the new ZR2 to offer a supremely capable and confidence-inspiring package, but one that doesn’t beat you up on the highway with its ride quality. It’s equally capable and comfortable.”

GM Authority reported last week the newest 2022 Silverado’s timeframe for its launch. This animated truck will enter production in February of the 2022 calendar year for the Regular and Crew Cab, while the Double Cab will enter production in March.

Electric Chevy Silverado to Feature Huge Infotainment Screen

The all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado has been receiving a lot of attention lately. The fully electric pickup truck has been getting teased more and more as it nears its full debut. General Motors will unveil the full-sized electric pickup at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022. Many automakers have been focusing on producing electric vehicles as the global climate crisis persists. General Motors is no stranger as its electric Silverado has caused many to increase their faith in the potential of electric vehicles. Automakers like Ford have been cautious in releasing electric vehicles that appear normal and conventional, something they have found much success in doing. GM has followed this pattern. The Chevy Silverado is a powerful, durable, and capable pickup truck. By turning it electric, GM continues to appeal to pickup fans. It also helps appeal to a greater number of consumers. Now with the new Silverado’s debut nearing, GM has released several teaser images that show some features of the full-sized electric pickup. One of these features is a fixed-glass roof which appears to offer more visibility. Another feature seen is a rather large infotainment screen. We’ll need to wait for more information, but we’ll dive into these new features.

Teaser Images Show Electric Silverado Infotainment Screen

The all-electric Chevy Silverado has been shown to feature a fixed-glass roof as well as a larger infotainment screen. The full-sized pickup will benefit from the increased visibility, headroom, and overall sense of space from the roof. These details come from a teaser image that was released alongside information about the CES show in 2022. The slow drip of details certainly helps build excitement and hype. Another feature seen in the electric Chevy Silverado is the addition of a new infotainment screen. 

From the teaser image, the all-new electric Chevy Silverado’s infotainment screen looks to extend towards the driver. The screen appears to be horizontally oriented with a wide curved surface. Since it’s so wide, this infotainment screen could potentially contain both the system display as well as the driver instrument panel. This would be a similar layout used in the fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade. 

In addition to the screen and roof, another feature expected to accompany the electric Silverado is a four-wheel steering system. This would enable the pickup to turn all four wheels at the same time, thus improving agility. It would also tighten the turning radius at lower speeds. Meanwhile, at higher speeds, this would greatly improve handling and stability. The four-wheel system would also improve the pickup’s trailering dynamics. From what’s been seen so far, the electric Chevy Silverado looks to be very promising as an electric pickup. New features and capabilities look to accompany the truck which will better enhance the driving experience. We’ll be waiting expectantly for GM and the debut of the electric Silverado at the CES show at the beginning of 2022.

Chevrolet Picks Up The Pace In The Electrified Race

Automakers near and far are slowly making preparations to redevelop their platforms from gasoline-powered vehicles to those that are either fully electric or hybrids. This is especially so for pickup trucks, with this segment on course to becoming the most popular space for EV models. Some examples include Ford’s F-150 Lighting, Rivian R1T, Tesla’s Cybertruck, and more.

Another automaker throwing its hat into the electric pickup race is General Motors (GM), as they’ve already confirmed the resurgence of its Hummer moniker under the GMC brand, but as a fully electric truck. The main focus on the construction of this vehicle will be its 1,000 horsepower output and “luxury off-roading”, but for buyers who are looking for something a bit simpler and rugged, they can opt for the newly-teased Chevrolet Silverado.

Last week Wednesday, (Oct.6), Chevrolet said that it would introduce the electric version of the Silverado truck at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2022. The event, which is held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the world’s prominent industry trade shows. Mary Barra, GM’s CEO is set to make the full reveal of the pickup in January, but in the meantime, here’s what you should know.

First and foremost, the Silverado will be powered by the brand’s new Ultium battery system. These packs will support the company’s next-generation electric models all across its brands, providing energy storage that range from 50 kilowatt-hours to 200 kWh. GM has said before that these batteries will provide “up to 400 miles or more on a full charge”, which mirrors the figure that the Silverado was given. This gives us reason to believe that the pickup’s battery will be the same size as the electrified Hummer.

The Silverado will be produced at GM’s Factory Zero plant by the side of the Hummer EV and the untitled GMC electric pickup.

Another point of interest is the truck’s glass roof. This optional transparent type of ceilings feeds off the recent trend of fixed glass roofs geared on vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Hummer EV also sports a congruous “Infinity Roof”, at the same time, the Silverado’s roof will be mounted rather than removable like the Hummer’s top-frame.

In August, GM announced that the Silverado EV will involve a set of kicks going up as far as 24-inches, which is the largest pair of wheels that has ever been offered on a pickup from Factory Zero. This vehicle will also encompass available four-wheel steering, which in the same way as the electric Hummer’s system, can aid in maneuvering its way in tight spaces by lessening the turning radius and possibly even positioning the truck diagonally.

Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, made his expectations clear during a recent press call that its target customers for the battery-powered version of the Silverado will contrast from conventional pickup buyers. This would make sense as to why the company chose the CES to showcase the truck as opposed to a standalone event, but it may also indicate that what GM anticipates the truck market to evolve into as it transitions even more towards a luxury segment while keeping a considerable amount of utility. The carmaker also revealed the availability of a fleet version, which essentially is the draft horse within the lineup and usually has the groundwork as the retail model, just more centered on functionality and not so much about interior opulence.

GM still has more in store with its Silverado, some that we’ll have to wait a little longer for. However, with recent revelations relating to the company’s semi-autonomous driving functions, the pickup may be likely to become a knockout with future pickup buyers. Be on the lookout in January for the unveiling of the truck at the CES, and in the meantime…

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado Brings On A Larger Screen Among Several Features

The 2022 Silverado Get’s A New 13.4-inch Interior Screen

The 2022 Chevy Silverado pickup truck has been refashioned in more ways than one. The new kid in town brings a slew of changes and advancements over its 2021 predecessor and the 2022 Silverado Limited trim. The highlighting feature among these improvements is an interior design that has been reworked from top to bottom and involves a new 13.4-inch infotainment screen.

This standard new and larger infotainment technology is geared on 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models, like the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country. The 13.4-inch gadget is set to come our way and act as a replacement for the 8-inch screen previously featured on the 2019’s to the interim period of 2022’s Limited models. The new and exciting interior setup also involves wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, together with built-in tech features from Google, like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

As you can see from the picture below, the larger front-row screen expands horizontally across the dashboard and is split in half, with the left side of the display dominated by virtual user interface buttons, and the right encompassing features regarding the directions and map. Additionally, there is a physical Home button that sits at the left of the volume knob, along with a set of USB ports (also involving one USB-C port) in the center of the stack located to the right of the climate controls.

On its own, the screen is fixed with a “floating” design that carries it out of the center stack, while also implementing an air vent by the left side of the driver’s seat, as well as a storage bin above and in the back of the screen.

For the time being, there hasn’t been anything announced for other models, like the WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. One should know that these trims have been previously geared as a standard with a 7-inch screen for the 2022-interim Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited.

Surplus updates that you’ll find noteworthy for this upcoming 2022 revamped model year include a new 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster, which is geared as standard on all restyled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models furnished with the tuned up interior design. Furthermore, buyers will have access to General Motor’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise driver-assist system, found on the High Country trim level. This particular model will come with assisted trailering capabilities and the luxury that you’ll already come to know and love.
