Which EV Pickup Is Right For You? 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Vs GMC Sierra EV

The all-new, all-electric 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is almost here. Chevrolet has been preparing for its first electric pickup, which is set to launch in early 2023. The Silverado EV will initially be offered with the WT trim, but the more powerful RST First Edition trim will arrive soon after. In friendly competition with the Silverado EV is the 2024 GMC Sierra EV which will come in early 2024. Both EV pickups represent their parent company General Motors, but since one is Chevrolet and the other is GMC, they will feature some differences. As of late, Chevrolet has been ramping up its EV production. This bodes well as a sign of confidence as the automaker believes consumers will show increased interest in its EVs. Since both the Silverado EV and Sierra EV are expected to offer high capability and efficiency, we thought we’d look at both and see what consumers can expect.

Expected Performance From Silverado EV & Sierra EV

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is expected to arrive with a dual motor setup capable of 510 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque. These will be the performance standards for the first trim released, the WT. Another trim called the RST First Edition will be available later, and it will feature a similar setup with 664 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. The 2024 GMC Sierra EV is also expected to arrive with a dual motor setup, though the EV pickup will likely feature greater capabilities. The Sierra EV will be available in a high-end Denali Edition 1 trim and offer 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque. Both electric pickups are expected to have a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. They will also feature unique power modes–Wide Open Watts for Chevy and Max Power Mode for GMC.

As for charging and range capabilities, the 2024 Silverado EV will feature a 24-module battery pack with 200 kWh capacity. This will provide the electric pickup with 400 miles of battery range. Owners can charge the Silverado EV at up to 350 kW, adding 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. The GMC Sierra EV will also feature 400 miles of battery range as both pickup trucks ride on the same EV platform. It will also feature similar charging capabilities to the Silverado EV. 

Inside the Silverado EV & Sierra EV

While the Silverado EV and Sierra EV feature similar body styles, their overall details are distinct. The Silverado EV has smoother edges and lines and has a full-width horizontal light line. The Sierra EV is a bit more chiseled and features a large brand plate in place of its front grille. Both trucks will feature a crew cab configuration and a fixed panoramic glass roof. Inside the pickup trucks are where the critical differences lie.

Inside, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV features a cleaner dash with a more traditional layout. The Silverado offers an 11-inch driver display and a 17-inch wide touchscreen display tilted toward the driver. The 2024 GMC Sierra EV features a central 17-inch touchscreen that is vertically oriented. The pickup also has a smaller driver display. Both pickups still offer physical knobs and buttons as well. The 2024 Silverado EV will start at an MSRP of $40,000 (plus destination fee), while the 2024 Sierra EV will start at an MSRP of $108,685 (plus destination fee). Both pickup trucks will feature additional trims, but the Silverado is the more economically viable option, especially since both trucks offer similar capabilities.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Sees Major Upgrades

Chevrolet recently unveiled the newly redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The heavy-duty pickup arrives with a bold new look and increased capability. As of late, Chevrolet has been revamping its entire lineup. The automaker has been focused on rolling out its new electric vehicles like the Silverado EV and Colorado EV, but this hasn’t stopped Chevrolet from updating its combustion engine lineup. The 2024 Silverado HD is just one vehicle with increased performance and capability. We’ll look at the heavy-duty pickup and see what consumers can expect. 

2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Sees Increased Capability 

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD will arrive with a new redesign inside and out. The heavy-duty pickup truck will also feature upgrades to its powertrain, increasing its capability and versatility. Chevrolet has equipped the 2024 Silverado HD with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that pairs with both the 6.6L V8 and the Duramax turbo-diesel engine. This replaces the old 6-speed and allows the Silverado HD to maintain its peak power for longer. When equipped with the 6.6L V8 engine, the Silverado HD also sees greater towing capacity with a max of 26,000 pounds. Chevy has also optimized the heavy-duty pickup’s braking control allowing it to shift and downshift quicker. About the new 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, Chevrolet vice president Scott Bell said, 

“We’ve designed the Silverado HD to be our customers’ favored choice for true truck capability,” said Scott Bell. “The enhancements to the 2024 model build on its core strengths to provide an even stronger balance of the design, strength, and confidence that makes tackling the hard jobs, including trailering, easier and more convenient than ever.”

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD also features a new front fascia, new headlights, and a new grille. Additional features include standard tow hooks and Chevrolet lettering on the hood scoop. There are also several new exterior colors, including Dark Ash, Radiant Red, and Sterling Gray. Owners will find a new instrument panel inside the pickup with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen slanted toward the driver. There’s also a 12.3-inch driver display screen to complement it. Owners can choose between a regular cab, double cab, or crew cab configuration. They can also select dual-rear wheels on the Silverado 3500HD. Those interested in the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD can expect pricing to be announced as the pickup moves closer to production.

2024 Chevy Silverado EV to Feature Bidirectional Charging

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging. The all-electric pickup truck will be capable of providing backup energy to a plethora of sources. As one of Chevrolet’s most powerful EVs, the Silverado EV is set to launch with two available trims, the base WT and the RST First Edition. The Silverado EV WT will be the first to debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST will arrive later. General Motors will also be partnering with the residential solar company SunPower to develop a home energy system that is compatible with the Silverado EV. We’ll take a closer look at this partnership and see how it will affect the Silverado’s charging capabilities.

2024 Silverado EV Will Feature Bidirectional Charging Capabilities

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging capabilities. Set to launch in 2023, the all-electric pickup will be available in two trims: the base WT and the RST First Edition. The WT trim will debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST First Edition will arrive later. The Silverado EV WT will come equipped with a dual motor setup that’s capable of 510 horsepower and 625lb-ft of torque. The Silverado EV RST First Edition will offer increased performance with 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. 

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV First Edition will feature a 24-module battery pack that offers 200 kWh of capacity. This battery pack will provide the electric pickup with 400 miles of battery range. Owners will also be able to charge their Silverado EV at up to 350 kW which will add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. In an attempt to further the Silverado’s capability, General Motors (GM) will be partnering with the residential solar company SunPower to develop a home energy system. This system will be compatible with the Silverado EV and will be available for those who purchase the all-electric pickup.

Together, GM and SunPower will provide owners of the 2024 Chevy Silverado with a reliable home electric system. If consumers opt for it, SunPower will install rooftop solar panels. These will work in unison with the Silverado to provide a constant source of energy. Owners can use their pickup to charge other objects including other EVs. They will also be able to export energy from their pickup to their homes to offset electricity costs. If owners undergo a power outage, the Silverado EV can be used as a primary source of energy. The 2024 Silverado EV WT is set to start at an MSRP of $40,000 (plus destination fee).

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.

2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Recieve Boost in Engine Power

The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be receiving an upgrade to its turbodiesel engine. The half-ton pickup already offers impressive capability, but this upgrade will provide owners with more power to complete their tasks. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy working on its EV lineup. With new electric vehicles coming like the Chevy Silverado EV, Chevy Colorado EV, and Chevy Equinox EV, it’s nice to see the automaker also improving its combustion engine lineup. We’ll take a look at the new performance metrics of the upgraded diesel engine and see what consumers can expect.

2023 Chevy Silverado Turbodiesel Engine Receives Upgrade

The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will now arrive with a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six Duramax diesel engine that’s capable of 305 horsepower and 495lb-ft of torque. This is close to a 10-percent boost in performance from the 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque that was previously offered. These improvements will help those owners who opt for the Duramax turbodiesel engine perform at an even higher level. The new diesel engine will still come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Those interested in the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also have the option of selecting from a turbocharged 2.7L, a 5.3L V8, and a 6.2L V8 engine.

Chevrolet has improved the turbocharged 3.0L Duramax turbodiesel engine by upgrading several of its components. These include new pistons, an improved combustion bowl, and new fuel injectors. All these additions have helped provide the diesel engine with higher performance and better capability. The new Duramax turbodiesel engine will come available with the Custom Trail Boss, LT, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, and High Country trims. About the new turbodiesel engine, Chevrolet’s assistant chief engineer John Barta said,

“These improvements to the popular 3.0-liter Duramax diesel build on the already advanced design of the first-generation engine,” says John Barta. “We often hear customers express their satisfaction with the outstanding fuel economy and smooth, quiet power of the current diesel engine, so we can’t wait for them to experience this advanced engine, made possible by the continued design evolution and advances in engine technologies.”

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).

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time comes to purchase the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand that range in various shapes and prices.

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.

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.
