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.
