When Does the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Go On Sale?

There is always a rise in the buzz around the Ernie Dean GM showroom when a new Silverado model is on the way. However, the buzz surrounding the newest full-size Chevy pickup truck is a little more electric than previously seen. The first 2024 Chevy Silverado EV models available will be WT fleet models, arriving during the spring of 2023. Consumer-focused models (RST First Edition), will go on sale the following fall. Let’s take a look at a few things we can expect to see when the 2024 Silverado EV finally arrives at the Ernie Dean GM showroom.

“The all-electric Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup is designed from the ground up to be an EV, harnessing the Ultium platform and the Silverado’s proven capability,” Michael MacPhee, brand director, Chevrolet Canada, said in a press release. “The Silverado EV is redefining the boundaries of the full-size pickup segment, taking what you thought was possible and completely breaking the mould.”

2024 Silverado EV RST First Edition Performance

We have very high expectations for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV. It won’t be the only electric truck on the market, but it will make a strong case for being the best. Current estimates from the manufacturer say that the 2024 Silverado EV will be able to travel up to 640 kilometres on a single full charge. When the proper settings are in place, the Silverado EV’s electric powertrain will make up to 660 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, the electric truck will be able to accelerate to highway speeds in less than 4.5 seconds. 

Fast-charging equipment is standard equipment and 10.2 kW offboard power is available with optional equipment. 

Towing & Cargo Hauling Specs

A lot of attention is going to be paid to the truck’s electric powertrain and its blistering performance scores. However, at the end of the day, the 2024 Silverado EV has to perform like a traditional Chevy truck platform. Up to 590 kg of cargo can be hauled in the bed of the electric Silverado pickup truck. When it’s properly equipped, it will be able to tow as much as 4,534 kg (10,000 lbs.). 

Standard Equipment for the 2024 Silverado EV RST

The high-tech nature of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV requires high-tech features and equipment. Chevy is pulling out all the stops when it comes to equipping the electric Silverado. When the new truck goes on sale, it will feature:

  • Four-wheel steering
  • Automatic Adaptable Air Suspension
  • Multi-Flex Midgate
  • Multi-Flex Tailgate
  • 17-inch LCD infotainment screen
  • Available Super Cruise

One of the most innovative new features for the 2024 Silverado EV is the Multi-Flex Midgate. The rear partition of the truck can be lowered to make the cargo bed more accommodating for longer items. When the midgate is lowered, items up to 3 metres (10 feet) can be held in the back of the Silverado EV.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD heavy-duty pickup has been revised, restyled, and endowed with greater capability. We expect pricing to start at around $43,000.

Nothing stands still. Even in the workaday world of heavy-duty trucks, bars are being raised, antes are being upped, boundaries are being breached. The 2024 Silverado HD answers that call with improvements in several areas.

The current (fourth) generation launched for the 2020 model year, so 2024 marks the obligatory mid-cycle revamp. Like its rivals from Ford and Ram, the Silverado HD comes in 2500 and 3500 forms, with a choice of cabs, beds, engines, trims, and abilities.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Regular Cab Pricing

We expect the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD to start at about $43,000, plus a destination charge, for a 2500HD version in Work Truck trim with the Regular Cab and gasoline engine.

Higher up the trim level ladder come Custom, LT, LTZ, ZR2 (arriving later) and High Country trims. This latter version is the most luxurious, best-equipped and therefore the most expensive, which could see a final price closer to $90K with options.

Because the competition among heavy duty trucks is so fierce, the Ram HD, Ford Super Duty and GMC Sierra HD also start off in the low-to-mid $40K range.

Before buying a new Silverado HD truck, check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area paid for theirs. Traditionally, the GMC Sierra HD has enjoyed excellent resale values.

Chevrolet’s regular new-vehicle warranties are for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Powertrains are covered for five years or 60,000 miles, but the diesel engine in the 2024 Silverado HD extends that mileage to 100,000.

Driving Improvements

Adaptive cruise control becomes available in the 2024 Silverado HD, with the ability to take the specific challenges of a trailer into account — such as the extra drag and the longer braking distances required.

Trailer-related technology in general gets a boost for this refreshed Silverado HD. The cool “transparent trailer” feature (a camera system allowing the driver to “see through” the trailer) has been enhanced to work with gooseneck and fifth-wheel setups. Blind-spot monitoring extends its field of vision to include whatever’s being towed. And drivers can now be made aware if they’re exceeding the gross combined weight rating (GCWR).

Pairing a 10-speed automatic transmission with the gasoline V8 (replacing a 6-speed unit) results in a better chance of finding the ideal gear when towing, as well as finer control on downhill stretches, and keeping the engine’s powerband in its sweet spot.

More attention has been paid to the optional 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel V8, raising output by 25 horsepower and torque by 65 lb-ft. However, both the Ford Super Duty and Ram HD offer more muscular diesel engines.

Towing ability improves by 500 pounds to a maximum of 36,000 pounds. Yet again, the Silverado HD is outdone by its rivals, but that’s still a considerable weight and quite likely sufficient for most buyers of heavy-duty trucks. The diesel V8’s maximum thrust of 975 lb-ft comes in at just 1,600 rpm, so it will get a big trailer moving with relative ease.

It’s the 2024 Silverado 3500HD that does the really hard work. In addition to that maximum towing figure (made possible by the diesel engine), this variant is also capable of handling a 7,290-pound payload (Regular Cab, gasoline V8, rear-wheel drive, dual rear wheels).

Heavy-duty trucks usually have their suspensions tuned to be at their most composed with a load on board, but we’ve found this current-generation Silverado HD more than bearable. For the last word in comfort, though, the Ram HD has an adaptive air suspension available.

Upgraded Interior

Even though Chevrolet says all models of the 2024 Silverado HD truck range have updated interiors, the greatest changes happen in the LT trim and up. They gain a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a generously sized 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen. This latter display is angled slightly toward the driver, along with most controls.

A new center console in these upper trims allocates a space for wireless smartphone charging. And a spot for sunglasses is hidden behind the infotainment screen.

The Regular Cab has one row of seating, but that’s roomy enough for three occupants. The Double Cab brings in another 3-spot bench for rear passengers. And the Crew Cab enhances rear legroom to an abundant 43.3 inches, which is about the same as the larger cabs of the Ford Super Duty and Ram HD.

The most affordable Work Truck trim is exactly that — no frills and materials chosen to endure tough conditions. At the other end is the lavishly-appointed High Country trim. In between is a selection with increasing amounts of standard equipment and eligibility for options.

Redesigned Front End

A tidying up of the front end and tweaked headlights are the more obvious fruits of this mid-generation refresh applied to the 2024 Silverado HD truck lineup. The higher trims gain LED headlights with dual projectors.

Look a little closer to discover the word Chevrolet in upper-case letters adorning the hood scoop. Tow hooks are now standard. And fresh colors this year are Sterling Gray, Dark Ash, Auburn Metallic, Lakeshore Blue Metallic, and Meteorite Metallic.

A new Midnight Edition package for the top High Country trim satisfies the current trend for blacked-out exterior details. This version also offers retractable side steps with LED lighting.

Nice touches from the previous years are carried over, such as the bed steps on the sides and in the rear bumper. Cab styles remain as Regular, Double or Crew. Bed lengths are standard (82.3 inches/6.9 feet) or long (98.3 inches/8.2 feet). The Regular cab comes solely with the long bed.

Favorite Features

1. Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Smartphone integration without the need for a cable. It’s highly convenient and Chevrolet usually makes this a standard feature in all its vehicles.

2. Multi-Flex tailgate
Work surface, step, bed extension — the ingenious Multi-Flex tailgate adds extra functionality to an already well-considered work truck.

3. Google Assistant
This allows users to control home devices, send texts, get directions from Google Maps, play music, or even adjust vehicle settings — all with voice control.

4. 13.5-inch infotainment touchscreen
Here’s an area where the 2024 Silverado HD beats the Ford Super Duty. The Blue Oval’s biggest screen for its heavy duty trucks measures 12 inches on the diagonal. On a more serious note, we’ve liked Chevrolet’s infotainment systems for a while now, appreciating their user-friendliness.

5. ZR2
The ZR2 off-road specialist treatment has already been applied to the half-ton Silverado and the midsize Colorado trucks. Now for the first time in a Silverado HD, a ZR2 model joins the lineup with a specialized suspension, all-terrain tires, and more.

6. Alaskan Snow Plow Special Edition
Someone has to clear the snow from Alaska’s roads and they could make short work of it with this vehicle. It also comes with a spray-in bed liner, plus rubber mats in the cabin.

Choice of Two Engines

Although the 401-horsepower 6.6-liter gasoline V8 in the 2024 Silverado HD hasn’t been updated, it’s now connected to a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

The turbocharged diesel V8, however, bumps output to 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft of torque (up from 445 and 910). The result is a higher maximum towing figure, an increase of 500 pounds to 36,000 pounds. For comparison, the Ford Super Duty and Ram HD rivals can handle at least 37,000 pounds.

This diesel V8 is also paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is the basic configuration, regardless of engine, with 4-wheel drive offered across the lineup.

6.6-liter V8
401 horsepower @ 5,200 rpm
464 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm

6.6-liter turbocharged diesel V8
470 horsepower @ 2,800 rpm
975 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600 rpm

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
