Silverado EV RST

Developed from the ground up as a fully electric truck on GM’s advanced Ultium EV Platform, the Silverado EV at launch will be available in two configurations, an RST First Edition and a fleet-oriented WT model. Each will offer the full range of available safety standards and technologies.

Featured RST First Edition includes:

  • Four wheel steering

  • Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension

  • Multi-Flex Midgate which expands the truck’s cargo capabilities while retaining seating for rear-row passengers

  • Available Multi-Flex Tailgate with power release

  • A large 17-inch-diagonal free-form LCD infotainment screen is paired with a reconfigurable 11-inch-diagonal instrument driver display and a multi-colored driver heads-up display with a more than 14-inch field of view

  • Super Cruise trailer-capable, allowing drivers to travel hands-free on over 200,000 miles of compatible roads across the US and Canada


The WT will be launched first to fleet customers and offers impressive capabilities to meet the needs of organizations with sustainable transport goals, including 510 hp and 615 lb-ft of torque. WT will offer 8,000 pounds of towing and 1,200 pounds of payload. After the initial launch, Chevrolet will introduce a fleet model with a maximum 20,000 pound trailer with a max tow package.

The new body architecture, which efficiently utilizes the available 24-module Ultium battery pack as part of the fundamental structure, enables impressive vehicle range. This structural design integrates the capabilities Silverado customers expect from a full-size pickup in terms of strength, durability and performance, while providing a more comfortable and confident ride both on and off the road.

Additionally, the chassis is designed with independent front and rear suspension, with power transferred to the 24 inch wheels available at RST via the front and rear drive motors that make up the e4WD system. Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension allows the vehicle to be raised or lowered up to 2 inches (50 mm).

Four-wheel steering capability reduces turning radius at lower speeds for better maneuverability in parking lots, and improves handling and stability at higher speeds, especially when trailering.

The RST and WT models also come with Tow/Haul mode, trailer hitch provision, and integrated trailer brake controller and Hitch Guidance. The RST also includes Chevy’s Advanced Trailer System.

The RST and WT feature public DC fast charging capability of up to 350kW allowing a range of about 100 miles added in 10 minutes based on GM estimates.

When combined with the supplied accessory power bar, the PowerBase Silverado EV charging system offers up to 10 outlets, to provide a total of 10.2kW of all electrical power for your workplace or recreational needs, including powering the home, with the necessary equipment.

The Silverado EV is also capable of charging other EVs using the supplied accessory charging cable, sharing power in times of need.

RST owners also have access to Ultium Charge 360, GM’s holistic approach to EV charging, designed to simplify the overall charging experience, including access to more than 100,000 publicly available charging points in the US and Canada.

WT customers have access to Ultium Charge 360 ​​Fleet Service, which offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive charging solutions for businesses, whether drivers take their vehicle home or return to a central depot.

The Silverado EV will be offered exclusively in Crew Cab models, with shorter front overhangs that give the truck a more aggressive position, more space and increase forward downvision. The second row is pushed back, meaning passengers over 6 feet are comfortable wherever they are seated.

The customizable first-line storage in the RST and WT models makes the most of interior space and provides functional solutions for a wide range of customer needs.

The eTrunk—a lockable, weather-resistant compartment at the front of the vehicle—provides ample space to fit large hardside suitcases and a wide selection of accessories for fleet and retail customers to load equipment based on the customer’s unique needs.

The RST modular console has a capacity of over 7 gallons, which means a lunch cooler can easily fit inside. At RST, the 5ft-11-inch bed storage capacity is maximized with the available Multi-Flex Midgate, which provides more than 9ft of storage between cab and tailgate when Midgate is opened.

The 40/60 second row seats offer four configurations that allow users to transport equipment or supplies while still accommodating second row passengers. With the addition of the available Multi-Flex Tailgate, the Silverado EV RST allows for up to 10 feet, 10 inches of floor load and storage capability. The available tonneau cover allows items such as wood or kayaks to be loaded into a fully lockable, weather-resistant storage compartment.

The main enabler of Silverado EV technology will be the first application of the Ultifi brand, a new Linux-based software platform. Developed internally at GM, it separates vehicle software from hardware to allow for fast and frequent software updates. This will provide an opportunity for drivers to develop their vehicles over time, upgrade capabilities and access cloud services in a flexible and fast manner.

The Silverado EV will be assembled with parts sourced domestically and globally at GM’s Factory ZERO, Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center—a redesigned facility equipped with a $2.2 billion investment devoted to EV production.

In spring 2023, the Silverado EV will debut a WT model offering GM’s longest-range battery with GM’s estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge. In fall 2023, a fully loaded RST First Edition model, also providing a 400-mile range, will debut with an MSRP of $105,000 + DFC.

Once production ramps up, Chevrolet will release the full Silverado EV portfolio, including the WT (starting at $39,900 MSRP + DFC), RST, Trail Boss, and more. Customers will have the ability to load trucks in a variety of price ranges, with MSRPs of approximately $50,000, $60,000, $70,000, $80,000 and more, enabling them to choose a truck that meets their capabilities and pricing needs.
