Chevrolet’s forthcoming 2024 Silverado electrical truck sees the return of a feature the bow-tie brand’s fifty percent-ton pickup welcomed to its options list virtually 20 many years ago: 4-wheel steering. The method released for 2002 was dubbed Quadrasteer. This time about, even so, the American brand would seem content to skip any catchy marketing names.
For one particular, we get a great appear at the truck’s offered 24-inch wheels. Indeed, you study that suitable, the Silverado EV will ride on (surely optional) two-foot-tall wheels. The units sport an aerodynamic glimpse that reminds us loosely—at the very least in this blurry motion shot—of the ones Bugatti suit to its one-off La Voiture Noire.
Much more critical, even though, we get a good glance at this electrical truck’s lower bodysides and rear bumper fitment, and what we see qualified prospects us to feel that Chevrolet’s Silverado EV will tactic the electrical truck style system in a significantly unique way than Ford’s F-150 Lightning. Whereas the Blue Oval’s electric truck capabilities bodywork that mostly mirrors that of its inside combustion motor counterpart, the Silverado EV appears to rely on bespoke overall body panels, as evidenced by its square-ish wheel openings and rear bumper include that seems to merge immediately with the rear fender panels. The present Silverado 1500, in the meantime, functions extra circular wheel openings and an exposed rear bumper.
That explained, we anticipate both of those 2024 Silverado EV and ICE versions will share a range of styling cues, together with familial fascia graphics and head- and taillight models. Beneath the skin, though, we assume the Silverado EV to share much additional with its GMC Hummer brethren than its Silverado ICE stablemate.
Appear for equally single motor rear-wheel-push and twin-motor all-wheel-travel possibilities (we wager Standard Motors will reserve the tri-motor set up for the Hummer for the time becoming), as effectively as at the very least two diverse battery pack alternatives, with the biggest pack providing the Silverado EV all around 350 miles of selection on a total cost. A decrease-price tag, barer bones Silverado EV will surely enter the fray, as well, in purchase to improved consider on the Ford F-150 Ligtning Pro, nevertheless it might arrive a couple of months following greater-finish Silverado EVs hit the sector.
