Today during its keynote at CES 2022, GM announced the all new, all electric Chevrolet Silverado. Thee truck is going up against the F-150 Lightning from Ford and has a range of 400 miles on both models.
The Silverado will go on sale in the US later this year and two models will be available, the RST First Edition and the WT, which is more geared towards fleet use. Both are set to have 400 miles of range, with fast charging too – at 350 kW DC. This speed will allow the Silverado to add around 100 miles of range is 10 minutes.
Like the F-150 Lightning, the Silverado has a built in system to run some appliances and power tools, in the event of a power outage. While it won’t be able to run a house like the F-150 can, it’ll be able to provide 10.2kW of power to those devices.
In terms of the motor, Chevy has packed it with 664bhp and 780 lb ft of torque, which will launch it from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds.
When the Silverado goes on sale later this year, Chevrolet will be offering one of the first RST models for $105,000 but the WT version will be around $50,000.
