Silverado EV First-Edition RST Features Were Recently Unveiled by Chevy

The top-of-the-line 2024 Silverado EV First-Edition RST pickup truck from Chevy has what are probably the final specs out.

A choice of Silverado EV models with different range options will eventually be available, according to Chevrolet. For now, though, the Silverado EV First-Edition RST, which retails for $94,500 plus $1,995 DFC, is the first vehicle in the lineup. The outside can be either black or white, with a black interior. It is anticipated that by mid-2024, customer deliveries would start.

With 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque, according to GM, the Silverado EV First-Edition RST can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. Its remarkable 440-mile range, which represents a considerable increase above the prior estimate of 400 miles, gives it a competitive advantage over rivals in this regard. (The EPA estimates that the Ford Lightning extended range battery can travel 320 miles, and the Rivian R1T comes with a Standard+ pack that can travel an estimated 315 miles.)

The First-Edition RST can tow up to 10,000 pounds and carry 1,300 pounds. It has an added function called Multi-Flex Midgate, which expands the pickup’s storage space when it is lowered. It can store up to 10 feet 10 inches more when combined with the Multi-Flex Tailgate, up from 5 feet 11 inches. Some of the back seating is still functional thanks to the Midgate, but passengers will be seated next to the lengthy object being transported and will be exposed to the elements.

Regarding charging, the DC rapid charging capacity of the high-end electric pickup truck can reach 350 kW. Those who turned their First-Edition RST reservation into an order are eligible for a free bidirectional Level 2 GM Energy Powershift wall charger with a 19.2 kW power rating.

One interesting feature is that 7.2 kW of electricity can be used off-board for any purpose, such as camping or job site labor. If you would want to increase the power to 10.2 kW, there is an optional power bar available.

In addition, it boasts 24-inch wheels and 4-wheel steer, a standard feature that makes driving it more agile. A more pleasant ride is provided by GM’s Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension Technology, albeit it is not exclusive to the RST. Additionally, Super Cruise and standard Chevy Safety Assist are included when towing.

An 11-inch diagonal reconfigurable driver information display, a 17-inch diagonal LCD display screen, and a 14-inch diagonal field of view are combined. Google has integrated their technology into the Head Up Display. Finally, a permanent glass roof completes the picture.
