Chevrolet finally showed off the Silverado EV yesterday and just like we did for the Lightning and Rivian, I thought we should have a place to talk about the Chevy - especially since those of us who are loyal to GM might find it a more palatable alternative to the Hummer EV.

Most of the info I'll share here will come from the Silverado EV sister forum, where there's a reservation tracker just like we have here. The reservation tracker is seeing a lot of action, despite having gone live just yesterday afternoon, but the welcome thread is a ghost town, so please say Hi if you pop over there!

Now, on to the truck!

The Silverado EV debuted virtually after GM pulled out of CES due to [gestures vaguely], you know, and Chevy came prepared with lots of details about the Silverado EV's specs, including: range, charging, power and torque, towing, bed size, plus the extra features available on the range-topping (for now, anyway) RST model.

That RST with all those features will not be cheap. The MSRP is $105K, but like Ford, Chevy is being aggressive with the pricing of the Work Truck (WT) version, setting a target price of $39,900 with specs that look like they'll trump Ford's in most measures. Chevy is also promising more model variants with pricing to fill that chasm. More on pricing here: Chevy Silverado EV Price

Oh, but how does it look? Pretty good, I think. The comparisons to the dearly departed Chevy Avalanche are obvious. I'm sure the company considered resurrecting that branding but decided to go with the Silverado name to protect that brand going forward.

Here's a thread with all the official photos released by GM: Chevrolet Silverado EV Official Photos
And another with live shots from the desolate CES show floor:2024 Chevy Silverado EV: First Real Life Photos!

imo, Chevy did a great job of moving the Silverado styling in a more futuristic direction without looking Cybertruck-crazy. I'm never sure what to think when car companies release their own design sketches - these ones look just like the truck they debuted, but maybe they were drawn after the final design was signed-off on? But for what it's worth, the leaked photos from just a few hours ahead of the debut were spot-on (I'll admit to assuming they were renders)
