GM $95K Silverado EV Brings Beastly Range, Power to EV Truck Wars

GM Silverado Truck

After months of hype-building, GM has finally pulled back the curtain on the premium tier of its highly-anticipated Silverado EV lineup. The top-spec 2024 Silverado RST is shaping up to be an absolute monster – boasting game-changing range and performance that even gives Tesla’s upcoming Cybertruck a run for its money.

On the crucial range front, GM is blowing past its initial 400-mile estimate for the RST. The truck will actually pack a massive 440-mile driving range between charges from its beefy battery pack.

Better yet, the Silverado RST’s starting price of $95,495 (including destination) undercuts GM’s original $105,000 figure by a cool ten grand. That pricing realignment makes the fully-loaded electric truck a more compelling alternative to something like Tesla’s $69,900 tri-motor Cybertruck – which is only slated to offer 500 miles of range with an optional pack.

Monstrous Power and Performance

But it’s not just range where the Silverado RST flexes. This is a veritable performance beast through and through, with GM promising:

  • 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds
  • 10,000 lb towing capacity
  • 350 kW DC fast charging (100 miles in 10 mins)
  • 4-wheel steering for maneuverability
  • Heck, the RST will even rock massive 24-inch wheels to help fill out those chunky fenders. That’s quite the flex from the Detroit automaker.

    Of course, the $95K RST represents just the first (and priciest) salvo in Chevy’s upcoming Silverado EV blitz. Less expensive trims will follow for more budget-conscious buyers.

    GM already raised some eyebrows by hiking the price of its entry-level Work Truck version. So all eyes will be on whether the automaker can deliver those more affordably-priced electric truck models it’s been teasing.

    With the well-equipped RST now locked in as the top dog, Chevy has fired its opening salvo in the high-stakes electric pickup battle – squarely taking aim at Tesla’s Cybertruck in a bid to define the cutting edge of EV truck supremacy.
