The all-new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV is in the works, and it should go into production next year. The forthcoming battery electric pickup truck looks attractive, and it’s designed to take on the Ford’s F-150 Lightning model.
As far as we know, the new truck will use the Ultium battery pack, and it will come with an electric motor. We saw the same configurations on the recently showed Hummer EV, the Cadillac Lyriq, and other EVs. According to GM, with this setup, the new Silverado will be able to provide more than 400 miles of range on a single charge. However, don’t expect the same as the high-performance truck Hummer currently offers.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV Exterior
According to teased photos, the new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV will get some exterior tweaks over the gas-powered model. However, don’t expect a huge difference visually between them, but the manufacturer will definitively mark the EV model to separate it.
As the Ford Lightning, the Chevrolet EV model should also dominate in the front with a traditional grille that is closed due to electric setup. But overall, the shape will likely remain, with a few updates to the front and rear. In general, we expect it to come with refreshed taillights and additional detailing on the tailgate. Besides, we heard that it would include a vast number of wheels and tire options.
On the inside, the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV shouldn’t stray far from the traditional non-EV truck model. Based on the recently teased photos, the forthcoming truck will come with a larger central touchscreen measuring around 13.4 inches.
Beyond that, we expect Silverado EV to gains better materials and some tweaks to stand out from the gas-powered truck. It will also offer more active safety features than the original variant.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV Specs
The new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV will shed its traditional gas engines for a fully electric powertrain. As the GMC Hummer EV performance truck, the Silverado will use the same GM’s Ultium line of long-range battery packs. Thanks to that, the Silverado EV will provide more than 400 miles of range on a single charge.
The current Hummer with the same setup offers 1,000 horsepower (735 kilowatts) and 350 miles (563 kilometers) of range. Rumors suggest that all-wheel drive will be a standard on the Silverado, with four-wheel steering.
When Will It Be Available?
The all-new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV will reportedly go on sale next year, and it will compete with the likes of the Ford, Rivian, and other EV models in the class. At this point we don’t have exact details of what the Silverado EV will offer, but there’s plenty of evidence that suggests its specs will be impressive.
If you didn’t know, GM recently stated that will invest $35 billion into Ultium battery technology in coming years, and the Silverado EV will be one of many upcoming models that will use it. Pricing is not available right now, but many believe it will cost anywhere between $40,000 to $50,000 when it goes on sale.
