Chevrolet Silverado EV RST First Edition Gets Price Cut and Range Boost

Chevrolet has announced several noteworthy adjustments for its electric pickup truck, the Silverado EV RST First Edition.

When the Silverado EV RST was first announced in 2021, Chevy said it would come with more than 400 miles (644km) of range, and a price tag of US$105,000. A lot has changed in the nearly three years since then, but in a positive turn, the Silverado EV RST will come with more range and a cheaper price tag.

According to Chevy, the Silverado EV RST is now US$10,500 cheaper, ahead of its mid-2024 launch. Priced at US$94,500, it now comes with a 440 mile (708km) range on a single charge. These adjustments position the Silverado EV as a leader in range among electric pickups, surpassing rivals like the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and the Tesla Cybertruck.

In Canada, the Silverado EV RST will be priced at C$117,499. This isn’t a price cut, or a price increase, as no Canadian pricing was originally announced.

Under the hood, the Silverado EV RST First Edition features a dual-motor all-wheel drive system that delivers 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque. This power allows the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.5 seconds. The Silverado EV RST also has 350 kW DC fast charging capability, which can add approximately 100 miles (161km) of range in just 10 minutes.

In terms of design and functionality, the Silverado EV RST First Edition comes with 24-inch wheels and a fixed-glass roof, a Multi-Flex Midgate, expanding the 5’ 11″ bed to accommodate items over 9’ long, or nearly 11′ long with the Multi-Flex Tailgate folded down.

Inside, drivers are faced with an 11-inch digital instrument cluster and a 17-inch infotainment system.

The Silverado EV RST also comes equipped with advanced driver assistance technologies, including Super Cruise with trailering support.
