Performance of the 2023 Chevy Silverado EV

Power Delivery

GM explores all the reasons an electric vehicle should be powered by Ultium with an impressive 551 to 660 horsepower output across its trim levels. Two electric motors provide this power.

In addition to powering the Silverado EV vehicle, the battery can offer a PowerBase charging system of up to 10.2 kW with up to ten outlets. It can prove to be useful for recreational needs or on a worksite. The PowerBase feature enables it to charge another compatible EV with the provided charging cord.

Towing

Depending on the trim level, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV offers between 8,000 lb to 10,000 lb of towing capabilities. GM says that these figures will reach 20,000 lb with the development of new trim levels.

GM advises drivers to review the owner’s manual to assess the towing capabilities of each trim level since it is affected by the weight of passengers and cargo.

The Silverado EV also has an advanced trailering system with 14 camera views that offer an enhanced towing experience.

Off-Road Capabilities

The Chevy Silverado EV is a capable truck offroad due to features such as all-weather 24-inch tires on the RST trim and a decent ground clearance of 7.9 inches to 10.7 inches across the trim levels. While off-roading and hauling luggage, the Silverado EV 615 lb-ft to 780 lb-ft of torque across the trim levels is a great addition.

Also, GM places the truck’s Ultium batteries at the center of the truck above the undercarriage, thus lowering the center of gravity. This helps with handling, especially when off-roading in steep inclinations.
