A few days ago, GMC launched 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 pickupluxury truck 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV version of the division. As has been the case with Chevy and GMC for decades, GMC designers have worked to create rich visual differentiation between two pickup trucks that share a similar platform. Unlike the historical case, GMC has published much higher production figures for the Sierra EV than for the Silverado. A rough estimate for the battery-electric Sierra with a dual-motor drivetrain is 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque. Chevy revealed 2024 Silverado EV in January with 664 hp and 785 lb-ft in RST equipment. We’re not sure what happened after GMC came out, but Bowtie updated the output of Silverado to match the GMC with 754 hp and 785 lb-ft.
Sean Szymkowski, media spokesman for Chevy trucks filed a statement for different stores explains, “As we prepared for production of the Silverado EV, our engineering team further refined the performance estimates for the Chevrolet Silverado EV RST First Edition 2024. GM now estimates horsepower. up to 754 and an estimated 785 lb-ft of torque when Wide Open Watts mode is activated.” Maybe Chevrolet did so to prevent a backlash over the disparity, or maybe home Automakers planned to do so after GMC fell. On the ICE side, buyers are used to powertrain parity, with the Silverado and Sierra offering identical engines with the same power output even with a price difference of around $3,600 on the top-spec versions. corresponding. Regardless of the decision made, the benefits pass to Silverado EV buyers.
By the way, the “Wide Open Watts” reference refers to the driving mode required to extract these peak power figures. In GMC Sierra EV, this is called Maximum Power Mode. We’re still looking for clarity on the output figures in daily driving modes, we believe they’ll have the same 510 hp and 615 lb-ft, which is the maximum in the version. lower than Silverado EV Working truck.
With a year-long wait before the Silverado RST EV reaches pre-orders, and with the Chevrolet Work Truck providing real-world feedback before the RST arrives, don’t be surprised at more tweaks made to both the Silverado and Sierra EVs before they hit the market.
