Silverado EV Trim Levels


If one has been following the Chevrolet EV progress, they know there are at least 3 different trims to choose from- WT (WT Fleet), RST (RST First Edition) and Trail Boss. The question is, will tere is other models available?? Chevy has not confirmed specific trims, but they do say there are more trims coming. Possibly LT, LTZ, Custom or High Country??? Guess we will have to wait and see!

Listed below are the Trims that the Silverado EV has already confirmed that will be available when the truck is on the road-


This is the entry-level Silverado EV. It is projected to be the first version to the market in the spring of 2023. Being a work truck (WT), it will be the least expensive with a starting price of $39,000 ($41,595 with a $1,695 destination charge included 🤔). The WT won't have all the bells of whistles of RST, but will be Ultium-based and use GM's new Ultifi software suite that allows for prolific over-the-air updates. It will also be available with a 400-mile-range battery, and it will have fast-charge capability at 350kW.

As for power, the WT will provide 510 horsepower (380 kW) and 615 lb-ft (834 Newton-meters) of torque. The WT can tow up to 8,000 lbs and has a payload capacity of 1,300 lbs. for the bed. Chevy did confirm there will be different range options available, but did not give any additional information about what they would be yet.

WT (Fleet)


Following the introduction of the WT, a fleet version of the WT will bring more capability for companies seeking a harder-edged work vehicle. The towing capability will increase to 20,000 pounds and the payload capacity will also increase. Additional details on the fleet model will come later.


Next comes the RST in the fall of 2023. It serves as the range-topping model, featuring extras such as four-wheel steering, adjustable suspension, and the reborn midgate concept in its Multi-Flex bed. This pass-thru from the bed to the cab allows the 5-foot 11-inch bed to offer a load floor of over 9 feet with the tailgate up, or nearly 11 feet when used with the Multi-Flex tailgate. It also benefits from Super Cruise, standard-issue 400-mile range, and it gets Chevrolet's Wide Open Watts (WOW) mode for 0-60 mph sprints under 4.5 seconds. 664 hp (495 kW) and all-wheel drive help make that happen.


RST First Edition

The RST production run begins with the RST First Edition. In short, it's an RST that has every option box ticked. We don't know the extent of those options, but Chevrolet says it will be priced at $105,000. With destination included, that's a whopping $106,695.

Trail Boss

Here's where the mystery really starts. Chevrolet didn't offer any information on a Silverado EV Trail Boss during the debut, except to say that it's coming. A single photo (at the top of this article) shows a properly beefy pickup wearing aggressive off-road tires, riding high off the ground. The front fascia is gray, similar to the WT versus body color on the RST. If it sticks to a similar hierarchy found in the standard Silverado lineup, a starting price in the $50,000 to $60,000 range seems likely. Then again, the RST slots below Trail Boss in the standard Silverado lineup.
