Electric Silverado’s Exciting New Design Boasts Same Workhorse Capability, Star Performance on any Surface
The Chevy Silverado has long been known for extreme ability that stems from its terrific 6.2-liter V8 powertrain, ideal driver’s position, and versatility when stacked against the competition. Impressively quick and adequately fuel-efficient, everyone here at Jim Butler Chevrolet was happy to see that an all-electric model is now officially in the works. There were rumors that this Eco-friendly and revolutionary new vehicle was becoming a reality in February of last year, and then again in June, and last month the brand we are so proud to represent every day officially laid down the word that the vision will manifest itself into exciting new frontiers.
The awesome staff on duty at CarBuzz.com is great at keeping their fingers on the pulse of the future of cars and delivering the news regarding how it feels to get behind the wheel of today’s most popular models. They had sourced a pretty cool rendering from an independent artist that had a true knack for vision and prediction before other well-versed members of their team were able to have a try at styling it themselves.
The Coming Silverado 1500 Electric will be built at the company’s Factory Zero assembly plant in Hamtramck, Michigan, where the close relative GMC hummer will also originate from. GM’s all-electric Ultium Platform will be the power source, which has allowed other vehicles of the same type to produce up to 1,000 horsepower. Here it was thoroughly agreed that this will be a release well worth waiting for, and a sure-fire extension of the strong truck that is equipped with an array of trailer-assist technologies and several game-changing features.
While you have time on your hands to come down and check out the current model, the newly-available Multi-Flex tailgate is a huge draw and win in the convenience territory: it can open and fold six different ways and can fold, flip up, and quickly become a useful step. Models that sport the diesel six-cylinder or turbocharged 4-cylinder see an impressive boost in their tow ratings, and there are awesome technologies onboard such as jackknife alert to provide the ultimate in aid when visibility and inclement weather offer up difficulties.
For the ultimate in the current model’s offerings with a bit of everything coming just short of the highest treatment available, the LT model offers up the 5.3-liter V8, crew cab, all-wheel drive, and standard-length bed. The Z71 package also enhances the truck’s looks and trail capabilities, and the always ready-to-rock Silverado High Country gets to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds while offering up the ground-breaking might and muster of the Silverado!
