The Silverado EV RST will be getting a flat bottom steering wheel, the first time a Chevy truck will be available with one.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition will come with a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel – making it the first Chevy truck available with this steering wheel design.

Interior photos of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition show the battery-electric truck equipped with a sporty looking flat-bottom steering wheel. This wheel will be available on this Silverado EV trim level and will be the first Chevy pickup offered with a flat-bottom wheel such as this.

For readers who may not know, flat-bottom steering wheels are typically seen in sports cars and other performance vehicles and were first introduced in racing to give the driver additional clearance between their legs and the bottom of the steering wheel. They serve little purpose in road-going performance vehicles apart from aesthetics, but have become a desired feature among buyers of these vehicles over the years.

The Silverado EV RST First Edition’s flat-bottom wheel will feature silver accents and a centrally mounted RST badge with contrasting red-painted lettering. The standard steering wheel on the pickup, as seen on the WT trim level, will feature a regular round shape, along with similar silver trim accents. The RST wheel also appears to be leather-wrapped with double-stitching, although both feature the same or similar multi-function button array.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition will come standard with a dual-motor powertrain producing 664 horsepower with more than 780 pound-feet of torque, helping it hustle from zero to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds. This trim level will also come with standard four-wheel steering, automatic adaptive air suspension and trailering-capable Super Cruise. Pricing for this trim will start at $105,000 before destination and freight when the truck goes on sale in the fall of 2023.

GM has so far received roughly 140,000 reservations for the Chevy Silverado EV between the RST First Edition and WT trim levels. The truck will be produced at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan alongside the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and SUV.
