Not the A/C cooling system. In The Ford Lightning forum they have said there will be two coolant systems. They have been very quiet about: checking the level, frequencies, how that’s done ie where’s the dipstick, special equipment required, what is “the fluid” ie ethylene glycol… Only real info so far is to replace “the fluid” at 200k miles. Is there any information on the Silverado EV coolant systems at this time?

There will be 3 coolant loops, like in the Bolt EV.

1 for HVAC, 1 for Battery, and one for the electronic components(IE Inverter/Charger).

(The Battery and HVAC may share a loop for heat transfer)

I am looking forward to seeing those in pictures sometime. The Lightning “loops” look like Rube Goldberg machines.

Edit: Not Lightning. I should have said to check out the Munro videos showing the Mustang Mach E (MME) coolant system removed from an MME. Complex and many points of failure. Hopefully the Ford Engineers are learning quickly. Good solutions are not easy. I’d expect GM is ahead due to years of experience with full EV auto construction.
