Curious to know what Silverado EV trim everybody is waiting on. RST and WT versions will be the very first to arrive. Next will be the Trail Boss and after that possibly others we haven't heard of yet, like the LT, LTZ, Custom or High Country.

I have a WT reserved. I expect it to cost me somewhere around 50 to 55,000. I'll be good with that.

When I reserved on 1/05/22 I was not given the option for WT or RST. I will likely go with the RST as I suspect the WT production quantities will be quite limited. The higher trim levels are more profitable for dealers and GM.

It’s nearly two years out and a lot can happen by the time I can actually order…… so who knows?

WT is the only on my radar. Never in a million years would I put $100K on a vehicle, at least not on a daily driver such as a truck. No way. So yeah, WT with as little options as possible and I hope larger capacity battery will be available even for a low-optioned one. Probably not, but one can hope.

And ADM is a definite show stopper for me.

The RST(2024 release) will have several different trim levels. $100k is more than I am willing to spend. My R1T at $76k(with tax credit $68.5k) was a real stretch. No ADM for me either. No car payments either.

I had not heard of the Trailboss before this thread so it may be a consideration.

Ideally
  • LT Trim
  • Midgate
  • Multifunction tail gate
  • Rear steer
  • Misc options
    • Power bar (10kW power)
    • Super cruise
    • Towing
    • Bed cab (one of those cool options in my color shown)
    • Bed liner
    • Powered/soft drop tail gate?
Leaving off air suspension and moon roof. This is probably $80k base, but they’ll probably stick me with one of those as an $$option, like the rear steer.

Welcome @nathan.fournier12! Will the Silverado be your first EV? Are you using it as a work truck or for personal use?
Thanks ! I got a nissan leaf already, will be for my personal use, I got an RV (Scamp 19) it is a small fifthwheel and I hope I will be able to bolt it to the bed ! My local dealer doesnt know if I will be able to ! It weights 2000lbs.

I think the potential issue is being able to bolt anything to the bed of the truck. The battery pack is directly below the bed.

The battery is mostly under the cab. In the profile image below, the battery runs from just behind the front wheel to the back of the rear-door opening. Most of the bed is over the drive unit + some transition structure between the battery floor and drive unit/bed structure. There should be access for dealing with bolt-in bed accessories. Though I suspect that 5th-wheel installations will require the 20K -rated towing

WOW. Just like me a majority who took this poll are looking to get a WT. I assume like me you want one as close to $40k as possible. I want an EV truck for as cheap as possible. I don't care about range or huge iPad screens or leather or midgates or 24" rims. I want a tank to drive around town, drop the kids off at school, and hitup the Home Depot.

How close to $40k are you thinking? $45k? $47k? $49,999? Does the $40k include dealer prep, taxes, ADM, a tax credit of how much?

If the MSRP for your EV tank is $42k, ADM is $5k and tax credit is $3.5k will you snap up that EV tank? Even if you have to wait 1-2 additional years ?

My dealer says no markup but who knows about that. To answer all of your questions, I want it as close to $40k as possible because that was the initial price point as stated by GM during the unveiling- and I am willing to wait. Whatever GM offers at that price point is what I'll take, so long as the nominal range is over 200 miles.

If Chevy welches on actually offering this price point, then sign me up for a $50k GMC Sierra Elevation. That truck has some of the niceties that are absent in the WT like alloy wheels, the midgate, and the iPad pro sized screen that I don't care about.

You could pull the trigger now on the Elevation given that super optimistically you might get a WT in the next 24-36 months. ICE seems to be your thing so now might be a great time to get an Elevation 355 hp and 16 mpg. Enjoy it for 5-10 yrs and if you gain some real interest in EV adoption then see what is available then.
