Probably gives an idea of what's to come for private orders, too, but that is still just for fleet trucks.

A lot of high tech features that are standard equipment which is very nice. Most Fleet vehicles are white so no surprise that is the only color at launch and black available later. Also, the current ICE WT model doesn't have heated seats/steering wheel according the build configurator.

ICE trucks have lots of waste heat, so heated seats are less important. For BEVs heated seats should be std. Equipment IMHO.

Most interesting to me is the presence of a spare tire, AFAIK that hasn't been mentioned so far. The Hummer doesn't have one included, and of course with most vehicles these days its not included and no good place to put it.

Thanks for this link. WT standard features look reasonable. Has anyone heard about the timing on ordering WT for individual reservation holders?
I have not heard when ordering for the 2024 WT will begin but my speculation is late 2023 with 8-18 months lead time. Lead time will depend on many factors most of which are not controllable by the reservation holder.

A lucky few will get a WT in 2024 but most likely it will be 2025-2026.

GM will have limited production capability, therefore they will decide when and the number of trucks in each trim (configuration) that they will produce as well as where and who they will ship them to.

Eventually you will get your WT albeit at a price higher than you expect.

Welcome to the forum @jag41! No confirmation yet about how the ordering process is going to go. My guess is that fleet orders are going to get first priority from Chevy before individual orders.

Thanks for the replies. Let’s hope that they use, first reserved is the first to order.
Early reservation holders generally will get the ability to order sooner but when your vehicle is delivered will depend heavily on your configuration and myriad of other GM induced constraints.

$100.00 does not buy you much! Not even a price guarantee let alone a first come first serve commitment.

I am wishful that they are not going to limit trim levels like ford. (So not customer focused) The customer orders should dictate production. I understand supply issues, assembly line limitations, however they are essentially all the same vehicle but with different wheels, seats, body moldings, etc.
America needs to get back on track. GM has the capability to make the right decision. Let’s hope that they do.
Only time will tell.

Adding each different option increases assembly line complexity... starting slow with fewer options then increasing the options count as time goes helps with efficiency. Especially when each vehicle starts to be majorly different from the last in the line.

I’m very impressed with the standard options and all of the driver assistance.

It looks like they are going with these black wheels as standard. https://gmauthority.com/blog/2022/08/2024-chevy-silverado-ev-wt-first-interior-photos-exclusive/amp/

- Wheels, 18" X 8.5" (45.7 cm x 21.6 cm), high gloss Black painted aluminum

I am disappointed there is no heated seat. Also 4 way adjustable seat could be a deal breaker for the WT trim. I believe this means no up and down adjustment. Only sliding forward/back and recline forward/back.

Hi @McMoo welcome to the forum! The WT is meant to be a fleet vehicle first and foremost so it's no surprising there's going to be minimal options/features. Are you going to wait for another Silverado model above the WT?

Possibly, will have to wait and see. The biggest thing is the seat adjustment if my wife ever drives it. I’m 6’2” so I’m sure it will be fine but someone 5’6” will likely have an issue. The others features are great and the price is right, although I’m sure it will be closer to $50k by the time it’s my turn.
