The Chevy Silverado EV, which we expect to be available here at our DeFOUW Chevrolet dealer serving Lafayette, Crawfordsville, and Monticello area auto shoppers in the Fall of 2023,

was built from the ground up with Ultium – the groundbreaking, all-new battery platform from General Motors that brings with it new power, new force, new flexibility, and of course, a new range of possibilities. Pair this with Ultifi, a new intelligent software platform that keeps your vehicle functioning and personalized with over-the-air updates, downloadable apps, and new features so your vehicle system is constantly keeping up with you, and you’ve got yourself the perfect recipe for an all-electric pickup truck.

Chevy Silverado EV Cargo and Storage Options

The Chevrolet Silverado EV offers a variety of cab and seating configurations so that you can choose which model is the best fit for your everyday lifestyle and cargo needs. First, there is the Multi-Flex Midgate With Pass-Through, which allows you to fit those extra-long items (over 10 feet), then there is the 60/40 Flip-and-Fold Seat that makes space for longer items (up to 9 feet), while also offering enough room for a passenger in the back. Lastly, there is the standard bed, which provides just under six feet (5 feet, 11 inches) of space for your cargo.

Oh, and because the Silverado EV utilizes the Ultium Platform, there is no need for an engine or a transmission, which means you’ll be able to enjoy the convenience of something never before seen in a pickup truck – a trunk In the front, and a much larger center console with lots of space to store your personal belongings.

  • Front Pedestrian Braking – This system alerts the driver if a collision with a pedestrian directly ahead is imminent and he/she has not already applied the brakes. it can automatically apply the brakes to help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision.

  • Forward Collision Alert – Designed to work at speeds above 5 mph, the Forward Collision Alert feature warns drivers that they are driving too closely to the vehicle in front of them. Using cameras, radars, or both to monitor vehicles directly ahead of your car, the Forward Collision Alert technology will alert the driver if it detects that a front-end collision situation is imminent.
  • Intellibeam® High Beam Assist – IntelliBeam turns on a vehicle’s high-beam headlamps when it is dark enough and there is no other traffic present, and then turns them off when conditions change. The system works via a sensor located at the top center of the windshield, which automatically controls the system. As such, keeping this area of the windshield clear of debris is important to allow for best system performance.
  • Following Distance Indicator – The Following Distance Indicator uses the vehicle’s Forward Collision Alert sensors to provide the driver with the following time to the vehicle they are following, thereby letting them know if they are following much too closely. Vehicles equipped with the Following Distance Indicator feature have a section within the Driver Information Center that displays Following Distance.
