It’s been known for a while now that General Motors will expand its Ultium Battery technology across its popular full-size truck nameplates. It’s starting with the resurrection of the Hummer, and soon we’ll be seeing a Chevrolet Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV (or something like it) in a few years. Similarly, expect certain features and technologies to be shared across these vehicles. Four-wheel steering, for example, is going to be one such thing.

First shown on the Hummer EV Edition 1, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV will offer Quadrasteer Four Wheel Steering, which will reduce its turning circle in low speed settings. In high speed settings, the rear wheels will turn the same direction as the front wheels, which will reduce body roll as it performs the everyday task of changing lanes. All in all, four-wheel steering on the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV promises improved handling and stability compared to more traditional setups.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV: Confirmed Details

Chevrolet this morning also confirmed 24-inch wheels for the Silverado EV, the largest wheel GM has ever confirmed on a truck. We’re not sure how that’s going to feel with thinner sidewalls and all of that battery pack being lugged around, but considering that General Motors has some of the best chassis tuners in the business, we doubt there will be much compromise.

Previous reports have claimed that the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV could begin sale in early 2023, as GM moves swiftly to answer the Ford F-150 Lightning, which is expected to begin production in springtime of 2022. The Chevrolet electric pickup truck is expected to have around 400 miles of range.

GM CEO Mary Barra has otherwise described the new Silverado EV as “stunning,” and the truck will be built alongside the GMC Hummer EV in America. All of GM’s BT1 platform vehicles are expected to be built at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, which has been renamed to “Factory Zero“. The facility is undergoing a $2+ billion USD renovation.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.
