The General Motors Super Bowl commercial focused on the automaker’s electric vehicle lineup. First, it teased the Chevrolet Silverado EV Trail Boss, an available trim for the electric truck at some point in the future. A teaser image has been released showcasing the Silverado EV Trail Boss in Habenero Orange as it’s taking on a trail. Looks good, no?
Chevrolet Silverado EV Trail Boss: Details
It’s clear by now that the Silverado EV Trail Boss will share some similar styling cues with the gas-powered one on the market today with the blackened front fascia, red tow hooks, factory lift, black mirrors, and Goodyear Wrangler tires. Also new in this teaser is a set of beadlock capable wheels, which weren’t found on the original Chevrolet Silverado EV Trail Boss teaser, pictured below.
Chevrolet has confirmed that the Silverado EV would be offered at prices ranging from $50,000 upwards. The Trail Boss variant will probably be within the $60,000-$70,000 range, based on what we currently see with today’s ICE Silverado Trail Boss, the Silverado ZR2, and how much GM is asking for the Hummer EV. It’s the third variant of the electric Silverado that’s been confirmed so far, along with the Work Truck, and RST First Edition.
The Chevrolet Silverado EV will begin production in the spring of 2023 as a 2024 model-year vehicle. At first, the electric truck will be produced for fleets and unavailable to retail customers. By the fall of 2023, the 2024 Silverado EV RST First Edition will begin production. Then, in the summer of 2024, the Silverado EV WT will be made available to retail customers, as will a more affordable version of the RST. Meanwhile, the Trail Boss trim has yet to be scheduled, but we expect it to arrive either as a 2025 or 2026 model-year vehicle, depending on how the next few years pan out.
