When Chevrolet first introduced the 2024 Silverado EV, more than 170,000 people placed a reservation. And, according to a GM survey, 87% of reservation holders indicated they intend to tow with their Silverado EV.
The engineering team over at Chevrolet has been busy validating the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Work Truck. As the automaker nears the start of the truck’s production in Spring 2023, they have released a fun teaser video (above) following a recent towing validation test.
The above video showcases the Work Truck towing a 7,700-pound trailer (max tow rating is 8,000 pounds) during a recent engineering test. The Silverado EV’s chief engineer, Nichole Kraatz, was quite impressed with overall performance.
“It's so important for full-size truck customers to be able to tow, haul, and do everything that they can do in a traditional pickup truck,” Kraatz said, following the towing validation test. “We’ve set the bar and are validating an incredible product.”
