In recent years, GM has decided that it is in its best interests to announce new products much earlier than usual. This is evident in its latest EV projects, such as the Silverado EVs and Hummer, as well as Cadillac’s Celestiq sedan. It also posts sketches from its design group on its social media. These two images are a result of that.
What year are these Silverado designs?
These are real GM Design sketches that reveal the design direction for the next-generation Silverado. Ben Wilkins, GM’s designer, called it a “mean-and-green fresh take” on Chevrolet’s 1500 pickup. It’s exaggerated enough for GM to gloat. It doesn’t necessarily indicate what the next Silverado will look like.
Silverado 1500 has a new design. It was first introduced in showrooms in 2018, as the 2019 entry. Chevy’s 2023 model has a slight facelift. The pandemic caused it to be delayed for a year. The 2019 underpinnings will be retained in the next version, we believe. The next version will have new sheet metal fenders and front and rear fascias. The interior will be refreshed and there will be a new range of engine options.
What is different about the 2023 Silverado HD trucks?
It’s not too far from the 2023 Silverado HD front end. These front fender extensions have been removed from the long-awaited 2023 Silverado HD. The sheet metal is more sculptural as it turns to the sides. This eliminated the awkward, arbitrary design line at the front of the fenders that are lost in the doors.
The body sides now make the wheel openings stand out more. These are also slightly squarer, which is a feature that many Chevy truck owners have missed since the previous generation.
Although you may think that Silverado’s next generation is already available with an EV version, it will continue to be powered by the ICE gas engine for some time. Many truck fleets and individuals want to keep their ICE trucks. They will continue to be a part of Chevy’s truck line-up for many more years.
To that end, instead of developing a new truck for Silverado’s next generation, as some suggest, Chevy will continue to use the existing GMT1000 platform for a while. The truck will be updated with new sheet metal and engines as well as more towing and driver assistance. Instead of spending development dollars on new truck platforms, they will be used to fund EV programs.
Chevy must also develop a smaller truck competitor to the Ford Maverick, to match its allocation dollars. Chevy now has two new platforms for its truck platforms, instead of the usual 1500 platform. These dollars will be used to fund its EV and small truck programs, as well as GM’s push for all models to become electrified.
You can be sure that today’s Silverado 1500 or Sierra 1500 trucks, which are GM’s last two-thirds of their current lineup, will not be the best. All the hype surrounding the Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup truck and GMC Sierra EV electric pickup trucks (and let’s not forget about the Hummer EV) is a sign of things to come. Tons of pickups have combustion engines.
That’s exactly what you do wrong. We could also see the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or GMC Sierra 1500 in 2025. General Motors Investor Day saw GM President Mark Reuss make a point to note that the company was still selling pickup trucks, even though it continued to invest most of its resources in electric vehicles and autonomous technology.
The current targets for the launch of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra are 2025. Reuss also confirmed that GM would be updating its engine portfolio for its upcoming truck family. This figure of 10 percent appears to represent the number of midcycle updates for the Chevrolet Silverado 1500/GMC Sierra 1500 model years in 2022 and the next-generation trucks in the future in 2025.
Reuss stated that the mid-cycle upgrades (Silverado, Sierra 1500) have a 5.8 percent decrease in greenhouse gases. The next-generation model will have a further 4.7% reduction. What is the “engine portfolio update” supposed to do? Every industry seems to have its method of reducing exhaust emissions.
According to GM Authority, Mark Reuss, GM President, confirmed that both full-size trucks will debut in 2025 at a meeting with investors. Silverado and Sierra’s next generation will have a new powertrain. In keeping with the automaker’s goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2040, they are expected to reduce their emissions by 10%. GM’s next-generation full-size pickup is still in the planning stages. It is also not clear how the upcoming Silverado EV fits into the Silverado lineup.
The new Silverado 1500 and Sierra won’t be revealed for some time, but there are many details about the updated models that will be arriving in 2022. Last month saw the debut of the 2022 Silverado 1500 and the 2022 Sierra 1500. Later in October.
Silverado 1500 2022 has a new grille and front fascia. There are also additional exterior paint options. The interior of the Silverado 1500 2022 has been completely redesigned. It features new seats and a reshaped dashboard. There is also a center console that can display 13.4 inches of touchscreen information. Additional color options are also available.
All 2022 Silverado models come standard with the Chevy Safety Assist package. High County trims get GM’s top-of-the-line Super Cruise hands-free driving technology. Silverado ZR2 is the new trim for 2022. It offers enhanced off-road capability and features like exclusive suspension, one-pedal Terrain Mode, and skid plates. The range includes the Duramax turbodiesel, which can pull more weight and has more torque.
Next-generation full-size trucks’ next-engine portfolio updates will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 10% compared to the current offerings. The 2025 Chevrolet Silverado will feature an entirely new exterior design, interior design, and ride on a brand-new platform.
It won’t use the same platform as the Chevy Silverado electric model. This is because it rides on the same Ultrium Platform that GM’s Ultrium Battery Technology and Ultrium Drive Technology in a similar manner to the Hummer EV SUV or Hummer EV Pickup.
The electrified Silverado is due to arrive on the market in 2025, but the 2025 Chevrolet Silverado with its internal combustion (ICE), full-size pickup trucks will be the first generation. The next generation of ICE trucks will be equipped with a new powertrain.
The production of the Silverado 1500 2025 will begin in the third quarter, or perhaps the fourth quarter of 2024. The Silverado 1500 model Silverado 1500 has been assembled in Silao, Mexico, and Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA as of 2019.
Moreover, Oshawa in Canada produces only Chevrolet Silverados at the moment. In November, production began on the Silverado HD. Oshawa will start production of Silverado 1500s in spring 2022. This is in addition to the launch of the new model, which was announced earlier this year. Oshawa will be the only GM plant that exclusively produces Silverado models and the only one that makes light and heavy trucks.
Barra claims that GM intends to produce 400,000 EVs in North America between 2022 and 2023. This may seem like a lot, but it could not speed up the turnaround time for Silverado’s EV. If there were 100,000+ reservations, 25% of all EV production would need to be dedicated to Silverados. This doesn’t seem possible. If GM could produce 50,000 Silverado EVs in 2023, half of the orders would still be unfulfilled by next year.
They can increase that production to 150,000 units by 2024. This would mean that the majority, if not all, of the Silverado pre-orders, won’t arrive until the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025. This does not include additional orders, dealer deliveries, and so on.
While increasing production is fine and necessary, it won’t be enough to speed up Silverado Electric Vehicles in the time needed to meet customer demand. The Silverado Electric Vehicle is quite cool, we agree. Is it cool enough that we have to wait three more years for the Silverado EV? Rivian continues to make electric trucks and SUVs in two factories. Ford has begun pre-production of the F-150 Lightning.
There’s also Tesla, which is looming above the Cybertruck. However, they will face many setbacks. GM seems to be catching up to these other EV options. The real question is how patient people are with the Silverado EV. Are they willing to wait for years to have one? Or will they opt for another EV instead?
2025 Chevy Silverado Release Date & Price
General Motors released the following statement: “As you have stated, we have announced an investment in battery cells and assembly capacity that will give us more than 1 million units of electric vehicle capacity in North America by 2025.”
According to Reuters, the production of the all-electric Cadillac Lyriq will increase to 25,000 units in 2018, up from 3,200. The production of the GMC Hummer Electric Vehicle (from 3,800) is expected to rise to 21,000 units. After a brief delay due to battery recall issues the Chevy Bolt has returned to production as an EV.
The shocking news is that GM will release EV versions of the Equinox and Blazer, before the Silverado EV. Already, there are approximately 50,000 bookings for the Hummer EV and 110,000 for the Silverado. GM remains behind the demand versus production curve despite the above-mentioned increase. The 2025 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to arrive on the US market in the fall of 2024.
This fully loaded, high-end Silverado Electric Vehicle is available. All the latest technologies and features are included. Our MSRP estimate is $116,000.
