Update: Chevrolet announced that the Silverado EV RST’s maximum power is now estimated at 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque, matching the output of the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1. The RST previously was listed with 664 hp in this article, which is now corrected.
That’s the general boilerplate stuff, but what about performance and sideways driving? The Sierra EV has an estimated maximum output of 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque, which we’ve learned is now equal to the peak power in the Silverado EV RST.
The dual-motor layout always drives all four wheels, and in Max Power mode, GMC says the Sierra EV can reach 60 mph in around 4.5 seconds. Four-wheel steering with Crabwalk mode is available, and the truck features an air ride suspension that can raise or lower the rig by as much as two inches. It can tow up to 9,500 pounds and carry 1,300 pounds in the bed.
