Mary Barra speaking on Bloomberg just reported that the 2023 Chevy Silverado
RST 1st Edition EV Pickup Truck sold out in 19 minutes. Priced at $ 108,695.00 including
destination, the only question remaining is how many units were in the initial offering.

I took a (non-binding) reservation for an RST (regular production edition) this afternoon. Dealer has informed me to expect delivery in the spring of 2024. GM has stated the 1st Edition RST units will start shipping in the fall of 2023. Interesting that my deposit was paid to my dealer, not General Motors.

"Mary Barra speaking on Bloomberg just reported that the 2023 Chevy Silverado

So the 1st Edition is going to come out 9 months AFTER the 2nd Edition Work Truck?

🤔

Looking to purchase the standard RST, not the 1st Edition. Will be replacing a 2015 BMW X5 Diesel, that has been a wonderful vehicle. No major (or even minor) problems thus far, and a constant 34+ miles per gallon.

$108k....is that a typo? I'm not impressed if thats true. I guess it will be a niche vehicle that's not geared towards the people who buy the current trucks for everyday driving/family use.

Lightning is just as expensive on the top model.
Corrected:

Both Lightning and Silvy EV Work Trucks start around $40K, but the Chevy will have 250-300mi range per C&D versus 230mi for the Ford. Here’s what C&D says:

“We also don't know the range of the $39,900 WT, but we expect it to be like the lower trim levels of the Hummer EV, which GMC currently estimates will span from 250 to 300 miles.”



EDIT: Hmmmm, re-reading the presser I'm not sure the $40K WT will offer full 400mi range. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. The initial WT configuration will offer 400mi...but possibly priced over $40K. How much, I don't know. There's no explicit mention of a short-range version but it says things like:

"In spring 2023, the Silverado EV will debut a WT model offering GM’s longest range battery with an expected GM-estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge...After production ramps up, Chevrolet will unleash the full Silverado EV portfolio, including WT (with a starting at MSRP of $39,900 + DFC)... "

Since you are one of the people leaving a high-end German make for a Chevy truck, I'm interested to hear what about it got you jump ship from BMW where an ICE Chevy truck couldn't.

Once the lower cost trim models come online, I wonder how much the Silverado EV will cannibalize sales from the Hummer EV
I'm thinking not much due to the Hummer's styling/image vs. the Silverado's more conservative looks.

Congrats! I hope it is worth the little wait.

Also am curious why the jump from diesel BMW to an electric truck? The RST is sure sharp looking in an Avalanchey way.

You are better off with the 3.0 liter 10 speed

I thought the same thing but it's been reported those initial Work Trucks will be available commercially only.
So it's 2+ years away; outside offering up a few fleet models to limit the damage the Lightning is going to inflict.

That at least makes a little sense, "damage control".

You are behaving exceptionally bearish about GM's EV reveals today, Ed.

I was looking at a BMW X5 in December of 2015. I had owned diesels before and honestly, was attracted to BMW because I knew that the VW diesel scandal would make them impossible to sell. Between BMW incentives, and the dealership raising the white flag, I purchased two of them (X5d and X3d) at $ 18,400 and 14,150 off list. They have been wonderful vehicles.

I have not driven a diesel Surburban, but will before I finalize my Silverado EV purchase. I leased a 2014 Chevy Volt, and very much enjoyed driving it in EV mode. I would probably have purchased it when my lease ended, but winters in New York are cold, and the heat output in the Volt was to say the very least; lacking.

Those are some good deals on the BMW's!!! Can't wait to see what you end up getting - diesel Suburban or Silverado EV.
