As the automotive world rapidly grows into EV technology, GMC goes gun blazing with two revolutionary electric vehicles. General Motors unveiled the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV in the latest release, generating hype for the popular pickup nameplate. 
However, the
new Chevy Silverado EV
isn't the first of its kind in the production lineup. All we have now is beefed-up wrangles between the Silverado EV and the dominant
all-electric
Hummer. And that brings us to head-to-head GMs' spec comparison.

Performances: Hummer three motors vs. Silverado EV two motors

Despite both trucks sharing the same electric powertrain, the newly resurrected Hummer EV churns out more power. The bottom level trims both churn out around 600hp, while the top of the range trim can produce up to 1,000 hp and over 700 lb-ft of torque.
The Chevy, meanwhile, is significantly less powerful. According to
Edmunds
, the Silverado EV features only two electric motors with the top trim (RST) which can offer about 664 hp, as well as roughly 500 lb-ft of torque. 

High power modes

It only takes the Silverado RST less than 4.5 seconds to reach 60 mph, a mark it achieves after a switch into sport mode—which increases torque to almost 800 lb-ft.  
The Hummer claims to be even quicker, with the carmakers insisting that it can go from 0-60 in under 3.0 seconds. It’s a figure that’s yet to be tested on record—so the actual number might not be that impressive.
Chevy Silverado is best for towing
The Silverado EV's maximum towing capacity for the standard model is 8,000 pounds, slightly higher than the Hummer, which only tows 7,500 pounds. Both trucks fall under the same weightload rating because they can only accommodate 1,300 pounds of payload. 
With both trucks using GM's novel Ultium battery technology, Silverado EV tends to cover distances more easily, with about 400 miles of range on a single charge. On the other hand, the Hummer EV is estimated to have 350 miles of driving range per charge. 

Hummer novel removable roof Vs. Chevy Silverado fixed glass roof 

Nothing impresses drivers quite like flashy styling, and the Silverado EV and Hummer EV provide prospective buyers with interesting features. 
The Silverado is adorned by black-and-white two-tone leather beauty, combined with red piping. By introducing a fixed glass roof, Chevrolet's designers have curated a unique and classic look for the Silverado EV. 
In addition, all Silverado EVs come with a standard digital dashboard featuring an 8.0-inch digital gauge display and an 11.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. The RST features upgrades with a 17.0-inch infotainment screen and an 11.0-inch gauge display. 
Meanwhile, the Hummer EV appears roomier with its interior opening up to the elements through a novel removable roof. When in place, the panoramic transparent glass sunroof gives the truck a convertible vibe, similar to that of a Jeep Gladiator. 
Hummer EV now features a 13.4-inch infotainment display and a 12.3-inch digital gauge display. 

Get affordable truck insurance
