What to Expect From Chevy Next Year

Chevy drivers have access to some of the coolest cars on the planet. Though 2024 has barely had a chance to start, your Chevy dealer is already planning for 2025.

Right now, it might be hard to sort through some facts, fiction, and speculation posted on the internet about Chevy’s 2024 and 2025 lineup, but Chevy has thankfully released plenty of information to lay a lot of rumors to rest without giving everything away.

Read on to discover some of the confirmed facts about some of the very exciting things that are soon to come, along with some of the details that Chevy is still playing close to the chest (for now).

The Silverado EV

RUMOR: Chevy is discontinuing the Silverado as we know it, and all Silverados going forward will be electric.

FACT: Certainly not in 2024, probably not in 2025.

The truth is that the Silverado EV will join the Chevy lineup in 2024, but traditional gasoline-powered models like the Silverado 1500 and the HD series we know today will still continue to exist. That may change someday, but not in the foreseeable future.

GM’s Ultium EV platform is opening possibilities across the Stellantis group manufacturers, and the Silverado is the latest nameplate to step into the electric future. With this power source, the Chevy Silverado EV is capable of 754 hp, 785 lb-ft of torque, and towing loads up to 10,000 lbs. The range of a full charge is 400 miles.

Chevy’s e4WD system offers greater traction and control thanks to its ability to gauge and deliver torque to all of its wheels all of the time. Additionally, the four-wheel steer system allows all four wheels to turn at the same time, allowing for really tight turns. The result is the most maneuverable, responsive Silverado of all time.

Furthermore, the Silverado is a fully functional pickup truck. In addition to its towing prowess, the Multi-Flex midgate and Multi-Flex tailgate allow drivers to configure their five-foot, eleven-inch truck bed to accommodate cargo up to ten feet and ten inches in length. And, for those valuable pieces of equipment, under the hood is an eTrunk, which is lockable and weatherproof; it’s also lit, so you don’t lose the little things in the very back corners.

And, with GM Energy PowerShift and the GM Energy Vehicle-to-Home Enablement Kit, you can use the Silverado EV to power your entire home. If you’d prefer to just plug in a light at the campsite, though, there are several plugs in the bed and cabin to help you with that simple task, as well.

So yes, there will be an electric Silverado in 2024, but it will not be the only option for full-sized pickup truck drivers to consider. This is Chevy, after all, so options are part of the experience.

The 2025 Tahoe & Suburban

RUMOR: Chevy is discontinuing three-row SUVs.

FACT: Chevy is giving the Tahoe and the Suburban a massive makeover for the 2025 model year.

The Suburban is an actual American icon, so it’s impossible to believe that Chevy would discontinue this model without a ton of fanfare. Furthermore, as one of the top-selling full-size SUVs in the world, a lot of folks would notice if the Tahoe disappeared.

Instead, all Suburban and Tahoe models—starting with the base LS trim—will receive a fully refreshed interior and exterior design. This includes a new front design and custom touches on each trim, such as the skid plates and high-approach front fascia on the adventurous Z71 trim or the authentic wood and wingtip leather interior of the High Country trim.

While the current 5.3L V8 will remain the standard choice for most Tahoe and Suburban trims, the High Country will include Chevy’s famous 6.2L V8, which is optional on RST, Z71, and Premier trims, as well. However, the big news for the 2025 Chevy Tahoe and 2025 Chevy Suburban is the upcoming diesel engine option. Originally offered on the Silverado 1500, the second-generation 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel inline-six engine will be offered on all trim levels.

New safety features include Interior Motion Detection, which senses movement in the car when it’s parked and turned off. The innovative Connected Cameras feature includes a full system of cameras inside and around the exterior of the vehicle; this allows for greater security and provides clarity in the event of an accident, as well as having dash cam capabilities, along with cloud-based storage of recordings.

So not only will the Tahoe and Suburban be sticking around for at least another generation, but they’re also going to be even more well-equipped as the ideal American family road trip vehicle. What better way to cruise in the summer than behind the wheel of a vehicle designed to keep you and your family safe?

The 2025 Bolt EV & Corvette ZR1

RUMOR: Just about everything you’ve heard.

FACT: GM and Chevrolet are playing it very close to the pocket with further 2025 updates.

This is not at all surprising at this stage, however, as GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra has publicly confirmed that Chevy will introduce a new generation of the Bolt.

The Bolt is, of course, not new; it’s been around since 2017. For this new generation, Chevy plans to increase its EV’s range, as well as address affordability while ensuring drivers have access to state-of-the-art technology and engineering.

Chevy has been almost completely silent about the 2025 Corvette, but many experts and enthusiasts feel very confident that this will be the year of the next ZR1 or the introduction of the Zora.

The 2017 Corvette C7 ZR1 holds the record for the most powerful production Corvette. That model took Chevy’s 6.2L engine, supercharged it, and turned it into 755 hp—but that was back when front-mounted engines were still a thing. Now that Corvettes have adopted the mid-engine design, this opens new opportunities; so, what if the ZR1 had a super-tuned version of the Z06’s 5.5L V8 with forced induction?

Or, even more exciting, what if this is the time for the Zora? Named after Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Father of the Corvette, this engine allegedly provides 1,000 hp, 975 lb-ft of torque, and would be a dream come true for many long-time Corvette aficionados.

Looking Into Chevy’s Crystal Ball

The internet is a beautiful thing when it comes to gathering information and connecting with folks who have similar interests, but rumors and gossip can make that information-gathering a little difficult at times.

While it’s hard to hold our breath and wait for further official announcements from GM and Chevy, it’s good to know the facts as they stand today. Gasoline-fueled, non-electric pickup trucks will continue to be manufactured for the foreseeable future, though the Silverado EV will be a strong option for those who are interested.

The Suburban and Tahoe are also not going anywhere but up, with new style and refinement for 2025. While we know there will be a next-generation Bolt, we don’t have so many details yet, and the next super-Corvette remains a complete mystery, other than the fact that it will be very powerful and awfully impressive.

Stay tuned, America, because great things are coming from Chevy.
