After an unexpectedly long wait, Chevrolet finally brings the retail version of its new, all-electric pickup to market with the arrival of the 2024 Silverado EV RST.

Ford has long been the king-of-the-hill in the full-size pickup market, outselling all competitors, domestic and foreign. So, it’s no surprise to see it determined to rule the off-road segment, as well. With the big F-150 getting a major update for 2024 that means a new version of the rugged Raptor R, as well.

Whether Stuck in Sand or Snow or Driving Into Walls, Owners are Wrecking Cybertruck’s Image

But a series of recent social media posts raise serious questions about the truck’s actual capabilities — or at least the skills of its early owners who’ve gotten stuck in sand and snow and even driven into a wall at the Beverly Hills Hotel, knocking off a wheel in the process.
