Americans are not giving up on the idea of creating a new electric pickup. They plan to equip their brainchild with a chassis with swivel rear wheels. Does this remind you of something? There is nothing surprising in this. This car shares the same platform with the relatively recently introduced GMC Hummer EV. The latest and the announced brainchild of General Motors have a lot in common, which can be seen from the video posted on the network by the representatives of the company themselves. When watching the video, one cannot help but conclude that the new generation of Chevrolet Silverado has taken a lot of cool technical solutions from the GMC Hummer EV. Among them is the aforementioned fully controlled chassis. It is this that will allow the rear wheels of the pickup to make turns at different angles (that is, turn in different directions). This feature makes the Chevrolet Silverado more agile. You can feel it, both at a consistently high and low speed (at least that's what the manufacturer says).
There is reason to believe that the new pickup was also borrowed from the latest Hummer "Crab Mode". This is a special Crab Mode system. It is she who allows all the wheels of the car to turn in one direction. This allows the machine to move diagonally. When traveling off-road, on difficult (in particular, narrow) sections of the track, this option becomes indispensable.
General Motors chose the Ultium platform for a reason. It was created as an ideal base for large modern electric cars. At the same time, such a development is compatible with classic power units (not "green"), with batteries of various capacities. It is this feature of Ultium that allowed the GMC Hummer EV to get (in the highest configuration) as many as three electric motors (their total power is more than 1000 "horses").
