Exterior

Although it is too early to discuss pricing, it is clear that it will be much more affordable than the Hummer. The Hummer is a more lifestyle-oriented truck while the Sierra Denali will be more utilitarian. The first official preview features a striking front fascia featuring large L-shaped LED lights that are complemented by an illuminated GMC logo and a frame for the grille. Three sequential lights are also available to mirror the Hummer.

2024 GMC Electric Sierra Denali Debuts

The teaser is a long wait considering that we first heard about plans for an electric Sierra one year ago from Lynn Thompson of Thompson Buick GMC Cadillac, Springfield, Missouri. Logic says it will be mechanically similar to the Silverado EV debuting at CES in Las Vegas on January 5, 2022. The GMC will be unveiled later than the Silverado EV, and it will go into production in 2023.

These two electric trucks will be built using GM’s Ultium platform. They will compete against the Rivian R1T or F-150 Lightning, for which Ford already has 200,000 reservations. It is expected that the Silverado will arrive on the assembly line by early 2023. This means it will be the first of the two upcoming EV pickups to go on sale. The GMC Electric Sierra Denali will have rear-wheel steering and large glass roofs, making it more luxurious than its Silverado counterpart.

Specs

The Sierra will debut without a combustion engine when it is fully launched. It should have at least 400 miles range. We don’t know much about the details, but we do know that it will include “premium materials” and the same capabilities customers have come to expect from GMC trucks.
