The brand-new 2024 GMC Sierra EV is going on sale at some point next year. This truck will be impressive, in any possible way. The automaker intends to provide premium cabin design, futuristic exterior design, and incredible performance.
The range-topping Denali Edition 1 variant will arrive first, later next year, while the rest of the trim levels will hit the dealerships shortly after. No doubt, the new Sierra EV will be an instant hit, for a good reason, so here’s everything you need to know.
Unique Front Fascia
A few weeks ago, the manufacturer revealed the 2024 GMC Sierra EV. This all-electric truck will borrow a lot of styling elements from the base Sierra 1500 model. However, as this is an EV, it will wear a more futuristic design. The front fascia wears a new design, offering a unique lighting system. The L-shaped signatures look amazing, incorporating three horizontal strakes.
Interestingly, these are daytime running lights (DRLs). Where are the headlamps then? Right below the daytime running lights, while the fog lamps will sit below the front bumper. It is a unique layout, but we must say that the front fascia looks astonishing.
GMC Sierra EV Interior
Like the GMC Hummer EV, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV will also first present the most expensive variant. Of course, we are talking about the famous Denali trim level. This truck will offer nothing but luxury, but what about the rest of the lineup? From what we know, Sierra EV will offer exclusively a crew-cab layout. Therefore, the interior will be spacious.
As with any other EV, this one also offers a larger “frunk” up front. Even the base model should provide a high level of comfort and lots of premium stuff. However, Denali trim will offer real leather, open-pore wood, and other upright materials. A 16.8-inch touchscreen will be standard, offering a new infotainment system, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Moreover, an 11-inch digital gauge cluster will be on offer.
Driving Range, Charging Time, Towing Capacity
The 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will be the most potent model. It will incorporate front and rear electric motors, creating a standard AWD system. Moreover, this version will be able to produce 755 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that, the truck will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in around 4.5 seconds. GM will offer air suspension, which comes in handy on off-road adventures. Furthermore, this truck will include a regenerative braking system, numerous driving modes, and a one-pedal driving option.
The towing capacity of around 9,500 pounds should do the job. As for the driving range, Denali Edition 1 will provide 400 miles on a single charge. Fast charging is available as standard, so you can charge a Sierra EV truck at 350 kilowatts. Unfortunately, we don’t know the exact specs of the entry-level model or any other trim level.
2024 GMC Sierra EV Launch Date and Price
From what we know, the Denali Edition 1 model will cost $108,000. Thanks to that, many reports are predicting a starting price of around $50,000 for the base 2024 GMC Sierra EV truck. GM is yet to reveal more details, which should happen in the first quarter of 2023. As for the release date, this truck will most likely go on sale in the third quarter of 2023.
