GMC Expands Electric Lineup with Sierra EV

GMC has introduced the first-ever Sierra EV. Led by the 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1, the all-electric pickup offers a GM-estimated 400 miles of range on a full charge and unique features made possible by its dedicated EV truck platform, the automaker said.

“This is the Denali of EVs — and a truck that is every bit a GMC,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “That means it leaves nothing on the table when it comes to hauling, towing and overall power while unlocking even more possibilities around what a GMC pickup can offer.”

GMC will be the only brand to offer three all-electric trucks, with the Sierra EV joining the popular GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and SUV. Underpinning these three trucks is GM’s Ultium Platform.

The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will be available at launch in early 2024. GMC will introduce the Sierra EV AT4 and Elevation trims in the 2025 model year.

“The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is just the beginning,” said Aldred. “It will offer customers our very latest in technology, capability and luxury delivered in a way only GMC can do — with much more to come. From the HUMMER EV supertruck to the first-ever Sierra EV, GMC continues to write the next chapter in its future as a premium truck and SUV brand.”

The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 offer highlights in four key areas:

Power

  • GM-estimated range of 400 miles (640 km) on a full charge
  • GM-estimated 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque in Max Power mode
  • Onboard Power Station Pro turns Sierra EV Denali into a mobile power source, with up to 10.2kW of off-board power that can be used in a variety of situations
  • 800 Volt DC Public Fast Charging capable at up to 350kW, enabling up to 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes
