General Motors’ premium-priced pickup truck, the GMC Sierra Denali, is going all-electric.
GMC’s new Sierra EV will launch in early 2024 in the popular and pricey Denali trim, with an estimated 400 miles of range and a fully optioned suggested price of $107,000.
In 2025, GMC will offer more moderately priced Elevation and AT4 trims, the former of which is expected to start at $50,000.
The Sierra EV Denali will arrive amid a multidecade love affair between American trucks and car buyers, with pickups accounting for five of the industry’s 10 bestselling vehicles in 2021 despite their increasingly higher prices. General Motors in particular is predicting that electric trucks will sell just as well as their gas counterparts, if not better. The automaker is the latest to bet big money that electric trucks will lead the way in the shift to zero-tailpipe emission vehicles.
GMC’s Sierra EV will be the third electric vehicle from General Motors, following the Hummer EV SUV and pickup. And when it releases in mid-2024, it will join the Chevy Silverado EV in GM’s growing electric truck portfolio.
When it eventually hits the dealership in 2024, the Sierra EV Denali will find several electric trucks already on the market, including the Ford F-150 Lightning, Hummer EV, Rivian R1T, Chevy Silverado, and likely the Tesla Cybertruck.
