Photo By: GMC

The first-ever Sierra EV marks a turning point for GMC, as it expands its portfolio of EV trucks.

Joining the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and SUV the 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will ride on the same Ultium Platform while offering traditional pickup capabilities, enhanced hauling and towing capacities, and a 400-mile range on a full charge. The 400-mile mark is considered the sweet spot for EV usage both on- and off-road and as more auto makers hit this threshold. We’ll be seeing more and more of these vehicles on the trails.

“The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is just the beginning,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “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.”

An onboard power station turns the Sierra EV Denali into a mobile power source with up to 10.2kW of off-board power to jump start a stranded driver, run power at camp, or keep power tools operating for extended periods. Charging is fast with the Sierra EV Denali’s 800-volt DC Public Fast Charging capable at up to 350kW, enabling up to 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes — the best charging capability in the EV truck segment.

Because the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 isn’t constrained by a conventional engine, the design team at GMC had an opportunity to reimagine the layout of the truck to offer more versatility. A GMC-first MultiPro Midgate expandable bed offers room for hauling longer items, while still enabling room for a rear-seat passenger.

The interior of the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is nicely-appointed with a fixed panoramic glass roof that stretches across both the front and rear seats. The glass is infrared reflective and has a UV coating to help keep the cabin comfortable on hot days. The seats are quilted and display the Denali logo on the headrests. The instrument panel is clad in open-pore wood, aluminum accents, and stainless steel speaker grilles. The Sierra EV Denali is a luxury truck, after all.
