GM made a splash when it unveiled its $107K GMC Sierra Denali EV last month — but now we know pricing will start at about $50K.
The first version of the new electric truck shown by GM was the top-shelf, ultra-luxe, $107,000 class-leading Denali variant of the GMC Sierra. And, while that truck is definitely awesome, it’s the more accessible, $50,000 version that will likely make up the bulk of the Sierra EV fleet.
That fleet will consist of a number of trim levels, of course, with Elevation, AT4 and Denali being the three that we know of so far. The Sierra EV Elevation slots at the bottom of that trio, offering customers an entry point into the all-electric pickup truck segment — but “entry” shouldn’t be confused with “entry level” in this case.
“Without the need to work around a conventional propulsion system, there was an exciting opportunity to reimagine the Sierra EV with a refined yet bold, next-generation modern style and functionality,” said Sharon Gauci, executive director, Buick and GMC Design. “The Ultium Platform allowed us to design what a truck can offer differently when it comes to appearance, spaciousness and capability. It was an important goal for Sierra EV to be visually distinctive yet maintain the essence of GMC and this can be seen in many elements inside and out. For example, the powerful front shield and strong, continuous body side with machined detailing.”
The GMC Sierra EV should get all the same innovative features and tech as its Silverado EV sibling, set apart with GMC features and styling cues. That’s expected to include features like an eTrunk with power operated hood and a GMC MultiPro Tailgate. The all-electric truck is also available with the GMC MultiPro Midgate and spray-in bedliner.
