The Edition 1 will have a starting price of $107,000 and is expected to begin shipping in early 2024. Lower-priced versions of the EV pickup, with a price tag of around $50,000, are expected later that year.
The Sierra will share technology and features with GMC’s Hummer EV pickup and SUV and the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV. One significant difference is the vehicle’s traditional pickup shape, a strategy GMC Brand Chief Duncan Aldred said was intentional.
“It’s going to attract different customers, more traditional truck buyers, whereas the Hummer EV has been attracting people from all brands, people out of exotic sports cars, for example,” Aldred said. “This is going to have a different feel, really appeal to the loyalists.”
The GMC Sierra EV will feature 400 miles of range, fast-charging capabilities, and the popular four-wheel “crab walk” capability, similar to the Hummer pickup and the Silverado. Features of the Edition 1 will include a “max power mode,” which will deliver an estimated 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque, and a version of GM’s Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system that works in conjunction with a trailer.
The Sierra EV will also have the ability to serve as a mobile power source that can power a home for several days during an electricity outage, similar to Ford’s electric F-150 Lightning pickup.
