Similar to the GMC Hummer EV Pickup and SUV, the new 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is based on the GM BT1 platform, with GM Ultium battery tech and GM Ultium drive motor tech for motivation. Output is applied through the onboard e4WD system, peaking at 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque in Max Power mode, enabling the truck to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. Max range per charge is estimated at 400 miles.

Inside, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 doesn’t skimp on tech, with the cabin space dominated by a 16.8-inch diagonal infotainment screen, the largest screen ever fitted to a production GMC Sierra model. The new EV pickup also includes trailering-capable GM Super Cruise driver assist technology, as well as Regen on Demand Braking, One-Pedal Driving, and 4-Wheel Steer with CrabWalk. The onboard Air Ride Adaptive Suspension can raise or lower the truck by roughly 2 inches.
Additionally, the interior appointment includes high-end materials like open-pore wood, aluminum, and etched stainless steel. Up top is a panoramic fixed glass roof.
In terms of practicality, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 incorporates the GMC MultiPro Midgate, an eTrunk, and a max towing capacity up to 9,500 pounds.
