The upcoming 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is expected to introduce a few small updates and changes compared to the 2023 model year, and now, GM Authority has exclusively learned when the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 will go into production.
According to sources familiar with the matter, the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is set to kick off on July 17th, 2023. The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 will continue to be produced at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana and GM Silao plant in Mexico. Dealers will be able to order new units starting in June.
The current 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 follows the fully refreshed 2022 model year with a few minor tweaks, including a revised exterior paint options list, with three new hues added to the list, including Deep Bronze Metallic, Sterling Metallic, and Volcanic Red Tintcoat. The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 can be covered in 11 total exterior color options total. That said, Desert Sand Metallic (paint code GTL) is no longer available to order for the remainder of the 2023 model year, per exclusive GM Authority coverage published earlier this month.
Notably, GM applied a price increase to the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 this past November.
As a reminder, the GMC Sierra 1500 is available with four powertrain options. These include the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and finally, the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 305 horsepower and 495 pound-feet of torque. The turbo-diesel was updated for the 2023 model year, replacing the LM2 that was available for the 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 model years.
