The 2024 GMC Sierra HD pickup will include rain-sensing windshield wipers (RPO code CE1) among its available safety and convenience options, GM Authority has learned. This is the first time GM has offered the feature on the GMC Sierra‘s heavy-duty variant.
The rain-sensing windshield wipers sense rain and switch on automatically to keep the glass free of water. The system is intended to enhance driver convenience and eliminate or reduce the distraction of needing to flip on the windshield wipers manually.
The new wipers will be standard on four current 2024 GMC Sierra HD trims, including the SLT, AT4, Denali and Denali Ultimate trim levels. Two trim levels, the Pro and SLE, will not offer the rain-sensing wipers in any capacity.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers will also be standard on the new, upcoming trim introduced in the 2024 model year, the GMC Sierra HD AT4X. The AT4X is a trim with even more off-road capability than the outdoorsy GMC Sierra HD AT4.
While GM hasn’t yet provided a full description of the new off-road features of the AT4X, the trim is likely to equip front and rear e-lockers and Goodyear Territory MT tires. It is also expected to feature an increased ride height.
GM is rolling out the mid-cycle refresh in the 2024 GMC Sierra HD, which features an updated exterior including six new paint colors and a revised front bumper, fascia, and grille. The Pro’s interior stays the same, but the SLE, SLT, AT4, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trim levels all get a refresh.
Among other changes, availability of 12-volt outlets is reduced across all GMC Sierra HD trim levels in 2024, with front auxiliary outlets (RPO code KC5) still available only on the base Pro trim. The rear auxiliary 12-volt power outlet (RPO code KPA) has been eliminated from all trims.
However, the refreshed 2024 Sierra HD gains a handful of new features as well. IntelliBeam headlamps (RPO code TQ5), which provide an automatic high beam on/off function in response to the presence of other traffic, are standard across all trim levels, including the Pro, SLE, SLT, AT4, AT4X, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trims. Safety gets a boost from Automatic Emergency Braking being made standard on all trims.
Connectivity and communications will be enhanced on the 2024 GMC Sierra HD with standard GM Global B electronic architecture. Other updates and additions include Wireless Phone Projection (RPO code PPW) to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the option to equip any 2024 Sierra HD with Adaptive Cruise Control (RPO code KSG).
As a reminder, start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 GMC Sierra HD is scheduled for this month. GM Authority was the first to uncover pricing for the 2024 Sierra HD, with MSRPs ranging from $46,295 for a Pro 2500 HD to $100,695 for the range-topping Denali Ultimate 3500 HD.
