Officially unveiled all the way back in October 2022, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV is set to direct the future of Big Red’s, as well as General Motors’, all-electric lineup. Now, GM Authority spy photographers have captured a nearly production-ready example of the upcoming 2024 Sierra EV Denali, and today, we’re taking a closer look in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
This particular Sierra EV is finished in the range-topping Denali trim level, and seemingly features the Edition 1 package. Painted in White Frost Tricoat (color code G1W), this unit appears to be almost production ready, missing just a few trim pieces.
Up front, the LED headlight assemblies appear to be production-spec. However, the frunk assembly is unpainted – and missing any appropriate badging – clearly indicating that this unit is a prototype. In addition, the lower front fascia is also unpainted and missing some trim pieces.
Moving around to the side, most of the side profile aligns with GM’s official rendered photos we’ve seen thus far, which includes body-colored door handles and side mirrors. However, this particular unit is missing the lower-body trim pieces that surround the assist steps. That being said, this Sierra EV does feature massive 24-inch wheels, which will be the largest fitted to a production vehicle yet.
Out back, we see the GMC MultiPro tailgate, which isn’t adorned in any sort of badging. Production-spec taillights are mounted on either side, while the rear bumper is unpainted.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will be the first Sierra EV variant to launch, and is currently scheduled for early 2024. This will be later followed by the 2025 Sierra EV AT4 and 2025 Sierra EV Elevation trims.
In regard to powertrain specifications, the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 model develops a maximum of 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque thanks to GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium Drive motor technology.
