The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 represents the sixth model year of Big Red’s fifth generation full-size pickup. For the new model year, the Sierra 1500 features only a few updates and changes compared to the preceding 2023 Sierra 1500 as well as the refreshed 2022 model.
Among the changes to the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 were the deletion of a few exterior colors from the truck’s available palette and their indirect replacement by two new hues for 2024. Today, we’re looking more closely at all the paint colors available for the 2024 pickup.
As GM Authority reported back in April, two previously available paint colors are being phased out from the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. These include Pacific Blue Metallic (color code GA0) and Sand Dune Metallic (GTL), which were originally introduced with the 2019 and 2022 model years, respectively. Their indirect replacements are the Downpour Metallic (GXP) and Thunderstorm Gray (GNO) paint colors.
After these changes, GM offers a total of 11 exterior paint colors for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. Availability of these colors is distributed across the eight trim levels of the 2024 Sierra 1500 – Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, Denali, AT4X, and Denali Ultimate – as shown on the following table:
|Paint Color||Color Code||Cost||Pro||SLE||Elevation||SLT||AT4||Denali||AT4X||Denali Ultimate|
|Deep Bronze Metallic||GXN||$495||-||-||A||-||A||-||-||-|
|Dynamic Blue Metallic||GLT||$495||A||A||A||-||A||-||A||-|
|Titanium Rush Metallic||G6M||$495||-||A||A||A||A||A||A||A|
|Volcanic Red Tintcoat||GNT||$645||A||A||A||A||A||A||A||-|
|White Frost Tricoat||G1W||$1,095||-||-||-||A||-||A||-||A|
- Downpour Metallic no longer available on Elevation as of November 2023 production.
Summit White (color code GAZ) is the only no-charge exterior color. It’s available across all trim levels except the Denali Ultimate. All other paint colors for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 are extra-charge, with most priced at an additional $495. Volcanic Red Tintcoat (GNT) is priced at $645 while White Frost Tricoat costs an extra $1,095.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is motivated by a significant lineup of powerplant options. These include the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (now branded as TurboMax), rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine producing 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine generating 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.
One significant engine change for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is the use of the LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax as the standard power source for the off-road-oriented 2024 GMC Sierra AT4X. The atmospheric L87 V8 engine, formerly the only powerplant for the Sierra AT4X, is now available as an option.
Under the body panels, the GM T1 platform continues to provide structure for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500. Production is currently under way at both the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana and the GM Silao plant in Mexico.
