General Motors unveiled the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali in October of 2022, introducing the range-topping trim of the all-electric GMC Sierra lineup with over 750 horsepower and an estimated range-per-charge of 400 miles. Fast forward to October of this year, and GM announced that it will delay the launch of three of all-electric products, including the GMC Sierra EV Denali. Now, GM has announced when the all-electric GMC Sierra Denali is scheduled to launch.
According to GM, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali is now scheduled to launch during the Summer of the 2024 calendar year. The all-electric pickup was initially scheduled for an early 2024 release, but the launch was later pushed back by a few months.
Back in October of 2023, GM announced that was delaying the launch of the GMC Sierra EV Denali, Chevy Silverado EV RST, and Chevy Equinox EV. The announcement was made by GM CEO Mary Barra in conjunction with the release of GM’s third-quarter earnings report and updated 2023 financial guidance.
“The [software organization] team is optimizing the software strategy in fine-tuning the plans for our new vehicles to help make sure we execute with the highest possible quality and customer experience while positioning the company to drive significant revenue growth from subscriptions in the future,” Barra said this past October.
The 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is the range-topping trim level of the all-electric GMC Sierra lineup, boasting 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque in Max Power mode, sending the pickup from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds, with range-per-charge estimated at 400 miles. Under the skin, the GMC Sierra EV rides on the GM BT1 platform, while GM Ultium battery tech and GM Ultium drive motor tech provide the motivation.
