GMC recently unveiled the 2024 Sierra EV, an electric pickup truck with a range of 400 miles and 754 horsepower. It is currently only offered in one configuration, the fully loaded Denali Edition 1. Just a few hours after its online debut, the automaker has announced that reservations are filled and that potential customers must now join a waiting list, as per InsideEVs.
With just a $100 fully refundable deposit, the Sierra EV’s range-topping version was reserved by interested customers. It is not unexpected that customers rushed to get an order with that amount.
Production and deliveries details
How many Sierra Denali EV Edition 1s will be produced? GMC still needs to reveal the specifics. Nevertheless, we are aware that customer deliveries will start in early 2024.
GMC Sierra Denali EV Edition 1’s Performance
GMC claims the Sierra Denali EV Edition 1 has a 400-mile range, 754 hp output, and 9,500 pounds towing capacity. Moreover, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds.
The Sierra EV also has a 350 kW DC fast charging capacity. Thus, a range extension of 100 miles can be accomplished in about 10 minutes.
Elevation vs. Denali
The Sierra EV’s entry-level Elevation trim costs roughly $50,000. It would reach the market by 2025, though. On the other hand, the Sierra Denali EV Edition 1 costs $107,000.
The Elevation trim will be considerably less potent than the Denali even ahead of its specs release. Interestingly, the Elevation’s 400-mile estimated range may be comparable to that of the Denali.
The report explained that the Chevrolet Silverado EV’s base model has a range of 400 miles. While the Sierra and Silverado EVs are built on the same chassis, the top trims of the Sierra and Silverado EVs have similar specifications. These facts make the Elevation trim similar to the mentioned GMC vehicles.
It is remarkable that the company offers a less expensive trim for customers who cannot afford the expensive Denali. However, as mentioned, the Elevation trim will only be available by 2025.
