GMC will roll out the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali much like it did the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV supertruck. It will start first with an expensive Edition 1 that is loaded with all sorts of bells and whistles. A second phase of less expensive vehicles will be released later as 2025 models.
2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1
- 400 mile range
- 754 horsepower
- 785 lb.-ft. of torque
- 9,500 pounds of trailering - 1,300 pounds of payload
- 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 4.5 seconds
- CrabWalk and 4-Wheel Steering
“This is the Denali of EVs — and a truck that is every bit a GMC,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “That means it leaves nothing on the table when it comes to hauling, towing and overall power while unlocking even more possibilities around what a GMC pickup can offer.”
GMC will be the only brand to offer three all-electric trucks. The 2024 Sierra EV will join the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and HUMMER SUV. All three trucks will be built on GM’s Ultium Platform. The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will be the first Sierra EV launched in early 2024. GMC will introduce the Sierra EV AT4 and Elevation trims in the 2025 model year.
“The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is just the beginning,” said Aldred. “It will offer customers our very latest in technology, capability and luxury delivered in a way only GMC can do — with much more to come. From the HUMMER EV supertruck to the first-ever Sierra EV, GMC continues to write the next chapter in its future as a premium truck and SUV brand.”
GMC Sierra EV Will Have Better Charging and More Utility
800 Volt DC Public Fast Charging will enable up to 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes. That will be the best charging capability in the EV truck segment.
The 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1’s Power Station Pro allows the truck to be used as a mobile power source. The 2024 Sierra EV offers 10.2kW of off-board power through up to 10 outlets that can help power tools and other accessories on the trail or at a campsite. When properly equipped, the Sierra EV Denali’s Power Station Pro can even power another EV.
If the buyer outfits the Sierra EV with the right equipment, such as a bi-directional charger and additional products and services offered through GM Energy’s Ultium Home line, the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 can power a home’s essential necessities, for up to 21 days.

Unique Sierra EV Storage Solutions
The Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will only be offered in a Crew Cab model with an integrated 5-foot, 11-inch cargo bed. Its storage capacity extends to 9 feet between the cab and tailgate when the MultiPro Midgate is opened.
A 60/40-split second-row seat offers four configurations that allow users to haul gear or equipment while still accommodating a passenger, and an available tonneau cover allows longer items such as a kayak or windsurfing board to be stowed under a lockable, weatherproof cover.
GMC’s popular MultiPro Tailgate is also standard on the 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1. When the tailgate is down, the maximum load floor length extends to nearly 11 feet with the MidGate down and the MultiPro Tailgate’s load-stop open.
At the front of the vehicle, the spacious eTrunk offers lockable weatherproof cargo space with two drains. The front trunk also has a 120-volt power outlet.
2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 Production
