General Motors teased the first images of the GMC Sierra Denali full-size electric pickup yesterday. The automaker did the tease similar to the GMC Hummer EV truck and only showed the vehicle’s front.
The truck’s square-shaped nose is surrounded by L-shaped headlights and an illuminated GMC logo in the middle. The massive grille in the middle is smooth, and it appears a lighting system will go off when the vehicle is charging.
Other than that, details are slim. We know that the electric GMC Sierra will only be available in the Denali Trim. We understand that the full-size pickup will run on the GM’s Ultium electric vehicle battery platform. Finally, we know that GM’s Factory Zero in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan, will assemble the vehicle.
However, we do not know any specs or when the truck will go into production, nor have we seen a glimpse of the whole truck. Many believe it will go into production in early 2023 like its cousin, the Chevy Silverado EV.
The Silverado will debut on January 5th at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Many assume the GMC Sierra Denali will be very similar to the Silverado in terms of range, specs and cost.
However, both trucks will emerge in 2023 late to the EV truck party. The trucks will need to compete with the already popular Rivian R1T, Tesla Cybertruck and Ford F-150 Lightning, who should all be on the road in 2022.
