2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 Gears Up for Launch with Improved EV Range, Outstanding Electric Capability

2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 Gears Up for Launch with Improved EV Range, Outstanding Electric Capability

2024-04-16

  • The premium, limited-edition version of GMC’s EV pickup is expected to launch with a GM-estimated 440-mile range1 this summer, an improvement over initial estimates
  • The Denali of EVs elevates the game with GMC-exclusive CrabWalk mode, MultiPro MidGate and 10,000 pounds max towing2

DETROIT – GMC has announced the 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will add more all-electric range than originally estimated, expanding an already impressive list of features that will be available from launch.

“Denali has been an industry icon for 25 years and the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 provides customers an exclusive opportunity to be a part of the next chapter,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president, Buick and GMC. “As a limited-run exclusive trim for launch, the Edition 1 is truly the Denali of EVs and represents the pinnacle of GMC.”

Through optimization of the GM Ultium Platform, the EV pickup will come standard with a GM-estimated 440-miles of range1 for the 2024 model year, a 10 percent increase from the originally estimated range of 400 miles. The Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 will also launch with GM-estimated 10,000 pounds of max towing2 and 1,450 pounds of max payload3, an increase of 500 pounds and 150 pounds respectively from initial estimates.

Dealers are currently working with Edition 1 reservation holders on the ordering process.

The Sierra EV features a mix of true truck capability, next-gen power, purposeful technology and signature luxurious Denali design cues inside and out.

Among a packed list of features on Edition 1 is CrabWalk3, a GMC-exclusive feature that, at low speeds, allows the angle of the rear wheels to mimic the angle of the front wheels. This feature — which is also available on the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and SUV — allows for diagonal movement of the vehicle and can provide additional options for drivers when they need to maneuver in tight spaces.

Other key features include:

  • GM-estimated 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque in Max Power mode.
  • 800 Volt DC Public Fast Charging capable at up to 350kW, enabling up to 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes4.
  • Available Super Cruise, the industry’s first truly hands-free advanced driver assistance technology to offer trailering. The technology is expected to be available on about 750,000 miles of compatible roads in the U.S. and Canada by the end of 20255.
  • Air Ride Adaptive Suspension that both enables a more comfortable ride as well as the ability to raise or lower the truck by approximately 2 inches.
  • 4-Wheel Steer, which not only enables CrabWalk, but also enables all four wheels to work together for a smaller turning circle and improved maneuverability.
  • GMC’s first MultiPro MidGate™, which provides a maximum load floor length of nearly 11 feet with the MidGate down and the MultiPro Tailgate’s load-stop open.

Deliveries of the 2024 Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 are expected to start this summer at a final starting MSRP of $99,4956 (including $1,995 DFC).

New 2025 GMC Yukon is Coming, the Next Step in the Brand’s Reimagined SUV Lineup

2024-04-11

DETROIT – Today, GMC shared a glimpse of the refreshed 2025 Yukon, the brand’s flagship nameplate. The 2025 Yukon will be the next GMC SUV launch following the all-new Acadia hitting dealerships this spring.

The image features the 2025 GMC Yukon AT4 and shows its refreshed front fascia, updated headlight and redesigned grille executions.

2024 marks the fifth anniversary for GMC’s popular AT4 trim. Since launching on the Sierra 1500 in 2019, the AT4 lineup has established itself as the industry standard for premium off-road capability. This year also marks the 25th anniversary of GMC’s Denali sub brand, which first debuted on the 1999 Yukon Denali concept.

Earlier this year, GMC announced plans to expand its brand presence into more global markets. The 2025 Yukon will spearhead the brand’s rollout for the first time in Australia, New Zealand and China.

The 2025 GMC Yukon will be revealed later in 2024.
