The next electric GMC pickup truck has a reveal date.
On Friday, GMC teased the Denali edition of its upcoming Sierra EV with a video, and confirmed its debut date of Oct. 20.
The production truck appears to be nearly identical to that of the renders teased in 2021
LED taillights (that somewhat resemble the lightning elements from the 2022 GMC Hummer EV), a large panoramic roof, and quilted leather cooled front seats are also teased in the video.
GM said it intends to build 1 million EVs in North America annually by 2025, including some 600,000 electric pickup trucks. The automaker’s spending $4 billion to convert its Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Michigan to build the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV.
These pickup trucks, along with the GMC Hummer EV, are all based upon GM’s Ultium EV platform
The Silverado EV features rear-wheel steering to help shrink the big truck’s turning radius, and it’s expected the GMC Sierra EV Denali will feature the system as well.
