The forthcoming 2023 GMC Sierra EV is allegedly under development. The next truck will be totally new and will likely use the newest electric components from General Motors. As you may be aware, GMC released two new vehicles lately, the Chevy Silverado EV and the GMC Hummer EV.
The company appears to be applying the same tech to all forthcoming cars. The next GMC Sierra EV, on the other hand, should be distinguished from the Hummer EV in a number of ways. It will be a full-size pickup truck that competes with the Ford F-150 Lightning and it will be more affordable and work-focused than the Hummer.
2023 Sierra EV Exterior Design
In terms of style, we anticipate something new and distinct from the previous year’s model. Given that it is an electric version, the 2023 GMC Sierra EV should garner more attention. It will almost certainly have a closed grille flanked by modern LED headlights.
At the moment, we don’t know exactly the trim levels GMC will offer, but the entry-level variant will undoubtedly provide a better value than the current Sierra. Unlike the Hummer EV, the GMC Sierra EV will be a daily driver rather than a business vehicle.
On the inside, the upcoming 2023 GMC Sierra EV should have higher-quality materials and a higher level of comfort than the standard model. Certainly, it will have a more contemporary cabin and, most likely, the same layout. Additionally, we may anticipate increased technology and a plethora of driver assistance systems.
GMC updated the inside of a standard model last year and added extra features. The manufacturer offers a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the latest phone integration, Bluetooth connection, and USB ports. Of course, the highlight will be GM’s brand-new Super Cruise hands-free driving system. We expect to see even more luxury once this all-electric model debuts.
GMC is very certainly going to employ the same Ultium battery pack as shown on some of its earlier revealed models. A rear-wheel-drive, single-motor configuration will be available as standard on the 2023 GMC Sierra EV, with two- or three-motor configurations available on higher trim levels.
However, there is no news on the capacity of the Ultium battery at this time, but we believe GMC will offer a range of battery capacities. According to some estimates, the smaller batteries would travel more than 200 miles on a single charge, while the larger batteries may reach a 400-mile range. Fast-charging functionality will very certainly be included as well. No doubt, this is going to be the best Sierra pickup truck so far.
2023 GMC Sierra EV Price and Release Date
The reintroduction of GMC’s iconic Hummer EV was only the beginning of the brand’s electric pickup truck adventure. As previously stated, the upcoming 2023 GMC Sierra EV will be a companion vehicle to the Hummer EV. Many assume the new electric truck will resemble Chevrolet’s forthcoming Silverado EV. The price is not available yet, but expect the Sierra EV to start at around $60,000. The sales should begin later next year.
