The 2023 GMC Sierra EV is reportedly in the works. The upcoming truck will be completely new and it should use the latest General Motors’ electric components. As you may know, GMC recently introduced two new trucks, including Chevrolet Silverado EV and the Hummer EV models.
It seems that the manufacturer will use the same treatment on all upcoming vehicles. However, the forthcoming GMC Sierra EV is likely to be differentiated from the Hummer EV in many things. It will be a full-size pickup truck that will compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning, and it should be cheaper and more work-focused than the Hummer.
2023 GMC Sierra EV Design
In terms of styling, we expect to see something new and different from last year model. The 2023 GMC Sierra EV should be more recognized, considering it’s an electric variant. It will probably feature a closed grille that should be flanked by the LED headlights.
At this point, we’re not sure which trim levels GMC will offer, but the lower models will offer better value for sure than the current Sierra. Unlike the Hummer EV, the GMC Sierra EV will be more of a workday truck than the model for commercial use.
Inside, the forthcoming 2023 GMC Sierra EV should provide more quality materials than the regular model and more comfort. Surely, it will also come with a more modern cabin and probably the same layout. We also can expect more technology and plenty of driver aids.
GMC was last year redesigned the cabin of a regular model and added more gadgets. For the buyers that choose the basics model, the manufacturer offers a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, Bluetooth pairing, and a USB port. However, more options were available, stepping up to at least the SLE trim. This model adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, keyless entry, automatic climate control, Wi-Fi hotspot, and 6-speaker audio system.
2023 GMC Sierra EV Specs
GMC will probably use the same Ultium battery packs that we saw on some of its previous showed models. A rear-wheel-drive one-motor setup is a likely standard on the 2023 GMC Sierra EV, while two-motor or three setups should be available on upper trims.
However, there’s no word yet on the Ultium battery’s capacity levels, but we think GMC will offer various battery sizes. From some reports, the smaller batteries will provide more than 200 miles on a charge, while larger ones may approach a 400-mile range estimate. The fast-charging capability will likely be available as well.
Release Date and Price
The comeback of the famous GMC’s Hummer EV was just the start of the brand’s electric pickup truck journey. As we mentioned, the new 2023 GMC Sierra EV will be a second model that will arrive alongside the Hummer EV. Many believe that the new electric truck will look similar to the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV.
The new full-size pickup will compete with many trucks when it arrives. The main one is definitively the upcoming Ford F-150 Lightning. According to the car and driver website, the base model that comes with a single motor should start at $55,000.
