The GMC Sierra EV Denali Is Teased in a Video

The GMC Sierra EV Denali is teased in a short video before its official reveal, due in three days.

  • The video shows a few details of the electric truck, including a good look at its front end.

  • GMC is likely to aim this truck at a more traditional audience than the Hummer EV pickup

  • It will be unveiled on October 20th

GMC published a teaser video on its Youtube page that shows a preview of the upcoming Sierra EV Denali.

This electric truck will be the counterpart of the Chevrolet Silverado EV in the GMC lineup, which also welcomes another battery-powered pickup: The Hummer EV.

Since Chevrolet and GMC have always shared their truck’s chassis and powertrains, it is likely that the Sierra EV will be closely related to the Silverado EV, which was unveiled a few months ago.

This means that the Sierra EV Denali could have an output of around 664 horsepower from two motors mounted on the axles and it could have a range of about 400 miles (644 kilometres).

The 15-second video gives a glimpse of the truck’s interior and rear end, in addition to showing the front end quite clearly.

From what can be seen, the Sierra EV will have a fully enclosed front end, as most EVs do, with the outline of a grille that is shaped to look like the front ends of current GMC models.

This grille surround is fitted with LEDs and it lights up when the driver approaches the vehicle in a programmed sequence that also includes the GMC letters and the actual headlamps.

Speaking of which, the lights are composed of two elements since the daytime running lights, adopt a shape that is similar to the ones found on the current Sierra pickup, are positioned on either side of the simulated grille while the low and high beams are placed lower in the bumper.

Inside, the leather on the seats will feature a rectangular stitching motif and a large panoramic glass roof will be available. The Denali logo will be embroidered on the headrests.

A full look at the Sierra EV Denali will be possible after the truck’s launch, which will take place online on October 20th.
