2024 GMC Sierra 1500 Plans for Refreshed Work and Update Project

The 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 has several development plans that will determine its future. Aside from the fact that the company will differentiate the Sierra 1500 from other lineups (such as RAM 1500 or Ford F-150), they will also produce the EV lineups to improve performance and interest point for the truck. There would be improvements and updates, no doubt, but there would also be new technologies and promising features that earn Sierra its badge name.

The Upcoming Update

GMC wants to differentiate their Sierra 1500 from the ‘mechanical sibling’ of Chevy Silverado by packing the Sierra with premium materials and exclusive (feature) content. This is a crucial matter because competition has been fierce and tough within the full size truck sector. Let’s not forget that the market has been dominated by names as RAM and Ford F-150. In the 2024, there would be 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 EV which would help GMC step their game up. Not to mention that the electric truck is said to be able to cover 400 miles in a single (electric) charge.

General Overview of Sierra 1500

GMC wants to develop their own plans when it comes to their SUVs and pickup trucks lineups. Their light duty Sierra 1500, for instance, is scheduled to get major update work for the 2022 model, so they would only do small tweaks and improvements for their 2023 model as well as the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 model. On the contrary, their heavy duty lineups of 3500HD and 2500HD would get the updates for the 2024 models, which mean that Sierra fans should wait patiently if they want their hands on those improvements. The major refresh work would include new interior, new rear and front end styles, and also powertrain unit updates.

Range, Powertrain, and Performance

GMC has developed plans for their Sierra lineups, including the small details that make the truck reliable and worthy. The non electric Sierra 1500 would be coming with several options. The main one would be the four cylinder turbocharged unit with 2.7 liter capacity, the V8 unit with 5.3 liter capacity, the V8 unit with 6.2 liter capacity, and the six cylinder turbodiesel unit with 3.0 liter capacity.

And for the all electric Sierra, GMC has their own plans. They haven’t revealed the details, but if Chevy Silverado EV is the indication of what Sierra electric would look like, it means that GMC would try their best to generate 664 hp and 780 Nm of torque, as well as 400 miles. And since it would be an electric ride, it should have DC fast charge as the standard equipment – along with other features and equipment that haven’t revealed just yet.

Safety Features

Safety has become a main concern for the company and its lineups. And the Sierra 1500 would be packed with only the top-notch and good safety features that improve driver (and passengers) protection. The auto emergency braking and forward collusion alert would be the standard safety features. There are also lane change alert, side blind zone alert, auto high beams, and front pedestrian braking included within the package. The company also offers Super Cruise, an impressive driving assist technology along semi-auto and hands free cruising for the highway. These features are impressive and amazing. Even when compared to the Autopilot technology from Tesla, the Super Cruise is far better.

Production Timeline

GMC has their own plans (and timeline) when it comes to Sierra EV. They will be producing the electric vehicle in their Hamtramck manufacturing plant in Detroit. The production will start in 2023, and the launch time should take place soon enough afterwards – considering that it is designed as the 2024 model. The production may start after the launch of Hummer SUV. Silverado EV is scheduled to start the production in the beginning of 2023, in the meanwhile the 2022 Hummer EV would start their delivery to customers around this time of the year.

If everything goes as planned, then the electric version of Sierra would be offered only for Denali. It means that you may have to dig deeper into your pockets, compared to the regular Sierra. But if compared to the Hummer EV pickup, the electric Sierra would be more affordable. We should wait for GMC to reveal their updates for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500.
