The price information is not yet available for the 2023 GMC Sierra electric pickup truck. However, the base model of the Sierra EV will likely cost around $50,000 – $60,000. GMC indicated that the Sierra EV will be a more workaday and affordable truck than the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup, which has a starting price of $79,995 MSRP. 

GMC has not yet released the full list of trims for the Sierra electric truck, other than the Denali trim that it showed in the “Shock and Awe” sneak peek reveal video. However, like the gas-powered Sierra 1500, the lower-priced trims of the Sierra EV will likely offer greater value, while the higher-priced trims will be more luxurious with many premium features. With the GMC Sierra EV Denali trim, electric truck buyers will most certainly be treated to a great deal of luxury.

2023 GMC Sierra EV: Similar to the 2023 Chevy Silverado EV truck

The GMC Sierra 1500 shares the same body and mechanical components as the Silverado 1500, but with a more upscale design with more luxurious amenities, especially for the interior. The 2023 GMC Sierra EV and 2023 Chevy Silverado EV pickup trucks will likely follow this setup in a similar fashion.

With the “Shock and Awe” sneak peek video this week, GMC only revealed the front of the Sierra Denali EV. With the bold front end, striking L-shaped lights, and directional turn signals, the Sierra EV looks similar to the Chevy Silverado EV. Like the Hummer EV, the Sierra EV has lights that illuminate a large logo on the grille.
