We anticipate that this full-size electric Pickup will be less expensive than the Hummer and more equivalent to the forthcoming Silverado EV.
GMC has confirmed the production of a second full-size electric Pickup truck.
We believe it will be connected to the forthcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV.
It will most likely be less expensive and less efficient than the GMC Hummer EV.
Chevy just unveiled an electric Silverado pickup truck, so we should’ve known a GMC counterpart wasn’t far after. GMC chairman Duncan Aldred verified this on a teleconference yesterday, revealing that GMC will release a second full-size electric pickup truck as an addition to the Hummer EV.
While the Hummer is a pricey, strong, off-road-capable halo vehicle, we have a feeling the upcoming GMC electric pickup will become more mainstream than the Sierra 1500 gas trucks. Numerous components are anticipated to be shared with the Silverado EV, with aesthetics being the primary distinction between the two vehicles.
Beneath, GM’s Ultium battery packs will be featured, with powertrain combinations ranging from one to three motors. The electric Silverado from Chevy has a distance of up to 400 miles, and we can anticipate the GMC truck to have a comparable range.
GMC didn’t provide price details, but we have to believe that this unidentified truck would be much less expensive than the Hummer, which costs $79,995 for the base model due in 2024. To stay competitive, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will offer many options starting around $60,000, and we can expect GM to soon follow the Silverado EV and GMC truck.
The exact release date for this GMC electric vehicle is unknown at this moment, but we anticipate it around 2023 or 2024, at about the same period as the Silverado EV. Before the complete vehicle, including the GMC model’s moniker, is released, we should know more in the near future.
