Introducing the GMC Sierra EV

Sierra EV | Memphis, TN

GMC is quickly adding more electric vehicles to its lineup. After the Hummer EV, GMC has plans to release an all-electric version of the Sierra. While it could have a unique name, it will likely just be called the Sierra EV. GMC will release this new electric truck as part of its 2023 lineup.

While GM has not released too many details about this new truck, we expect it will be powered by GM’s Ultium battery packs with the option of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It’s expected that the Sierra EV will be available with a variety of battery options to suit different driving preferences. The standard battery option is predicted to offer more than 200 miles of driving range, while the long-range option will likely top out around 400 miles.

Initially, the Sierra EV may be available only in the range-topping Denali trim. Though, other trim options will likely follow later on.

An innovative electric option that we may see on the Sierra EV is an onboard generator that can be used to power appliances or your home. This could be helpful during a weather emergency if your area loses power for a significant amount of time.

GMC Updates 2021 Canyon’s Trim Levels

2021 GMC Canyon - Memphis, TN

The 2021 model year will bring some significant changes to the trim levels of the GMC Canyon, a small pickup truck. Just like its cousin, the Chevy Colorado, the Canyon will go on without its base trim, along with a few other key changes.

 

New Trims

 

The 2020 GMC Canyon used to come in six trim levels: SL, Base Canyon, SLE, SLT, All Terrain, and Denali. The 2021 model will cut that down to four: The Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. While the model is losing some potential combinations of cab size and bed lengths, there will still be 14 different combinations so you can build your ideal truck.

 

AT4

 

The first-ever Canyon AT4 is an off-road specialist that will come standard with a V6 engine capable of generating 308 horsepower. 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, Advanced Hill Descent Control, four-wheel drive with Rear Automatic Locking Differential, and a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case will make it a peerless beast both on and off the road.

 

If you want more torque, opt for the 2.8L Duramax® Turbo Diesel Engine and take advantage of its 369 pound-feet of twist. Luxury doesn’t take a backseat to the rugged capabilities of the 2021 Canyon AT4; heated front seats and a heated steering wheel will keep you comfortable on any road, in any temperature.

 

While we don’t know many more specific details about the upcoming 2021 Canyon, we hope to see you here at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase when it hits lots later this year.
