Did you want to secure a reservation for the GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1? Well, just a few hours after its online unveiling, GMC has confirmed that reservations are full and that interested buyers must now join a waiting list.
Pricing for the Sierra Denali Edition 1 is expected to start at $107,000 but it could be reserved with a $100 refundable deposit, so it’s hardly a surprise that shoppers wasted no time in securing an allocation.
GMC has not said how many examples of the Edition 1 will be produced but the first customer deliveries aren’t set to begin until early 2024. It is also unclear when reservation holders will be able to convert their allocation into an actual order.

Underpinning the GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 is the same Ultium platform as other GM products. While it is not yet known how big the battery pack is, the car manufacturer says it will be good for approximately 400 miles (644 km) of range.
This battery will send juice to a pair of electric motors combining to deliver 754 hp and 785 lb-ft (1,063 Nm) of torque, giving the truck more power than the Chevrolet Silverado EV and allowing it to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 4.5 seconds. GMC also says it will be good for towing up to 9,500 lbs (4,309 kg) and land with a 1,300 lbs (590 kg) payload capacity. The truck has also been equipped with 350 kW DC fast charging capability, meaning 100 miles (161 km) of range can be added in as little as 10 minutes.
Like the GMC Hummer EV, the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 has also been equipped with a 4-Wheel Steer system that allows the rear wheels to turn in the same or opposite direction as the front wheels, meaning it, too, has a Crab Walk function.
For consumers not willing to spend six figures on an electric truck, Elevation and AT4 variants will be introduced for the 2025 model year, starting at around $50,000.
