The new 2024 GMC Sierra HD models are scheduled to get a substantial facelift next year. Reports say that, in addition to the expected engine upgrades, the company will also make changes to the front and rear ends.
It is also crucial to note that production of this truck was originally scheduled to begin for the 2023 model year, but the manufacturer decided to push it back due to challenges associated with COVID-19 as well as a shortage of superconductor chips. We predict that production will start at the GM Flint Assembly factory in Flint, Michigan, United States of America, this year.
2024 GMC Sierra HD Facelift Details
Some of the official photographs are available, and the 2024 GMC Sierra HD looks refreshed. However, as we saw, the following vehicle will only get some small facelifts at the front and rear end.
To begin with, the front fascia looks substantially bigger as a result of the new grille and the updated headlights. It seems like the bumper as well as the taillights in the rear have been modernized as well. Naturally, everything depends on the trim level that you choose. As before, the Denali, the most expensive model, would have the most features. This model offers new signature grille, lower skid plate, GMC badging finished in Vader chrome, and exclusive 20″ ultra-bright machined Aluminum wheels with high-gloss black accents.
Newer Technologies and Increased Levels of Comfort
The cabins of the 2024 GMC Sierra HD models feature a high level of comfort. The new truck introduces excellent quality materials. The standard touchscreen infotainment system on every current Sierra HD has an 8.0-inch display. However, this might be upgraded to a display that is far bigger in the future. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included as standard features, as are USB-C ports.
It is also essential to highlight that we expect a Bose system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an entertainment system for the rear seats of the vehicle. In a similar way, the most expensive GMC model, the Denali, will get more features.
Specifications of the Engine
The gasoline-fueled 6.6-liter V8 engine that was previously available in previous iterations of the GMC Sierra HD comes standard in the 2024 model. This particular engine generates 401 horsepower in addition to 464 pound-feet of torque. You can also get it with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, as well as a six-speed automatic transmission. It has been estimated that a new model with a 6.6-liter V8 engine should be capable of producing around 450 horsepower.
In addition to that, a 6.6-liter V-8 Duramax diesel engine will be available as an alternative. The Allison 10-speed automatic gearbox is driven by this engine. The engine can make up to 470 horsepower and 975 pounds-feet of torque.
The most powerful Sierra, the 3500HD, has the ability to pull 7442 pounds in its cargo bed and tow 35,500 pounds behind it. On the other hand, the payload capacity of the Sierra 2500HD is 3979 pounds, and its towing capability is 18,500 pounds. This is despite the fact that the Sierra 2500HD is only available with a single rear-wheel axle.
When Will the 2024 GMC Sierra HD Be Released, and How Much It Will Cost?
The price of the GMC Sierra HD is still unknown to us. On the other hand, given all of the aforementioned changes, a rise in price is unavoidable. The base price of the current GMC Sierra HD is $41,995 for the Pro model.
From there, the price increases to $47k for the SLE, $65k for the AT4, and over $71k for the Denali. Production of the truck will get underway this year, and it is predicted that sales will get underway in 2023.
