Two of the most anticipated trucks of 2024 are the new Chevrolet Silverado EV and EV. Both are based on the GMC Hummer EV monster truck that debuted earlier this year, and this truck comes with massive power and many special features. But GMC is GM’s luxury truck brand, that is. What’s the one advantage GMC will have that Chevrolet won’t?
Only the GMC Sierra EV has the Crab Walk feature
According to Doug Demuro in a new video about the Silverado EV, only GMC will get the Crab Walk feature. While Chevrolet’s Silverado EV will get four-wheel steering, it won’t get the funky lateral driving capability that GMC will. With all four wheels turning in the same direction allowing the truck to drive sideways. In the Hummer EV, it can only be engaged at low speeds and disengage if you’re going over 25 mph.
Maximum power mode allows for maximum acceleration. It’s GMC’s version of Chevy’s Wide Open Watts, or WOW mode. The Sierra is aimed at the mature luxury buyer, and as such, GMC relinquished the WTF moniker for its ultra-quick acceleration mode.
How much does the GMC Sierra EV cost?
The best-in-class Denali Edition 1 truck is supposed to cost $107,000. This truck will have all the options and should be on par with the current luxury Denali versions. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2024, or about four months after the start of deliveries of the Chevrolet Silverado EV. However, GMC promises that the trucks will be available with an MSRP of around $50,000.
The GMC Sierra EV will come with several packages, including an AT4 off-road version. The Elevation version should be less expensive. However, from its first run, you may have to wait several years for Sierra EV delivery.
