Interestingly, even the representative of GMC itself reveals some details of the product. The pickup truck will be one of the new electric series with around 1000 horsepower, and it offers up to three electric motors. Yes, it sounds impressive anyway.

As information, Hummer here refers to a standalone brand. But interestingly, the company, General Motor, is interested in combining both GMC and Hummer. The combination produces an SUV truck with a bigger and higher body. In the front part of the car, the Hummer badge is seen as more significant than GMC. It is not known why they are presented like that, but it doesn’t lessen the fact that the upcoming product from GMC-Hummer is worth waiting for.

2021 GMC Sierra

  • Status: Redesigned
  • MSRP: $31,195 to $60,095 (est)

2021 Chevrolet Silverado

  • Status: Redesigned

The interior may be slightly more significant, and there are some new infotainment features.

There are also introductions of new details and features, mainly in terms of the off-road variants. Updates must also be available, although those are not significant. The previous Chevrolet Silverado has performed well with great power. So, it is possible if the engine is upgraded but only in a minor way. Chevrolet also probably provides some variants of Silverado. Meanwhile, the limited edition series can be released as well.


Just like choosing other types of cars, choosing a truck needs many considerations. Moreover, numerous products are available in the market with their pros and cons. Make sure to select one of them in which the performance is good and the effect that meets your necessities. One of the essential features to present in a truck is the off-road capability. It is reasonable if this matter must be in the chosen car.

Interestingly, today’s truck is no longer coarse, just like many old products. Many new series of the car are designed very well with sleek and sophisticated looks. It just makes a truck more stylish and stunning, making it suitable not only to load goods but also for other necessities like a vacation.
