Fixed Glass Roof
Who knows where the 2024 Sierra 1500 EV will take its passengers? However, they won’t ever have to worry about missing a thing, thanks to the fixed glass roof panel. Not only will the panel provide excellent overhead views, but the glass is treated with special coatings to keep heat and unwanted UV rays out of the cabin.
An innovative platform, like the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 EV, requires innovative features to meet the needs of its future owners. The MultiPro Midgate provides additional cargo bed space.
