From the sides the SUV adopts the original Sierra styling with two front door separated from the rear section. The rear section in the SUV also is heavily inspired by the classic SUV although don’t be fooled because the new Sierra.EV is a five door model instead of a three door model.

The black cladding from the sides also extends to the simple rear bumper. It also gets a sizeable silver skid plate in the rear as well signifying that it could be a capable off-roader.
On the inside the current concept model comes equipped with a futuristic looking interior layout with a massive screen in the middle. The air conditioning controls are at the standard position. It gets a retro styled steering wheel with controls mounted on both sides along with a huge instrument cluster screen in front of the driver.
In terms of the drivetrain, it is confirmed that the Sierra will first get an all-electric model hence the name Sierra.EV. However it has also been reported that the company will be launching an internal combustion engine model of this iconic SUV as well.
As of yet the company has refrained from sharing any substantial information regarding the drivetrain options that will be offered with this forthcoming SUV however it is anticipated that electric version of the SUV will also offer AWD set-up dual motors. There will be one motor on each axle that will provide individual power to the front and rear wheels. Meanwhile, it has been reported that the ICE variant will come equipped with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine could potentially produce around 160 Bhp of maximum power.
