Future GMC Sierra, Yukon design may have been teased in sketch
We’re big fans of the GM Design Instagram page as it constantly shines a light on the minds and ways of what’s happening within the confines of the Warren, Michigan Technical Center by showing various themed sketches, highlighting just how much it can be fun to pursue a career in automotive design. And the latest image shared from the page continues to do just that. The sketch itself, created by Brian Stoeckel, shows a GMC truck or SUV cockpit with an oblong steering wheel, massive head-up display and user-friendly instrument layout. Some of these shapes and colors, like bronze accents and rocker gearing, are found on the 2022 GMC Hummer EV and GMC Sierra 1500.
The biggest things that stand out in the sketch are the less rounded steering wheel, although it’s not as abstract as the Cybertruck. There also appears to be a massive start/stop button, which the Chevy Silverado EV lacks entirely. The sketch’s caption reads: “A beautiful blend of technical elements and soft texture. Demonstrating modern GMC precision. Perhaps this is a preview of the next Sierra EV? We’ll have to stay tuned. The same goes for the 2024 GMC Yukon, which is set to debut with a major refresh inside and out.
It doesn’t specify what platform the vehicle is referring to or when it was made, but it does appear to be inspired by the 2022 Sierra 1500 and Hummer EV to some extent. As for the materials, the “soft texture”, presumably micro suede or something, provides an overall premium look and feel, something you might find on the Neiman Marcus Special Edition Hummer EV or GMC Sierra 1500 Ultimate models. Tech Bronze accents can be found inside the Hummer and also appear prominently in the sketch, along with double woven stitching throughout.
The GMC Sierra 1500 features a large screen with a 13.4-inch-diagonal main hub and a 12.3-inch-diagonal customizable digital cluster; the sketch looks similar if not a bit larger than this and seems to blend in a bit better with the dashboard. The 15-inch head-up display is also featured in both the sketch and as a standard feature of the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. And while this new sketch from GM Design is a good thing, the scan is unlikely to change. anytime soon.
