General Motors Co.'s GMC brand said Friday it is offering a new 2015 Sierra Elevation Edition, a sporty pickup with special features such as a body colored grille and black-painted 20-inch wheels.

GMC said the special edition will be available at dealers later this year. Pricing has not yet been announced.

"Much in the same way the Sierra Denali and Sierra HD Denali models raised the standard for premium pickup trucks, the Sierra Elevation Edition will surprise and excite customers shopping for a sport pickup," Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of Buick and GMC, said in a statement. "With its striking looks, sophisticated connectivity features and legendary capability, the Elevation Edition raises the standard of what a sport pickup truck can be."

The Elevation Edition is available in two- or four-wheel drive and a 4.3-liter V-6 engine is standard. A V-8 engine is optional.
