The All Electric concept car uses the General Motors eCrate electric transmission. Under the hood of the car is a 200 hp electric motor. and 361 Nm of torque. There is also a 60 kilowatt-hour battery that allows you to travel 70 to 150 miles on a single charge.

For comparison, the current ISV modification uses a 2.8-liter 4-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel engine, which produces more than 186 hp. and 500 Nm of torque. It is assumed that the novelty will be able to work with all-wheel drive. In this case, the electric motor must transmit power through the transfer case.

GM Defense has also changed the look of the ISV by placing the body of the pickup at the rear. The load compartment floor is made of the same carbon fiber as the GMC Sierra. The ISV modification, which GM Defense intends to supply to the US Army, uses approximately 90% of finished parts from existing vehicles, especially from the Colorado ZR2 pickup.
