It is the next generation of durability and performance in the GMC line-up.
The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is all new from the wheels to roof top and from the front grille to the tailgate.
This is the new generation of GMC pick-up that has truck enthusiasts talking and planing ahead for a test drive when they start arriving at dealership lots.
There has been a lot of speculation about how this new model will lead truck design into the next decade and when it arrives this fall it will no doubt be one of the most sought after vehicles on the market.
The new Sierra 1500 has a lot to offer from both performance and engineering design to driver and passenger comfort and convenience once you are in the cab.
With its distinctive GMC chrome accented front grille and LED headlights, the Sierra makes a bold statement on the road.
With a slightly higher profile, longer wheel base, and sharpened proportions the Sierra cuts a distinctive silhouette that is unmistakable. Dual rectangular exhaust outlets cap off the tail end.
The new highly innovative tailgate is one of the most talked about features of this new truck. Along with best-in-class bed volume, more tie-downs, better steps and in-box lighting, the multi-pro tailgate allows for several configurations. A built in load stop secures long items and an inner gate can be folded down to allow closer access to the box. A new additional fold down step provides easy access to the bed when loading heavy items.
The revolutionary tailgate design has to be seen to appreciate what great engineering went into this design.
The box is also new and made from carbon fiber that can resist dents, scratches, and corrosion better than competitors.
In keeping with GMC’s legendary toughness, the Sierra has two new powerful engines available.
A new advanced 6.2 L V-8 mated with a 10-speed transmission or a 5.3 L V-8 with an 8-speed transmission provides exceptional hauling and trailering.
These two new engines are designed for advanced fuel economy and provide excellent fuel savings when at cruising speed.
Coming soon, a 3.0 L Duramax Diesel will be available.
The Dynamic Fuel Manager can shut down as many as seven cylinders at cruising speed to maximize fuel efficiency and has automated stop / start technology.
Engineered with more aluminum body parts on the doors, hood, and tailgate while maintaining structural integrity with high tensile steel, the Sierra has shed around 350 lb in over all weight with the new design.
Inside, the interior has received an all new design that makes driving on long excursions as much fun as arriving at your destination.
The drivers cockpit has been designed for a wrap-around feel with controls that are easily accessible and reach out to you. The instrument cluster is bold, detailed, and easy to read. The Sierra surrounds the driver with at-a-glance information from the the heads-up display, infotaintment screen, and driver information centre.
The Sierra is the first ever pickup with multi-colour 3×7 Heads-up Display and Rear Camera Mirror.
Step up to the Denali trim level and you have premium leather seats and real wood trim and aluminum accents that make this cabin unlike any other truck on the road.
There are a variety of high-tech driver assist functions available to aid you when you’re on the road.
These include Surround Vision, Lane Change Alert with side blind Zone Alert, Rear CrossTraffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking, and more.
When it comes to towing, the Sierra has always been known as a capable vehicle for hauling a boat or trailer. The Denali and SLT version feature the new ProGrade trailering system so you can tow with confidence while providing better visibility of what you are hauling.
If your route takes you off the main road, the new Sierra AT4 is designed specifically for off-road challenges.
The Canadian release date for the 2019 Sierra will be the fall of 2018. It is purpose-built to deliver style, advanced technology, and off-road capability.
With a suspension that rides two-inches higher, the AT4 provides added ground clearance for off-road driving.
