2019 GMC Sierra Concept Redesign
A photographer caught the presence of 2019 GMC Sierra with the camouflaged look. He explained that the appearance of the truck is identical to the prototype of Silverado spotted in February. GM has their best attempt to make this new full-size truck a little bit close to the Ford F-150.
Based on the new images about the truck, we can clearly see the presence of GMC grille design with the nice look. They did not use an oval design that sounds like Ford badge under the camouflage. This change makes it a little bit losing its identity. The truck also has new LED signature for its headlights if we compare it to the 2019 Silverado. To make it as the perfect match for the new Ford F-series truck, GM designed it with the aluminum-intensive bodywork. This information was based on AutoPacific. 2019 Sierra is still under the development and T1CX is its internal code name. They have many modifications in 2018 model, and we think they will not do many things in 2019 model.
2019 GMC Sierra Interior
The photographer caught the camouflaged new GMC Sierra, but he couldn’t present the cabin design of the truck. It is not something wrong if we try to find some hints by looking at what they have been offered in the 2018 model. A few weeks ago, the company launched the all-new Sierra at Detroit for 2018 model year. They replaced the traditional steering column with the new Electronic Precision Shift that will allow the driver to choose from the park, neutral to low modes by pushing a button. This change will be the main highlight to make it more competitive. If there are any complaints, we think they will fix it in 2019 model.
2019 GMC Sierra Engine
In 2018 model, they offered new engine V6 unit and 4.3 liter that is able to make 285 hp. It seems they will not change this engine for 2019 model because it is still new. They also offer two optional engines. First is the V8 and 5.3 liter to make 355 hp, and the second is V8 unit and 6.2 liters to make 420 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. The current EPA is 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway with the acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.3 seconds. The use of aluminum body surely will improve the current performance, so GMC Sierra 2019 is better than before.
Based on some trusted sources, the company will release it to hit the market at the end of 2018 as the 2019 model year. 2019 GMC Sierra is quite promising to be a more efficient, stronger and lighter truck compared to its rivals. It is interesting that the battle with the F-150 will be hotter. The price should not be too far from the current $28,215 as the base and a little bit more than $54,000 for the top model.
