PostHeaderIcon 2019 GMC Sierra MultiPro Tailgate V.S. 2019 Ram Multifunction Tailgate

It’s the dawn of a new age for pickup trucks these days as the RAM 1500 and the GMC Sierra square of in a battle of wits involving their respective…tailgates. Unlike in the past where pickups are usually compared by the amount of power they produce or the amount of weight they can carry or tow, we’re entering a new frontier where the term “trick tailgate” is about to become one of the most important elements of a pickup, if it isn’t there already. GMC was the first to showcase its six-function MultiPro tailgate in 2018 on the Sierra truck. It took some time, but RAM has responded with its own trick tailgate, known as the MultiFunction tailgate, at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. So, now that we’ve seen both tailgates and tinkered with them on separate occasions, which of these two is better? For that, we look at the Tale of the Trick Tailgates.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra HD AT4

When we used to talk about pickup trucks a decade ago, the general notion was a barebone truck that only knows how to lift weights. It was also taken for granted that, since they are tough vehicles, even off-roading would be easy. But, like we all know, a pickup truck is not automatically qualified to explore untraveled or non-existent roads. Fast forward to 2019, and GMC has launched a truck called the GMC Sierra HD AT4 that is muscular, can travel off-road without showing its ’jungli-ness’, and has an interior that can put well-loaded sedans and SUVs to shame. We finally have a heavy duty version of the Sierra AT4, so let’s check it out, shall we?

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra HD

GMC trucks are like the school students who don’t top the class, but they don’t fail either. They are never in the spotlight for good or bad reasons, with the exception of when the Sierra debuted with that new MultiPro tailgate. The GMC Sierra HD has been living in the shadow of its competition, the Silverado HD, and despite having a lot of things in common, it has never been able to trump the Chevy. However, it looks like the Sierra is trying to break those shackles with the 2020 model. The Sierra HD looks to have gotten rid of its flaws, and this time, it promises to be a well-packaged truck that can prove to be a serious threat to the competition.

PostHeaderIcon GMC Could Take GM on the Path of Electric Trucks and SUVs

General Motors is prepping itself well for the rEVolution. Recently, it announced that Cadillac will be converted into an electric luxury brand, and now, it looks like GMC will be taking the same route. CNBC reports that GMC may be considering an all-electric line up of SUVs and pickup trucks. Do Tesla and Rivian have anything to worry about?

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 GMC Sierra HD

GMC didn’t take long to respond to the 2019 Ram HD, and it did so with this gem – the 2020 GMC Sierra HD. GMC Bills this oversized beauty as the most capable truck to ever wear a GMC badge, and we’re impressed. It features a pro-grade trailering system that includes 15 different camera views (maybe you can trust your wife to back up the trailer?), and there’s a new smart feature that will allow you to remotely test the trailers electric and light system with ease. This monster is powered by a 6.6-liter Duramax that’s good for 445 horsepower and a gut-churning 910 pound-feet of torque, all of which is channeled through a new Allison, 10-speed automatic transmission. Put all of that together into one package, and you have a truck that GMC claims can tow “well in excess” of 30,000 pounds. With all of this in mind, and the downright menacing look of the new HD kid on the block, we’ve decided to feature it as our wallpaper of the day. You can download our favorite or choose some from the gallery below.

PostHeaderIcon The Best Full-Size Pickups Ranked from Last to First

The best full-sized pickups in the market are often those that give you the best of a lot of worlds. It’s not enough for a pickup to look good or boast a luxurious interior. It’s not even enough to have the most powerful engine. A good pickup has all of those things to go with impressive handling and driving qualities, as well as towing and hauling capabilities. Like the image the segment presents as do-it-all vehicles, a good pickup has to, quite literally, do it all. That said, not every pickup can do it as well as some of its contemporaries. There are those that excel in a few things but don’t much up as well in other respects. Then there are those that not only excel at one thing; they excel at everything. On that end, we’ve made a list of the best full-sized pickups in the market today, ranked from last to first.

PostHeaderIcon GMC is Slashing up to $4,500 off the GMC Sierra HD in October 2018

In the midst of heavy competition, GMC is offering a new cash incentive program to the tune of $4,500 on any new 2018 GMC Sierra HD. The nationwide incentive comes at a time when competition in the highly lucrative quarter-ton and one-ton heavy-duty pickup market is as high as it’s ever been. If dealing with its current rivals isn’t enough, the Sierra has also had to account for new entrants like the Nissan Titan XD that are making their presence known in the market. The $4,500 incentive applies to all 2018 GMC Sierra HD models, though those who are interested must abide by a number of conditions, including taking delivery of their pickup by October 31, 2018.

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra Denali

Just like its predecessor, the Sierra Denali sits at the top of the GMC Sierra lineup, itself a more upscale version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The fourth-generation pickup truck broke cover in March 2018, a few months after Chevrolet debuted the new-generation Silverado it is based on.

At the forefront of the premium pickup market since 1999, the GMC Sierra Denali steps into a new generation with redesigned everything. Larger and bolder, the truck benefits from new state-of-the-art technology, and a new transmission. It also boasts many industry-first features, including a carbon-fiber box, a multi-function tailgate, and a rear-view camera. Power continues to come from the familiar 5.3- and 6.2-liter V-8s, despite the fact that GMC just introduced a diesel V-6 option for the regular Sierra.

PostHeaderIcon 5 Trucks To Consider for Hauling Heavy Loads

We often get blinded by the horsepower wars among sports cars and supercars that a lot of us don’t pay enough attention to the pickup truck battlefield where horsepower isn’t as important as torque and towing capacity. These heavy haulers may not have the kind of power that Ferraris and Ford Mustangs have, but when it comes to pulling weight on top of its own, the competition is as cutthroat as it is the performance segments. Whether its towing capacity, max payloads, or just all-around usefulness and reliability, these five pickup trucks are the best options to get to where you need to go if you’re hauling some heavy weight

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra Elevation

GMC has introduced the Sierra Elevation, a new trim level of the Sierra that will sit between the ALT and AT4 offering customers a rugged pickup with a shot of off-road chops to go with it. The Sierra Elevation will get a host of exclusive digs to complete its status, all of which are being included to infuse the pickup with a commanding look to go with natural truck capabilities and functionality that all Sierra pickups are known for.

PostHeaderIcon Comparison: Is the GMC Sierra AT4 a Solid Alternative to the Ford F-150 Raptor?

GMC just launched a new-generation GMC Sierra that redefines the luxury pickup truck segment through its imposing looks, premium interior, and segment-first carbon-fiber bed. But General Motors also used the new Sierra to introduce a new model line for GMC vehicles. It’s called the AT4 and adds extra features inside and out and a lift kit. With the Sierra more capable in off-road terrain in this setup, truck enthusiasts can’t help but wonder whether the AT4 is a good proposition for the mighty Ford F-150 Raptor. To answer this question, I’m going to have a closer look at both trucks in the comparison below.

PostHeaderIcon GMC’s AT4 Treatment will Extend to the GMC Canyon, Acadia, Yukon and Others, Replacing the All-Terrain Trim Level

GMC is at the New York Auto Show to showcase its latest offering, the Sierra AT4. It’s understandable if you’re not familiar with the nameplate because it’s an entirely new off-road brand that the automaker is offering to appeal to potential customers who want sprinkles of premium goodness to go along with their off-road needs. The Sierra AT4 is the first GMC-branded truck to get the trim, but other GMC models like the Canyon, Yukon, and Acadia will get their own AT4 versions in the future.

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra AT4

The pickup truck war is hotter than it’s ever been in the U.S. right now. While Ford has an all-aluminum F-150, GM just launched a brand-new GMC Sierra with an industry-first carbon-fiber bed. Ram is also going strong with a fresh 1500 model. Attracting more and more customers into dealerships is not an easy task, and this is where special models and limited editions come in handy sometimes. With a brand new Sierra 1500 on its way to dealerships, GMC just unveiled a new model. It’s called the Sierra AT4 and combines enhanced off-road ability with extra standard features and more premium appointments.

Designed for the customer “who wants an elevated presence on the road and the capability to venture off life’s beaten path,” the Sierra AT4 also marks the debut of a new trim that will be offered on every GMC model in the next two years. Whether specs will be similar, it remains to be seen, but all we know is that the Sierra AT4 rides higher than the standard pickup truck and comes with an extended list of standard features. But despite boasting more luxury and sitting higher above the ground, the AT4 isn’t GMC’s highly anticipated response to the Ford F-150 Raptor. But let’s find out more about this trim in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon GMC Sierra

General Motors first launched the GMC Sierra back in 1998, following it up with the upscale Denali trim level a few years later. Now, the latest 2019 model year is bringing with it a generational changeover, debuting in a live event in Detroit and broadcast on the Internet. Previewed in the range-topping Denali and SLT trim levels, the latest Sierra gets a variety of cool new features and technologies, including improved utility for the light-duty half-ton with a MultiPro tailgate and carbon fiber bed, plus new styling to help it stand out a bit more from its mechanically identical cousin, the Chevrolet Silverado.

2019 GMC Sierra Exterior

  • Looks bigger, bolder
  • New grille design
  • C-shaped headlights get LEDs for DRLs
  • Optional 22-inch wheels
  • MultiPro tailgate offers new functionality
  • Carbon fiber bed adds toughness, cuts weight
  • 63 cubic feet of space for short box
  • Larger exterior dimensions

“The new exterior design makes the truck appear bigger and bolder than before, especially in front with the new chrome grille.”

As you might expect from any generational changeover, the 2019 model year for the GMC Sierra brings with it a significant aesthetics update. The new exterior design includes a host of changes that make the truck appear bigger and bolder than before, especially in front, where we find a new chrome grille that’s larger than that of the outgoing model, with a huge, polished surround and several vertical tiers for the reflective inserts. The hood is also taller, with a rounded top that gets a few sinewy muscle lines leading back into the windshield. Further down in the fascia is a new design for the headlight housings, which maintain the traditional C-shape of the older models, but now stand taller and use squared projectors. There’s also a new design for the taillights. Adding an extra premium touch are the LED lighting elements, which were added to the daytime running lights, taillights, and fog lamps as well.

In the corners, buyers will have a chance to equip optional 22-inch wheels. These large and in charge rollers use an aluminum construction and feature an Ultra Bright finish on Denali models, plus a darker finish with chrome accents on SLT models. Finishing touches include a large Denali badge added to the tailgate, now using a bolder block typeface.

Beyond the fresh looks, the 2019 model year GMC Sierra also gets a new, rather novel design for the tailgate. Check it out in the following promo video:


“Beyond the fresh looks, the 2019 GMC Sierra also gets a new, rather novel design for the tailgate.”

It’s almost like another tailgate was added to the original tailgate, sort of like a tailgate inception if you will. GMC is calling it the MultiPro, and frames it as “the most innovative pickup tailgate ever.” The automaker also says the MultiPro underwent “more testing and validation than any tailgate in GM’s history.”

Why so much work for a tailgate? Well, users can configure it into six different positions, offering loads of unique features as a result, such as second-tier loading, new load-stop solutions, and a standing workstation, not to mention providing easier access to stuff in the bed with a step-up entry and egress.

The MultiPro tailgate has a weight capacity of 375 pounds, and uses two buttons for operation and the inner gate release, plus it includes a hand hold spot to make it easier to walk up and down. The MultiPro tailgate is equipped as standard on the SLT and Denali trim levels.

Next up on the list of new practicality features is a carbon fiber bed (note, this is a true carbon bed, not just a bed liner). Dubbed the CarbonPro, GMC boasts that the composite box offers the best-in-class dent, scratch, and corrosion resistance, calling it “the most durable pickup box in the segment.” The CarbonPro replaces the standard steel inner panels with the popular lightweight material, shaving off around 62 pounds in the process. The CarbonPro will be offered later in the model year.

“Dubbed the CarbonPro, GMC boasts that the composite box offers the best-in-class dent, scratch, and corrosion resistance.”

“In 116 years of making GMC pickup trucks, our industry-first carbon fiber box is the toughest and most durable pickup box we have ever made,” says vice president of Global GMC, Duncan Aldred.

Furthermore, the 2019 GMC Sierra is said to offer the best-in-class cargo volume, with upwards of 63 cubic feet on the short box model. Additionally, there are now more tie-downs on offer, as well as a 110-volt outlet. If you forego the carbon bits, you’ll get a traditional bed made from roll-formed, high-strength steel, now with 50 percent added strength this time around.

Finally, the next-gen GMC Sierra is larger dimensionally, measuring in with a taller height and a longer wheelbase. It even has larger tires than the outgoing model.

“If you’re looking for upscale treatment stuffed into a truck package, the Denali is the one to get.”

As we dive into the improvements found inside the cabin of the 2019 GMC Sierra, let’s begin at the top and work our way down. With that in mind, we’ll kick things off with the premium Denali trim level, followed by the next-best SLT trim level.

Indeed, if you’re looking for upscale treatment stuffed into a truck package, the Denali is the one to get. In addition to offering the best-in-class headroom and legroom in front, the Denali also gets lots of premium materials throughout, such as leather upholstery for the seats, open-pore wood trim on the center tunnel, and dark-finish aluminum on the center console. The leather uses a large-pebble grain and contrast stitching, which means it’ll look and feel fantastic.

New for 2019, the Sierra crew cab offers an extra 3 inches of rear legroom. The outboard seats also fold down and get discrete storage compartments that can house important items like laptops or tablets, and there is a higher seating position this time around as well.

In a segment-first, the 2019 Sierra gets a multi-color heads-up display, which can be customized to display the data of your choice. The display is measured at 3.0 inches in height and 7.0 inches in width. The 2019 Sierra is also offering a segment-first Rear Camera Mirror, which projects a feed from the tail-mounted camera into the rear-view mirror in the cabin. The Camera Mirror helps drivers see around obstructions, such as tall rear-seated passengers or large cargo in the bed, using a high-resolution camera that can be manipulated with a tilt and zoom feature as desired. Buyers can also get a regular reflecting mirror if desired.

“Technology features include an available suite of safety stuff, such as a Side Blind Zone Alert, Pedestrian Detection, and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking.”

Further technology features include an available suite of safety stuff, such as a Side Blind Zone Alert, Pedestrian Detection, and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking. There is smartphone-esque tile app operation for the infotainment system, which is based on the GMC IntelliLink platform. Denali models come with a standard 8.0-inch infotainment screen with navigation. There’s also improved voice recognition, and an available surround-view vision feature with a bird’s eye perspective, which is great for when you’ve got a trailer and need to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

2019 GMC Sierra Drivetrain

  • 6.2-liter and 5.3-liter V-8’s updated
  • New 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel
  • More efficient this time around
  • Available 10-speed automatic transmission

2019 GMC Sierra - image 771294
“In addition to updates to the 6.2-liter and 5.3-liter V-8s, there's also an all-new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel option.”

New for the 2019 model year, the GMC Sierra comes proper with an expanded powertrain lineup. In addition to updates to the
6.2-liter and 5.3-liter V-8s, there’s also an all-new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel option.

Let’s start with the ‘eights, which arrive with the latest start/stop technology to help save a few bucks at the pump, as well as Dynamic Fuel Management that will deactivate up to seven of the cylinders when cruising to up mpg even further.

Exact power levels for the engines have yet to be revealed, but we’re expecting modest improvements over the current 5.3-liter’s 355 horsepower and the current 6.2-liter’s 420 horsepower.

Now to the diesel six-cylinder, which hails from GMC’s Duramax lineup, which also includes powerplants found in the Sierra HD and Canyon.

As for transmission options, a 10-speed automatic gearbox is offered on the 6.2-liter and 3.0-liter diesel engines. The 5.3-liter is expected to get the same eight-speed automatic as the outgoing model.

2019 GMC Sierra Chassis And Functionality

  • ProGrade trailer system is standard on higher trims
  • Full suite of trailering technology
  • Available adaptive ride control
  • Extra aluminum cuts 360 pounds

2019 GMC Sierra - image 771298
“The 2019 model year comes with a new ProGrade Trailering System as standard on Denali and SLT trim levels.”

While fancy grilles and the latest technology are all well and good, at the end of the day, the GMC Sierra is still a workhorse kind of machine. To that end, the 2019 model year comes with a new ProGrade Trailering System as standard on Denali and SLT trim levels. The system includes a Trailering App, which offers up useful things like a pre-departure checklist, maintenance reminders, a trailer light test, trailer electrical diagnostics, and a trailer tire pressure and temperature monitor. Several of these features can also be had on the MyGMC app, which offers iOS and Android support.

The rest of the trailering technology suite includes features like Hitch Guidance, Hitch View, and an Auto Electric Park Brake. Further electronic assistance can be had with the available side-view cameras and trailer-mounted high-definition camera, and there’s also Trailer Theft Detection, which will send you a text if your trailer is detached without your permission.

The Denali can also be had with Adaptive Ride Control, which uses a variety of sensors to monitor parameters like road conditions and chassis response, and can be used to adjust the damper settings in as little as two milliseconds.

The 2019 GMC Sierra is also lighter this time around, with aluminum used for the doors, hood, and tailgate. All told, the latest Sierra is 360 pounds lighter than the outgoing model.

2019 GMC Sierra Prices


2019 GMC Sierra - image 771295

Sales for the 2019 GMC Sierra commence this fall. Exact pricing details are expected for release closer to the on-sale date. For reference, the current SLT trim level starts at $47,000, while the Denali trim level starts at $55,000.

2019 GMC Sierra Competition

Ford F-150


2018 Ford F-150 - image 700456

When it comes to competition, it doesn’t get much more robust than the best-selling vehicle in the world. But that’s precisely what the 2019 GMC Sierra is up against when it comes to the Ford F-150. The iconic Blue Oval just got a refresh last year, gaining a tweaked exterior style, new safety tech bits, and a few new upgrades under the hood as well. Base models come equipped with a 3.3-liter V-6, while the turbo 2.7-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter get more power. A 10-speed automatic arrives as standard on all models except the base one.

Read our full review of the 2018 Ford-F-150.

Ram 1500


2019 Ram 1500 - image 760707

Ram is also in on the action in this space, with an all-new Ram 1500 revealed recently for the 2019 model year. Offering features like a Uconnect infotainment platform and 5.0-inch screen, plus Bluetooth support, a ParkView back up camera, and electric park brake, there’s plenty of tech on board, while the best-in-class V-8 towing up to 12,750 pounds and a max payload of 2,300 pounds keeps it doing the work you need. There’s also available active suspension and loads of premium cabin touches to keep it comfortable.

Conclusion


2019 GMC Sierra - image 771290
“We’ll have to see where the competition goes next, but so far, the 2019 GMC Sierra makes for a rather enticing package.”

While having a truck that can handle all the big jobs is important, having one that’s comfortable at the the same time is most definitely appreciated. GMC knows this, and the next-gen Sierra brings the goods in a number of areas to entice buyers.

“The heritage of the GMC brand is rooted in full-size trucks, of which the Sierra is our cornerstone, without SLT and Denali models contributing 87 percent of our total crew cab sales,” said vice president of Global GMC, Duncan Aldred. “The next generation Sierra caters to those unique customers who demand a premium, innovative truck that supports their professional and personal passions.”

In the realm of “don’t work harder, work smarter,” we’re really liking the new MultiPro tailgate. On paper, it’s a pretty clever idea, and we’re eager to try it out in person.

We’re also really liking the available carbon fiber bed. Saving weight while adding toughness makes a lot of sense, plus it just looks really cool.

Toss in the new turbodiesel powerplant, and things are looking good for the Sierra.

Of course, we’ll have to see where the competition goes next, but so far, the 2019 GMC Sierra makes for a rather enticing package.

  • Leave it
    • * Some of the features could be seen as a bit “gimmicky”
    • * Heavy competition
    • * Premium upgrades could make for a rather pricey truck

PostHeaderIcon GMC Debuts The 2019 Sierra, Goes Upscale And High-Tech

We just got the rundown on the new GMC Sierra, courtesy of a live-streamed debut event showing off the core SLT trim level and premium Denali trim level. Upgrades include new gear for towing, hauling, safety, and convenience, plus there’s a new diesel engine option as well. Read on for all the details.

The Full Story


GMC Debuts The 2019 Sierra, Goes Upscale And High-Tech - image 771333
“Dimensionally speaking, the 2019 Sierra is larger is every way. It's longer overall, it's got a longer wheelbase, it's wider, and it's taller. It even has bigger tires.”

The all-new next-gen Sierra is here, and so far, it looks like GMC did things right.

Let’s start with styling and aesthetics, where the front end goes big on the chrome details. The traditional C-shaped are in place with LED lighting elements, and the taillights get LEDs as well. The front overhang is now shorter, while the Denali gets a new three-dimensional grille design. The Denali also gets 22-inch aluminum wheels with a shiny Ultra Bright finish, while the SLT gets 22-inch aluminum wheels in a dark finish.

Dimensionally speaking, the 2019 Sierra is larger is every way. It’s longer overall, it’s got a longer wheelbase, it’s wider, and it’s taller. It even has bigger tires.

No doubt the larger exterior dimensions help the 2019 Sierra achieve its larger cabin space as well, which GMC says offers the best-in-class head and legroom in front. The seating position is higher, while the crew cab model gets an extra 3 inches of rear legroom. A rear seat-back storage compartment also provides an out-of-view space for important items, such as a laptop. Buyers looking for more plush surroundings can get into “the most premium Denali ever,” which now offers hand-stitched leather, real aluminum trim, and, in a model first, open-pore wood.

“One of the most useful bits of tech is a new rear-facing camera that provides a live feed in the rear-view mirror, which is useful to see around obstructions like cargo and passengers.”

The list of tech is long, and includes a heads-up display with 3-inch by 7-inch dimensions. The Denali also gets a standard 8.0-inch infotainment screen with navigation. The Sierra now offers additional connected features, with smartphone-like operation for the UI. One of the most useful bits is a new rear-facing camera that provides a live feed in the rear-view mirror, which is useful to see around obstructions like cargo and passengers. Drivers can also adjust parameters like the tilt and zoom for an even clearer view. Further safety stuff includes pedestrian detection, surround vision, and side blind zone alert, plus a full trailer assist tech suite, which can monitor things like trailer tire temperature and tire pressure.

The new Sierra is now over 300 pounds lighter than the preceding model, thanks in part to an aluminum hood and gate. An adaptive ride height helps you grab the hitch, while the Denali gets a standard adaptive suspension set-up.

There’s a larger, stronger cargo box too, measuring in at 7 inches wider than before. Options include an industry-first carbon fiber bed, which GMC is calling the CarbonPro. This composite cover saves around 62 pounds and offers “best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance.” Look for it on the options list later in the year.

Getting stuff in and out of the bed is now easier thanks to the new configurable tailgate, which comes as standard equipment on the SLT and Denali. Dubbed the MultiPro tailgate, it offers multiple tiers and six unique positions (step-ups, standing workstation, and more) to ease loading and unloading, and can even hold up to 375 pounds.

Engine options include a 5.3-liter V-8 and a 6.2-liter V-8, both of which come with start/stop

tech and individual cylinder management. There’s also a new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel.

Both the 3.0-liter and 6.2-liter are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Sales will kick off this fall. Look for more info when the 2019 GMC Sierra makes its auto show debut at the New York Auto Show on March 26th.

We just got the rundown on the new GMC Sierra, courtesy of a live-streamed debut event showing off the core SLT trim level and premium Denali trim level. Upgrades include new gear for towing, hauling, safety, and convenience, plus there’s a new diesel engine option as well. Read on for all the details.

The Full Story

“Dimensionally speaking, the 2019 Sierra is larger is every way. It's longer overall, it's got a longer wheelbase, it's wider, and it's taller. It even has bigger tires.”

The all-new next-gen Sierra is here, and so far, it looks like GMC did things right.

Let’s start with styling and aesthetics, where the front end goes big on the chrome details. The traditional C-shaped are in place with LED lighting elements, and the taillights get LEDs as well. The front overhang is now shorter, while the Denali gets a new three-dimensional grille design. The Denali also gets 22-inch aluminum wheels with a shiny Ultra Bright finish, while the SLT gets 22-inch aluminum wheels in a dark finish.

Dimensionally speaking, the 2019 Sierra is larger is every way. It’s longer overall, it’s got a longer wheelbase, it’s wider, and it’s taller. It even has bigger tires.

No doubt the larger exterior dimensions help the 2019 Sierra achieve its larger cabin space as well, which GMC says offers the best-in-class head and legroom in front. The seating position is higher, while the crew cab model gets an extra 3 inches of rear legroom. A rear seat-back storage compartment also provides an out-of-view space for important items, such as a laptop. Buyers looking for more plush surroundings can get into “the most premium Denali ever,” which now offers hand-stitched leather, real aluminum trim, and, in a model first, open-pore wood.

“One of the most useful bits of tech is a new rear-facing camera that provides a live feed in the rear-view mirror, which is useful to see around obstructions like cargo and passengers.”

The list of tech is long, and includes a heads-up display with 3-inch by 7-inch dimensions. The Denali also gets a standard 8.0-inch infotainment screen with navigation. The Sierra now offers additional connected features, with smartphone-like operation for the UI. One of the most useful bits is a new rear-facing camera that provides a live feed in the rear-view mirror, which is useful to see around obstructions like cargo and passengers. Drivers can also adjust parameters like the tilt and zoom for an even clearer view. Further safety stuff includes pedestrian detection, surround vision, and side blind zone alert, plus a full trailer assist tech suite, which can monitor things like trailer tire temperature and tire pressure.
