Everyone has been waiting for the official confirmation for 2019 GMC Sierra release date, expecting the hypes of all the updates and upgrades. Is it going to be as good as promised? Is it going to be worthy of all the hypes? We can only wait and see for further news and updates.
GMC is said to develop and work on the new Sierra 1500 truck. It seems that the company has come to the final stage where they have done several tests within the last months. All of them, of course, wear heavy camo that won’t allow you to see the details. However, there are some things to know from the pickup truck about the newest style and design.
The exterior element will definitely get the most revolutionary changes with some changes happening on the style. The new front end will come with the traditional GMC’s six side grille. The bumper is likely bigger with restyled LED headlights. The rear end will come with wrapped design. It is also possible that the new truck will get new taillights and also tailgate. Some of the already noticeable changes include the rectangular dual exhaust outlets but we haven’t seen the detail or got the updates about the overall performance.
The changes are still coarse and far from being perfect, but a lot of people have anticipated the 2019 GMC Sierra release date to get clearer idea about how the truck will look like – as well as how the performance is going to be. Besides the exterior changes, there will be interior updates too. Hopefully, there will be better premium materials and addition of infotainment system that will improve comfort and convenience.
Construction and Design
For the construction, it is claimed that new Sierra will be coming with lighter body without using too much aluminum material. Unlike Ford with their F-150, GMC will combine high quality and strength aluminum and steel. Despite the new lightweight feature, the overall construction will be rigid and also solid. Towing capacity as well as payload will get the same update as well.
Engine and Specs
One of the reasons why people are anticipating the upcoming 2019 GMC Sierra release date is because of the option for the engine. It is possible that Sierra will use the existing V8 5.3 liter unit as well as using the V8 6.2 liter unit. However, GMC is thinking about replacing the V6 4.3 liter engine with the V6 turbocharged engine. It is even possible that they are going to add diesel line to compete against RAM and also F-150. If GMC is going to use the diesel line, they are going to use the Duramax system. If all of these arrangements are true, they will be paired with automatic 10 speed transmission, affecting the fuel economy system.
It is possible that the new Sierra will be introduced during Detroit International Motor Show 2018, with a tag price of $30,000. The exact 2019 GMC Sierra release date hasn’t been confirmed but it is somewhere in 2018.
