2019 GMC Sierra Concept Redesign, Release Date
In the automotive industry, we are not only talking about the hot competition on SUV class, but also some other segments like a truck. Lately, the prototype of Silverado was spotted by some spy photographers in February. Not long after that, the 2019 GMC Sierra was caught with heavy camouflage. It is the part of the attempt from the company to make the truck has similar design to the direct rival, Ford F-150 but the design makes it more like Silverado.
It is clear that the new GMC Sierra 2019 has nice grille design if we look at the spy shots. The company seems doesn’t use oval grille design like Ford does. Therefore, the truck has new identity. In addition, the headlight is completed with a new LED signature. It sounds a big rival for the Ford F-series with the presence of the aluminum body as AutoPacific explains it. Even if the truck is still in the building stage with the internal code name as T1CX, it seems the company will not offer drastic changes. It is because they had worked for many modifications in 2018 model.
No spy shots available for the cabin design of 2019 Sierra. We have no choice unless to open the story about the 2018 model which has been presented at Detroit Auto Show few week ago. They unveiled the all-new model with new Electronic Precision Shift to replace the traditional steering column. The driver now has the ability to choose park, neutral and low modes through a push of a button. The change will be improved in 2019 model because it is the new icon of the truck.
2019 GMC Sierra Engine
The same stories go for the engine department of the truck. Like the interior, no photographer can find the fact of the engine performance. If we look back at the 2018 model, the company provided three engines. The first is the new V6 and 4.3 liters to generate 285 hp. We believe they will keep it for the 2019 GMC Sierra. There are two optional engines. The first is the V8 engine with 5.3 liters of capacity to create 355 hp. The second is V8 engine and 6.2 liters of capacity to provide 420 hp and 450 lb-ft. We think they will keep all engines for GMC Sierra 2019. The difference is that the engines will have better performance because of the lightweight bodywork.
2019 GMC Sierra should hit the market in the late of 2018 with the starting price about more than $28,200 for the basic version and up to $54,000 for the top model.
