GMC’s most popular pickup truck is getting an upgrade.
GMC, a division of Detroit-based General Motors Co., announced it is making some changes for 2019 with the GMC Sierra Denali and SLT.
With new design details and added technology, GM believes the new Sierra models will fit in with their plans to release more premium cars and trucks.
“GMC ignited the premium truck segment 17 years ago with the original launch of the Sierra Denali,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “The next generation 2019 Sierra Denali establishes a new benchmark, in capability and refinement. It exemplifies precision in every detail.”
The new Sierra Denali offers features including the GMC exclusive, industry-first MulitPro tailgate, that has six unique functions and positions. It also offers a carbon fiber pickup box, designed to resist scratches and dents.
The trucks will also have a multi-color heads-up display, a rear camera mirror, and several new safety features.
“The heritage of the GMC brand is rooted in full-size trucks, of which the Sierra is our cornerstone, with our SLT and Denali models contributing 87 percent of our total crew cab sales,” Aldred says. “The next generation Sierra caters to these unique customers who demand a premium, innovative trucks that supports their professional and personal passions.”
The Sierra line will feature 6.2L and 5.2L V-8 engines, as well as an all-new 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel engine.
The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali and SLT go on sale this fall, pricing information will be released closer to the start of production.
