GMC has reported that the Denali family did not perform as expected and has decided to revamp the model to GMC Sierra. This has elicited many questions from car experts who seek to understand what the new model will have to offer that the Denali did not. The answer that GMC recently gave was that the 2019 GMC Sierra will be a package that virtually anyone would love to possess in life because it will offer an impressive performance as well as offer the best aesthetic value and user comfort.
Exterior and Interior
This truck will have a bold and stylish exterior as was the case in the 2016 edition. Among the features that will be redesigned will be the hood, grille, bumper and headlights to give the model a more sophisticated look. The grille in particular will be larger and will get the classic chrome Denali cheese grader look. The sides of the model will not be altered at all except for the addition of revised Tri-Mode running boards. At the rear, the model will have unchanged tailgate, bumper and bed but the taillights will be revised. 22 inch wheels will be used to move this powerful truck and the buyer will choose between chrome and black inserts. Inside the model, the changes made will be minimal. The previous edition has a neat and classic interior and the same will be provided in this edition. The center will be revised and will include an arm rest with an in-built wireless charger. IntelliLink software by GMC will be used in this model and will be updated to include Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The model will also be compatible with Bluetooth and USB ports and the infotainment system will control the Apple and Android OS. User safety will be well handled via the installation of advanced security features and equipment.
Engine and Performance
Under the hood of 2019 GMC Sierra will be one of the 2 engine options that will be availed. The first will be a 5.3 liter V8 model that will be the standard option. This model will generate 355 horsepower and will tolerate 383 pound feet of torque. The other option that will be more powerful will be the 6.2 liter V8 engine that will produce 420 horses and tolerate 460 pound feet of torque. Both of these engines will incorporate the EcoTec3 technology that includes direct injection, variable valve timing and active fuel management. Both will also have the power transmitted to all the wheels via the 8 speed automatic gearbox. Additionally, there will be 2 extra gears that will facilitate a revamped fuel economy. The fuel mileage figures are yet to be released.
