2019 GMC Sierra Will Reportedly Skip The Detroit Auto Show

Chevrolet recently announced plans to introduce the 2019 Silverado at the North American International Auto Show but a new report is suggesting it won’t be joined by the all-new GMC Sierra.

Nothing is official but GM Authority is reporting the truck won’t be making an appearance in Detroit and this appears to be backed up by the NAIAS press conference schedule which shows the only GM-related event in is an off-site presentation by Chevrolet on January 13th.

The site goes on to say model won’t be making an appearance at the Chicago Auto Show either so it’s possible the company could choose to introduce the truck at a special event. This isn’t totally unheard of as we first got a glimpse of the 2019 Silverado during a centennial celebration at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Little is known about the 2019 Sierra but the model will essentially be a badge-engineered version of the Silverado with unique styling. The Sierra is expected to have a bolder design with a more prominent grille and distinctive headlights that mimic those on the Terrain.

GM hasn’t released performance specifications but the company has already confirmed the trucks use high-tensile-strength steel and higher grade alloy materials. Rumors have also suggested high-end variants, like the Sierra Denali, could be offered with lightweight beds that use carbon fiber-reinforced thermo plastic.

    The Chevy is quite a looker and I’m sure the GMC Freaks at the show will be quite able to imagine what the new GMC will look like. Just seeing the Silverado will have them salivating. And there are hardcore GMC fanatics, I know 2 of them – own GMCs only, would never consider a Chevy. Mistifys me…..

    It’ll be interesting to see what gets collected in the scoop(?) just below the headlights.
