All-New GMC Sierra Coming Soon, Will Have “More Differentiation Than Ever Before”

Chevrolet recently unveiled the 2019 Silverado at the North American International Auto Show but its corporate counterpart was nowhere in sight.

That’s about to change as General Motors has announced the all-new GMC Sierra will be “revealed soon.” The company declined to give a time frame but said the model will have “more differentiation than ever before to appeal to premium truck buyers.”

While the Chicago Auto Show sounds like an ideal place to unveil the truck, previous reports have suggested the Sierra won’t debut at the relatively low-profile show. This seems to suggest the company could unveil the model at a special event dedicated to the pickup.

Regardless of when and where the Sierra debuts, it will have a lot in common with the Silverado. As a result, we can expect the truck to be about 1.6 inches (41 mm) longer than its predecessor and ride on a wheelbase that has grown by up to 3.9 inches (100 mm). Despite the increased dimensions, the Sierra should be several hundred pounds lighter thanks to the use of high-strength steel and aluminum.

Engine options should carryover from the Silverado and include upgraded 5.3- and 6.2-liter V8 engines with a Dynamic Fuel Management system which can deactivate multiple cylinders to maximize fuel efficiency. We can also expect a 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel inline six-cylinder engine which will be paired to a new ten-speed automatic transmission.

    ie. Where in the Silverado the grille only takes up 98% of the truck’s face, the GMC’s front is now ALL GRILLE! Differentiation!!

    Cylinder deactivation for 7 out of 8 (I read this somewhere)…
    Just like my chainsaw? Well, that’s something…

    I like it better than the RAM, Frontier, and even its twin, the Silverado. I hope it also improves on that one’s abysmal interior.
