GMC Introduces the Next Generation 2019 Sierra
The 2019 Sierra debuts a GMC exclusive, industry-first MultiPro Tailgate that is the segment’s most innovative tailgate ever. Standard on SLT and Denali, the MultiPro Tailgate features 6 unique functions and positions, offering enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation mode and easier access to items in the box.
The MultiPro Tailgate also incorporates a step entry and egress mode that, when paired with the assist handle, offers both step and seated functionality, with a maximum weight capacity of 170 kg. Ease of use is enhanced with 2 buttons on the tailgate handle that allow convenient inner gate release.
A GMC exclusive and industry-first carbon-fiber box will be available later in the model year on the Denali. On the CarbonPro, the standard steel inner panels and floor are replaced with a lightweight carbon-fiber composite that offersbest-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance, making it the most durable pickup box in the segment.
The new CarbonPro box is 28 kg lighter than the steel version. It is part of GMC’s strategic use of materials in engineering the Sierra which incorporates aluminum for the doors, hood and tailgate, while relying on steel for the fenders, roof and standard cargo box to shave up to 163 kg compared the current model.
New versions of the proven 6.2 l and 5.3 l V8 engines will be joined by an all-new 3.0 l I6 turbo-diesel engine, expanding the powertrain lineup for the 2019 Sierra.
The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali and SLT go on sale this fall. Additional details will be released closer to the start of production.
