What’s New for the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500?

The GMC Sierra 1500 is all-new for 2019. The exterior is taller and bolder, the interior is larger and more comfortable, and the engine lineup features six powerful options — including a new 2.7-liter turbo engine and a new 3.0-liter turbo-diesel (available sometime in 2019). The Sierra Denali trim in particular comes loaded with innovative new features. These include an industry-first carbon-fiber cargo box, a 15-inch Head-Up Display and the ProGrade Trailering System.


Exterior

The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 combines imposingly handsome looks with practical features that come in handy for a wide range of jobs. A CornerStep rear bumper, vertical recovery hooks, cargo tie-downs, and a locking tailgate come standard. Higher trims add the six-position MultiPro Tailgate; cargo box LED lighting; and a light, tough CarbonPro cargo box designed to resist denting, scratching, and corrosion.
