2019 GMC Sierra Concept Reveal – Changes, Specs, Redesign, Release Date
Recently, the spy photographers spotted the redesign pickup that is still under the test, on the public street, with the little things to hide. Therefore, it is quite easy to see the truck, especially for some parts. Many of them explained that it is the new 2019 GMC Sierra. They saw that the pickup had a more sculpted grille with the new signature LED running lights and smoother body design. We glad that there are some information available to know more about the possible changes inside and outside the pickup. However, it is important to note that this information is from unofficial sources. The company does not make any announcement yet regarding to the truck.
Asides the more sculpted grille and the brand-new LED running lights, the 2019 GMC Sierra have smoother body design than before. Other than that, the spy shots tell us that the company provided it with the new grille that follows the similar shape of the current truck. The difference is the new generation has two nubs for its bottom. For the headlight stacks, it is still the same as the current U-shape running lights. But, the design cues are taken from the 2018 GMC Terrain. In another word, it has a longer top line and the exterior has sickle-shaped side design. The vertical-mounted fog lights are a new addition on the truck. We have to say that it has a more prominent look especially on the tailgate and the grille.
Recently, the company shows their effort to make people easily differentiate the Sierra from the Chevrolet Silverado. Therefore, they are adding the unique front fascias for this truck even though the body has identical look with the little difference in the rear part. Both Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado will get the slight slopes around the roofline that is similar to the current midsize pickups from GM. It is their strategy to help the aerodynamics. The company may also remove the corner steps from the rear bumper.

At this time, people are anticipating the diesel engine options.
