GMC states the number one reason customers choose the professional grade is the aura of the exterior styling. Therefore, precise design cues have been added to create an even more fluid package.
The biggest change is the wider front grille, surrounded by new “C” shaped LED lights. Those “C” shapes can be found in the rear taillights as well. The bumper also sees minor revisions in style.
However, it is interesting that both GMC and Chevrolet have negated to provide full photos of the rear ends of both trucks. Though, we are treated to a shot of the 2016 Sierra’s new rear taillight design, where Chevrolet only provided one front-end photo.
As such, we’re unsure sure if the changes are more than skin deep for either the 2016 GMC Sierra or the 2016 Chevy Silverado. Chevrolet did announce an expanded use of GM’s eight-speed automatic transmission in the 2016 Silverado, while GMC has not provided any mechanical details thus far.
The 2016 Sierra will be available in the fourth-quarter of this year, with more details to come as we approach the truck’s launch.
