Last December, GM Authority reported the 2019 GMC Sierra would not make an appearance at the 2018 North American International Auto Show. Ditto for the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. After the solid intel, we know the 2019 Sierra reveal will take place on March 1.
According to a formal invitation from GMC, the 2019 Sierra will bow at a standalone event separate from the auto show circuit. GMC will also show the 2019 Sierra Denali at the event alongside more pedestrian trims.
This was the time in years General Motors revealed its two full-size pickups separate from each other. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado first showed up at a Chevy truck centennial celebration last December ahead of its full reveal at the 2018 NAIAS. The 2019 Silverado handed us a few clues of what to expect from the 2019 Sierra, but details are still scarce.
We’ll more than likely see an identical powertrain lineup shared between the 2019 Silverado at the 2019 Sierra reveal. So far, we know six different powertrains will round out the portfolio, but Chevrolet only mentioned three at the Silverado’s reveal: a 5.3-liter V8, 6.2-liter V8 and the new 3.0-liter Duramax inline-six diesel engine. The two V8 engines will also boast Dynamic Fuel Management to increase efficiency.
The 2019 Sierra will wear a very different design from the Silverado. Spy shots have shown a blockier and more upright front end, which contrasts the 2019 Silverado’s streamlined, sharper and rounder look overall. Inside, if the 2019 Silverado is any clue, the Sierra will likely boast a familiar layout to the outgoing 2018 model.
Stay tuned for more information as we approach the 2019 Sierra’s reveal. Also look for a refreshed Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon this year, too.
