We’ve now seen many a trim level of the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra, including the Sierra base, Sierra SLE, Sierra AT4, Sierra SLT and Sierra Denali. The first two trims have yet to be officially announced and were caught undergoing testing just recently via spy shots, while the three latter trims were officially unveiled by GMC. And today, we have a 2019 Sierra sighting that we haven’t seen before.
This particular Sierra tester features very sparse amounts of camouflage, namely covering the grille along with the front and rear bumpers. The prototype is towing a boat while sporting black wheels, body-colored door handles, and what appears to be a removal of chromed exterior elements, save for the mirror caps.
All that reminds us of the K2-generation Sierra Elevation Edition, which for the 2018 model year was optional on the Sierra Base (1SA) Double Cab configuration and the Sierra SLE (3SA) Double Cab or Crew Cab configs, while offering the following unique content:
- 20″ x 9″ black-painted aluminum wheels wrapped in P275/55R20 all-season blackwall tires
- Body color accented grille surround
- Front body-color bumper
- Rear body-color bumper with corner steps
- Black recovery hooks (on 2WD model)
Though we can’t see what’s behind the camo on the grille or bumpers, the Sierra tester appears to match up perfectly with each of the content pieces on the Sierra Elevation Edition, enabling us to conclude that what we’re looking at here is – in fact – the upcoming 2019 GMC Sierra with the Elevation Edition package.
