General Motors’ next generation of full-size pickup trucks are well underway as we continue to catch the prototypes testing in various parts of the country. This time, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has been spotted in Colorado.
Putzing about the Colorado Rockies, the 2019 Sierra still sports quite a bit of camouflage, which makes it difficult to make out any true details. Though, the LED lighting up front looks identical to previous Sierra prototypes that have been captured in the wild.
Interestingly, this Sierra prototype features round, dual exhaust pipes. Previous shots have shown the 2019 Sierra and Silverado with slim, rectangular units. There may be a different powertrain sitting beneath the hood of this prototype, but nothing is certain.
We’d expect the V8 engine to live on for the next-generation of Sierra, but what GMC has planned for the V6 and beyond is unclear. As competitors introduce diesel and hybrids for their 1500 variants, we may see GM do the same with the Sierra and Silverado.
