General Motors is currently fielding the oldest pickups in the industry right now with the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which date back a handful of model years. However, things will be heating up soon as GM continues to place final engineering touches on the next-generation of full-size pickups.
Specifically, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has been spied testing at GM’s Milford Proving Ground still draped in plenty of heavy camouflage to obscure the design hiding underneath. We wish we had more information to report on, but alas, this project has been held tightly to GM’s chest.
We do know, however, both the next GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado will go on an aluminum-intensive diet to slim down their curb weights and chase greater efficiency. We can likely expect the latest and greatest from the trucks’ V8 and V6 engines, too. Maybe even a hybrid, following Ford’s announcement of a dedicated F-150 Hybrid.
For now, we’re left in the shadows, with only these spy shots to shed some light.
