It’s been a week since the 2019 GMC Sierra made its debut, and after some time to digest the finer details, we’re here to ask if GMC’s new pickup truck is hot, or not so much.
For the first time in the 2019 Sierra’s history, the truck marks a major departure from the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. The two trucks often featured nearly identical designs, but General Motors has finally put some space between the two trucks. The GMC is certainly the more masculine of the two with a taller, blockier stance, especially in the front fascia.
A large grille flanked by C-style LED lights gives the Sierra a more aggressive posture over the Silverado, which is rounder, yet remains sharp.
The side profile doesn’t mimic the Silverado much, either, with separate lines and surfacing present on the 2019 GMC Sierra. And at the rear, things differ more. The Chevy features a debossed tailgate spelling out “Chevrolet” and loses its bowtie badge, while the taillights sport a different shape from the GMC. The Sierra, meanwhile, wears a big red “GMC” badge with further cutouts for the MultiPro tailgate. Both trucks feature dual-exhaust outlets, though.
Overall, we like the GMC Sierra’s new looks. The clean, buff presence charts an evolutionary course for the brand’s design language, and we think truck shoppers will appreciate the different looks.
But, it’s your turn to sound off. Vote in our poll and sound off below.
