The Detroit Free Press reported that the first Sierra models hitting dealerships are two of the most premium models: the 2019 Sierra Denali and Sierra SLT. A GMC spokesperson added the Sierra AT4 will launch next.
“Over 75 percent of the crew cabs we sell are Denali and SLT models, so we thought we’d roll that out first,” Kelly Wysocki, GMC spokeswoman, said.
GMC sold its very first 2019 Sierra Denali on August 9 at a Kansas-based dealership and more dealers report stock of the truck trickling in. As for the 2019 Silverado, it’s unclear where the first unit was sold. But, the truck starting shipping out to dealers at July 30, according to Chevrolet.
Like the GMC strategy, the first 2019 Silverados shipping out are the most-popular models: crew cab trucks fitted with a V8 engine.
