General Motors recently notified dealers that the optional Body-Color Wheel Arch Moldings offered for GMC Sierra pickups trucks were no longer available to order, GM Authority has learned.
The GMC Sierra Body-Color Wheel Arch Moldings are an LPO-level item, which means they are installed by the dealer. The option is tagged with RPO code SF6, and was previously available on all Sierra trim levels, with the exception of the base model. Pricing was set at $685.
Previously, the GMC Sierra Body-Color Wheel Arch Moldings were available in the following colors:
- Quicksilver Metallic
- Summit White
- White Frost Tricoat
- Dark Sky Metallic
- Cayenne Red Tintcoat
- Onyx Black
It’s believed that the GMC Sierra Body-Color Wheel Arch Moldings option is no longer available to order due to a parts supply issue, and will likely be available to order again sometime in the future.
News that the GMC Sierra Body-Color Wheel Arch Moldings are no longer available to order follows an exclusive GM Authority report from October in which we revealed that the optional fender flares for the Chevy Colorado (RPO code SF5) were also unavailable to order, both on new vehicle purchases, and as a standalone accessory.
The latest 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 arrives with a slew of minor updates over the preceding 2020 model year, and follows the debut of an all-new, fourth-generation model for the 2019 model year. Notable updates for the 2021 model year include the addition of four new exterior colors (Ebony Twilight Metallic, Cayenne Red Tintcoat, Hunter Metallic, and Brownstone Metallic), a new 22-inch Multi-spoke Polished wheels option (RPO code SES), and the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, models equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gas engine and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine now offer higher tow ratings.
