The latest 2021 GMC Sierra HD follows a complete overhaul (redesign and re-engineering) introduced for the 2020 model year, with the 2021 heavy-duty pickup introducing a few minor changes and updates for the second production year of the new fourth-gen model. One of the 2021 updates is the addition of Hunter Metallic to the available paint options palette, and now, we’re getting a look thanks to the GMC Sierra HD online configurator.
The new Hunter Metallic paint option for the 2021 GMC Sierra HD is exclusive to the Denali trim level, and presents in a grey-green tone that’s understated, yet unique, stepping outside the traditional grayscale range of whites, blacks, and silvers to add a splash of color to the mix.
Pricing for the new color is set at $495, per the 2021 GMC Sierra HD online configurator.
Orders for 2021 GMC Sierra HD models in Hunter Metallic opened in December. However, availability is limited, running at about 5 percent, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the matter. Availability for the new hue is expected to expand in January of 2021.
As GM Authority covered in October, the all-new 2021 GMC Yukon also now offers Hunter Metallic paint. Like the 2021 GMC Sierra HD, the 2021 GMC Yukon only offers Hunter Metallic with the Denali trim level, with the new hue carrying an additional charge of $495.
As a reminder, the 2021 GMC Sierra HD rides on a more capable version of the GM T1 platform, the same bones as the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 and several other full-size GM trucks and SUVs. Customers are offered two engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gas unit, which produces 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, and the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax, which produces 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque.
