The illuminated front GMC emblem for the 2021 GMC Sierra is tagged with RPO code RN2, and is offered as an LPO-level option, which means it’s delivered to and installed by the dealer. The 2021 GMC Sierra illuminated front GMC emblem is available on Sierra 1500 AT4 and Denali trim levels, as well as the Sierra HD AT4 and Sierra HD Denali. Pricing is set at $475.
Back in May, GM Authority was the first to report that the GMC Yukon would offer be the first GMC product to offer an illuminated front GMC emblem, falling in line with broader automotive industry styling trends. In February, we got a closer look at the optional styling upgrade on the nose of the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4, adding an extra dash of premium styling to the off-road-ready SUV.
The illuminated front emblem is back-lit, and while the extra lighting is visible during the day, it’s most dramatic at night. With the sun down, the back-lit badge clearly defines the GMC logo, providing a premium appearance.
No doubt, the illuminated front emblem will look great on the grille of the 2021 GMC Sierra as well. Given the option’s availability on the off-roader AT4 trim level and range-topping Denali trim level for the GMC Sierra 1500 and GMC Sierra HD, the option should help the trims stand out from the rest of the lineup when equipped.
As a reminder, the GMC Sierra 1500 underwent a complete overhaul (redesign and re-engineering) for the 2019 model year, while the GMC Sierra HD underwent a complete overhaul for the 2020 model year. As such, the latest 2021 model year ushers in just a few minor updates and changes compared to the preceding 2020 model year on both fronts.
