Redesign 2018

To help differentiate the 2019 GMC Sierra from rivals and from its Chevrolet Silverado sibling, General Motors has created the Swiss army knife of tailgates along with a carbon fiber pickup bed. The dual tailgate, which GMC calls the MultiPro Tailgate, will be standard on the high-end SLT and Denali trims. It offers an inner tailgate as part of the main gate that can fold vertically down for easier loading or turn into a step, among other uses. Both gates, which have six functions and positions, are released by two buttons in the tailgate handle. Later in the model year, the 2019 Sierra Denali will be available with a carbon fiber composite bed that GM calls the "CarbonPro." It replaces the standard steel inner panels and floor with a lightweight carbon fiber composite that is 62 pounds lighter than the steel version. The Sierra SLT and Denali trims will come standard with a 5.3-liter, V-8 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. As with the Silverado, available 6.2-liter V-8 and 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel engines will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
