Redesigned 2019 GMC Sierra spotted during test drive
Spy photographers caught the redesigned 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup testing on public streets with very little camouflage, providing the best look yet at the truck. The unit features a more sculpted grille, a smoother body and the brand’s new signature LED running lights.
The headlight design takes this theme forward with a C-shaped strip of LEDs wrapping the exterior of the optical units and serving as both its daytime running lights and visual signature. Slotted underneath, a vertical fog lamp that also appears to use LEDs.
As for the grille, it looks much larger than the Silverado’s and features two sharper lower corners in what appears to be an effort to further differentiate the Sierra from its sibling. Also there appears to be a small inlet right where the hood meets the front.
Both pickups are expected to be unveiled next year, but GM has not confirmed their debuts. The automaker currently builds Crew Cab versions of both Sierra and Silverado pickups in Silao, Guanajuato. However, there’s plans in progress to shift some production work to Canada.
