2019 GMC Sierra in Bozeman, MT
The most competitive segment in the automotive industry is set to get a new a leader when the e2019 GMC Sierra in Bozeman, MT arrives to dealerships like Billion Auto Group. GMC has outdone themselves with the premium pickup truck's new redesign. While the entire trim ladder is being refreshed for the new model year, the most exciting changes and additions to the equipment list are found on the full-size pickup truck's top two trims, the SLT and Denali. The automaker is introducing a pair of GMC-exclusive features as well as adding two segment-first systems that will change the way owners use the truck.
“GMC ignited the premium truck segment 17 years ago with the original launch of the Sierra Denali,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC, said in a press release. “The next generation 2019 Sierra Denali establishes a new benchmark in capability and refinement. It exemplifies precision in every detail.”
A new tailgate for the 21st century
A strong case could be made for the tailgate as being one of the most important, if not iconic, elements to any pickup truck. Since pickup trucks were first developed more than 100 years ago, the basics of the tailgate have largely remained unchanged. If the 2019 GMC Sierra is going to be known for anything, it's going to be its take on the humble tailgate. The all-new MultiPro Tailgate can be configured in six different ways to adapt to the changing needs of a driver.
Among the more innovative features of the MultiPro Tailgate system is its second-tier cargo system which will make it easier and safer to haul long items. Additionally, the tailgate can also be configured to serve as a standing workstation, a welcome advance to those who use the truck for their job.
More new features
Future buyers of the 2019 GMC Sierra will also have the option of equipping the pickup truck with an industry-first carbon fiber cargo bed. This GMC-exclusive innovation will make the box more resistant to damage, rust and corrosion. Additionally, the weight-savings will have a positive effect on fuel-economy.
The GMC Sierra is already one of the most capable trucks for towing in the automotive industry. For the new model year, the 2019 Sierra will come with the ProGrade Trailering system which features a proprietary app. It can be downloaded to Apple- and Android-based smartphones. New towing scores will be announced closer to the launch date.
Adapting new technology
GMC didn't have to go far to find new technology to improve the ownership experience of the 2019 GMC Sierra. The automaker has borrowed the Rear Camera Mirror system from Cadillac which has very interesting advantages over traditional rearview cameras. A color heads-up display is also available.
