One of the most important improvements made to the 2019 Sierra will be the full-size pickup trucks increased fuel economy scores. Specific fuel-efficiency measurements have not been released by the Environmental Protection Agency yet, but GMC has adapted its ground-breaking engine stop/start technology as well as a new version of Dynamic Fuel Management. This will allow either of the truck's V-8 engines to operate on just one cylinder to achieve maximum efficiency. Comparing last year's fuel economy scores for the Sierra and Tundra, the former already showed a very clear advantage that will only get larger for the new model year. Additionally, the 2019 Sierra can be outfitted with the industry's first carbon-fiber cargo box which will cut down on unnecessary weight while still being able to withstand very rugged use.

Most versions of the 2019 GMC Sierra will be equipped with updated versions of the long-used 5.3- and 6.2-liter V-8. Both engines will at least product 355 or 420 horsepower, respectively. Likewise, the 2019 Toyota Tundra still use its lineup of V-8 engines that have remained unchanged for several model years. GMC owners will have a clear performance advantage over Toyota's 4.6- and 5.7-liter V-8 engine. The 2019 Tundra will top out at 310 and 381 horsepower with its powertrain options. This disparity in performance naturally extends to towing capacity.
