Carbon Fiber Box, Diesel Engines & More — GMC Sierra Revealed

GMC has not issued any pricing on the new Sierra yet, including the option price for the carbon-fiber bed, though Reuss said the new model would be in-line with the current Sierra.
The 2019 Sierra is not only bolder, but larger than its predecessor, since it's larger in pretty much every dimension. Once just a badge-engineered copy of Chevrolet's full-size pickup, General Motors has moved the 2019 GMC Sierra into a league of its own with its class-exclusive features and pushed the model further into premium territory with its top-of-the-range Denali trim.
Debuting almost two months after the all-new Chevrolet Silverado, the 2019 Sierra has a distinctive design that is further differentiated than ever before. The other massive breakthrough for Sierra is a carbon-fiber bed, called CarbonPro, the brand will offer as an optional extra on the Denali later in the model year.
New versions of the 6.2L and 5.3L V-8 engines will be joined by an all-new 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel engine. That oil-burner and the bigger of the eight-bangers will come paired with GM's new 10-speed automatic, but all powertrain packages can be ordered in either rear- or all-wheel-drive. The headlights have a notched look sort of like the new GMC Terrain SUV, and the grille is slowly growing to consume the entire remainder of the front end. The Denali gets LED headlights, tail lights and fog lights.
The SLT and Denali trims also come standard with the ProGrade Trailering System with mobile app.
Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC, credited the brand with launching the premium truck segment 17 years ago with the original Sierra Denali. On an apples-to-apples comparison, in fact, it's close to what Ford has achieved by switching to even lighter aluminum. If you like the current truck interiors, you'll be pleased with the new model.
The Sierra tailgate can be configured six ways. The bed's outer walls are steel, but the liner, called the CarbonPro, covers the interior surfaces.
The carbon fiber load bed. GMC says the carbon fiber will also help scratch and corrosion resistance. The truck features new styling, a new diesel engine and - on the Sierra Denali - a carbon fiber bed. As you can see in the video above, there are plenty of uses for the load-stop that folds out of the smaller gate, including carrying long pieces of cargo like ladders or pipes, or allowing large items to be loaded easier and in a more compact way, while also reducing the weight pressure on the main gate when large items are wheeled into the bed via ramp.
In the meantime, we've already seen the new Chevrolet Silverado.

In addition to start/stop, the new Sierra also boasts an extension of GM's cylinder deactivation that reduces the number of cylinders firing in steady throttle cruising. When you put the Sierra in reverse, the rearview mirror becomes a backup camera and switches back to a mirror when you shift out of reverse. While not everyone is comfortable with the image, those who like the system praise the way it displays a wider field of vision - and the fact that it isn't obstructed by anything in the passenger compartment, whether cargo or the heads of backseat passengers. The new system will also give the driver the ability to tilt or zoom the camera for even better awareness while backing up. "Sierra is the first and only truck to offer the MultiPro Tailgate, providing premium truck customers the ultimate flexibility".
In the box, the next-gen pickup appears to have all of the additional features of the Silverado, including a roll-formed, high-strength steel bed; more tie-downs; and an optional 110-volt power outlet. Just like its sibling, the Sierra packs some unique upgrades that you won't find in any other truck, and best of all, several of those new features are standard across both trims.
"Capability and refinement" sums up the new Sierra nicely.
