The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was revealed at the Detroit auto show earlier this year, which means the GMC version isn’t far behind. GMC has teased the upcoming pickup’s headlights and profile view, and now it’s giving us a better look at the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500’s taillights ahead of the next-gen truck’s Facebook Live reveal tomorrow.
The new teaser gives us a better idea of what the new Sierra’s taillights will look like. Yesterday’s profile teaser showed us the view from the side, revealing that the taillights are unique to the Sierra as they lack the notch in the middle that the Silverado’s lamps have. The LED accents kind of mirror the C-shaped LED daytime running lights that we saw on Monday. Those LED accents up front frame what could be full LED headlights, and flank a large grille with a proportionally large GMC badge in the middle. The front end appears to be big and boxy like its Chevy-brand sibling, but the teasers keep most other details hidde
Though the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado have been criticized for being too similar in the past, GM promises that this next generation will usher in more differentiation between the two trucks. Still, expect the Sierra to share its redesigned mixed-material underpinnings with the Silverado and offer many of the same powertrain options. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers a choice between a 5.3- and 6.2-liter V-8, both with cylinder deactivation tech that’s capable of shutting off all but one cylinder. The Silverado will likely receive a 3.6-liter V-6 as the base engine at some point and could even eventually offer a four-cylinder hybrid option.
