"" Will the MultiPro prevent itself from opening into mounted ball hitch?NO. This is the biggest issue we can see with the MultiPro going forward. The inner gate is fully susceptible to damage from a mounted trailer hitch. GMC does mention that a warning sticker will be present to remind owners not to do just this. Owners will have to remember going forward that if they leave a ball hitch mounted, the MultiPro WILL HIT IT. "" How freakin' STOOPID! For all the engineering that went into the tailgate, it seems no one was thinking about what it was actually going to be attached to. I keep my ball hitch mounted all the time as I tow a trailer a few times a week. I can't believe there isn't some type of failsafe for this. While I myself could probably remember to not open the tailgate with the ball installed, I'm sure my wife or kids would not. There will be MANY of these fancy tailgates with ball dents in them. They should just manufacture the dent into them.
If you go to the GMC site for the new Sierra- http://www.gmc.com/trucks/2019-sierra-1500-pickup-truck - on the 360 view area, you can drop the tailgate and see it lines up with the hitch receiver. I sure looks like it would smack right into the hitch if you left it in. Sure hope there is a safety lockout of some type. Otherwise there are going to be a lot of dented fancy tailgates.

Ford did this on the '15+ trucks. FX4 used to be a stand-alone model. Now it's a package available on most trim levels. I imagine the Sierra will be similar. I would expect the All Terrain to carry over as a model (equipped like the Trail Boss) and including the Z71 package.
2Speed replied to silveradonationfan15's topic in 2019 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500The grill reminds me of the last gen Raptor with FORD embossed across it. Lower-end headlights than on the Trail Boss, not the cool LED projector clusters. I don't see any fog lights. What are you referring to?

2Speed replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomMost of the hate here is most likely from people with 4-5 years worth of payments left on their “new” trucks. This thing looks bad ass. Everyone I’ve shown these pictures to who aren’t pickup owners all agree the styling is a home run. As long as the interior/ technology are up to current standards, I’ll be buying one as soon as they are available.
2Speed replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomLook just like the design in many of the current Acura’s. My wife has a ‘16 MDX and it has the best stock headlights I’ve ever seen.

2Speed replied to White LTZ's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsDead battery at 2 years, 8 months. Not too difficult to swap out if you know what you're getting into, but WAYYY more difficult that just replacing a battery should be. Watch the YouTube video where the guy flips the battery on its side when removing and installing. This way you don't have to move the coolant reservoir. Great tip. https://youtu.be/35ih6Ncd_Eg The worst part was the $250 battery, which was the cheapest one AutoZone had. 5 year, 100% replacement warranty though. ALSO, the guys (and gal) at my local AutoZone were great as usual. They offered to swap it out for me if I brought it back during daylight hours. Said it would take 30 - 45 minutes, as they had replaced several already. Doesn't hurt to ask!
2Speed replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomThat's what I was thinking, too.
2Speed replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomBed height looks to have increased. The rear window looks tiny, but it may be because the bed looks so huge. The swept up rear windows makes it look like a large Colorado / Canyon. I like the door mounted mirrors, more truck-like. They still have that stupid bug catcher gap at the top of the grille. The only real question I have is, does it have freakin' rear a/c vents!
