Only a few short days after capturing our first look at the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado without cladding for the first time, our unflagging spy photographer has done it again. This time however, the Silverado's next gen twin, a 2019 GMC Sierra got the once over. Just like the Silverado, the T1XX Sierra has shed all of it's body-disguising cladding for a more visually revealing "camo-only" set of clothes.

We got our best look by far at the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500, thanks to this new prototype caught testing in a revealing, body-hugging graphic wrap.

The 2019 Silverado dropped to this level of camo a couple weeks back, and now the next Sierra pickup has joined in, running on public streets with very little camouflage.  With the heavy vinyl covering gone, and only thin mesh covering the headlights, very little is now left to the imagination on the next-gen Sierra.  It looks as though greater styling differences may exist between the GMC and Chevrolet light-duty truck variants this time around.

 

New Front Fascia Design Language
While there are are carry-over design elements on the new Sierra’s face, the bottom of the grille gets a new shape with two lower “teeth” at the outer bottom corners, and a raised section spanning the bottom edge.  The headlights look to be complex units, with exposed body work between the middle portion of the headlights and the grille—similar to what we see on the latest GMC Terrain.  The headlights’ LED signature makes a C-shaped (and reverse-C-shaped) arc defining the outer edges of the headlight cluster.  Vertical fog lights are prominently beneath the headlights, housed in pentagonal-shaped insets at the outer edges.  The bumper gets a two-tiered effect, as it accommodates the fog-light housings. 

 

More Chiseled Surface Development In New Design
While the new wheel arches look softer, and less defined than on the current Sierra, the 2019 truck gets a sharply chiseled character line that creates a beveled edge along the truck bed and window sills, and then slopes downward as it approaches the door-mounted wing-mirrors. 

 

Tailgate Hunch Suggests Large GMC Badging
The tailgate design looks clean and tidy, but the prototype has a camo-wrapped protrusion suggesting that the GMC Sierra will be graced with a prominent rear badge in the tailgate.  Perhaps the massive RAM on some Ram trucks will get a counter on this GMC pickup.  The tailgate shape suggests a raised portion on the top-center, suggesting a unique shape to the rear gate.

That would be my guess but GM has not announced anything yet.

The wheel wells look weird.  The rest looks ok what I can see.

Bed 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!

They are camouflaged wheel wells.  They put a filler in the well to round it.  That means they still haven’t let go of the square wells.  wheels and tires are round.  When will they drop the square wells?

The cab looks comically small compared to the bed.

 

I guess that's better than Ford's comically large cab size compared to the bed...

That's what I was thinking, too.

Yup, those GM boys toying with everybody's heads on the wheel wells and Oval badging!  LOL This truck looks to be very impressive IMO!  The front end is classic in your FACE GMC and very tied together for MPG's.....the Rear ends look different too and the undercarriage seems higher at lowest point on Rear Diff?  The running boards even look sweet!  Nice little tie in behind the passenger door to step up looks great!  GM is gonna knock this truck out of the park!

 

I want the GMC 6.2L please!  2023

The silverado spy shots have rounder wheel wells  The GMC is rond in the front half and squared in the back? WTF  There is no filler on these spy shots.  The older spy shots did have fillers on the camo but htese newer spy shots looks like the trucks are just vinyl wrapped with the fillers removed.  GMC top Chevy bottom

Looks to me like a 2500+ sized truck.  Just  too big for us mortals who can't climb up as well anymore.  That said, I like it better than the Silverado.  Less Fordie.

Really, this is the best they can do with styling? Just another BOX? Can we please get back to some Rolled fenders? This thing looks more and more like a F O R D. The other thing they need to address is fuel mileage vs tow capacity. Forget the bells and whistles. I am really, really sick of the blisters for wheel wells. What happened to the smooth side body?

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I could have sworn I already posted this, but I can't find it anywhere.  My 2015 GMC Sierra All Terrain SLT 1500 truck's media center seems is glitchy, it's either that or I have a haunted truck.  I'll be driving and my radio display and my odometer display will randomly start selecting items and cycling through the menu, it will randomly change stations, and one time it even selected voice command, all without any input. Anyway,  I've experienced this issue before and I took it to the dealer and while they told me they had never heard or seen the issue before they suggested that they would perform a software / firmware update on my infotainment / intellilink system to see if that would fix the issue and it worked.... for a few months, now it's back.  I was wondering if anyone here has experienced the same thing and if they were able to find a permanent fix for it?  It is absolutely annoying and very distracting.  I have searched this forum and I haven't seen a post from a member that has the same thing that I have experienced.  Any help would be appreciated, I'd like to have a permanent fix for this once and for all.  I've include a video of what's going on.

      Alright so I’ve been wanting to to the 6l80 swap in my 2011 rcsb 4.8/4l60 for a while now. Not for gas mileage or anything like that, simply because I want to. I am capable of doing the swap and have a tuner, just need to know what all is needed. Thanks!

      Hello, I own an 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel Crew Cab Long box pick up, it's throwing a display message, but not giving me any codes, the message is service trailer brake system, it used to show that message and then I had it brought into the shop the second of July and they replaced the trailer break relay in the rear, had to change out some eye connectors at the fuse box. They also replaced the fuse. Worked great again from then to about a three weeks ago and this was including an 11 000km trip towing the trailer, it brought the message up again. The truck had been sitting and driven every once and a while, a bit of idling this winter as well, but no towing. so I replaced the fuse because it looked blown. After replaced it work fine again no more message thought maybe wet weather caused it. Now unfortunately now again yesterday I went to use it again and the message comes up, it was just recently used a few days ago and no message, today we have some dense fog as well as some rain. I think it only happens when it rains heavy or fog.. I am not entirely sure on that though. I replaced the fuse in the fuse box for the (ITBC) The one I changed out before to get it to work, and this time it did not work and nothing changed on the dash message still up.  I can more than easily replace the Relay without any issues, but I don't want to do that if it is just going to create the exact same issue. Any ideas on what might be causing this?
       
      Also on a side note, whenever I start the truck it puts out grey smoke until it has warmed up passed about 79-85 degrees Celcius (174F-187F), which is normally after driving for about 5 mins 10 at most or letting it high idle until that temp, it also does smoke when driving until warmed up. it never puts out black or blue smoke. Its grey, just as it is on a cold day in a gas engine. today we've reached the highest temp lately about 8 degrees Celcius and it still smoked. It never did this in the summer or fall just after it got cold. So I am just wondering if this is normal or if something is causing this to happen when it shouldn't be. Could it be something  as simple as it needing an oil change? Or also does it need a long drive at highway speed to deal with burn cleaning the DPF? I am a new owner to this pickup, and it is my first year with it so I am new to diesel's and don't know what to expect from them.
       
      Any help Is much appreciated!

      Hey Guys!
       
      Have not been able to find a site where you can submit your mods and have them post it without buying their products or going through some ridiculous process.  I have created: https://thegaminggalago.wixsite.com/mycompletemodlist
      to get the ball rolling.  Please share it amongst people on here and in your car clubs, it would be GREATLY appreciated!
       
      Thanks,
      Connor
