GM has been tightening up since Barra arrived and is turning into what Toyota was 5-10 years ago. There is no more passion from GM. They are only concerned with making the most profit per vehicle by stripping features and delivering vehicles for car buyers that see them as just a car or truck to get from point a to point b. They are no longer going after the enthusiasts. If I was to buy a new truck today GM would be at the bottom of the list. Ford and Ram have got the right formula going with their trucks. Even GM cars and crossovers are blah. The only thing GM makes right now I would have interest in buying today is the Camaro ZL1.
I just did a maps update on my 2014 to the 2019 map and now when entering some parking lots I get an audio message of (caution restricted road access) but I do not have the nav on? Is there something in setting to turn this off?
There was a couple youtube videos of the media event for the Sierra. Thsi one is an At4 6.2 with the GM performance exhaust It sounds about as loud as a Borla or Corsa touring exhaust. My Corsa Sport on my 2014 6.2 is louder than this truck
Payton34 replied to Payton34's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI am surprised I also have not seen a 2019 Chevy or GMC on the road yet. The GMC and Chevy dealers I pass everyday has had the same 2019s lined up in front and they keep getting more but I swear the same ones are all still lined up in the same order. I don't think they have sold any yet. The GMC dealer has had the same 4 Sierras over a month now also.
Payton34 replied to Payton34's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI have driven the ram earlier this year and was blown away by everything about it and the interior is amazing every detail has been well thought out. I don’t like the dial shifter or the 12 in screen I would get the 8 in screen with std climate controls below. I would never even checked out ram until my friend bought a 2017 rebel and i was impressed with that body style and he was a diehatd chevy guy His dad then also got a ram after owning Silverados for the last 25 years. I wanted to get a gmc at4 and love the exterior but interior jjst feels like a downgrade compared to my 2014. Everything inside feels plastic rubbery feel. Leather is junk and dash design is a sea of black plastic. Just look at door panels compared to ford or ram. The gm is all cheap plastic. Also gm still restricts the 6.2 and 10 spd to highest trims. Why. Ford has 10 spd in almost every trim and engine. It is clear gm is relying on Diehards to buy their trucks and overlook all the cost cutting and decontenting done. When I drove the 2019 sierra I love the engine 10 spd ride but interior was a huge let down for $65k. The new trucks aren’t even class leaders in any feature or category. I still don’t know if i can buy a chrysler product just don’t trust them. I really hope Gm wakes up and treats the Sierra and Silverado with their besy efforts in designing every part of the trucks. These are there best selling vehicles and they need to be the best product they put out. I hope gm fixes these trucks when im buying in 2 years otherwise will go ram or ford. I have always been gm guy but they have been a disappointment resently

The 2019 mpg ratings are lower or the same as the 2014-18 trucks depending on engine gear ratio. This has been one of the main criticisms other than interior from the media. GM says even though they are lighter trucks the size is larger and has to push more air out of the way. I think GM really screwed up big especially toting the weight reduction and all the tech they put into the new engine cylinder deactivation but they have no improvements to show for it. HP/TQ is same and MPG same or less. GM trucks were always lower ride height than the competition and and now the 2019 GM trucks are now the same ride height as Ford, Ram, Nissan and Toyota but have less MPG than Ram and Ford.
Payton34 replied to Sierra Dan's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraGM knows they had no chance against the Ram with every auto media review attacking the horrendous interior and MPG. They have the worst MPG compared to Ford and Ram. GM always used to brag on their MPG being best in class. I have always been a GM truck owner but this new truck is a huge disappointment. They really need a midcycle refresh with main priority to a completely new interior and also bring back the features they removed. Also need to tweak the engines for better mpg. The Chevy needs a better front bumper to integrated the air skirts better like the GMC. The rest of the truck is perfect I think exterior design wise.
