GMC shows off updated 2016 Sierra


Recommended Posts

I usually like GMC designs but Honda called and wants their Pilot back:












Not sure what your eyes are seeing but the resemblance is 0 to none imo. Other then the grill taking the same basic shape in the lower section but not the same in overall size or appearance I see nothing that looks alike.

Funny I like the redesigned Silverados (did not like the 14-15 when compared to the GMC) but don't really care for the redone GMC.


LED tails are kinda neat. But I prefer the nose on my 2015 (phew!). I don't care about Apple CarPlay and from the reviews I've seen, it's not all that impressive anyways.

nice, the LED movement.

I dropped 40 amps swapping 33 bulbs.


Got 20 more on the way, decided to try a different brand in the dash (which is already LED - still experimenting).


if you tow things you would notice the old school alternator gauge snap and drain once trailer lights are on. I notice nothing anymore..even on a 20 year old truck.


oem 100 amp alternator...and that is the little one.


they are sure showing confidence with those low profile treads.. not sure I like it.

I thought it sounded pretty nice. Hopefully GM will improve the location of the DEF tank though, that is a big sour spot for most of us Diesel enthusiests. Looks like they were up in Summit County, Colorado and possibly up on top of Loveland Pass.

Waiting for the rest of the story! New colors coming...no more white diamond replaced by white frost-On Buick now. Would like to see the red replaced by crystal red tintcoat. How about keyless ignition? Personally I like the GMC changes and the new Silvy looks better too. Get rid of the ghastly brown in the High Country please. Popcorn

I know it's all a matter of personal preference, but I think the grille on the 2016 Denali is hideous - much prefer the SLT grille to either of the other two. That said, I think the new Chevy front ends look way better than the new GMC's.

So, are they going to add the push button start to the 2016 like I have on my Tahoe? I want the same driving safety features added as well, like on the Tahoe.

I just saw a '14 Silverado for the first time last week, in a Wal-Mart parking lot of all places. Looks better in person than the pics I've been seeing lead on.


That said, these '16's look pretty good too, although the bumper looks like plastic coated with chrome - the whole thing looks delicate to me.



Looks are only one small part of the package. As they say, "Chrome don't getcha home"! Hopefully they put as much effort into making these things RELIABLE, especially considering how ridiculous the pricing has got the past few years ... :noway: Sticker shock central ...

Looks like there will be power running boards on Denali. You can see in the video. That is one nice feature, which was missing before.


LED headlights & power running boards. I wasn't expecting those two before 2017. It is nice that they are putting those this much early.


Great truck!!!

      Reciently the Check Engine Lamp (MIL) came on at start and remainded on with no noticable engine running rough.  The error codes were read which indicated 400+ Cold Start error codes on Cylinder No.3.  Their are several GM Service Bulletins (PIP5498M, PIP5628E) on this subject V8 on engines from 2000-2022.  The bulletins indicate the "Cold Start" causes misfires due to coolant entering the at the liner to deck face casting or the casting line in the intake port of the cylinder head, in my case No. 3.  The GM Service bulletins indicate "engine replacement" is needed to fix this problem.  I have been very happy about this vehicle however, at 67K miles, this type of issue should NOT be occuring.  Apparently GM has know about this problem since 2000-2020 model years described on the attached Service Bulletins.
      After Two days of MIL being ON, the lamp is now OFF.  My question is how can the problem described repair itself and could the diagonistic codes be attributed to another problem?  I was under the impression that once the diagonistic code is initiated, the only method of turning OFF the MIL is by resetting or clearing the codes.

      Hey everyone. I have a 2016 Sierra Denali. A while back I opted to do away with the magnaride struts and installed BIlstein 6112s in the front with Cognito UCAs and BIlstein 5100s in the rear, also added Xineering bypass kit to clear the Magnaride errors. I had an issue recently with the stop mount on the drivers side strut blowing out. I contacted BIlstein about it and the rep told me he thought he had been told that the distance between the LCA and where the strut mounts into the truck frame at the top on a magnaride equipped Denali is shorter than a normal Sierra and that it was possible that the strut was too compressed, causing it to push through the top mount. Has anyone ever heard this or experienced this issue? I can’t find anything mentioned about it anywhere. I’m taking the truck in next week to get it fixed but if it’s going to just happen again I am wondering if I need to get different struts all together.

      Like new, Pulsar LT for sale, bought direct from manufacturer. Box is included as well, just can't upload a pic of it for some reason.
      Had this installed on my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, took this off when I traded it in. Works great, ~10 months of ownership.
      Looking for $400, shipping included, within USA. Venmo/Paypal/Zelle preferred.
