2019 GMC Sierra Caught On Film Wearing Next To Nothing

They are doing embossed / raised lettering in the tailgate. Similar to the old retro pickups.

“GMC” and “CHEVROLET” ...

I truly hope that you're terribly wrong.

All the efforts to design a good looking truck would be down the drain.

I liked the elegance of the later designs.

Have another look at the photos. This raised area is the embossed GMC. We are probably seeing the GMC because people may think it’s the ford oval. If the Chevy tailgate was spotted you would see the larger Chevrolet raised logo.

I can say with very good certainty that they will have this feature unfortunately.

All I can hope is that maybe the previous gen tailgate will fit and work with the lines for people who don’t like the raised lettering.

Ugh.... When is the next redesign? May need to update my 16 to an 18 so I can hold out until the next redesign. Just because others do it doesn't make it right.

Nice.  I just noticed like two or three posts up where you said it was the gate.  Me likey the tailgate mucho!  Amazing to see how much that camo still hides, even though they have been spotted with less and less.

It's the new fad...

 

 

 

 

 

Funny you say new fad, yet GM used to banner "CHEVROLET" across the tailgates on GMT-400 trucks, and some lower trim GMT-800 trucks.  What's old is new again rather?  I love though that they just plain stamp it right into the sheetmetal instead of those old aluminum ones or even giant decals they did back then.

Good point. This was my first ride. Big giant aluminum banner across the back with GMC on it. GMC was also stamped into the tailgate under it. You can even see my mom's old OBS (I guess it would have been a NBS at the time haha) under the carport with the big "Chevrolet" across the back.

I think with GM doing this on the 2019's, they almost have grounds to do it because of their history in doing it.  I think even on old Chevy and GMC trucks in the 1950s and 1960s they had the logos embossed right in the tailgates.

No round wheel wells on the old trucks either. They look good to me.

Not a fan of it. I have owned the last 4 gen gm trucks. But I have seen this one naked and it is a copy of the Ford. they are pushing lines and size to "look impressive" Cars and truck are too aggressive looking vs. really having power and Clean easy lines. AKA new corvette. Just my two cents. I will see what the end of the gen offers...............................

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!

YES

      Hi everyone, so recently I installed a sub/amp setup in my 2018 Sierra SLT Crew Cab.  My truck has the 6 speaker BOSE without sub (no console/no sub). 
       
      We tapped into the rear speaker wire for a signal to an Audiocontrol LC2i.  I am noticing that certain frequencies are causing the bass to drop out.  It seems like when there is a heavy bass line or kick, while also a singing voice/higher frequency sound, they are competing and ultimately the bass will drop out.  Most instrumental music sounds great in the truck, the bass loss is only occurring when there other certain frequencies playing simultaneously.  The bass will drop out/go really low, then the next hit will be normal (loud) when the frequencies are no longer competing.  
       
      I am wondering if this is normal with the LC2i or if something else is causing this issue.  Sorry if this explanation sucks...in a nutshell,  any bass enthusiast will be able to notice this after hearing a few songs.  The bass is not consistent and it is super annoying when it drops in and out.  (For Ex.  the same kick drum will hit at different levels throughout the same song depending on which other sounds are occurring at the same time)
       
      Thanks for any replies in advance, I appreciate it.

      This is might not be the most interesting of updates but we had to let everyone know we finally have our 2019 Silverado order number. This at least proves that the system is working and accepting new truck orders. 
       
      And our number is............Order # WDPP57
       
      Check out how we ordered our 2019 Silverado here. If you have access to GM's order tracking system, can you keep us in the loop?
       
      We hope to take delivery of our 2019 Silverado LTZ in late July or early August.
