The 2019 GMC Sierra pickup has been revised substantially since the series was materialized from a mere concept. From its solid frame and steady suspension all its available drivelines together make the 2019 Sierra appear like a completely new model.

Hearing a lot about the model we reached the Fayetteville GMC dealer shade to book a test drive with the 2019 GMC Sierra and here we share with you our driveway experience.

New 2019 GMC Sierra

The Powertrain

The 2019 GMC Sierra comes in six different trim levels. Namely, at the top we see the AT4 and Denali trims, both of which we test-drove. The other base trims offer a 4.3-liter V6 and 5.3-liter V8 engine options that are added with an Active Fuel Management system that turns the V8 into a V4 whenever possible to cut down the usage of fuel. On the other hand, the mid-level trims are powered by a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Interior Comfort

To make the interior cabin a place that can endure the everyday commute, the 2019 GMC Sierra cabin is wrapped in high-quality leather that focus more on durability without compromising on looking attractive. Rest, the seats are heated and ventilated, to ensure every ride stay comfortable in a whisper-quiet cabin.

Technology Features

The 2019 version of GMC Sierra received a latest tech feature, which is a camera-based rearview mirror and an increased rear legroom for all its crew cab models.

The infotainment system is now having an eight-inch touchscreen monitor. For connectivity, there is 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi capability with an excellent three-inch x seven-inch head-up display system, which has an option to be selected onto the windshield itself.

Fuel Economy

The 2019 GMC Sierra with its 5.3-liter DFM engine can drive 17 mpg in city, scaling it up to 23 mpg on the highways when driven on its rear-wheel drive truck. The four-wheel drive truck on the other hand brings the capacity down to a 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg in the highway when driven with the 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter engines.

Driving Impressions

On the road, the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra proved itself to be capable enough to provide an enjoyable ride. The one who drives the 2019 GMC Sierra would feel plenty of power under the foot whenever there is necessity but overall, the driving impression is bent more towards sobriety rather than being rugged.

Being this big a truck, the 2019 GMC Sierra brings with it a highly responsive brake, excellent visibility, while the active suspension works towards keeping the rides smooth throughout the journey. The 2019 GMC Sierra drives mostly like a rear-wheel drive model till you face a wheel slip, and then it continues to run on the front wheels.

The Bottom Line

To sum up, when we took our test drive with the 2019 GMC Sierra at the dealership of Fayetteville GMC, we didn’t expect this much of driving fun that we experienced. Overall, the performance was more than satisfactory from every angle that one can measure.
