An anonymous source reports new information about the next generation 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali pickup truck from a recent dealership meeting held by General Motors. The source reports that GMC showed a luxurious Denali version of the next generation truck and did not allow pictures or video.
The new truck is reported to ride higher for a more imposing presence than the current version. There was a 6.2L V8 engine under the hood. Dealership representatives in attendance could not open the tailgate or see inside the bed. The source says that GM was not ready to show the new bed features but said the new bed features are “revolutionary”. What could it mean? Will the next generation truck have a tailgate that opens down or to the side? Will it have additional side storage compartments. Will the bed side fold down? We will have to wait to learn more details about this.
Finally, the report suggests that the 2019 Sierra 1500 Denali at the meeting had a larger center infotainment screen that resembled an iPad.
GM has been testing prototypes of the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 on public roads for months.
Here are just two videos of 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra prototype trucks testing in the Rocky Mountains. These camouflaged test trucks have been seen on public highways and roads since at least March of 2017.
