GMC’s all-new 2019 Sierra line-up is now complete and in showrooms across the region but the big news is that we get two models exclusive to the Middle East - the Elevation and Sierra AT4 Reg Cab. The duo join a number of other trims including the benchmark Sierra Denali crew cab.
Completely redesigned, GMC’s Sierra lightweight pickup truck is available in both crew cab and regular cab body style and comprises a slate of models that each make a commanding statement in design, capability and advanced connectivity. The first-ever Sierra AT4 combines smart capability and innovative technologies with uncompromising off-road capability. While the new Sierra Elevation, takes the qualities for which the pickup truck is renowned, and wraps them in a sleek and sophisticated appearance.
Boasting toughness and durability, the all-new Sierra is built upon a prominent foundation of strong bodywork that incorporates chiseled fenders, a tall and powerful hood capped with a bigger and bolder grille than any Sierra prior - guaranteeing a unique formula of authentic on and off-road capability.
Delivering innovation and practicality, the regular cab line-up also carries the GMC exclusive, industry-first MultiPro Tailgate which is the most innovative pickup tailgate ever. With six unique functions and positions, it offers an enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation and easier access to items in the box.
Offering an optimized view, Sierra’s segment-first Rear Camera Mirror boasts a dual-function interior mirror. Expanding vision, this function allows drivers to overcome common obstructions like occupants or cargo. Featuring a higher resolution camera and display, this next generation system also allows the driver’s view to be tilted or zoomed in to, truly maximizing rear vision.
Depending on model, there are either 4.3-litre V6, all-new 2.7-litre turbocharged or next generation 5.3-litre V8 (with Dynamic Fuel Management system) engines all mated to an eight-speed automatic. A new version of the proven 6.2-litre V8 will be available on the Sierra AT4 and is also standard on the Denali line up. Paired with a 10-speed automatic, the 6.2-litre features stop/start technology and new Dynamic Fuel Management that enables the engine to operate on two to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency.
The regular cab Sierra Elevation and AT4 come equipped with a 355 horsepower 5.3-litre V8, featuring GM’s patented Active Fuel Management system and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Daniella D’Souza, Head of Brand - GMC Middle East, said: “The Sierra has been celebrated as a legendary truck across the Middle East for years, and the all-new line-up drives this legacy even further into the future by leveraging innovative technology, smart engineering and enhanced capability. The success of both the GMC brand and the Sierra is in no small part due to our loyal regional customer base which is why we are extremely excited to be able to give back to them with two Middle East exclusive trims - the Sierra Elevation and Sierra AT4.”
