2019 GMC Sierra 1500

After a couple of years of cooldown, Sierra 1500 truck is coming back with a new generation of truck. There will be many changes, but we found one as the major one. It is the addition of the diesel drivetrain to the lineup. If GMC keeps all other options, the new truck will have four engines in its lineup. With it, 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is going to be one of the most versatile trucks on the market. Finally, the hybrid drivetrain is in development. However, we still don’t know if truck for 2019 is going to introduce a new source of power for GMC’s pickup line.

So far, Sierra used three petrol drivetrains. Under the hood of the base truck was 4.3- V-6 unit. This is probably the main option for upcoming 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. Paired with a 6-speed transmission and with 2WD, pickup can deliver 285 hp. More energy is coming from a 5.3- V-8 unit. Depending on the trim, this drivetrain is capable to burst between 355 and 365 horsepower. If we take Sierra Denali as the part of the lineup, then it is the most potent model. From 6.2-l V-8 mill, drivers will get 420 hp.

Between alternative sources of power, the diesel engine is a favorite to find a spot in 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. Experts have two ideas about the drivetrain. One is a 2.8-l Duramax unit. This drivetrain would be shared with GMC Canyon. Nevertheless, its output is not delivering enough power for Sierra. Other possibilities are bigger Duramax drivetrain, such as 6.6-l V-8, or Cummins diesel. It seems like this company has a perfect solution with the 5.0-l V-8 mill. It is capable to produce 310 hp and 500 pound-feet of torque.

Last, but not the least option for powertrain is a hybrid. Although it is not likely to happen, we must treat rumors as possibilities. The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 might not be a classic plug-in model in the beginning. The truck could get parts of the eAssist package that was available for previous editions of Chevy Silverado. Nevertheless, in future, we are sure we can expect hybrid variant of GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck.
