We cannot wait for the 2016 GMC Sierra to grace our lot!
Speculation has run wild for the past year as to how the new take on the GMC Sierra would look. Just on the heels of its best June sales in nine years for the pickup—and its 12th straight month of year-over-year sales increases—GMC put that speculation to bed by revealing the new-look 2016 GMC Sierra.
GMC certainly did a beautiful job with the exterior of the Sierra, updating the face of its best-selling truck to add LED “C-shaped” daytime running lights and headlights; a new grille at each trim level; new bumper, and new fog lamps. In the rear, the Sierra will also receive C-shaped taillights and a new rear bumper.
Apart from these tidbits and some tantalizing images, GMC isn’t letting on about what else will grace the 2016 Sierra. It has been confirmed that the Sierra will be released sometime in the fourth quarter of this year, adding that more information will follow in the months ahead.

According to USA Today, GM has released the 2015 heavy-duty big brothers of the current generation pickup trucks and announced their market debut dates for the beginning of next year. The full-size versions of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are equivalent to approximately 25% of the iconic truck models’ overall sales.
The heavy-duty Silverado and Sierra were unveiled yesterday at the Texas State Fair. The heavy-duty Chevy Silverado sported bolder lines and a bulkier exterior, but its aerodynamic quality has been improved to allow for better highway mileage.
Naturally, we expect both the HD Silverado and GMC Sierra to have enhanced hauling capabilities, more muscle-bound exterior sculpting, and luxury options, while maintaining a noticeable resemblance to their little brother standard duty pickups.

Chevrolet and GMC have recently released the complete, full-blown, configurator for the 2014 Silverado and 2014 Sierra. At the time being, you’re only able to build out the Crew Cab models, since they are the only ones available right now. Expect the Regular Cab and Double Cab flavors to show up as they are released.
There are plenty of options for both of these trucks when you build your own, which makes it that much easier to set your truck apart from the rest and make it unique to you. Here at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC we’ve spent a little bit of time playing around with the tool and have came up with some pretty nice trucks, but my favorite so far has been a 4-Wheel Drive Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71 in Tungsten Metallic with 22” wheels, chrome tow hooks, black tubular side steps, cargo box LED lighting, and o so much more.
What are some of the things you’d put on your 2014 Silverado or Sierra?
GMC sought out to create a more aerodynamic, quieter pickup in its 2014 Sierra, so the automaker entered the wind tunnel. GMC spent more time testing the 2014 Sierra in the wind tunnel than any pickup before it, and the result of extensive testing was just what they were looking for.
“We can’t stop air; we can only guide it through the path of least resistance. It’s like electricity, without the shock,” said Diane Bloch, GM aerodynamic performance engineer, in a press release. “The biggest misconception is that it’s all about single components. But a certain side mirror design doesn’t create a certain amount of drag, its interaction with the rest of the vehicle does.”
To find out which designs guided the air most efficiently, GMC utilized a 750-foot-long tunnel equipped with fan measure 43-feet in diameter. The massive fan was able to generate wind speeds of up 138 mph inside the tunnel.
GMC modified things as significant as the tailgate to aspects as seemingly insignificant as add-on bug deflectors, in order to ensure that the 2014 Sierra is one of the most fuel efficient pickups on the market.
