Another GMC Sierra 1500 Variant Appears in the Wild
Spy photographers have caught the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation testing on public roadways.
Spotted wearing light camouflage in Milford, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation is yet another variant heading to the truck’s lineup. The new GMC Sierra 1500 has already made its official debut, but the American automaker has only shown off the Denali and SLT trims. Since then, spy photographers have caught the SLE and base models on camera, and now there’s the Elevation model featuring another unique grille up front. Unfortunately it’s covered up, but expect to see chrome slats surrounded by body color accents.
The model will also features black aluminum wheels, color-matched front bumper, rear bumper, and a traditional exhaust setup in the rear.
Although unconfirmed, the GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation should be equipped with the recently announced 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine for the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. That powerplant is good for 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque.
Look for additional GMC Sierra 1500 trim models to make their official debut in the coming months.
