The market of the pickup trucks has probably been known as one of the best-selling in the USA. Well, as far as we have been informed, it is about to get another powerful member with luxurious features and lots of pound-feet of torque. It will be the new GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty that should probably be expected to hit the showrooms as a 2019 model.
The 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty is going to hit the market as the full-size pickup trucks and numerous upgraded features. It will certainly keep its recognizable robust and powerful look, but also undergo some refreshments. When it comes to chassis and the materials used in its body construction, the new Sierra HD will mostly employ the high-strength steel. In fact, the two-thirds of its body will be made of high-strength steel, including the cargo bed. The new Sierra will also appear a bit aggressive in terms of styling and you can expect an improved towing capacity. In the front fascia of this pickup truck, you will find a new chrome grille, a massive black bumper, headlamps with HID bulbs as well as the LED headlights with daytime running lamps. In the back part of the vehicle, there is a chrome rear bumper and the twin LED taillights. The new Sierra 2500 will be standing on 18-inch black painted aluminum wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.
Inside the 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 Heavy Duty, you can expect only the latest next-generation features and ultimately luxurious cabin. The cabin will also be quieter and reduce the noise and vibrations you have to put up with on the roads. A driver will get a 4.2-inch information display and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel. You will also find an 8.0-inch touch screen with the latest infotainment system. It will provide options such as navigation, climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, a 6-speaker audio system and others. The seats in the new Sierra will be covered in finest leather and offer options such as heating and ventilation. Some of the safety systems that will be included are airbags, lane-departure warning, rearview camera, forward collision warning, monitoring system and stability control system.
There might be more than one option when we talk about the engine that the 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 HD will be hiding under its hood, but one of them is most likely to come.

It will probably be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
