Which GMC Truck is Right For You?

By Emily Eppley | August 22nd, 2018

 

GMC is constantly improving its lineup to make each truck more powerful, durable, and capable. The lineup ranges from agile, midsize trucks that offer some of the best fuel efficiency in their segment to full-size turbo-diesel trucks that deliver massive torque. But not everyone needs a heavy-duty truck in their day-to-day life, that’s why GMC offers a variety of pickups to match to your needs.

 

2019 GMC Canyon

Sitting pretty with the segment’s best fuel economy at up to 30 mpg highway is the the 2019 Canyon. It has an available 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine with 186 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque that pairs to two- or four-wheel drive, making it great for an urban cowboy. The Canyon’s smaller size makes it easier to maneuver in tight spaces and helps manage fuel efficiently.

Your cab and bed configuration options include an extended-cab model with a 6-foot-2-inch bed and a crew cab with a 5-foot-2-inch bed or 6-foot-2-inch bed. With the tailgate down, the 6-foot-2-inch bed accommodates items up to 8 feet long.

New features on the 2019 GMC Canyon are mostly in the cabin. They include an updated infotainment system, and expanded wireless charging and heated steering wheel availability.

2019 GMC Sierra 1500

Get a tailgate that does more than just open; get a MultiPro Tailgate with six functions and positions for better loading solutions.

GMC crafted the hood, doors, and tailgate from new, lighter materials, shaving up to 360 pounds off the 2019 Sierra 1500. Plus, stronger alloys in the frame give it more strength and rigidity without adding weight.

This full-size truck has six powertrain options to choose from, including five engines and three transmissions. There is also an improved brake system featuring electro-hydraulic power assist, and larger pads and rotors. These powerful brakes will come in handy when you fill the class-leading 63-cubic-foot 5-foot-8-inch bed in the Sierra 1500 Denali.

2019 GMC Sierra AT4

Upgrade your off-road capability with the new 2019 GMC Sierra AT4. This truck comes with a factory-installed 2-inch suspension lift, standard four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case, locking rear differential, and skid plates. You’ll get the same GMC-exclusive MultiPro Tailgate with a choice between a 5-foot-8-inch box with 63 cubic feet of capacity or a longer 6-foot-6-inch box with 89 cubes.

Enjoy a standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine that delivers 355 horsepower with dynamic fuel management that activates cylinders as needed so you can conserve fuel when you don’t need all eight cylinders. Plus, this truck comes with standard 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, or you can upgrade to mud-terrain-rated Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires or 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires.

2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD

When you need a full-size truck to handle big jobs, the 2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD is ready for action. The standard 6.0-liter V-8 engine delivers 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. But if you’re looking for outstanding power, you can upgrade to the Duramax 6.6-liter V-8 turbo-diesel engine for 445 horses and 910 pound-feet of torque.

With the diesel engine, the Sierra 2500HD comes with a hood scoop to draw in cool air and enhance performance. It also looks great in both available configurations, the double cab and crew cab. Customize your truck with the choice between 6-foot-6-inch or 8-foot boxes.

2019 GMC Sierra 3500HD

Go big and go home with the largest of the lineup – the 2019 GMC Sierra 3500HD. Start with the standard 6.0-liter V-8 engine with 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque or upgrade to the Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel for 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque.

Match the power under the hood with single- and dual-rear-wheel configurations and drive with confidence with high-strength steel making up nearly two-thirds of the cab structure. The standard automatic-locking rear differential adds to your confidence to give you better traction in poor road conditions. And bring along anything and anyone in the with the double- and crew-cab configurations with 6-foot-6-inch or 8-foot boxes.

2019 GMC Sierra Denali for 1500, 2500HD, or 3500HD

With the Denali version of the Sierra 1500, 2500HD, or 3500HD, you’ll get more interior amenities that create a comfortable and convenient cabin, like the heated leather seats and wireless charging for your phone or tablet. It’s easy to use this plush interior as a mobile office thanks to the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and center console that’s large enough for hanging folders.

Look good with the Denali-exclusive chrome grille, body-color front and rear bumpers, and signature badging that together create a bold look. The assertive front end hints at the powerful engine choices for each truck and lets others on the road know you’re more than just a pretty face.
