2016 GMC Sierra Update Revealed (Photos + Video)
The refreshed 2016 GMC Sierra is unveiled! The most popular GMC truck is coming with a new restyled appearance in the fourth quarter of the year. Thanks to the automaker, today we have the first photos and a video of the 2016 Sierra, so we can see all the changes they have made.
The full-size truck kept its basic design. However, the cosmetic changes that make the 2016 Sierra attractive aren’t ineffectual at all.
2016 GMC Sierra Changes
The exterior of the 2016 GMC Sierra has some new elements. It got a sexy pair of LED C-shaped daytime running lights, but the updated pickup also utilizes LED technology for its headlights, fog lights and taillights.
We should be clear, this is just a mid-cycle update, but since General Motors revised the front fascia, this mild shift in design can help the pickup to keep its good sales figures. In comparison with its twin, the 2016 Chevy Silverado, the new Sierra got just a light exterior nip and tuck treatment.
The 2016 Sierra kept its overall style, its bold and smart personality, but it got a completely new front fascia. To be precise, the automaker equipped the 2016 GMC Sierra with new bumpers and new grille design depending on a particular trim. But, every trim got the update.
This year is really important for all the truck manufacturers. GM has to keep the 2016 Sierra high near the top of the most popular full-size trucks list until the redesigned next generation hits the showrooms. That’s why the 2016 model year must keep the good job its predecessor did.
The automaker said that they’re going to reveal more details about the 2016 GMC Sierra prior to the release date. So far, we know that the changes they have made are pretty, but we’re interested in finding out whether the updated Sierra will bring something new beneath the skin. It’s almost certain that the 2016 Sierra will have improved interior, but the engine and drivetrain department improvements might be in order as well.
Although the official General Motors’ statement said nothing about the new technology, they released a photo that reveals that the 2016 Sierra will have Apple CarPlay with its IntelliLink infotainment system. We hope that this is just a beginning of the new technology improvements.
2016 GMC Sierra Release Date
As we already said, the 2016 GMC Sierra will be released in the fourth quarter of 2015. They will reveal the exact release date, more details about the mid-cycle refresh and pricing later this year.
