2019 GMC Sierra Elevation has a bit of everything


Sales kick off later this year

GMC's latest patch for its Sierra lineup involves the bumped-up Elevation model, one that brings more of everything to the table.

For starters, customers can have the Sierra Elevation with either the new 2.7-liter turbo engine married to an eight-speed automatic (310 hp, 348 lb-ft) of the 5.3-liter V8 connected to the same auto transmission but churning out 355 hp and 383 lb-ft. 

Later on, customers will be able to opt for a 3-liter inline-six diesel unit combined with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Engines out of the way, here's what GMC Sierra Elevation brings in terms of new gear. For starters, the exterior gets black bits and bobs as well as monochromatic door handles, bumpers and grille surround. 20-inch aluminum wheels come as standard, together with, says GMC, high-intensity LED headlights, fog lamps and taillights.


Since the Sierra Elevation uses the double cab Sierra as starting point, you can choose between a two-wheel-drive or a four-wheel-drive setup.

But if you really enjoy going off the beaten path, then you can pick the X31 Off Road pack available for the 2019 Sierra Elevation. This one features Rancho shocks, tweaked suspension settings, a locking rear diff, hill descent control, skid plates and a heavy-duty air filter plus a two-speed transfer case.

According to GMC’s press blurb, the 2019 Sierra Elevation goes on sale in the fall of 2018.
