The half-ton pickup market is a competitive segment, especially here in America. Pickup trucks offer a variety of different features, capabilities, and packages to appeal to a broad and diverse audience. GMC is staying one step ahead of competitors with expanded options for the GMC Sierra 1500. The model, due for a 2019 model year release, will offer drivers the options of a carbon fiber truck bed and an off-road trim level.
One of the most anticipated new features to debut on the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is the MultiPro tailgate. This feature keeps cargo more secure by preventing it from shifting, as well as making loading, unloading, accessing it easier. This tailgate will be standard on the SLT and Denali trim levels, which are the models selected by 87% of GMC Sierra 1500 customers.
More tie-downs and 110-volt outlet will also be included with the Sierra 1500’s short box, and in addition to the standard high-strength steel boxes, drivers will be able to select truck beds built from alloy, which has been engineered to be 50% stronger than the Sierra 1500’s current alloy box. Later in the model year, the GMC Sierra 1500 will also offer a CarbonPro box with some panels made from carbon-fiber composite.

Now that summer is here, it’s the perfect time to hit the road with your family and enjoy the great outdoors. There’s no better camping vehicle than the GMC Sierra 1500, which has a range of compatible camping accessories that will make your trip more convenient and fun.
One of the most exciting GMC Sierra camping accessories is the truck tent. Truck tents let you set up a tent over your truck bed, so you can sleep off the hard, rocky ground and in the comfort of you Sierra while still being protected from the elements. Throw an air mattress in and you’ll be amazed at the comfort and convenience your Sierra offers. Plus, truck tents are easier to set up than normal tents.
Another great feature the Sierra offers is a trailer hitch. If you’re going to be near a lake, use the Sierra trailer hitch to hook up your boat and tow it with ease, or attach a camper for you and the family to sleep and eat in on the road while you travel across the country. The Sierra is the perfect vehicle for towing heavy loads thanks to its incredibly powerful engine and smart design.
