2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Reveals New Styling

2016_Sierra_Denali_grille II

The design gurus at General Motors are giving their GMC pickup trucks a new look, retouching the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 with a few front-end and tailgate upgrades. Like clockwork, now that the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 made its debut earlier this week, it's GMC's turn.

The 2016 GMC Sierra half-tons will get a larger grille and freshened look on all 2016 models (to go on sale by October). The new models revealed in this just-released YouTube video (see below) show that the new Denali, SLT and All Terrain trim levels have bolder grille designs, each offering a unique flavor.

The Denali will continue to lead the way with the most chrome and the flattest grille surface. The SLT will likely continue to be the most popular mid-trim model, and the All Terrain will fit into that mix as the new entry-level trim, with a unique color-coded bumper and grille. All grilles have a deeper trapezoidal cut into the lower bumper, a larger GMC logo and newly harmonized LED projector headlights. Additionally, all rear taillight designs have a C-shaped LED look to match the front daytime running lights.

Although not announced yet, we would expect GMC to follow with powertrain changes similar to Chevy's recent moves, making the eight-speed transmission more widely available for the smaller V-8 (5.3-liter) option. The V-6 and 6.2-liter V-8 engine options remain unchanged.

so they are now like the ford, with single headlamps, can we say they are following in the leaders footsteps?

@chris: It's funny to me that you think the new F150 looks too "sporty and small" [?] Compared to what? Park the Ford next to the GM trucks and you'll see that the F150 is bigger in all dimensions except width. It has a taller cab and a wider gate opening as well. Even compared to the '14 F150, it's larger.

@Mike best powertrains???????????????????????????????? with PUSH-RODS AND LIFTERS!!!!!! HELL NAH!!!!!!!!! cheapest and easiest to build, and if you replacing bent rods cool. Ford 5.0L doesn't even have direction injection and its a way better engine than the 5.3L. Both of GM V-8's make torque high in the power band, not the best for towing especially heavy trailers.

i just hope GM solves the vibration, direct injection valve cleaning, and oil usage issues. Maybe oil consumption is solved, I haven't read much about it on forums lately. Shaking is still bad on '14s and '15s though. I don't see any advantage to all this direct injection mess. Ecoboost has that too. I don't like what I'm reading about it messing up valves.

With the 8 Speed Transmission being added to the 5.3 Liter and the possible 10 Speed to go along with the exterior update, I'll be at the dealership ready to trade-in my 2011 Sierra!!!

Just in time for the remake of the movie "Vacation" with the "Family Truckster". This is a hideous design, looks like it is designed to be driven by LEGO people. BTW I own a 2012 GMC Denali and now realize I won't be trading for a few years!

After studying this for about half a year, waiting for the 2016 models to come out, it seems that GMC is making some of the changes that we had hoped for. Especially if they put 8 gears into the transmission for the 5.3 engine. The front of the LT is great, if not perfect to me and my color choice and interior is somewhat odd, but can be accommodated only by GMC. The only styling issue is the entertainment console. It is the current fad, so it is presented too heavily. It should be toned down a bit and made a bit more classy. At least they don't have screens ascending from the dashboard. The rest of the truck has the add-ons that make it fully functional for the way we use a truck. We typically order a truck and get exactly what we want and not buy anything that we don't. (We think a skylight is stupid if not dangerous. What happens if you roll over and the ground is not flat and bare?) So, we are waiting for the pricing and list to come out to see which dealer wants to sell one to us.

i like the big style grille, after all, is a truck !!! don't expect the Acadia grille on this.. but looks like a jeep Cherokee or wrangler instead of GMC front.
also the fog lights are to small for a truck. they should keep a close appearance of the existing 2015, i like the back end light/tale..
i like the style 2015 gmc /chevy square boulqui muscled design. what i will don't get is why 2 company's (even with the same ownership) creates the exact same vehicle with the same interior to only change the grille and charge $10.000 difference for the same trim. i will expect a brand to be unique....

also something that i don't like (on GMC or any other car company) is the integration of electric Power steering assisted.
this is something that many brands are introducing, they say that is for better handling and stability, but is also connected to the OBD computer and in case of GMC, with On-star.
this will be added to the list with the electric brake and electric speed control
i don't like the idea of be in a car that can be remote controlled with me inside.

Hackability: Hackers might be able to manipulate the Ford's SYNC , Infiniti Connection, OnStar, BMW ConnectedDrive, Safety Connect , Range Rover, Chrysler Uconnect , FIAT Uconnect system, which includes navigation, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth phone pairing. Plus, the brakes, engine and steering systems could be exposed, leaving potential vulnerabilities in adaptive cruise control, parking assistance, crash mitigation and lane-departure warning systems.
