Tuesday, January 31st 2017. | GMC

It is impossible to see a new 2018 GMC Sierra with small update around the exterior because the company did it for the current generation, but they might provide more for the top model in 2018 season. It will be a new pickup truck and GMC will provide upgraded platform that is also applied for the new Silverado. The engine will be the same as before, but it has an upgrade. We do expect to see more economical V6 turbo engines for the 1500 model. Some serious changes will be added for the cabin.

2018 GMC Sierra Exterior

2018 GMC Sierra has more chopped design with the bigger radiator grille. It will have larger dimension but everything has not been confirmed yet. The design language is still the same as before with the abundance of big badge on the grille with the red letters and the chrome finish. The wheel arches are big to complete the large wheels for its muscular design.

Even there is a big indication that the cabin of the car has significant changes. The front panel is massive with the center console will be redesigned to make it more modern than the previous model. The higher center tunnel holds the gear selector. It is possible to make it as a small joystick but everything is still a rumor. The top model will be the Denali with more premium upholstery together with the trimming to help the new 2018 GMC Sierra has more luxurious look than ever.

2018 GMC Sierra Engine

Likely, they will keep their tradition to go with the three versions starting from the 1500, 2500 and the 3500. Each of them has different size and engine design. The current generation has naturally aspirated V8 and V6 engine that is capable to provide 285 hp aluminum block V6 for the standard modification and they wouldn’t go with the V8 engine and 5.3 liter, but more with the new turbocharged V6 with the same 4.3 liter. The brand new turbocharged V6 engine is possible to offer with the less displacement to deal with the strong rival, Ford which has V8 engine and 6.2 liter EcoBoost. It also has cylinder deactivation system to provide better fuel consumption for all 2018 GMC Sierra models.

2018 GMC Sierra Release Date and Price

2018 GMC Sierra is expected to be launched in the end of 2017 or in the beginning of 2018. Its exact date has not been announced by the official and we think that they might start the presentation at North American Auto Show. As a new pickup truck, it will get more advanced technology design and it is reasonable if the cost can be more than the current model. The base version can be about $30,000 or more.
