3 Important Features of The 2019 GMC Sierra

The GMC Sierra was first introduced a decade ago, and finally, after years of no updates and developments, we’re seeing a changeover with the coming of the 2019 GMC Sierra. This new model will get a variety of new features, technology, and styling that will make it stand out from its mechanically identical cousin, the Chevrolet Silverado.

1. Exterior

The new exterior design, which made its debut during a live event in Detroit, will make the truck look bigger and bolder. This is especially noticeable up front where there’s a new chrome grille, a taller hood, new C-shaped headlights with LEDs for DRLs, and all-new taillights. Buyers can opt for the 22-inch wheels, that will add more height to the truck. To wrap it all off, the new Sierra is made with carbon fiber bed that adds toughness and allows GMC to make the truck lighter compared to its predecessor and competitors.

2. Interior

Inside, the Sierra is better than ever. Thanks to the premium Denali trim level, the Sierra’s interior has bigger headroom and legroom (the best in its class, in fact) and gets a host of premium materials all throughout the cabin—leather upholstery for the seats, open-pore wood trim on the center tunnel, and dark-finish aluminum on the center console.

As a first in its segment, the Sierra will get a multi-color heads-up display measuring 3.0 inches in height and 7.-inches in width. It can be customized to display the data of your choice. Other features include a Rear Camera Mirror and safety suite such as Side Blind Zone Alert, Pedestrian Detection, and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking. For the infotainment system, there’s an app that is based on the GMC IntelliLink platform.

3. Powertrain

The Sierra has expanded its powertrain. There’s an update to the 6.2-liter engine and the 5.8-liter V-8s. Addthe addition in the lineup is the all-new 3.0-liter inline-6 cylinder turbodiesel option. The latter came from GMC’s Duramax lineup, which also includes power found in the Sierra HD and Canyon.

The 5.3-liter can produce 355 horsepower while the 6.2-liter can cough up 420 horsepower. Hopefully, there will be at least modest improvements for the power output.

4 Things We Need To Take Note Of Regarding The SsangYong Musso Pickup

SsangYong Musso (12)

South Korean brand SsangYong brought their new Musso pickup to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show not to compete with the Fords and Chevrolets of the truck segment, but to carve a niche of its own. Musso is the same name being used by the brand for its line of affordable SUVs, which is literally sending a message to the truck enthusiasts out there that the Musso will be cheaper compared to a Ford Ranger and a Chevy Silverado.

1. Design

The Musso is similarly designed to SsangYong’s Rexton SUV since they both use the same architecture—body-on-frame construction made out of high-grade steel. It has tones of useful features and functions like a load deck with a rear that folds flat, giving tons of space to the owner.

2. Interior

What you’ll find inside the SsangYong Musso is exactly what you’ll expect from a South Korean automaker. The design is pristine and everything is well-appointed—from the dashboard to the connectivity functions. The dashboard, in particular, hosts a mounted eight-inch touchscreen that comes standard across the whole range. The tech suite includes DAB radio, Bluetooth, and MP3 connectivity. For the higher variants, there’s an option for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

3. Powertrain

Under the hood, the SsangYong Musso is quite impressive. The powertrain is being headed by a 2.2-liter turbo diesel that can now churn out 181 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This is an increase of 5 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque from the e-XDi220 that SsangYong built.

4. Solid Truck

The SsangYong Musso pickup may not be your first choice. It may not even be your second choice, but it brings a lot to the table—everything you would want to have in your pickup truck. That being said, this means that the South Korean brand has the opportunity to carve its very own niche in this tough market.
