2019 GMC Sierra Denali Is Heading To Dealerships

GMC is entering the future with its updated lineup of pickup trucks that carry new features and technologies. The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali is now arriving in dealerships, ushering in a new era for the Sierra 1500 trucks.

The Sierra 1500 has grown in every dimension for the 2019 model year. According to reports, the truck now has a longer wheelbase and a longer body in crew cab form. To differentiate itself from the Silverado, which are also arriving in showrooms this week, the Sierra 1500 features a different grille, a new tailgate that can be configured into six different positions, and a new carbon fiber pickup box.

The Denali models will include exclusive upgrades such as a bolder front fascia with massive amounts of chrome, adaptive ride control for better body control, and genuine open-pore ash wood trim and dark-finish aluminum inside the cabin. Other significant changes are the heated and ventilated seats, the heads-up display, the 8-inch touchscreen, the rear camera mirror display, and the standard 20-inch aluminum wheels or available 22-inch wheels.

The Denali will be available in crew cab configuration and options for either a rear-wheel or a four-wheel drive. The standard model would come with a 5.3-liter V8 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic. The four-wheel-drive models will come with an option of a 6.2-liter V8 engine that can deliver 420 horsepower and pair with a 10-speed automatic. There are also plans to have a 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine paired with a 10-speed automatic in the Sierra lineup.

The Denali will be the top premium pickup in the Sierra lineup. The two-wheel-drive Denali starts at $54,700 plus a $1,495 destination charge.

The Sierra happens to be a big seller for the GMC. At the end of the second quarter, GMC sold about 100,874 Sierra pickups, up by 1.7 percent from the same period last year.

The Future Is Here With The 2018 Opel GT X Experimental Concept Car


It might only be a concept car for now, but the 2018 Opel GT X Experimental is serious about changing the way we see crossovers in the future. This is the first car that Opel/Vauxhall revealed after the PSA Group’s acquisition of the brand by GM less than a year ago.

The concept car showcases all the important steps that Opel are willing to take to transform the brand. Come 2024, Opel plans to electrify its entire lineup, introduce a new design language, release a number of crossovers, develop an autonomous driving system, and showcase new models. We expect that the Corsa, the Astra, and the Mokka will be replaced by new and exciting models.

What Opel wants is to offer a car that is focused on customer utility and satisfaction, practicality and functionality, and convenience. The design of the 2018 Opel GT X Experimental will be focused on having a height of more than 60 inches and a minimalistic layout, which could be seen on the integration of the rear doors to the rear panel of the car.

It is most likely that the current model the Experimental will closely resemble is the Mokka, which is the smallest Opal crossover that was intended to sit on top of the Chevrolet Trax. Obviously, this new one would be smaller than the Trax.

The GT X Experimental’s electric motors haven’t been revealed yet, but Opel did say that the car will feature a 50-kWh “compact next-generation lithium-ion battery with inductive charging.” All of the newcomers and their successors in Opel’s lineup for the next years will likely be powered by an electric engine, too.

The 2018 Opel GT X Experimental will also be revealed with a Level 3 self-driving ability that Opel will be studying about on the next cars.

 

2019 Hyundai Elantra Gets New Angular Face

2019 hyundai elantra (1)

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra is getting a radical facelift that gives the compact sedan a more angular look than before. Gone is the rounded front fascia of the current model and in its place is a fascia with lots of sharp corners. Even the headlights and the fog lights change to triangle-shaped units and the grille is also sharper.

The headlights intersect with the grille so this makes for an interesting new design. The base of the headlights match up with the top-most slat in the grille and the lights intersect with some of the grille’s top corners. The two new creases on the hood are also leveled up with the vertical slats in the grille.

The car’s rear is also updated. The taillights, like the headlights, have sharpened corners. The housing of the license plate is moved to the bumper from the trunk lid. The large Elantra lettering stretches across the lid of the bumper. This design is similar to the Sonata midsize sedan.

The changes are attractive but the angular lines don’t specifically fit the sides. Meanwhile, the overall silhouette of the car retains the soft and organic lines of the current model.

The safety features of the car are improved. The 2019 Hyundai Elantra gets a camera-based forward collision prevention, lane-keeping assist, and driver attention alert as standard equipment on the second-lowest SEL trim and above.

On the other hand, all trim levels come with a five-inch touchscreen as standard along with a rear-view camera and dynamic guidelines on the screen.

The base SE model is paired with a manual transmission but equipped with Bluetooth and steering wheel controls. The Limited trim, the top end of the model, has an additional eight-speaker sound system with subwoofer, Qi wireless phone charging, and Safe Exit Assist, which warns drivers of approaching cars when the door is open.

Under the hood, we find the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 147 horsepower. There’s also the 1.4-liter engine that makes 128 horsepower. The Elantra Sport churns out 201 horsepower, but Hyundai said they will have a restyled version later this year.
