  • The Elevation variation comes as an all new trim to the Sierra line-up
  • Crew-cab model boasts a bold and confident attitude with elevated capability
  • Additional regular-cab model will exclusively be available only in the Middle East 
Dubai, UAE, July 02, 2018:  The launch of the next generation Sierra lineup continues with the introduction of an all-new trim, the 2019 GMC Sierra Elevation, to the region. Adding to other recently revealed bold, powerful models of the Sierra, the Elevation makes a statement in design, capability and advanced connectivity. In addition to the crew cab model, the Middle East will be the only region in the world to offer a regular cab variant of the 2019 GMC Sierra Elevation – a testament to the Sierra's significance in the region.
 
The Sierra Elevation, along with Denali, AT4, SLT and SLE is designed to meet the needs and preferences of discerning GMC customers. The next generation Sierras are built upon a prominent foundation of strong bodywork that incorporates chiseled fenders and a tall, powerful hood capped with a bigger and bolder grille than any Sierra prior. Elevation sets itself apart with distinct monochromatic door handles, bumpers and grille surround. The commanding design is amplified with black exterior accents, including the grille inserts, tow hooks, side window trim and available 20-inch aluminum wheels.
 
Like other modern GMC designs, advanced lighting technology plays a key role in shaping the 2019 Sierra Elevation. New high-intensity LED headlamps that incorporate C-shaped 'light blade' signature lighting elements, LED fog lamps and C-shaped LED elements within the taillights are all standard.
 
Sajed Sbeih, Head of Brand, GMC Middle East, said, “The Sierra has often been recognized and celebrated as a legendary car across the region; and the highly anticipated, all-new 2019 Sierra will certainly foster the heritage of GMC's light-weight pick-up truck among customers. I'm also happy to announce the 2019 Sierra Elevation will also be coming to our region exclusively in regular-cab model and take customers to an elevated level of design, capability and advanced connectivity.”
 
The Sierra Elevation is offered with a two-wheel-drive configuration on the regular cab models only) and an available four-wheel-drive configuration for the extended regular cab and crew cab models. The next generation crew cab has nearly 3 inches of additional rear-seat legroom compared to the current model and best-in-class crew cab front head- and legroom (max.).
 
Elevated Capability
 
The Sierra Elevation leverages innovative technology and smart engineering to enhance capability and elevate driver confidence. With the Traction Select System and the twist of a dial, the driver can choose from preset modes designed for distinct purposes or conditions. Selecting one of these modes adjusts Sierra's transmission shift points, throttle mapping and other systems to optimize performance for the situation at hand. Tour mode, for instance, is ideal for everyday driving, while Terrain mode configures the Sierra for venturing off the beaten path.
 
For those who frequently venture off-road, Sierra Elevation is available with the X31 Off Road package, which includes unique suspension tuning with Rancho shocks, locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control, protective underbody skid-plates, heavy-duty air filter, dual exhaust system and a two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing topped off with all-terrain tires.
 
If trailering a camper or other gear is part of your adventure, the 2019 Sierra Elevation was designed from square one with trailering in mind. The available ProGrade Trailering System incorporates a number of innovative features, including an advanced available Trailering App, designed to help take the guesswork out of connecting and towing a trailer.
 
Purposeful Functionality
 
The Sierra Elevation was engineered to get passengers and their gear — be it kayaks, camping, mountain bikes, motorcycles or beyond — where theyneed to go, building on the foundation of the best-in-class cargo volume standard with every all-new Sierra: 2,523 liters on standard box models. Thanks to more tie-downs, enhanced cargo lighting and larger rear corner steps, the task of loading and securing gear is easier than ever. A 120V outlet in the rear supplies power to equipment needed for a day at the campsite or on the trails.
 
Next Generation Performance
 
The Sierra Elevation is available with a number of new engine and transmission configurations that deliver the perfect blend of power and capability.
 
Standard on the 2019 Sierra Elevation extended and crew cab models is an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. The regular cab model comes with a 5.3L V-8 engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission and Active Fuel Management technology (cylinder deactivation), boosting the stats to 355 horsepower and 519 Newton-Meter of torque, which improve capability.
 
The next generation 5.3-liter V-8 is also available exclusively on the extended and crew cab models of the Sierra Elevation, in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This improved version of the 5.3-liter V-8 utilizes a new Dynamic Fuel Management system that enables the engine to operate on one to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency.
 
Advanced Connectivity
 
The extended and crew cab models of the 2019 Sierra Elevation boast a standard 7-inch diagonal GMC Infotainment System (also available in 8-inch system) that incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, along with a six-speaker audio system. The regular cab models come with a similar infotainment system but 8 inches in size along with a two-speaker audio system. 
 
A premium GMC Infotainment System that incorporates a higher resolution touchscreen, advanced personalization features, voice recognition functionality and available in-vehicle apps is optional on the extended and crew cab models only, as is a 7-speaker Bose premium audio system. USB Type A and Type C ports for charging mobile devices are standard.
