’19 GMC Sierra Elevation
GMC likes to call the new Elevation model “a statement in design, capability, and advanced connectivity.” That’s a polite way of saying the ’19 double-cab–based truck looks nicely badass. It comes standard with the new 2.7L turbocharged four-cylinder matched to an eight-speed trans for 310 horses and 348 lb-ft of torque. You can still opt to give your truck the 5.3L V-8; in 2019, the new 3.0L diesel six-cylinder will also be available. You can also go for the X31 Off Road package—dual exhaust, Rancho shocks, a locking rear diff, Hill Descent Control, skidplates— and the Prograde Trailering System and Trailering App for easier connection of a trailer.
