The exterior body of Sierra 2019 is made of a perfect combination of steel and aluminum. It has shed a weight of almost 300 lbs. and for this GMC has used aluminum for framing the doors, hood and the tailgate. The Cargo boxes are mainly composed of a roll-formed steel that has become 50% stronger than before. One more feature added to this model is a MultiPro tailgate design with an attached step with the assist handle that can open in two different ways to be used as a makeshift workstation on a job site. All this is to improve the utility value and performance of the truck.
