Much like its Chevrolet cousin, the 2016 GMC Sierra gets a facelift

Not too long ago, General Motors had Chevrolet reveal a newly facelifted 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, mainly incorporating a series of minor updates, most of which were involved with the truck’s exterior design.

That said, it was only a matter of time until the Silverado’s nearly-identical cousin, the GMC Sierra followed suit. Well, here it is.

Like the Silverado, the 2016 GMC Sierra receives a bunch of exterior tweaks that are really confined to the front-end. These changes include new LED c-shaped day-time running lights with new LED low-beam headlights, updated LED fog lamps, slightly tweaked bumpers both fore and aft, and c-shaped rear LED taillights to match the front.

There are also some new available capabilities in terms of interior tech for the Sierra, much like the Silverado. These new features include the integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the IntelliLink infotainment system. Otherwise, the Sierra remains mechanically the same.

Sales are ready to commence during the fourth quarter of this year.

Check out the super-brief press blast after the jump, if you really must.

DETROIT — GMC’s best-selling truck has great momentum coming off its best June since 2006 and 12 consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains.

With exterior styling as its top reason for purchase, the new truck adds key design elements: LED “C-shaped” signature daytime running lights and LED headlights; new front fascia and grilles for each trim level; new LED fog lamps; new bumpers; and new “C-shaped” LED taillights.

The new Sierra will be available in the fourth quarter of this year, with additional details and information on the new model released in the coming months.
