What we now know as the GMC Sierra originated back in 1962 when General Motors released their new pickup truck with two body styles – Fenderside and Wideside. Five years later after great success, GM updated the trucks to have a more modern appearance as the 1970s were quickly approaching, and the Fenderside and Wideside became even more popular.
Nearly 20 years later, the GMC Sierra was introduced in 1999 as a replacement for the older models. The first Sierra models had Regular and Extended cab variations and an even roomier Crew Cab was released in 2005. Again, with another decade on the horizon, GMC redesigned the Sierra in the 2019 model year, beginning a new generation of this beloved truck. The Sierra continues to offer everything drivers could hope for in a full-size pickup as it will surely continue to for years to come.
