    GMC Refreshes the Sierra for 2016


    • GMC's bread and butter Sierra series gets an upated look for 2016

    Following the debut of the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC's released pictures of the new look for its bread and butter Sierra series for 2016.

     

    The update consists of new "C" Shape tail lights and front running lights, along with a new front fascia. As in the Silverado, GMC's Intelilink system will also be updated with Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto.

     

    Technical updates and pricing will be released at a later date.

    what a waste. this could have waited another 2 years, while the terrain that actually needs work was jokingly "refreshed".

     

    Uh, first off, both are merely refreshes, and secondly, the existing Terrain is still RAKING in cash for GM. So what's the problem?

     

    The Terrain's platform is at the end of its life and can't use many of GM's latest advances or engines, however, they're far along in the process of engineering its successor (see the Buick Envision). GM's plans for the Terrain nameplate specifically are unknown.

    Glad U read that poster his rights. The Terrain is fine.. sells absolutely splendid and is literally getting a  complete redo for 2017.

     

    GM doing refreshes on both the Silvy and Sierra so soon, while they both on the uptick, make me nostalgic for my younger days when cars never looked the same from one year to the next. There was always something different each year. This last 20 years of a car looking the same for 5+ years is absolutely insulting to enthusiasts.. and a change here or there pulls in new buyers

    Yes the Terrain sales are as high as ever and the new one will be here next year as a 2017.

     

    The refresh it has this year will carry it to fleet sales.

     

    I love the new front end here.

    It looks tough while not trying to be a semi.

    I like...its just that I do prefer a rectangle for a grill rather than that hexagon....but it is nice. I still prefer the GMC version over the Chevy in 2016.

     

    I wonder if a regular hexagon would have looked nicer in my eyes....or an octagon...leaving the lower angles the same while the top sides being shorter than the lower ones...

    (just thinking out loud with the last paragraph)

    Uh... I think you roughly described a Taurus grille.

    Uh....I think you are right....maybe that previous post deserves a down vote...

     

     

    In my defense. I was pitcher for my son's baseball team this afternoon. I was and still am dehydrated it seems. That must explain the delusional thinking process. :dizzy:

    Contrary to my rep, I don't hate Ford. I just laugh at many fordies. I actually recommended an SHO to my buddy a month ago.

    He bought a Charger instead, but that's neither here nor there :D

    It's a little busy looking up front, but it's an improvement in that it no longer looks like an old Ford SuperDuty.  New taillights should help bring some distinction from the Silverado.

    It was better before. MOAR GRILL doesn't equate to better design.

     

    The only way they can add more grill at this point is to ship it with a gas powered grill, a charcoal grill, and a George Foreman grill.

    I was neither offended not thrilled by the design of these trucks in the first place. Their genius lies in GM's refinement of proven tech and styling. I suppose that could also be considered a weakness, but if so there are far worse weaknesses to have. FWIW, I bought my Ram because the styling appealed to me and it had tech that I consider both innovative AND effective in the real world (small diesel, air suspension).

    In any event, these trucks will doubtless continue to sell and perform well in the segment. Thrilling they ain't. But they're number one for a reason.

    yes the Terrain is selling well, but to say that is why it doesnt need a refresh is the same as my argument that the Sierra doesnt need a refresh. I know the Terrain will be new in 17, so why wait until 16 for any changes? They should have come in 13-14. The last Sierra went 7 model years without any refresh, does GM think the current one is so bad looking that it needs help? These are some of the thoughts going through my head.

    Yeah, agree that the grills are kinda overkill at this point.

     

    I like the light treatments though....almost gives a bit of retro look to it......

    What are you talking about, the Terrain IS REFRESHED for 2016! It has a new face and tail lights, as well as some interior changes. It also received the 3.6L V6 powertrain back in 2013 to make it more competitive. GM is not sitting on the Equinox/Terrain as much as you think.
