    GMC's new-for-2019 Sierra 1500 took a less controversial styling route than its Chevy Silverado sibling while retaining the numerous upgrades foisted upon the next-generation pickup twins.

    GMC has just given us the first teaser image of the upcoming 2020 Sierra HD, in what looks to be Denali trim.
