GMC Doubles Up On 2016 Sierra Denali With Ultimate Edition

Did you know that the premium full-size truck segment has grown ten-fold since 2013? GMC does and so it’s upping its game with a slightly glossier version of its already luxed-up Sierra Denali called Ultimate Edition.

GMC says that it currently commands 15.5 percent of this niche category within the full-size pickup truck market, where average transaction prices exceed $55,000, up from, well, nothing back in 2013.

Offered exclusively on four-wheel drive 1500 crew cab models with either a 5’ 8” or 6’ 6” cargo bed, the 2016 Sierra Denali Ultimate adds meatier 22-inch instead of 20-inch wheels with chrome or black insert, a sunroof, chrome tow hooks, and Tri-Mode Power Steps that shift rearward to help in reaching the cargo bed easier. It also gets Lane Keep Assist, integrated trailer brake controller and IntelliBeam automatic headlamp control as standard.

Other than that, it’s the same truck as the Sierra Denali with two engine options, a 5.3-liter V8 or the 420hp and 460 lb-ft of torque (623 Nm) 6.2-liter V8, both paired to an 8-speed automatic.

The Denali Ultimate will have its world premiere at the LA Auto Show later this week, before going on sale early next year.
