It’s time for the all-new GMC Sierra to get its flagship Denali version added to the range, which arrives now at dealerships in the US market.
The flagship version of the GMC Sierra offers exclusive features such as the Adaptive Ride Control suspension that offers better road isolation and control, thanks to the system’s active dampers that can be individually adjusted every 2 milliseconds.
On the outside, the new Sierra Denali also gets 20-inch alloys as standard, a specific bright multidimensional grille along with several chrome accents, body-colored bumpers and high-intensity LED headlamps, fog lamps and taillights.
Inside the premium truck there are heated and ventilated front seats, a heated rear outboard seat, a seven-speaker Bose Premium Sound System with Richbass Woofer in the center console and a GMC Premium 8-inch infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto among others.
Power comes from the segment’s “most powerful V8”, meaning a 6.2-liter engine producing 420hp and 460lb-ft of torque. The powerplant also features what the company calls Dynamic Fuel Management, which includes a cylinder-deactivation system.
Unlike other similar systems, the tech feature in the Sierra Denali can operate in 17 different patterns, ranging from running on two to the full eight cylinders, depending on demand. A 10-speed automatic transmission offers reduced vibrations and better shift quality.
Of course, features like the Multipro Tailgate that offers six unique functions and positions and the Carbon Fiber Pickup Box are also present, with GMC claiming that the latter offers “best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance”.
“GMC ignited the premium truck market 17 years ago with the launch of the Sierra Denali and the next-generation model sets a new standard with unparalleled advancements and exclusive design,” said Rich Latek, marketing director of GMC. “It offers more upscale appointments, purposeful technologies and capability – solidifying Denali as the ultimate in professional grade.”
GMC didn’t announce pricing details just yet, so expect a report on that coming pretty soon.
