2019 GMC Sierra Denali Is A Tough-Looking Luxury Truck With A Carbon Fiber Bed

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 new 2019 GMC Sierra Denali leads a wider range that now includes the new AT4 and Elevation models.

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.

    Funny…. so after Ford moved to aluminum to free up weight, GM advertised how much more superior their steel beds were. So now I guess they see the need to lose weight too and CF is their way of saving face.

      If you read correctly, Chevrolet/GMC are not all aluminum like ford, but swing panels only. That bed is still steel ( or carbon fiber/Denali) and is stronger then before.

    This truck seem busy inside and out. I’m not saying it’s not a good truck or can’t compete with it’s competitors…just seem a bit busy.

      The driver seat view gave me a panic attack. 700 buttons and a touch screen?

        Gives you the option to use a button OR the touch screen. I suspect you’d get used to it pretty quick.

      • schnittz

        You ever owned a vehicle without buttons but a touch screen? I do, and I can’t wait to go back to buttons. Not only it’s annoying to always go through options to change your fan/hvac etc. settings, but it also distracts you from the road which raises the risk for an accident.

    The design is a mess and the interior is nearly identical to the outgoing model.

    GMC didn’t announce pricing details just yet… — My guess, 80K.
