GMC Denali Trucks Sierra and Colorado
Created to blend what only a decade ago would have seemed unmixable concepts – luxury and pickup trucks – the Denali line takes two of the best trucks on the market and gives them an upscale, luxury crossover look and feel, inside and out.
Even though the GMC Canyon Denali and Sierra Denali trucks are different in many ways, they also share many similarities.
The first and most important one is the strategy behind the Denali trim – pure opulence and premium performance from engine to technology. That’s why both models come with perks like a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated and ventilated leather-appointed front seats, premium contrast stitching, an 8.0-inch touchscreen as part of the infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Another similarity is the excellent ride quality and the hosting under the hood of some of the most powerful engines in the pickup class.
The Canyon comes with a standard engine that can produce 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Coupled with a responsive 10-speed automatic, that’s enough power to tow upwards of 7000 pounds.
There’s also an optional Duramax 2.8-liter diesel for the Canyon. It will belt out 181 horsepower and an impressive 369 pound-feet of torque which pushes the towing power at 7,700 pounds and nets future owners 28 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Sierra comes with a standard 5.3-liter V-8 that produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Two upgrades are available. One is the mighty 6.2-liter V-8 that belts out a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the other a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel with 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
The best part about the Sierra Denali is that it also includes GMC’s Dynamic Fuel Management system for both V8s, allowing them to operate under 17 different patterns between 2 and 8 cylinders. It optimizes consumption and makes sure you’re never short on power.
Both Denali trucks carry aesthetically distinctive marks, like the 20-inch Diamond-Cut Machined Aluminum wheels on the Denali, or the GMC Signature C-Shape LED Lighting on the Sierra or the embroidered Denali front head restraints on both.
The Sierra Denali also includes a Bose Premium Sound System, authentic open-pore ash wood trim, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, plus a wireless charging pad.
Here at Northwest Hills in Torrington Connecticut, we’ve been selling GMC trucks for the past 20+ years, and we’re stunned to see how much they’ve evolved in the past 5 to 7 years. The entire pickup truck class reinvented itself by adopting crossover-like comfort and technology. A GMC truck in 2020 is light years away from any truck build just a few years back, and the evolution doesn’t show signs of stopping.
