GMC expanded today the Sierra lineup with the addition of a new 1500 Denali version. The new model will join the previously launched Sierra 1500 and Sierra Regular Cab and will be put on sale this fall.
When compared to the standard Sierra 1500 the new Devali version will add a signature Denali chrome grille, body-colored front and rear bumpers, a new set of unique 20-inch chrome wheels and a polished stainless steel exhaust outlet. For the interior it received a few additional Denali-specific details, like a script on the bright door sills and embossed into the front seats and real aluminum trim.
The new 1500 Denali will be offered with a standard 5.3 liter EcoTec3 V-8 engine with 355 horsepower or an optional 6.2 liter EcoTec3 V-8 engine that will produce an estimated 420 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.
As standard features the model is offering an eight-inch Color Touch navigation radio with Intellilink, projector-style headlamps with LED signature daytime running lights, a Bose audio system, heated and cooled leather front bucket seats, a heated steering wheel, front and rear park assist and a power sliding rear window with defogger.
Customers can further customize their Denali models with two additional packages: a Z71 Off-Road Package that adds monotube Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control and transfer case shield, and a Driver Alert Package that includes Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and patented Safety Alert Seat Technology.
