Denali’s higher standard of design, engineering, and precision is evident at first glance, but take a closer look at what goes into our most premium professional-grade pickup.

When engineering and craftsmanship is held to a higher standard, as they are in the GMC Sierra Denali pickup truck, that dedication is immediately evident in the finished product. It’s visible in every millimeter of fit and finish. It’s felt in the grain of the leather-appointed seating surfaces. It shows in every Denali we build.

Our attention to detail allows Sierra Denali to reach a level of perfection like no other premium pickup. Sierra Denali’s commanding stance and bold exterior styling make a powerful first impression, but it’s GMC’s devotion to these details that make the difference. We invite you to take a closer look at precision through these new videos, or by experiencing Sierra Denali for yourself at your nearest GMC dealer.



Sierra Denali’s unique chrome grille is more than a visual hallmark – it’s a work of art. The bold insert incorporates precisely-shaped three-dimensional elements that lend them both depth and texture while reflecting light from every angle. And a two-stage electroplating process ensures Denali’s grille will shine brightly for years to come.


Lighting does more than cut a path through the darkness – it accentuates Sierra Denali’s sculpted forms and create a visual identity that’s instantly recognizable, day or night. From the new C-shaped signature LED DRL lighting and thin-profile LED fog lamps to the C-shaped patterns within the new taillights, state-of-the-art LED exterior lighting can be found throughout Denali’s exterior


There are over 8 million miles of road in North America, and no two road surfaces are truly alike. That’s why Sierra Denali is equipped with the Magnetic Ride Control system as standard equipment. Magnetic Ride Control analyzes road surfaces up to 1000 times a second and adjusts the advanced dampers to provide the best combination of ride quality and handling at any given moment.


With inlaid doors with triple seals and refined shear-type cab mounts, Sierra Denali has been designed from the ground-up to provide a quiet cabin – but Bose Active Noise Cancellation, available on Sierra Denali models equipped with the powerful 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8 engine, leverages the advanced technology within the seven-speaker Bose premium audio system to further elevate interior refinement.


Sierra Denali’s confident styling is backed up with capable powertrains, including the available 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8. With 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque on tap, Denali’s 6.2-liter V-8 is the most powerful gasoline engine in its class, delivering strong and confident power for effortless trailering and an undeniable presence.


GMC’s ingenious engineering and attention to detail are both reflected in the new Tri-Mode Power Step, which is available on Sierra Denali. These steps automatically extend when a cab door is opened to provide easy access, and retract when doors close to provide a clean, uncluttered appearance. Better yet, tapping a button on the edge of the step with your foot makes the step move rearward, providing side access to the front of the bed.
