For 2014, the GMC Sierra Denali returns with more gusto and greater towing power. The upcoming Denali will offer an optional 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 with a potent 420 horsepower (estimated) and 450 lb-ft of torque. With this powerplant GMC claims the Denali will have the most power and torque of any light-duty pickup. Trailerists will like the fact it will also give it a best-in-class 12,000-pound towing capacity.
Denali’s standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine will be rated a still strong 355 horses, and GM reports an EPA-estimated 23 highway mpg. Mileage for the 6.2-liter V-8 hasn’t been announced.
GMC Denalis will feature special 20-inch chrome rims and a chrome grille, plus matching body-colored bumpers and low-draw LED running lights. Inside there will be an eight-inch LCD dash screen, which can be configured to display audio, telephone, GPS navigation and other settings. Touch navigation and smart-phone connectivity are standard, along with plenty of USB ports. Additional standard features include a premium Bose audio, parking sensors, ventilated seats, and a heated steering wheel. A sunroof and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system will be stand-alone options and a safety package adds lane-departure warnings and forward-collision alerts.
The rugged off-road Z71 4×4 package will include hill descent control, skid plates, and Rancho shocks. Pricing for the 2014 Denali, which goes on sale later this year, has not yet been announced.
