GMC Sierra Denali Spy Shoot – GMC sierra denali
That GMC expects added than bisected of its redesigned 2020 Sierra HD pickups to be awash as top-level crew-cab Denali models tells you something: Best GMC buyers adopt their able trucks gussied up and loaded to the gunwales with affluence and technology. While the best amid the Sierra HD and its automated abreast twin, the appropriately beginning 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD 2500 and 3500, abundantly charcoal a amount of cast preference, anew accessible actualization absolute to the GMC are assuredly starting to accord it the feel of a exceptional big rig.
Make no mistake: Our drive in the new Sierra HD in Wyoming fabricated for appealing abundant the aforementioned acquaintance we afresh had with the adapted Silverado HD in Oregon. Both trucks are decidedly bigger and bolder than before, with sturdier frames, massively added towing and carriage capabilities, and smarter actualization all around. Except for its roof, none of the able Sierra’s beefy anatomy panels are aggregate with its light-duty brethren, and the end result, at atomic to our eyes, is an arty yet audibly added aesthetic and adamant actualization than its Chevrolet counterpart’s.
HIGHS: Massive capabilities, accomplished Allison chiral with alternative agent engine, accessible trailering cameras and connectivity
GMC says that acknowledgment from HD barter absent a added asperous attending after the Denali’s acreage of chrome was a big acumen for introducing the new AT4 model, which sits aloof beneath the Denali in the calendar and actualization monochromatic administration with blurred exoteric trim and arresting red advanced tow hooks. Although the Sierra HD AT4 doesn’t action the two-inch abeyance lift and asperous off-road tires as does the light-duty Sierra 1500 AT4, it does appear accepted with 18-inch auto and all-terrain tires (20s are available), drift plates, and an off-road abeyance with upgraded Rancho dampers that are alternative on added Sierra HDs. Also included on the AT4 is acropolis coast control, a traction-management arrangement with Off-Road mode, a configurable 15-inch head-up display, and a low-speed surround-view camera system.
While GMC has no affairs to aggrandize the Sierra 1500’s alternative failing CarbonPro burden bed to the big trucks, the brand’s trick, six-way MultiPro tailgate is accessible beyond the HD calendar and comes accepted on SLT, AT4, and Denali models. Adding to the MultiPro’s versatility is an alternative dealer-installed Kicker audio arrangement with Bluetooth, USB, and abetting connectivity, which brings affluence of bright complete to the outdoors after the charge to leave the barter apart with the windows down.
Our drive offered us little time with the Sierra HD’s accepted 401-hp 6.6-liter gas V-8, instead absorption on the absorbing adeptness of the alternative turbocharged 6.6-liter Duramax agent V-8 that GMC expects best HD barter to choose. Although not about as quiet in operation as the Sierra 1500’s alternative Duramax 4.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel, the HD’s $9890 advancement agent is appropriately aesthetic and brings acutely amaranthine amounts of grunt—445 application and 910 lb-ft of torque, to be exact—thanks in allotment to its bond with a new Allison 10-speed automated transmission. The about-face affection and accuracy of the new gearbox are impressively smooth, alike in its Tow/Haul approach and back tugging actively abundant loads, and it smartly downshifts in acknowledgment to active altitude to advance a abiding acceleration bottomward abrupt grades. Toggling the bankrupt anchor on the centermost assemblage added lessens the accent on the Sierra’s brakes.
Whether abandoned or heavily laden, the Sierra HD rides commendably able-bodied for a able barter over best alley surfaces, assimilation up bumps and undulations with appropriate acquiescence and little babble from the rear axle. The Sierra and Silverado HDs abide the alone able pickups in the articulation with absolute advanced suspensions, and while we wouldn’t alarm them agile, these behemoths are adequately accessible to action and acknowledging to council commands. All of the trucks we collection on the artery were all-wheel-drive crew-cab agent models, including single-rear-wheel 2500 AT4s, both abandoned and loaded with about 2000 pounds of logs in the bed, which seemed to accomplish little aberration to the GMC’s adeptness to stop and go. (Maximum burden accommodation for the new Sierra HD is 3615 pounds.) As with the new Silverado HD, conceivably one of the better things to acclimatize to in the Sierra HD is its added ride acme and basement position, which, accumulated with their accepted refinement, abundantly diminishes the faculty of acceleration extensive the driver.
LOWS: Simply massive on the road, bound gets expensive, autogenous still could feel added upscale.
Diesel Sierra HDs are rather agile on the move back agilely loaded, and the Duramax has affluence in assets back affairs a ample trailer. Alike in a dual-rear-wheel 3500 archetypal anchored to a about 12,000-pound fifth-wheel camper, affairs out into cartage or accelerating about slower cartage was decidedly uneventful. You absolutely feel the trailer’s weight, but it’s calmly controlled and never gives the faculty that it’s “driving the truck.” While boring a gooseneck architecture bivouac loaded to the Sierra HD 3500’s class-leading best of 35,500 pounds will decidedly tax its performance, the big GMC sits akin and still will move out with determination.
Towing a 14,000-pound accepted box bivouac abaft a single-rear-wheel 2500 archetypal showcased one of the Sierra HD’s coolest features, the alternative ProGrade Trailering system, which employs six cameras on the barter and two alternative cameras for the bivouac to accommodate up to 15 angle about the agent and of what’s abaft it through the centermost touchscreen affectation in the dash. Alike for acclimatized towers, the adeptness to see around, in, and around through it—with the ambush cellophane bivouac view—brings adored advance and confidence. Added accessibility comes from the Sierra HD’s adeptness to abundance altered bivouac profiles for tracking maintenance; to interface with and to ascendancy the functions of assertive trailers with the alternative In-Command ambassador and myGMC smartphone app; and the affluence with which the truck’s computers and cameras accomplish it for aloof one being to block up a bivouac and analysis that its lights are functioning.
As with the light-duty GMC Sierra, the HD models allotment abundant of their interiors, save for some trim and baby details, with their Chevrolet Silverado counterparts. The crew-cab offices of the up-level trucks we collection offered alveolate apartment advanced and rear, aboveboard ergonomics, and automated infotainment and disciplinarian advice systems with endless of connectivity options.
Yet, in such a tony, high-tech rig, the GMC’s berth abstracts and architecture are underwhelming, advancing off as alone a bashful advance over the antecedent model’s and an about negligible one over the latest Chevy’s. The Denali’s few and unimpressive pieces of different trim and copse accomplishment accurately of a decidedly badge effort, accustomed that Ram’s latest full-sizers accept befuddled accessible the aperture for absolutely comfortable autogenous treatments in pickups. Accustomed that the least-expensive Sierra HD AT4 and Denali models we collection stickered for a well-optioned $66,610—the costliest was an agitative $81,705—GMC is able-bodied positioned to action an alike greater exceptional acknowledgment for its acute buyers.
