GMC spreads Denali lineup to Sierra HD

03/10/2010, 12:01 AMBY ANDREW GANZ

For the first time ever, GMC will offer a luxury-laden Denali variant of its hauler-friendly Sierra HD pickup range. The truck unit of General Motors will now offer a Denali version on all but one of its offerings.

Set to go on sale in early summer, the Sierra Denali Heavy Duty will come standard with the automaker’s 6.0-liter Vortec gasoline V8 engine but will offer the new 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel that debuted recently in the Silverado HD.

That diesel V8 cranks out a solid 397 horsepower and 765 lb-ft. of torque at just 1,600 rpm and comes mated to a new six-speed Allison automatic transmission. Capable of running on B20 biodiesel, the big V8 can propel the Sierra Denali HD to 60 mph in less than 9 seconds and can tow a maximum of 15,600 lbs. with a fifth-wheel hitch.

To set the Denali apart from the standard Sierra Heavy Duty, the truck gets a unique four-bar chrome grille, chrome exterior door handles and accents and a choice of 18 or 20-inch chrome alloy wheels. Three colors will be on offer: Black, Stealth Gray and White.

Inside, the Sierra Denali HD gets the standard Denali tricks – look for unique brushed aluminum trim, upgraded leather seats and a whole host of standard equipment.

The Sierra Denali HD debuts today at the Work Truck Show in St. Louis.

2011 GMC Sierra HD gets New 6.6-Liter V8 Diesel with 397HP and a Denali Edition

About a month after the introduction of the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, General Motors released details on the Chevy's twin and the firm's second rival to Ford's 2011 F-Series Super Duty, the 2011 GMC Sierra Heavy-Duty (HD) that will go on sale this summer.

Featuring the same mechanical tweaks as the latest Silverado, the GMC Sierra enters the 2011 model year with a new 6.6L Duramax turbo diesel, suspension and brake upgrades as well as a new Denali version.

We already knew about the 6.6-liter V8 diesel from the Silverado, but GM has now released output figures for the new engine that delivers 397 horsepower at 3,000 rpm and 765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) at 1,600 rpm.

GM is still holding back the mpg numbers, but the company did say that with the diesel engine the Sierra can cover a distance of around 680 miles on the highway from the 36 gallon tank, which comes to 18.8 mpg US.

The Sierra HD is also offered with a 6.0-liter V8 gasoline engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

GM says that the 2011 model has an increased towing capability of up to 20,000 lbs./9,072 kg) and payload of up to 6,335 lbs./2,873 kg (depending on the version).

For the first time, GMC will offer a premium version of the Siera bearing the firm's Denali nametag.

The Sierra Denali HD comes exclusively on the 2500HD chassis, in a 4WD crew cab standard box configuration and is available with both the gasoline and diesel V8s.

Special features include the four-bar, chrome grille with round air inlets, body-color bumpers, chrome door handles, chrome accents and 18- and 20-inch polished forged aluminum wheels.

Inside the cabin benefits from specific brushed aluminum trim, power-adjustable pedals, a Bose premium surround audio system and 12-way power seats. A heated steering wheel, heated and cooled leather-appointed seating is optionally available.
