GMC says it is taking its most popular pickup truck to the next level with the completely redesigned 2019 Sierra Denali and SLT.
Distinguished by bold design and segment-leading technologies, the next generation Sierra Denali once again redefines the premium pickup, while advancing Denali’s legacy as the pinnacle of GMC design, capability and refinement.
The 2019 Sierra Denali affirms its position as the most premium Sierra ever with segment-leading technologies and exclusive features.
The redesigned Sierra Denali offers a full suite of available advanced safety features, along with exclusive chassis technologies such as Adaptive Ride Control.
A taller, more confident stance gives Sierra Denali powerful proportions complemented by hallmark details such as a chrome grille with a sharp, precise dimensional pattern that epitomizes the truck’s attention to detail.
The truck is larger than the previous truck in virtually every dimension, and the larger grille and dramatic lighting accentuate its broad-shouldered stance.
The wheels are pushed closer to the corners and wear larger diameter tires. Denali features available 22-inch Ultra Bright aluminum wheels; the SLT model offers its own unique 22-inch dark aluminum wheels finished with chrome accents.
New, more prominent badging includes a bold DENALI nameplate on the tailgate —expressed in a new block-style typeface that echoes the truck’s strong proportions — below the signature GMC identification.
New versions of the proven 6.2-litre and 5.3-litre V8 engines will be joined by an all-new 3.0-litre inline-six turbo-diesel engine, expanding the powertrain lineup for the 2019 Sierra.
The 5.3-litre and 6.2-litre engines feature stop/start technology and new Dynamic Fuel Management that enables the engine to operate on one to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency.
The new diesel builds on GMC’s expertise with Duramax turbo-diesels offered in Sierra HD and Canyon models.
The available 6.2-litre and 3.0-litre engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Sierra Denali features an exclusive Adaptive Ride Control suspension system designed to provide premium driving refinement with exceptional responsiveness.
It employs sophisticated sensors to monitor road conditions and chassis responses in real time, enabling adjustments to active dampers every two milliseconds.
