GMC Expands the Sierra Denali HD range

GMC will expand the 2011 Sierra Denali HD range, with the exclusive line now available in both 2500 (3/4 ton) and 3500 series (1 ton) versions.

The new Sierra Denali HDs are the range toppers of the facelifted 2011 Sierra heavy duty trucks that are scheduled to enter the market this summer.

As GMC has received positive responses (from consumers, media and dealers) for the recently announced 2011 Sierra Denali HD 2500 series, the company has decided to add the new Denali versions.

A 2WD version of the Denali HD 2500 series (3/4 ton) together with Denali HD crew cab versions of the 3500 series (1 ton) for both single and dual rear wheel models in 2WD and 4WD applications will be available. These will join the already announced crew cab, 4WD version of the 2500 series (3/4 ton).

Our Denali line sets the premium standard for the industry,” said Lisa Hutchinson, GMC product marketing director. “We received such an overwhelming response to the new Sierra Denali 2500HD, that we worked quickly and decided to extend the model into the 3500HD series so those GMC buyers can also benefit from blending capability with premium features and styling.

The Denali HD vehicles are powered by a petrol 6 liter V8 engine, which is mated to a six speed automatic transmission. As an optional feature, the company offers the the new Duramax 6.6 liter turbo diesel unit, which uses the Allison 1000 six speed automatic gearbox. The powerplant delivers 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque and offers B20 biodiesel capability.
