2019 GMC Sierra Denali Arriving at Dealerships

2019 GMC Sierra Denali Arriving at Dealerships

Bold design, segment-leading technologies and premium amenities define Sierra Denali

2018-08-22

DETROIT — The all-new 2019 Sierra set the new benchmark for capability, refinement and innovation when introduced earlier this year. Now, the GMC Sierra Denali is arriving at dealerships and strengthening GMC’s position as the preeminent brand for premium truck buyers.

Denali is the flagship of the next-generation Sierra lineup, distinguished by iconic design cues and segment-leading technologies. It leads a broader, bolder range of precisely engineered trucks, including new AT4 and Elevation models1, developed for the segment’s most discerning customers.

“GMC ignited the premium truck market 17 years ago with the launch of the Sierra Denali and the next-generation model sets a new standard with unparalleled advancements and exclusive design,” said Rich Latek, marketing director of GMC. “It offers more upscale appointments, purposeful technologies and capability – solidifying Denali as the ultimate in professional grade.”

Along with its bold design and premium features, the next-generation Sierra Denali ups the ante in the segment with exclusive ride and handling and performance technologies designed to deliver a seamless balance of comfort, control and capability. They include new Adaptive Ride Control and the most powerful V-8 engine available in the class.

The new Sierra Denali is offered as a crew cab, with nearly 3 inches of additional rear-seat legroom compared to the previous model. That roomier cabin is trimmed with Denali-exclusive materials, including premium Forge leather-appointed seating, authentic open-pore wood trim and dark-finish aluminum decor.

The 2019 Sierra Denali affirms its position as the most premium Sierra ever, with segment-leading technologies and exclusive features, including:

  • GMC Exclusive, Industry-first MultiPro Tailgate is the most innovative pickup tailgate ever, with six unique functions and positions offering enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation and easier access to items in the box.
  • GMC Exclusive, Industry-first Carbon Fiber Pickup Box2The CarbonPro offers best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance.
  • All-new ProGrade Trailering System with in-vehicle Trailering App offers a connected comprehensive suite of trailering technology that brings more confidence to the towing experience.
  • Segment-first Multi-Color Head-Up Display projects key, customizable vehicle data on the windshield in a 3 x 7-inch display to help drivers keep their eyes on the road.
  • Segment-first Rear Camera Mirror gives the driver the option of using a traditional inside rearview mirror or a rearview camera mirror display that provides a wider, unobstructed view that can help overcome common visual obstructions such as occupants or cargo. This next-generation system features the ability for zoom and vertical tilt adjustment.   

Additional 2019 Sierra Denali highlights (standard and available features) include:

  • Denali-exclusive exterior elements, including a bright, multidimensional grille, chrome exterior accents and body-color bumpers.
  • New high-intensity LED headlamps that incorporate C-shaped “light blade” lighting elements, LED fog lamps and C-shaped LED elements within the taillights.
  • 20-inch aluminum wheels are standard, with 22-inch wheels available.
  • Integrated dual exhaust with bright polished outlets standard.
  • Heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seat and heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel are standard.
  • GMC Premium Infotainment System with 8-inch-diagonal HD color touchscreen, embedded navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection compatibility.
  • Customizable profiles, saved with each driver’s settings and presets and stored in the cloud, can be accessed and used in other compatible 2019 GMCs.

Ride and Handling Delivers Confidence
Sierra Denali’s exclusive Adaptive Ride Control offers premium ride comfort with better road isolation and control than ever. Through real-time monitoring of the road and driver inputs while accelerating, cornering, braking and trailering, the system’s active dampers can be individually adjusted every 2 milliseconds, based on sensor feedback.

The all-new Traction Select System allows drivers to choose from preset available drive modes that have been tailored for different terrain or weather conditions. It adjusts Sierra’s transmission shift points, throttle mapping and StabiliTrak to optimize performance for the situation. The system also reacts with the Adaptive Ride Control in Sierra Denali to further enhance the driving experience and refine the ride.

The available Traction Select system modes are:

  • Tour: The default mode of operation at every start-up, Tour is designed to deliver the right blend of refinement and efficiency for everyday use.
  • Sport: The transmission is eager to downshift in order to keep the engine in its peak powerband. Power steering assist is slightly reduced, making the steering feel more direct, communicative and sporty.
  • Snow: Available only on two-wheel-drive Sierras, Snow Mode optimizes  Sierra’s driveline for driving in wintry weather. In addition to leveraging Sierra’s standard Traction Control and StabiliTrak stability control systems, Snow Mode also provides a slower, less sensitive accelerator pedal calibration.
  • Off-Road: Designed for use for higher-speed driving on non-paved surfaces, Off-Road mode incorporates the same accelerator calibration as Snow Mode, giving the driver precise throttle control. Also incorporates unique StabiliTrak and traction control calibrations that allow for a little more wheelslip than on dry surfaces, in order to help carry momentum — important on gravel or in muddy situations.
  • Tow/Haul: Modifies the transmission calibration so that shift points are higher, allowing the engine to deliver peak power. It also initiates downshifts earlier in order to leverage engine braking and reduce wear on brake components. Tow/Haul also engages Grade Braking functionality so that on long, downhill stretches, a light touch of the brake pedal can initiate a downshift to slow the vehicle more efficiently.

The Autotrac 2-Speed Transfer Case, standard on Sierra Denali, offers a mechanical low range to provide amplified torque at low speeds — ideal for use on severe off-road terrain, slippery boat launches and in other low-traction situations.

Next-generation Sierra models, including the Denali, also feature a new electro-hydraulic power brake boost system rather than a conventional vacuum-assist system, for strong, smooth and consistent brake pedal feel when the bed is loaded or when trailering. The four-wheel disc brake system also features larger-diameter  Duralife brake rotors and larger brake pads to support its performance capability.

Segment’s most-powerful V-8 engine
The 2019 Sierra Denali’s available 6.2L V-8 engine is the segment’s largest displacement engine and most powerful, rated at an SAE-certified at 420 horsepower (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft of torque (623 Nm). It is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) debuts with the engine, offering industry-first cylinder deactivation technology that enables it to operate in 17 different patterns between two and eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power delivery and efficiency.

Sierra Denalis equipped with the optional 6.2L V-8 include a 10-speed automatic transmission designed to improve shift quality. It incorporates a new centrifugal pendulum absorber torque converter that reduces vibrations to improve smoothness, particularly during cylinder deactivation events.

Advanced connectivity
An 8-inch-diagonal GMC Premium Infotainment System with a high-resolution color touchscreen and embedded navigation that incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android phone projection compatibility3 is standard for the Sierra Denali. Also standard is a seven-speaker Bose® Premium Sound System with Richbass® Woofer in the center console. The infotainment system also features advanced personalization features, enhanced voice recognition functionality and offers downloadable in-vehicle apps, including Spotify, USA Today and FOX Sports.

Simple and easy to use, an all-new in-vehicle Trailering App utilizes sensors and cameras to help ease the process of towing in all stages: during hitching and setup, on the road and when responding to potential hazards. Features of the in-vehicle Trailering App include customized trailer profiles, pre-departure checklists, assistance while checking external lights and Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System (additional equipment and installation required) while offering an industry-first smartphone companion app for compatible devices.

Trooper’s left-lane law message goes viral

If you’re not passing someone, get out of the left lane. Simple. Courteous. In many states, it’s the law, too. Indiana State Police Sgt. Stephen Wheeles pulled someone over for violating the law, and took to Twitter on Saturday to talk about it as a reminder to other drivers.

The tweet resonated with many, and soon went viral. Since then, folks have been calling for Sgt. Wheeles (cool name, by the way) to get a raise and be awarded a Nobel Prize. Since Saturday, Sgt. Wheeles has had appearances on an Indiana sports radio station and a Fox News affiliate, and was the subject of an NPR Morning Edition segment. Indycar driver Graham Rahal called him his “hero.” Even former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman retweeted him.

The fame hasn’t gone to his head, though. Sgt. Wheeles has responded to the hype on Twitter humbly: “Wow … I am overwhelmed. You all are amazing! Just trying to do my part to make the roadways safer for the traveling public.”

Seeing the overwhelming response to a common-sense driving courtesy has us hoping for a better future in the passing lane. Now, if only we could get a message about the zipper merge to go viral …

The Yukon Graphite Edition includes 22-inch bright machined wheels with Carbon Flash Metallic pockets, black assist steps with gloss black accents, premium black chrome grille mesh insert and fog lamp surrounds, body-color grille surround, black roof rails, gloss black beltline moldings and additional black trim.

GMC Reaches New Heights with Next Gen 2019 Sierra Elevation

GMC Reaches New Heights with Next Gen 2019 Sierra Elevation

Double-cab model boasts a bold and confident attitude with elevated capability

2018-06-06

DETROIT — The launch of the next generation Sierra lineup continues with the introduction of the new 2019 GMC Sierra Elevation. Adding to other recently revealed bold, powerful models of the Sierra, the Elevation makes a statement in design, capability and advanced connectivity.

The Sierra Elevation, along with Denali, AT4 and SLT, is designed to meet the needs and preferences of discerning GMC customers. The next generation Sierras are built upon a prominent foundation of strong bodywork that incorporates chiseled fenders and a tall, powerful hood capped with a bigger and bolder grille than any Sierra prior. Elevation sets itself apart with distinct monochromatic door handles, bumpers and grille surround. The commanding design is amplified by black exterior accents, including the grille insert, tow hooks, side window trim and standard 20-inch aluminum wheels.

Like other modern GMC designs, advanced lighting technology plays a key role in shaping the 2019 Sierra Elevation. New high-intensity LED headlamps that incorporate C-shaped “light blade” signature lighting elements, LED fog lamps and C-shaped LED elements within the taillights are all standard.

“The 2019 Sierra Elevation conveys a youthful, athletic presence that demonstrates GMC’s tailored approach,” said Rich Latek, GMC marketing director. “With inherent truck capabilities and functionality, Elevation is able to take you off the beaten path along with your gear while standing out from the pack.”

The Sierra Elevation is based off the double cab model and is offered with two- or four-wheel-drive configurations. The next generation double cab has nearly 3 inches of additional rear-seat legroom compared to the current model and best-in-class double cab front head- and legroom (max.).

Elevated Capability
The Sierra Elevation leverages innovative technology and smart engineering to enhance capability and elevate driver confidence. With the Traction Select System and the twist of a dial, the driver can choose from preset modes designed for distinct purposes or conditions. Selecting one of these modes adjusts Sierra’s transmission shift points, throttle mapping and other systems to optimize performance for the situation at hand. Tour mode, for instance, is ideal for everyday driving, while Terrain mode configures the Sierra for venturing off the beaten path.

For those who frequently venture off-road, Sierra Elevation is available with the X31 Off Road package, which includes unique suspension tuning with Rancho shocks, locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control, protective underbody skidplates, heavy-duty air filter, dual exhaust system and a two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing topped off with all-terrain tires.

If trailering a camper or other gear is part of your adventure, the 2019 Sierra Elevation was designed from square one with trailering in mind. The available ProGrade Trailering System incorporates a number of innovative features, including an advanced available Trailering App, designed to help take the guesswork out of connecting and towing a trailer.

Purposeful Functionality

The Sierra Elevation was engineered to get you and your gear — be it kayaks, camping, mountain bikes, motorcycles or beyond — where you need to go, building on the foundation of the best-in-class cargo volume standard with every all-new Sierra: 89.1 cubic feet on standard box models. Thanks to more tie-downs, enhanced cargo lighting and larger rear corner steps, the task of loading and securing gear is easier than ever. A 120V outlet in the rear supplies power to equipment needed for a day at the campsite or on the trails.

Available accessory GearOn rails within the box allow for bike racks, kayak carriers and other accessories to be installed or adjusted quickly and easily. The rails’ integrated position makes cargo more accessible and frees up space in the rest of the box.

Next Generation Performance

The Sierra Elevation is available with a number of new engine and transmission configurations that deliver the perfect blend of power and capability.

Standard on the 2019 Sierra Elevation is an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.

The next generation 5.3-liter V-8 is also available on the Sierra Elevation, in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This improved version of the 5.3-liter V-8 utilizes a new Dynamic Fuel Management system that enables the engine to operate on one to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency.

Early in 2019, the Sierra Elevation will also be offered with a new 3.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-six-cylinder engine, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Advanced Connectivity

An 8-inch diagonal GMC Infotainment System that incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility* is standard on the Sierra Elevation, along with a six-speaker audio system. A premium GMC Infotainment System that incorporates a higher resolution touchscreen, advanced personalization features, voice recognition functionality and available in-vehicle apps is optional, as is a 7-speaker Bose premium audio system. USB Type A and Type C ports for charging mobile devices are standard.

The 2019 GMC Sierra Elevation will be available starting in the fall of 2018.

GMC Starts Year Strong with Popular SUVs

GMC Starts Year Strong with Popular SUVs

2018-05-02

DETROIT — The GMC brand is increasing SUV production following the strongest first quarter sales ever for the midsize Acadia and compact Terrain SUVs. GMC finished the first quarter with global SUV sales up 9.4 percent and Terrain sales alone up 38 percent. To meet increased demand, the company recently announced the addition of a third shift at its Springhill Assembly facility in Springhill, Tennessee, home of the GMC Acadia.

“Our redesigned Terrain and Acadia have found their stride in the market and our full-size Yukon and Yukon XL continue to lead the luxury full-size segment with premium appointments and features,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC. “This sales momentum will continue to be built on a strong product portfolio for our global markets.”

In the United States, the Terrain is attracting one of every two buyers who are new to the GMC brand. In an industry where midsize and compact SUVs account for more than one-third of all industry sales, GMC’s premium SUV lineup is well-positioned for future growth.

The GMC SUV family is complemented by the industry’s only premium lineup competing in all three truck segments: midsize, full-size and heavy-duty. The Canyon, Sierra and Sierra HD Denalis all experienced sales growth in 2017, helping the brand achieve one of the highest average transaction prices in the industry.

The recently unveiled next-generation Sierra Denali and the off-road-capable Sierra AT4 will launch later this year, further strengthening the brand’s premium truck lineup. These new trucks are distinguished by bold design, segment-first technology and industry-leading truck box capability and functionality. The Sierra AT4 launches the all-new AT4 brand, which will be seen on every vehicle in the GMC lineup in the next two years.

GMC Honors Military Heroes

GMC Honors Military Heroes

2018-04-27

DETROIT On April 28, General Motors and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will host the 6th annual Honoring our Heroes Gala to benefit the foundation’s Smart Home Program and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.

For the past several years, GMC has taken the lead for GM on the Smart Home Program in partnership with the Siller Foundation. “GMC’s Professional Grade identity is a perfect fit for these organizations because it is the same philosophy these veterans live by day in and day out,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “This mindset drives us to strengthen our efforts and help provide our veterans the state-of-the-art Smart Homes they need to achieve independent lives.”

General Motors has a strong history of supporting the military, and focuses on assisting veterans in three ways: with jobs, vehicles and homes.

Jobs: The unemployment rate for vets is 3.7 percent nationally, and, thanks to companies like GM, it is under 3.5 percent in Michigan. GM currently employs 5,000 vets and will hire another 500 this year.

Vehicles: GM has enhanced its military discount program to include First Responders.

Homes: GM supports two organizations, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan, to help place vets in Smart Homes so they can live the lives they deserve.

Through its Smart Home Program, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds custom-designed, mortgage-free homes that meet the needs of our nation’s most catastrophically injured service members. The foundation has committed to build a minimum of 200 smart homes for these veterans. The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan, an all-volunteer group of private citizens, provides essential financial assistance to Michigan’s post-September 11 wounded Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families.

Over the years, GM has raised more than $8 million toward supporting America’s veterans. General Motors employees, dealers, customers and enthusiasts give generously to these two organizations. Please join GMC, Customer Care and Aftersales and dealers in supporting our American heroes by participating in the online auction through April 28, and donating to the cause here.

General Motors will also host a live concert by Grammy-nominated country duo Big & Rich, accompanied by special guest Chris Janson, at 9:15 p.m. April 28 at Sound Board — Motor City Casino in Detroit. Tickets are $75 each and proceeds from the concert benefit the foundation’s Smart Home Program and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan. Please purchase tickets here.

When the call came, they stood up for us. Now, it’s our turn to stand up for them.

GMC

At GMC, professional grade means attention to detail. GMC’s family of premium SUVs and trucks employ a signature combination of bold design, precise craftsmanship and inherent capability to fit the active lifestyles of our customers.
