GMC Sierra 1500 Denali… Not Just a Pickup!

A regular listener called me recently for help upgrading to a new GMC Sierra 1500 4WD Crew Cab Denali, from a previous GMC pick-up truck I advised him to try … though he had been a lifetime Ford F-150 guy.

Despite the need for some “right price” wrangling, saving him from a nearly universal $5K premium demand from dealers, the listener is happily ensconced in his new $89,500 rig.

When the 2024 GMC Sierra Denali came up on my test drive list … I came to understand why this truck is so good. My friend is a construction boss doing high-end custom residential builds and premium renovations, spending hours daily driving from site to site, using the truck as his mobile office.

And for this the GMC Sierra Denali is indeed an ultimate convenience and really a necessity. It’s a workhorse with a 3 liter turbo Duramax 6 Cylinder Diesel and 10 speed auto trans, with 305 horsepower and 8900 lb of towing capacity. And the Denali interior is so roomy and comfortable, with comprehensive tech including autonomous Super Cruise… it had this old trucker smiling from ear-to-ear.
