2011 GMC Sierra Denali Heavy Duty

I like it!



Until now, the GMC Sierra Denali has only been available as a luxury light-duty pickup with a 6.2-liter V-8 gasoline engine. But at the 2007 SEMA Show, GMC showed off a diesel-powered Heavy Duty Denali concept, strongly suggesting that the 'Professional Grade' brand wanted to go head-to-head with Ford’s top-of-the-line King Ranch Super Duty.

Judging from the latest spy photo, it looks like GM is about to make its Denali HD concept a reality.

Our spies have just caught this 2011 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickup out and about, trimmed in Denali livery. It has a unique four-bar chrome perforated grille, instead of the three-bar grille we’ve seen in other Sierra test trucks. It also sports chrome trim, door handles and wheels – Denali hallmarks. Look even closer and you’ll see the bell of a large two-piece venturi tailpipe (which helps cool high exhaust temperatures) indicating that there’s a next-generation 6.6-liter "LML" Duramax V-8 under its hood. The uncamouflaged hood features new reverse-power-dome styling with prominent center mounted louvers.

GM's 2011 HD pickups are also expected to ride on an all new chassis and start production in the first half of 2010.

Bout time someone tried to compete with Ford's offerings above the Lariat. As soon as GMC throws this out there, Ford will offer the Platinum interiors like what is on the current F-150's and trump everyone again!

That's speculative at best.

I like the luxury trucks, but I'm still focused on drivetrain. Looks comes second.

The intelligence of the average GM HD owner never ceases to amaze me. I mean, who cares about "platinum" when you're still peddling a 5 speed trans and a 10.5" rear?
