According to GMC executives, the 2017 Sierra Denali Ultimate is going to offer its owners unparalleled capability and efficiency, coupled with refinement and maneuverability. But then again, General Motors has made a lot of promises over the years, and not all have been fulfilled.
However, this might be one of those “sorry I doubted you” moments, as this truck actually delivers on its promises and the “Ultimate” part of its name. This is one of the best trucks that bears the GMC tag.
For those of you who are new to this geography thing, Mount Denali is the highest point in all of North America – the entire continent north of the Andes. And that says something.

Exterior of Sierra Denali Ultimate
On the outside, the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate is going to feature lots of chrome, mostly in the grille and the fog lamp bezels, and lots of aluminum, mostly in the wheels and the chassis.
It will come in half a dozen different colors, but all of them will have in common a bunch of features, including a shimmery exhaust tip made of chrome and stainless steel, and a spray-on bed liner to name a few. LED headlamps and tail lamps are also updated and accounted for.

Hated seats are a must, and so is the air conditioning system of the latest generation. Infotainment is top notch, although navigation is optional and highly recommendable. The interior is mostly in jet black nuances, and the Denali logo dominates the sill plates and floor mats.

Among these technologies are those pertaining to the Eco Tec3, which enable valve timing, direct fuel injection and active fuel management. The new Sierra Denali will feature greatly improved fuel efficiency as well, especially compared to the earlier models.
