2014 Sierra Denali Pairs High-Tech Luxury and Capability
Available 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 will be most powerful pickup truck engine
on the market
DETROIT An all-new 2014 Sierra 1500 Denali full-size pickup arrives
this fall with an available 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 that will produce an
estimated 420 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, the most power and
torque of any light duty truck engine.
Final SAE-rated power and torque numbers will be available later this
year. Now entering its third generation, the Sierra Denali is the most
luxurious and technologically advanced GMC half-ton pickup.
Sierra's 6.2L V-8 will also be available for Sierra SLT models this
fall. With this engine, the Sierra is expected to have a class-leading
maximum trailering capacity of 12,000 pounds. Like every 2014 Sierra,
it offers more power and higher expected efficiency than its
predecessor thanks to a trio of technologies including direct
injection, active fuel management and variable valve timing.
Design cues for the 2014 Sierra Denali follow the formula that
attracted two-in-10 GMC buyers to Denali vehicles last year. On the
exterior, the truck has a signature Denali chrome grille, unique
20-inch chrome wheels, unique interior decorative trim, a polished
stainless steel exhaust outlet and body-color front and rear bumpers.
Denali-specific interior details include script on the bright door
sills and embossed into the front seats and real aluminum trim.
Sierra Denali's high-tech interior also features an exclusive
eight-inch Customizable Driver Display that can show relevant
settings, audio and navigation information in the instrument panel.
Sierra Denali's standard eight-inch Color Touch navigation radio with
Intellilink, located above the center console, serves as the main hub
for Bluetooth-connected phones and portable devices connected through
five standard USB ports.
Other features standard on Sierra Denali include projector-style
headlamps with LED signature daytime running lights, a Bose audio
system, heated and cooled leather front bucket seats, a heated
steering wheel, front and rear park assist and a power sliding rear
window with defogger.
"The 2014 Sierra Denali has a combination of performance,
capability and luxury that no other pickup can match," said Tony
