At first you will confuse the new GMC Sierra series with the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500HD! However, GMC seem to be placing the whole game a notch higher with the 2016 GMC Denali 3500HD. The new LED lighting plus its masculine body give it a new and refined look. 2016 Denali is specially built to allow air circulation in the engine compartment and inside the car.
Its wheels offer inlaid flares through their round shape and size. Well, let me take you on the package of the GMC truck and SUV division!

However, GMC are now changing the rules by redesigning the Sierra to produce power, great performance and give a feeling of comfort too!

The first choice is a 5.3 litre engine with a staggering 355 Horsepower and 38.3 lb-ft of torques. On the other hand, you can have the 6.2 litre V8 with 420 horsepower and 45o lb-ft of torque.
