Frankly, we're surprised that this is only a concept, as the idea is very simple: take the heavy-duty GMC Sierra, glitz up the outside, luxe up the interior, and slap the Denali surcharge badge on the doors. Powered by the 6.6L Duramax capable of yanking Madison Square Garden off its foundation, the Sierra HD Denali would be the perfect tool for the well-heeled in need of hauling ability. After all, a hedge fund manager buying a Cigarette 38 Top Gun GT with his bonus money is gonna need a proper tow vehicle to bring it to the marina, right?

Follow the jump for full details on the concept.
