Between the information for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country and the accidently leaked picture on GMC's consumer site, it didn't take much imagination to envision what the 2014 GMC Sierra Denali would be like. But here it is. Going on sale this fall, the 2014 Sierra Denali will continue to be the most luxurious pickup truck in the General Motors portfolio, while getting more power and technology than ever before.

Like previous models, the 2014 Sierra Denali stands out from lower Sierra models with a big cheese-grater chrome grille, 20-inch chrome wheels and body-color bumpers. Inside, the Denali gets plenty of leather with contrasting stitching, but this is where GMC really steps up from the Silverado High Country with real aluminum trim and a new customizable eight-inch driver display in the gauge cluster. Standard features will include heated and cooled front bucket seats, the Intellilink infotainment system with Bose audio, while the options list offers a Driver Alert Package (with forward collision alert and lane departure warning), a rear-seat entertainment system and a Z71 Off-Road Package.

As for power, the standard engine will be the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with its 355 horsepower, and the optional engine will be the new 6.2-liter V8. Although official power figures for the bigger engine aren't in yet, GM is finally putting some estimates on paper expecting around 420 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque to go with a 12,000-pound towing capacity. The new Sierra Denali will be available in either two- or four-wheel drive. Scroll down for more details listed in the official press release.

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 DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. "It leaves no boxes unchecked for those owners looking for the ultimate expression of 'Professional Grade.'"

A 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 is standard for the 2014 Sierra Denali. It produces 355 horsepower and offers better EPA-estimated fuel economy (23 mpg highway on 2WD models) than any V-8 or turbocharged V-6 pickup on the market.

Sierra Denali will be available with two option packages, including a Z71 Off-Road Package (4WD only) with monotube Rancho shocks, Hill Descent Control and transfer case shield, and a Driver Alert Package that includes Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and patented Safety Alert Seat Technology.

Standalone options include the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, a sunroof and Rear Seat Entertainment.

GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's healthiest brands. Innovation and engineering excellence is built into all GMC vehicles and the brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. The 2014 Sierra half-ton pickup boasts all-new powertrains and design, and the Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most capable and powerful trucks ever built by GMC. Every retail GMC model, including Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs, is now available in Denali luxury trim.

      I always thought the Sierra Denali was full-time AWD, but its not. Maybe that's just the Yukon Denali. Thumbs up to the 5-mode transfer case (assuming there's a way to get to neutral)!

        The current and previous Sierra Denali's did have a full-time AWD system, which differentiated itself from the rest of the GM trucks (and just about any other truck other than the Honda Ridgeline). Looks like they did away with it.

        That's the way the entire truck market is going. More and more trucks sold are double cabs/crew cabs, and increasingly personal use focused with luxury amenities. Gone is the day of the regular cab, base, work truck.

          because he can't afford it... people tend to knock on the things we can't/don't have. bottom line: there's a market for a $50,000 + truck. period.

          Better than the Sierra, IMHO. I still get a chuckle out of the quad HIDs. It's asinine and a waste of money. But I suppose it sticks with 'tradition' (which GMC didn't have a problem leaving behind).

      Typical GM style, dead last in technology and style. Not to mention every new "year" is just a chrome swapped reiteration of last year. I guess 2008 owners can feel confident their trucks are still current GM stylish...

      Gotta love the haters. I think it is awesome for what it is, a luxury truck. Its not suppose to be a work truck. Its for towing nice things, and the occasional run to the get some mulch. But what am I saying, people are going to bash it, just because its GM. Just wish I could afford it.

        It\'s funny how people get so worked up about products. \"this truck is so stupid because it\'s luxurious\" Well if people weren\'t buying them, then GM wouldn\'t build them.

          Ford has obviously demonstrated that there is a demand for this type of truck. Regardless of one's personal opinion, these guys are out there to make money and these trucks haul in the largest profits, so you can't fault GM for that.

      Nothing says classy like a LED strip on your pickup truck's headlights.

        Not sure why you got down-voted, but those headlights look like an ebay special. One strip on the bottom, fine, but two is just over doing it. The previous gen Sierra Denali looks better.

      I might be in the minority here, but I just can't get over how ugly the new twins are both inside and out. I greatly prefer the aesthetics of the outgoing model over the new one.

        The Sierra actually looks very good out on the road.

        So? You park at malls too. I see plenty of BMWs, Audis, and Corvettes at my local shopping center, so why single out a truck?
