2018 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 first drive review: GMC does luxury without flamboyance in the confidently By DigitalTrends

GMC’s upscale Denali is a great choice for sophisticated truck buyers.

Trim levels and features:
The Denali edition is the top trim of any GMC vehicle, and when you select Denali, you’re already getting the bulk of the desirable features and add-ons from the basic GMC vehicle, plus a few features unique to Denali. When you start with the Denali 1500, you avoid the base 4.3-liter V6 engine and go straight to the 5.3-liter V8. You have your choice of a short 69.33-inch bed or the longer 78.87-inch bed. You also get the full four-door Crew Cab and your choice of 2WD or 4WD.

Technology overview
Buying the Sierra Denali gets you GM’s best tech package. The Denali starts with an 8-inch touchscreen monitor with GPS navigation, AM/FM/Satellite radio, Bluetooth, and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The touchscreen system responds to all standard tablet gestures, so you can pinch and swipe and do all the things. You can also use voice control if you want to. GMC considers Denali more of a luxury sub-brand than a trim level. Like all GM products, you can get yourself a 4G data plan for the Sierra. Data service comes from AT&T and you get three months free when you buy the truck. You can use that data service to create a Wi-Fi zone in the truck. Denali trim includes a standard Bose audio system that sounds great. The Denali trim also gets you Qi wireless phone charging, if your phone supports that tech. The iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X all support Qi charging.

Interior fit and finish
When it comes to a quality interior, GMC really leads the way. The Denali offers elegance rather than flamboyance, so you won’t find much bling. You will find top quality touch surfaces, like real wood grain, and fine leather. Everything that’s supposed to be heated is warm, and you can dial up ventilated seats on hot days, too. The active noise cancellation available with the Denali Ultimate Package makes the Sierra quiet on the highway, even when you’re towing. Finally, the Denali includes a power sliding rear window for convenient bed access.

Overall, the Sierra Denali will deliver a truly enjoyable pickup truck driving experience. It’s powerful, comfortable, quiet, and as responsive as a big truck can be.

Safety
NHTSA gives the 2018 GMC Sierra a five-star safety rating. The Denali line offers all available safety features as standard equipment. Denali trucks come with StabiliTrak stability control as well as trailer sway control and hill starting assist. A basic rear-view camera is included on all Denali trucks.

2018 Sierra Denali 1500 4WD By Nigel Atkinson - April 27, 2018

Bold and brash might be a good way to describe the 2018 Sierra Denali 1500 4WD Crew Cab we were sent by GM, other words I could use are enormous, surprisingly fast and a super smooth ride, which pretty much sums up GM’s luxury pickup truck. It was so big I couldn’t fit it in my garage even when I moved the bikes out of the way, so it had to slum it in the drive for a week. That didn’t seem to take any of the shine off the Dark Slate Metallic paint which prompted a fellow customer at the gas station to say that it looks like I keep that truck garaged. Little did they know….

My tester came with the Ultimate Denali Package which includes a 6.2-liter Ecotec engine, 22-inch wheels, a power sunroof, power steps and a trailer brake controller. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 420 hp @ 5,600 rpm and 460 lb-ft @ 4,100 rpm, through an 8-speed automatic. This combo makes for a rapid truck indeed, with 0-60 coming up in 5.6 seconds, one of the fastest full-size trucks I’ve driven.

Of course, with speed comes fuel usage and those with a heavy right foot, like me, will average around 15.7 mpg. The good news is GM uses cylinder deactivation technology, in both the V-6 and V-8 small block engines. The system works by using electrically controlled valve lifters to turn off half the cylinders in the V-8 and two cylinders in the V-6 engine. It offers up to a 5 percent fuel economy gain. If you toggle to the fuel range indicator section between the driver gauges you can see when you are in V8 or V4 mode. On a longer trip (65 miles) I averaged 17 mpg so it works, but it will never be an economy vehicle.
