In terms of the exterior design, the 2021 GMC 1500 Sierra Denali probably won’t feature too many changes. As we’ve just mentioned, the best we could see are new color options. Other than that, we will see a familiar design, which is has been introduced last year.

Of course, the Denali comes with several distinctive details compared to the base version. There are unique grille design, exclusive wheels and color options, as well as a lot of chrome.

On the inside, we probably won’t see too many changes on the dashboard. Once again, we will see exclusive color schemes in the offer, as well as a unique steering wheel design. The overall quality is impressive and this feels more luxurious than some other rivals in the class, including a much more expensive Ford F-150 Limited.

Other than that, the 2021 GMC 1500 Sierra Denali will be all about a full load of standard features. The current model already comes with a full load of standard equipment. This particularly refers safety features, as the list of standard equipment includes things like parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist.
