2021 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD

Although the current generation of GM’s HD models is very fresh, it looks like we are about to see some pretty big changes in the next year. According to the latest reports, all Sierra models, including the 2021 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD, will get a completely new interior.

Other than that, we expect to see no bigger changes, so the next-year model should carry on with the same design and specs. This includes the powertrain department as well. Given the big updates, there is a big chance to see the new model a little bit earlier than usual.

Pros:

  • Distinctive styling details
  • Powerful engines
  • Strong towing capabilities
  • Loads of standard equipment

Cons:

  • Some rivals look more opulent
  • High price tag

Exterior

When it comes to the exterior design, we don’t expect to see any particular change for the next year. The 2021 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD should carry on with the same design, which has been introduced recently. There is a new styling, but the Denali trims also come with additional details.

Of course, the most notable is a different grille, as well as unique wheels and several more details. The thing that is also easy to notice on this truck is a lot of chrome all around the vehicle. As we are talking about a range-topping version in the model’s lineup, it seems logical that the Crew Cab is the only body style in the offer.

Interior

This is where we expect big novelties. The new generation came with the cabin that looks pretty much the same as the previous generations. The company was in a rush to launch the new model, so there wasn’t enough time for a new cabin.

Even the exclusive details of Denali trim can’t hide this. Therefore, the 2021 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD will come with a completely new cabin layout, with a much better overall quality, as well as with completely new aesthetics.

Engine

Things under the hood are about to remain the same. The 2021 GMC Denali 3500HD will carry on with two familiar engines in the offer. There is a new 6.6-liter V8 gasoline engine, which is good for about 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque.

Still, most drivers would probably prefer a capable 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel, which is good for about 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, which provides significantly better performances in terms of towing, as the new generation is finally on par in this aspect with biggest rivals, such as Ram 3500 and Ford F-350.

2021 GMC Denali 3500HD Release Date and Price

There is a big chance to see 2021 GMC Denali 3500HD a little bit earlier than usual, due to big interior updates. Most likely, the new model will hit the market in the third half of the next year. When it comes to the price, base models will go around $65,000.
