The one-ton 2011 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD dually made its world debut today at the PickupTrucks.com Heavy Duty Shootout in Michigan.
You'll have to wait until Aug. 16 to find out how the big Denali performed against its peers — it's one of nine trucks we're comparing — but we've got the first photos to share with you now.
What does checking the Denali option box buy you? Sierra Denali HDs receive a unique four-bar chrome grille with body-colored bumpers, chrome door handles, chrome accents and 18- or 20-inch polished forged aluminum wheels. Inside, you get Denali-specific brushed aluminum trim, power-adjustable pedals, a Bose premium surround audio system and 12-way power seats. Along with an optional heated steering wheel, heated and cooled leather-appointed seating is available. The exterior will be offered in three colors: black, Stealth Gray and white.
Denali trim is available in the 3500 Series for both single-rear-wheel and dually versions in two-wheel and four-wheel drive. The 3500 series is also available in standard (6-foot 6-inches) and dually long box (8-foot) versions.
