  • 1. GMC Denali You can quit asking yourself why domestic car manufacturers insist on building high-dollar trucks optioned up like 7-Series Bimmers. Customers can’t get enough of these. According to GM, some 20 percent of GMC trucks roll off the lot with Denali badges, as well as the company says that craze isn’t slowing down. The 2014 gmc denali requires the excellent fresh Sierra and provides more polish (actually and figuratively), plusher appointments, as well as the expected smattering associated with tech toys. Throw in the new, recommended 6.2-liter V8, as well as you’ve got any dashing workhorse. A minimum of, that’s the notion. What are the Denali badging actually gets you is the effortlessly identifiable bright fine mesh Denali grille, body color bumpers, and also hefty 20-inch chrome wheels. Aside from a polished stainless metal exhaust tip, right now there’s little else to differentiate the Denali from the actual truck’s less pricey siblings. Strangely, the Denali surcharge doesn’t save you from the truck’s less-than-premium plastic fender flames. Inside, the front buckets are appropriately comfortable, but the particular hides aren’t quite up to snuff compared to what’s available from the actual Ford F-150 King Ranch or the Ram 1500 Laramie Long Automobile horn. Both of people trucks offer buyers the sort of thick, soft leather you’d expect to find on a cigar-parlor armchair. The Sierra Denali, meanwhile, tends to make due with seat covers that appear to have been conned from Buick’s pre-bankruptcy stock. To GMC’s credit, the Denali forgoes the attempting-too-hard Conway Twitty barbwire and boots motif found in the aforementioned high-buck Ford and Ram. The instrument cluster is very well executed. The gmc denali receives a 4.2-inch driver- configurable display that will display a wide selection of pertinent information. That’s handy, responsive and straightforward to use. I wish I could say the same for the Intellilink infotainment system. While the display’s high-resolution graphics are gorgeous, response times are on the actual slow side, which may be unnecessarily distracting. That’s light years better compared to Ford’s touchscreen rig, but Ram’s Uconnect system still wins the day. The best information is hidden underhood. GM’s new, optional 6.2-liter V8 engine cranks out a heady 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and is actually bolted to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Regardless of being two-gears short of the particular Ram 1500, the transmission aids the big V8 in the GMC yield an EPA-estimated 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway in two-wheel- generate guise. Expect individuals numbers to take a dip with 4WD, although.
