2019 GMC Sierra Denali And The Denali Ultimate Package: Feature Spotlight16
The 2019 Sierra Denali is an innovative pickup truck that takes GMC’s Like a Pro motto (neé Professional Grade) to new heights. But in case the “regular” 2019 Sierra Denali is not Pro enough for you, the new Denali Ultimate Package (RPO code PEC) puts the icing on the cake for the ultimate expression of the Denali experience by shoehorning nearly every option into the truck.
Under the hood, the Denali Ultimate Package includes the most powerful gas engine available for the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 – the 6.2L V8 L87 EcoTec3 engine mated to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. That’s as great a starting point as any.
Features & Equipment
From there, the Denali Ultimate Package adds the following two packages:
- Technology Package, which includes:
- HD Surround Vision
- Rear Camera Mirror
- Multi-color 3×7-inch Head-Up Display
- Driver Alert Package II, which includes:
- Forward Collision Alert
- Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
- Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking
- Pedestrian Detection
- IntelliBeam headlamps
- Following Distance Indicator
- Driver Alert Package I, which includes:
- Front and Rear Park Assist
- Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
In addition, the Denali Ultimate Package also adds the following features:
- GMC MultiPro Power Steps
- Trailer Tire Pressure Monitor System
- 22-inch polished aluminum wheels
- 275/50R22SL all-season blackwall tires
Probably the most noticeable part of the Sierra Denali Ultimate Package are the 22-inch polished aluminum wheels wrapped in 275/50R22SL all-season blackwall tires. The large rims don’t look gaudy, but instead have a very technical appearance that looks just at home on the truck. Wheel locks are included, which makes sense for a set of wheels this good-looking.
It’s worth noting that the wheels, which are pictured below and carry RPO Code Q7L, are the only ones available with the Denali Ultimate Package on the Sierra, meaning that the package can not be ordered with any other wheels.
Another feature of the Denali Ultimate Package worthy of attention is the Trailer Tire Pressure Monitor System (RPO Code PTT). The system consists of a module and a set of four sensors. Notably, GM states that the system must be ordered with the vehicle and installed by the factory. From there, the tire pressure sensors for the trailer are shipped with the truck and the customer is responsible for installing the sensors on the trailer. Additional or replacement sensors are available as a separately-sold accessory.
GMC has yet to release official pricing details for the all-new 2019 Sierra, so we do not know how much the package will cost. The package is a $7,525 option discounted by GMC to $6,775 on the outgoing K2 platform Sierra Denali 1500. However, the last-generation model includes less features; for instance, it does not have the Rear Camera Mirror or the Trailer Tire Pressure Sensors. As such, we assume that the Denali Ultimate Package will be more costly on the all-new T1 platform model.
Update: the Denali Ultimate package on the 2019 Sierra Denali is a $5,850 option, not including the 6.2L V8 L87 engine, which is another $2,495. However, GMC returns $500 of the price as part of an equipment group discount. So, the total price of the package is $7,845.

That’s a great looker!
Those polished 22 inch rims just set it off perfectly!
I’ll have mine with limousine tints please 🙂
It’s a great looking truck, it’s just too bad there isn’t a range topping engine for Denali and High Country. Twin turbo V8 with 500hp 550lb-ft would be a great engine for these trucks
Forget the turo’s put a Magnuson TVS1900 or 2300 on it and you will get better overall performance from the line thru the gears.
How about a TTV6 that meets or exceed the Ford Raptor V6.
Say around 460HP and 550 TQ.
That’s almost unrealistic torque to ask for and still have a nice flat curve. And on paper (which buyers care about) is the too close power as the 6.2. And they have nothing right now that can do that, they do however have a 4.2 TT V8 ready to roll out with peak torque coming in at just 2000rpm and carried through to 5200rpm
That may be true on the torque but if the Raptor can make 510 from the 3.5 the 3.6 should be able to meet or exceed that. Idid notice the 3.6 in the ATS V made 464 HP but considerable less torque than the raptor engine. Don’t know the curve of eighter Engine.
Leave the 6.2L in there and just put a Magnuson SuperCharger on it. You will get around 600HP & Torque with the fuel mileage to boot.
Hi Walter – where could I go for buying this and have this devise installed. would this supper charger cause worse gas milage. and void warranty ?? I live in NY…
Great idea. Need more follow up. Sources. Costs. Warranty ramifications. Engine longevity, etc.
Should be close to building them. I have seen over 20 2019 1/2 ton trucks running around Ft Wayne in the past 2 weeks for testing
Would be nice if the could be on the market sometime during the third quarter instead of waiting until the fourth quarter.
I passed a 2019 Sierra AT4 in Iowa. I must say it was pretty ugly. Looked like 12 inch tires on a whale.
I am a 2015 Sierra All Terrain owner and I must say I am extremely disappointed in the new models.
The Denali “Ultimate” package with a sunroof? The “Ultimate” package should have had the option of a Panoramic roof to give more distinction from the other packages.
I got a 2018 Sierra Denali with the 6.2L and have been really pleased with the overall performance and ride. Even after lowering it and putting 22″ rims. I really like the features of the 2019 minus the Eco Stop and AFM. Just wish GM would have put the shifter in the console/floor like the ford trucks or at least give that as an option.
I sure hope they also updated the intrument cluster to give us more customization like the Fords. I have always been a GM truck person but they almost lost out to the Ford 150/Raptor because of the features Ford has paid attention too.
What about adaptive cruise? If it’s not available I won’t be buying a GMC
I just purchased a used 2019 sierra Denali.
I love the truck. One question, if anyone can answer it.
On my info screen I have the settings (usual), but, I do not
have “Vehicle” as an item to get me to “Collision/Detection Systems”
Am I missing something, or , is this an option I don’t or can not access?
My Denali is/has the ultimate package.
