An aftermarket wheel shop in the Mexican city of Culiacán has shared photos of a custom GMC Sierra Denali that it recently completed for a customer – but the truck in question is no standard Sierra Denali.
While General Motors discontinued the Regular Cab version of the GMC Sierra in the United States and Canada, it still sells the two-door truck in certain foreign markets. In Mexico, the GMC Sierra can be ordered in a Regular Cab body style, but it’s only available in a single base-level trim. It seems as though this customer approached the shop, JC Wheels, and asked them to convert his Regular Cab work truck into a full-blown Denali – in turn creating what is probably the world’s only T1-generation GMC Sierra Denali Regular Cab.
This custom truck has a chrome mesh Denali grille, chrome mirror caps, chrome side assist steps, Denali badging and the chrome 22-inch factory Denali wheels. The Denali conversion probably would have been quite pricy to execute, as it would have required JC Wheels to either have a donor truck for the Denali parts, or to order them from a GM dealership – neither of which seem like very affordable options.

We’d be even more impressed if this truck had Denali-style interior add-ons as well, such as heated and ventilated leather seats, perforated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a Bose premium audio system. Unfortunately, JC Wheels didn’t share photos of the interior, so we’re not sure if this truck has also received a Denali-style cabin overhaul, or if it’s still standard work truck fare inside.
While we realize Regular Cab trucks like this sell in very small numbers in the United States, it’s hard to be a bit jealous seeing GM continue to offer Regular Cab pickups in places like Mexico and the Middle East. With that said, would you buy a Regular Cab version of the GMC Sierra Denali if GM offered it in the U.S. or Canada? Let us know by voting or commenting below, readers.
