GMC is beefing up its luxury offerings with the release of the new Denali Ultimate trim level for several of its vehicle lines, including the GMC Sierra 1500 pickup, as well as the GMC Yukon full-size SUV. Which begs the question – what other GMC models need a Denali Ultimate trim? Perhaps the refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD would be a good candidate?
Such an offering would certainly make sense – after all, the 2023 GMC Sierra HD Denali is already available with the Denali Ultimate Package (RPO code PEC). For those that may not remember, the Denali Ultimate Package for the 2023 GMC Sierra HD Denali rounds up the content of the Technology Package (RPO code CWM), including the Rear Camera Mirror (RPO code DRZ) and the Multicolor 15-inch Diagonal Head-Up Display (RPO code UV6), as well as the power sunroof (RPO code CF5). So why not go full bore and offer an all-out Denali Ultimate trim level for the refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD?
To be sure, there’s definitely potential for a more luxurious Sierra HD Denali Ultimate trim level, the likes of which would rival the Ford Super Duty Limited and the Ram HD Limited. As for the features of this hypothetical Sierra HD Denali Ultimate, we can look to the existing Denali Ultimate trim levels for a few hints as to what it may include.
For example, the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate is equipped with exclusive styling cues inside and out, with a unique grille finished in Vader chrome, plus unique 22-inch wheels in a Low Gloss Black finish with machined accents. Vader chrome is also used for the GMC logo, and there’s unique front fender trim with a topographic map of Mount Denali. Inside, there’s Alpine Umber upholstery with full-grain leather and open-pore Paldao wood trim. The tech appointment includes standard GM Super Cruise with trailering, heated and ventilated 16-way power front seats with massage function, and a 12-speaker Bose Premium Series stereo with Centerpoint surround sound.
For now, GM will launch the 2024 GMC Sierra HD with a full model refresh, but whether or not the refresh will also include a new Denali Ultimate trim level remains to be seen.
