GM pulled the sheets on the refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD early last month, revealing revised exterior styling, a revamped interior space, powertrain updates, and the new GMC Sierra HD Denali Ultimate trim level. Critically, the new GMC Sierra HD Denali Ultimate will be equipped with exclusive 20-inch wheels, but what about models in the dual-rear-wheel configuration?
For those readers who may have missed it, the debut of the 2024 GMC Sierra HD included the announcement that the new Denali Ultimate trim level would be equipped with exclusive 20-inch Ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels with High Gloss black accents, among other unique exterior touches and upgrades. While these attractive 20-inch wheels look great on the single-rear-wheel Sierra HD, it begs the question – what about dual-rear-wheel models? Better yet, will the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500HD DRW even offer the Denali Ultimate trim level?
To find out, GM Authority reached out to GMC directly for an answer. According to a GMC spokesperson, the 2024 GMC Sierra 3500HD DRW will indeed offer the range-topping Denali Ultimate trim level. However, unlike single-rear-wheel Denali Ultimate models, the Sierra 3500HD DRW Denali Ultimate will not be equipped with the 20-inch Ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels with High Gloss black accents. Rather, Sierra 3500HD DRW Denali Ultimate models will be equipped with the same 18-inch Dually wheels found on the “standard” Denali trim level.
Even so, the Sierra 3500HD DRW Denali Ultimate is sure to be equipped with a range of upgrades that will underline the trim level’s range-topping status. The cabin space, for example, will feature exclusive Alpine Umber upholstery with full-grain leather appointments and open-pore Paldao wood, as well as all-new 16-way power-adjustable and massaging seats, a 12-speaker Bose stereo, 15-inch head-up display, and a power sunroof, among other highlights.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Sierra HD is once again available with two engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, rated at 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, as well as the optional 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, which is now uprated to 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque. Look for the 2024 GMC Sierra HD to arrive in dealers in Q1 of the 2023 calendar year.
