2024 GMC Sierra HD Denali: First Real-World Photos24
GM unveiled the fully refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD in October, pulling the sheets on a long list of changes and updates for the heavy-duty pickup. Now, we’re getting our first look at the refreshed 2024 GMC Sierra HD Denali out in the real world with the following GM Authority photos.
For those readers who may be unaware, the 2024 GMC Sierra HD Denali is now the penultimate trim level in the lineup, slotting in below the new-for-2024 range-topping Denali Ultimate with regard to the trim level cadence. This particular 2500 HD model presents the Crew Cab / Short Bed SRW body style covered in White Frost Tricoat paint (paint code G1W), giving it a crisp, clean look in conjunction with the black trim bits and chrome detailing.
Up front, we spot the 2024 GMC Sierra HD Denali’s reworked grille design, which adorns the revised fascia with a polished finish. The headlights were also restyled for the 2024 model year, and now incorporate an angled L-shaped design for the lighting signature, as opposed to the C-shaped signature seen on Sierra HD models prior to the refresh. The lower bumper was reworked as well, and now incorporates a flatter, straighter layout, plus new lower lighting elements. The tow hooks and lower styling bits continue the chrome theme.
Moving into the flanks, we find power-adjustable and power folding / extending vertical trailering mirrors (RPO code DZC), which are matched with chrome mirror caps (RPO code DP9) to complement the rest of the polished bits on the body. Lower in profile, we find chromed tubular 6-inch rectangular cab length assist steps (RPO code BVQ), while the door handles are also done in chrome (RPO code W20). Sitting in the corners is a set of new-for-2024 20-inch Ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels.
As for the bits we can’t see, the 2024 GMC Sierra HD is equipped with the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine as standard, as well as the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, the latter of which was uprated with the refresh and now produces a maximum of 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque. Both engines now connect to the Allison-branded 10-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the GM six-speed automatic mated to the gasoline-powered L8T engine prior to the refresh.
Look for the 2024 GMC Sierra HD to hit production in Q1 of the 2023 calendar year.

Where’s the cab lights and sun roof? After all, it’s a Denali…..
Welcome to the FJB era. More $ for less
Love the stories but wish you could reveal estimated pricing on all vehicles.
Certainly hoping that the other trim levels get some better looking wheels options.
Wheels got to go. Look like hubcaps.
Interesting… $90,000 guessing for a 2500 Denali HD, and roof lights nor power door steps are standard items. The rims are ugly, and I’m not sure that I like the vertical trim pieces over the fog lights. the exhaust could have a more impressive tip similar to Ford too. The video screen appears smaller than Ford too. Ford also has the panoramic sunroof, but still a $90,000 Denali HD does not. GM, you’re making it hard for me to justify spending $90,000 on one of your trucks. Just my opinion
Can’t say I could ever justify spending $90k for a truck. Many of the added features of a Denali do nothing for me. In fact, I often think some of the lower trim levels actually have more curb appeal. Sometimes these things just get too gaudy .
Wheels are very ugly so far hope they got better
I guess the grill would grow on me. For now I’ll keep my 2023
Hideous. They keep getting uglier and uglier. It is not simetrical. Who do they have designing these trucks, 3rd graders? I’ve been a GM guy all my life but no more. My 2015 2500 is the last one. I now have a Fors F250 which is a beautiful truck. Stop trying to please stock holders versus customers.
Super Duties are hideous lmao
Wheels are very ugly so far hope they got better
Absolutely ugly wheels!!!!!!!!!!! GM’s way of making you spend more money on better wheels. Just like they force you to have Onstar for 3 years.
Wow, the GM designer for this model needs some extra inspiration, the truck has ugly written all over it !
The rims look terrible ! what happened to clearance lights and sun roof
The wheels look CHEAP!!
I was going to get a 2024 GMC Denali HD if it doesn’t get any better than that.
I’ll keep my 2020 Denali.
I’m not sure why they think everyone likes the black style wheels.
GM GET YOUR HEAD OUT!!
Iack…Dès gelaste GM vos ingénieurs ne sont plus à la TÊTE, ils jousent avec des Tonka’s Jouet’s… Il n’est pas mentionné au sujet des Puces ou Ship’s… Est-ce que GM ont mis les Ship’s dans leurs véhicules… Pas de Ship’s pas de véhicule… J’ai un High Country 2018 avec un 6.2 litres Crew Cab et je v’ais le gardé son modèle est beaucoup plus BEAU que votre 2024 Donali.. BOU GM… 🙁
No super cruise while towing. That is a deal breaker for me. Will wait for 2025. Hope needed upgrades are made.
I feel the opposite….. Never Ever would trust it with or without trailering.
The grill in that truck looks horrible, I have a 3500 Denali diesel now.guess never buy another looking like that.
What they need to complete eliminate in the rear seat is the raised floor in the middle, they did a lot of it but it should be completely flat, in half tons and HDs like Ford did a long, long time ago.
Why can’t they tell us what the color options are on their website. Chevy shows them on their 2024 Silverado. Both trucks are GM right? So what’s the big secret
Octagonal wheel wells?….why????
please send me the date i can go to order the 2024 pickup
