DETROIT — When it arrives this fall, the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali pickup will offer an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine with the most power and towing capacity in the full-size truck category, GM said on Wednesday.
The latest EcoTec3 engine features direct injection, active fuel management and variable valve timing, and also will be available this fall on the 2014 Sierra SLT. The 6.2 V8 has a preliminary rating of 420 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Final SAE figures will be released later this year.
The standard engine in the new Sierra Denali is a 355-hp 5.3-liter V8.
2014 GMC Sierra Denali pricing has not been announced.
The redesigned 2014 Sierra Denali with the optional 6.2 V8 will have a best-in-class trailer towing capacity of up to 12,000 pounds.
The Sierra Denali gets such premium exterior design cues as a signature chrome grille, 20-inch chrome wheels, polished stainless-steel exhaust tip and body-color front and rear bumpers.
Interior features on the 2014 Sierra Denali include a Bose audio system, heated-and-cooled leather front bucket seats, heated steering wheel and aluminum trim. The truck also comes with an 8-inch customizable driver display and an 8-inch color touch navigation radio.
GMC is offering an optional Z71 Off-Road package on 4WD Sierra Denalis, as well as a Drive Alert package that bundles lane departure warning, forward collision alert and safety alert seat. Rear-seat entertainment and sunroof are stand-alone options.
