GMC just updated the Sierra HD for the 2024 model year. The full-size pickup now comes with a new exterior design, better quality interiors and an updated transmission. It also becomes more capable with increased power for the 6.6-litre Duramax diesel engine. Aside from all that, the 2024 GMC Sierra HD also adds two trims to its model lineup with this update: the off-road capable AT4 and the ultra-luxurious Denali Ultimate. In addition to some exclusive exterior details, the Denali Ultimate brings a new level of luxury to the Sierra HD’s cabin. Let’s take a closer look at what it has to offer.
This truck will cocoon you in ultimate luxury
The new Sierra HD’s overall cabin layout is much cleaner than the outgoing model. As a result, it’s a significant upgrade, not only in terms of quality, but also aesthetically. The Denali Ultimate trim adds to this further with better quality materials and color options. Additionally, GMC says it “reaches new heights of premium luxury and comfort” thanks to its Alpine Umber interior. For example, the Sierra Denali Ultimate comes with full-grain leather door panels and etched stainless steel speaker grilles.
Not only this, but it gets the same material on its front and rear seats. To make sure they know they’re sitting in this exclusive Sierra HD trim, it comes with Denali Ultimate branding on the front seatbacks and center console lid. If that’s not enough, the Sierra Denali Ultimate also comes with open-pore Paldao wood inserts across the interior. The dark finish of this wood, along with its grain, gives the cabin of this truck a unique look. It also comes with a premium micro-suede headliner, visor and A- and B-pillars. On the other hand, the handles of the A and B pillars are wrapped in leather.
Like the interior, the Sierra Denali Ultimate’s exterior also has some exclusive features to set it apart from the rest of the lineup of this truck. It gets a unique grille design, and the GMC logo is finished in Vader chrome. There are also 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with gloss black accents exclusive to this trim. It also comes with an easter egg on its fender in the form of a badge depicting the topography of Mount Denali.
The 2024 Sierra Denali Ultimate gets a host of exclusive features
In addition to better quality materials, the Sierra Denali Ultimate also gets several exclusive features that set it apart from the SLE and SLT trims. For example, the front seats get a 15-way power adjustment and notification function. In addition, it comes with a 12-speaker Bose audio system with Centerpoint surround technology to entertain passengers. There is also a 15-inch diagonal multi-color head-up display and a sunroof.
In addition to these exclusive features, the Denali Ultimate trim of the 2024 Sierra HD also benefits from the standard features found on this truck. With this update, the Sierra has a 13.4-inch diagonal touchscreen infotainment system. According to GMC, this is the largest screen in the segment. It also comes with various customization options. In addition, there is also the possibility of using multiple apps at the same time, thanks to the split screen functionality.
The functions of this infotainment system do not end here. It also comes with Google built in, allowing for better integration of connected technologies. In addition, this device also supports wireless connectivity via Android Auto and Apple Car Play. What’s also new with the 2024 update is a 12.3-inch digital driver display.
The 2024 GMC Sierra HD Denali Ultimate also comes with a MultiPro tailgate that offers six-way adjustments and features a Kicker sound system. Not only this, but this trim also comes with motorized side steps as standard.
The cabin of the Sierra Denali Ultimate, in addition to having a host of exclusive luxury elements and creature comforts, also promises to keep its occupants safe. In addition to having various passive safety features, such as multiple airbags, this truck’s top model also has several active safety features. Additionally, it comes with GMC’s Pro Safety Suite, which includes several driver assistance technologies.
This is the best feature of the Sierra Denali Ultimate’s Cabin
Another feature of the new Sierra Denali Ultimate makes the cabin experience much better than its competitors. Of course, it’s not just the 6.6-liter Duramax engine, which now produces 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft of torque. But the access to 14 camera views. These become especially useful when towing, which, to be honest, is what most Sierra HD owners will be doing. Part of these 14 camera views is Coupling Control with Coupling View to help align the truck correctly when connecting a trailer.
In addition, a bed view with zoom and bed control shows a view of the truck’s bottle, allowing for a smoother coupling process when connecting with a gooseneck or a turntable. If that’s not enough, there’s also a rear side view with a trailer length indicator that helps change lanes by highlighting any obstacles in the path of the trailer.
