There is something about the 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali line that makes buyers, critics and enthusiasts stop and pay attention. This work truck from GMC has managed to maintain a tough reputation in the market, but really, it is so much more. When a buyer orders the Sierra 1500 Denali Truck, it is clear that he or she wants performance, both on and off the road, and this is a vehicle that certainly does not disappoint. The current version of the Sierra 1500 Denali is highly flexible and considered as the "plush" version of the Sierra 1500.
The Denali line-up, including the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Truck, offers only top of the line features, amenities and appointments, paired up with the best in technology. This pick-up comes complete with the VORTEC 6.2-liter V-8 flex fuel engine that offers 417 horsepower and 403 pound feet of torque. This is complemented by a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine is also E85 fuel compatible, which means that it can run on cleaner, more efficient fuel made from 85 percent ethanol. Buyers can choose between two general styles of the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Truck, including the AWD Crew Cab and the 2WD Crew Cab. Both styles are serviced by the same engine, which means both styles offer the same performance in terms of horsepower and torque. As you may expect, fuel-economy is the one thing that suffers the most. If the AWD Crew Cab is selected, the driver can expect to receive 12 miles per gallon for city driving and 18 miles per gallon on the highway. If you have a load to tow, a well-equipped Denali can handle 8,600 pounds with ease.
