2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD Gets New Hood Scoop — Yes. At the first day of this month, GMC decided to announce the new special addition to its new 2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD, the hood scoop. Unlike the previous trims, this detail is new, and it hints a little on what they plant under the hood of the new model. Here is complete information on the announcement.
2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD Specifications
Powertrain, Engine reviews
The new 2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD head scoop should be built to complete a certain update on the engine. As it is mentioned as functional, there is the possibility that the new GMC engine is going to need some cool air during the performance. The previous model already carries excellent engine, and it is only one year old now, so the new model is most possibly bringing an update from the previous engine.
The current model is empowered by two engine options including turbocharged V8 6.0-liter diesel engine that generates 360 hp of power output with 380 lb-ft of torque performance. And, turbocharged V8 6.6 liter diesel engine that produces 397 hp of power output with 765 lb-ft of torque performance.
|Torque||380 pound-feet of torque|
Both engines are paired with six-speed Allison 1000 automatic transmission. Until today and the following year, this engine is still in the top range, so the new engine is highly unlikely even though possible.
Exterior and Interior of 2017 GMC Sierra Denali HD
From the outside, it is still the same Sierra Denali we know with its signature cheese grater huge front grille, projector beam headlights, and LED running time day time. The new addition is the hood scoop in chrome trim right above the huge grille. The rests of the detail remain the same as in the previous model.
There is no further information concerning the interior look. If we want to assume, it should come similar to this year model with only slight update and improvement on it. GMC’s emphasize on the new hood scoop also indicates that the interior detail will not be a big surprise this time.
2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD Release Date and Price
There is no official information about the release, but this is 2017 model, so it should be launched later this year or sooner next year. Price in Canada remains unspecified as well. But, based on estimation, price starting from $34,000 with $100 to $200 increase between trims on the lineup is totally logical.
Even though this model looks so great, it is a little bit disappointing that GMC released the announcement without revealing more details. The new hood scoop is interesting and the possibility of engine updates is also intriguing. Further details on 2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD should be revealed within coming months.
