2017 Sierra 2500 Denali HD – Release Date, News and Rumors

The newest form of the 2017 Sierra 2500 Denali HD is a spectacular setup. It actually manages to fight off the problems some other vehicles have caused due to the emission standards in the US. The addition of the complex and also expensive clean up systems is something that causes a lot of problems for the car manufactures and also something that raises the price, but GMC has managed to do away with it by adding a Duramax diesel engine option which helps with the emission standards and also gives a great performance to the car.

But the car is burly and sturdy as it gets and the dimensions are a sheer showcasing of the vehicle’s power and the ability to climb any obstacle laid in front of it. The Denali version also comes with a standard 6.5-foot long bed which increases the utility of the car and makes it much more useful than the other Sierra trims. This is the largest trim level of the largest model in the GMC lineup and that alone is a statement which helps define how much powerful the car can be.

The model brings a lot to the table and uses all of its assets to be a level above the competition which is going to come out strong in order to battle the emission code. The exclusive pictures and the entire review is going to help you determine if this car is for you and whether a truck like this one is going to fit your standards.

Exterior

The first thing that you get with the 2017 Sierra 2500 Denali HD is that it is imposing, very imposing. The size of the truck is so big that you sometimes cannot get over it in order to grasp all the other details the car comes with. It is almost 20-feet long as this version of the Sierra truck comes with a 6.5 foot long bed which is its standard option and version that the model has enhancing its ability and usefulness that way. The grille has been endowed with some shining chrome and the wheels as well making the car much more exclusive looking. The front headlights have a square look to them and are circled with LED running lights and features and actually the same square type of a design is seen in the front grille and the side mirrors as well.

The car has also a very high clearance and it is due to the large suspensions that actually lift the whole car upwards and let it seem much bigger also. The back side has a different type of a bumper that which larger corners actually help with bed access and can be quite useful in that manner. The vehicle still uses the traditional body on frame building method where the leaf spring supports the rear axel which is actually and old type of suspensions which should be changed in the future. The car can actually endure a payload of 2.798 pounds and is the reason this suspension is still being used.

The interior of the 2017 Sierra 2500 Denali HD actually looks pretty decent and does not have this massive look that you get from the outside. It is a pretty nicely set vehicle that does its best to make every person feel comfortable and enables a great feeling while driving. The dashboard actually has some natural leather sewed in it, making it seem much more exclusive. The front seats are also covered with leather and are power adjustable so to make the driver on top of the job in whatever situation he may be.

The Denali trim can boast itself with the added features that some lower trims of the GMC Sierra do not have. This one has a standard Bose sound system around which you can find all the adequate and necessary charging ports. The navigation is also a standard part of the equipment and comes as a part of the Best Purchase package that you get with the offered setup. The latest version of the OnStar system is given here with 4G Wi-Fi hot spot which also brings us a very spacious console part where we can put whole lap top computer if we wanted to.

Engine specs

Under the hood of the 2017 Sierra 2500 Denali HD there is going to be a brawny and a strong engine option as expected. The model is going to utilize the power from a 6-liter V-8 engine that makes 360 horsepower. There is going to be another option which is the diesel engine option making a lot better fuel economy. The power is measured at 397 horsepower and 765 pounds of torque which is an option that the fans were hoping for to get. It is particularly useful when we say that it is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission system which helps with the fuel economy numbers. The engine provides the vehicle capable of towing at a capacity of 3,450 pounds.

New 2017 GMC Terrain Release Date and Review

The newest 2017 GMC Terrain vehicle is getting a mid-life refresh which is going to give it a fresher and appealing look for a longer period now.

The refresh is going to include visual updates which are placed inside and outside of the car and are going to be a nice breath of fresh air for the Terrain. The sales are actually pretty good for the GMC Terrain model so the new 2017 one has not been introduced to help to car out of a difficult situation it has been made in order to continue to good path the vehicle has already taken.

The enhancements are going to be made for all of the trims and are added across the board as ever Terrain trim is going to feature something new. Under the hood we also get some news and the model is going to feature two powertrain options and two drive wheel options as well. This will unfortunately leave the fuel economy intact and will not make it greater but specs that still show 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway are acceptable in this car.

Keep reading the review and see what the GMC Terrain 2017 is going to be all about and also take a look at some exclusive spy photos taken recently as a preparation for the unveiling of the car.

Available trims

There are several trim levels already confirmed for the 2017 GMC Terrain already. The ones that are going to comeback are the SL, SLE, SLT, with the  SLE grade further broken down into SLE-1 and SLE-2 trim levels. Fans are also going to be happy to know that the popular Denali trim is also being offered and is certainly going to be the fan’s favorite option.

Exterior

The majority of the overall changes for the 2017 GMC Terrain concentrate on the exterior updates. The changes made to the front and the rear actually give a brighter appearance to the car while at the same time making it a bit more upscale looking as well. The Denali models have been updated with and added three-bar chrome grille which combines with a black honeycomb backing. The LED daytime running lights are still there and are now circled with C-shaped chrome ring wraps around them. This connects them to the center of the bumper area now and helps the car gain more visual weight to the front of the car making it seem more planted than before.

The same C-shaped design is used for the back side as it surrounds the reflectors on the rear bumper. The taillights are also dressed up with some chrome accents as well and the Denali and non Denali trims share the same front fascia this time, but the Denali models are dressed up in the familiar chrome details. To finish the update, a new form of 18- and 19-inch wheels is available and two new color options, the White Frost Tricoat and Crimson Red Tintcoat.

Interior

The inside of the 2017 GMC Terrain gets a light refresh. The changes made mostly concatenate on the center stack area and may be missed by the untrained eye as the cabin resembles the previous one very much. The hard buttons fro the infotainment system have been revised and are more intuitive than before. The door lock button has been moved from the dash to the door again while the  CD/DVD slot under the HVAC controls is replaced with a small shelf for storage. The shifter has been revised as well and adds new shifter buttons on its very top.

The seat coverings are new and the SL and SLE trims add a premium cloth coverings while the upper trims use a new “Saddle Up” leather color. The Denali models are using a combination of a Light Titanium and Jet Black color which makes it seem even more premium. The safety system is an important part here and the car now has Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert on SLE and SLT trims which was only offered for the Denalis before. The 2017 GMC Terrain also has a  OnStar is GM’s popular 4G LTE Wi-Fi on the inside.

Engine specs

This again leaves us with an option of a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder or an optional 3.6-liter V-6. Both the engines have been made with the available direct fuel injection and variable valve timing which enhances the fuel efficiency for the car. The standard option delivers 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque while the later has an output of 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. Independent from the engine variant the car comes with an FWD setup as standard and offers you the option of picking an AWD one also.

New 2017 GMC Yukon – Release Date and Info

As the 2017 GMC Yukon is getting ready for its release date, we are expecting some new updates from it as there was actually not too much time from the last model release of this model. The previous one has been given only last year and GMC has decided to enhance the car up with a few details and changes made which are going to start with a  Driver Alert Package and some new 22-inch wheels in order to keep the car fresh.

This helps the car stay afloat for yet another period and helps it battle against the competition, namely the latest Lincoln Navigator, and keep it among the top selling cars in its segment. The car is going to carry over a lot of details for the most part of its design but still offers a lot of innovative features to keep it a completely new model that way. The recent reworking of the Yukon actually brought to us a lot of new elements and we already had a pretty decent setup with the changes brought by the previous year model, so there was no need to change them significantly.

The changes are seen both on the inside and out but it is the inside of the car which is going to pack some more apparent and more obvious changes. We get a  fold-flat second and third row of seats as they now do not need to be removed if we want to get a flat load floor. The powertrain is also upgraded and provides us with added  EcoTec3 technologies as our new offer.

The 2017 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and Cadillac Escalade for 2017 have all upgraded their offer already and as they are considered their twins on the market, so had the GMC Yukon 2017 needed to do so as well. This review will help you determine just how much the car has changed for its upgrade.

Available trims

This year the 2017 GMC Yukon will feature the same kind of trims that it had the previous year. This means that the beside the base version there is going to be the Yukon XL and SLT while the Denali is also going to be featured as well.

Exterior

2017 GMC Yukon front angle, headlights and grille

For the outside of the car we do not expect to see many changes for the 2017 GMC Yukon model. We are getting a similar car compared to the exterior looks of the previous model as it can be quite hard to distinguish between the two now. Some electronics have changed and the SLT model comes with a hands-free liftgate feature which was standard only for the Denali models before. The wheels of the model have also grown and the car is going to provide us with some larger wheel sizes now. The newest addition is the 22-inch option, but the SLE and SLT levels still come with 18-inch ones as standard while both the 20-inch and 22-inch ones come as optional.

There are two new color pallets available as well as they are adding a Crimson Red Tintcoat option for three trim levels and a White Frost Tricoat  exclusively for SLT and Denali trims. Another addition, perhaps minor but still a change, is the new capless fuel filler neck. The system also adds a gasketed fuel door  which prevents any debris of getting inside the fuel tank. The Driver Alert Package provides us with automatic headlight feature which turns the high beams on and off depending on the change of traffic conditions.

Interior

The interior does not offer many differences for the 2017 GMC Yukon the same as the exterior. The look is similar but there are some differences that we can look forward to. We perhaps do not get an entirely changed look but we have some aesthetic features that have been reshaped as well. The best change is the added fold-flat second and third row of seats. There is an optional power-fold function which helps you transition quickly from a model which moves people around or cargo in your trunk. The hands-free liftgate also offers some  programmable settings which enables customize the usage of the liftgate in any way that you like.

The eight-inch infotainment screen is a standard offer here and is going to come back on the inside this year as well. it runs the GMC’s IntelliLink software and you can also make use of the SiriusXM satellite radio and 4G LTE Wi-Fi services  which are standard on teh insdie. navigation is offered optionally though while the Denali trims come with a upgraded instrument cluster that has a second eight-inch display  that is customizable and offers different theme settings.
