Big pickups have never been so advanced. Of course, they all have similar towing functions, but in addition, almost every such modern truck is flavored with various security systems, electronic assistants and towing devices. And if the Ford F-150, as well as the Ram 1500, in terms of features and equipment, look impressive compared to other pickups, then the new GMC Sierra Denali is like an alien from another planet against the background of competitors.

Sierra Denali is recognizable from afar. It has a lot of chrome on the exterior. A lot of chrome. It is found on the grille, fog lights, wheels, mirrors, window moldings, door handles, logos, decorative grilles in the fenders and at the bottom of the bumper. Chrome is everywhere. Thanks to its many sparkling elements, the pickup contrasted very strongly with the gloomy surroundings of Newfoundland on the seashore, where the new product was being tested.

The Sierra Denali is offered with two V8 engines to choose from: a 5.3-liter or a 6.2-liter. And these are by no means old motors. Both feature the same dynamic fuel management system as the Chevy Silverado. It automatically disconnects and reconnects individual cylinders depending on driving conditions. At one point, the V8 of our test pickup was running on just one cylinder when driving off the mountain.

And while driving on a flat two-lane road at a speed of 80 km / h, only four cylinders functioned. Stomp on the gas pedal and all 8 cylinders will instantly come to life. At the same time, you will never guess in which mode the power unit worked before.

Like Chevrolet, GMC has integrated Dynamic Fuel Management, making it seamless for the driver. The engine will never tell you in which mode it is working at the moment. I could not feel it, as if aggressively and sharply pressed on the right pedal.

The Sierra always rides as confidently as any other Ram or Ford with a V8, while Dynamic Fuel Management achieves fuel consumption of 15.7 L / 100 km in the city and 11.8 L / 100 km on the track with the largest and most powerful unit. 6.2. The smaller, 5.3-liter, one hundred drinks 13.8 liters in the city and 10.2 liters on the highway, and with all-wheel drive.
