Have you ever wanted to do filthy work but look good doing so? If so, you have two way to accomplish this dream. One, you can go drop a few grand on a fancy suit and go to work in a waste management plant. Two, you hit up a GMC dealer and pick up a Sierra Denali 2500HD. The latter seems the more logical situation to me—crap washes off a truck, but the stench stays in your suit forever. Today, GMC revealed the first images of its revised 2017 Sierra Denali 2500HD, and a few key parts have me wondering what this thing is packing.
For the most part, the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD looks unchanged when compared to the 2016 model. There are, however, two areas that stand out. One is the new chrome-trimmed hood scoop and the other is the new grille. The grille is nothing too thought provoking, but that functional—yes, it’s actually real, folks—hood scoop all but confirms the rumors that GM is working on a new, more powerful, diesel engine.
The details remain scarce, for now, but most rumors indicate that GM could drop a new oil-burner with up to 900 pound-feet of torque at its disposal. This extra torque is, of course, a direct response to the F-250 Super Duty’s 860 pound-feet of twist.
We’ll keep an eye out for updates on this refreshed pickup and bring you the latest info as it becomes available.
