2016 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate Gets Unique Features, More Standard Technologies
There’s nothing standard about the standard offerings of the 2016 Sierra Denali Ultimate.
Offered exclusively on four-wheel drive 1500 crew cab models with either a 5’ 8” or 6’ 6” cargo bed, the trim level is distinguished with 22-inch wheels with either a chrome or black insert. Additional features include a sunroof, Tri-Mode Power Steps, Lane Keep Assist and IntelliBeam automatic headlamp control all of which come standard.
New front-end styling, introduced for MY 2016, includes high-performance LED headlamps with GMC LED signature lighting, an all-new Denali grille and LED taillamps.
In addition to those features, the Sierra Denali Ultimate includes advanced features and design elements of other Denali models, including body-color bumpers, chrome exhaust tip, unique interior decorative trim, a polished stainless steel exhaust outlet and a factory-installed spray-on bed liner with a three-dimensional Denali logo.
Buyers will find the Sierra Denali’s standard eight-inch-diagonal Color Touch navigation radio with IntelliLink located above the center console. IntelliLink features Apple CarPlay capability, with Android Auto capability coming later in the model year. Additional standard technologies and convenience features include:
- OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot
- Bose premium sound system
- Wireless phone charging – new for 2016
- Remote vehicle starter system
- Remote keyless entry with new remote locking tailgate
- Power-adjustable pedals
- Power-sliding rear window with defogger

The Denali Ultimate features premium soft-touch interior materials, aluminum trim and contrast stitching on the standard leather-trimmed interior – including 12-way power adjustable heated and vented front leather bucket and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The 2016 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate goes on sale late in the first quarter of 2016.
