GM’s full-size pickups got huge makeovers last year, with smoother fascias, tighter panel gaps, and aerodynamic chin spoilers collaborating both to give the trucks better fuel economy ratings and fresher, more upscale appearances. The next thing GM did to get our attention was introduce a full-sizer that was both CNG and ethanol capable, effectively liberating GM customers from the grip of foreign oil to the point that they could drive their three-quarter ton rigs up to 600 miles on just 6 gallons of petroleum gasoline.
Short of GM pulling off the same trick with a physics-busting, quantum-powered EV, what more could we reasonably ask for from the General’s Chevy Silverado / GMC Sierra HD twins?
For starters, we could ask for some serious, Grade-A amenities, and the decidedly upscale Denali versions of the 2014 GMC Sierra HD trucks have all the posh gear and plush leather bits you might expect to find in a $79,000 Cadillac or even more hideously expensive Bentley Continental, plus a few more tricks up its truck sleeves. Tricks like GM’s own, fully-functional Pandora app, which I coo’ed over during my Chevy Colorado “deep dive” last week.
