Denali doesn't back away from a big job

(Continued)

If you can get past that, the Sierra Crew Cab will not disappoint for on the road performance and value. Whether traversing interstate traffic or mountain passes, its big V8 engine will power you along in style with comfortable leather seating for five. Denali trim includes Bose sound system, enormous head and legroom in two-row seating for five, heated and cooled seats, rearview camera, heated steering wheel and power adjustable pedals.

Call it a muscle truck too. In the zero to 60 mile per hour sprint, the 2-½ ton truck crosses the line in an impressive 6.6 seconds, faster than many cars on the road.

While some of the competition is technologically ahead of the Sierra, ride, handling and comfort remain strong points in the GMC lineup.
