Exterior of 2016 GMC Sierra HD Denali
In our opinion, there is no much that needs to be changed in terms of exterior design of the 2016 GMC Sierra HD Denali. The exterior design of the vehicle is pretty great but yet, the company decided for minor but significant refreshment. If the rumors are true, the 2016 GMC Sierra HD Denali will arrive on the market with new body panels. There will also be some changes in terms of curb weight. Namely, the company used high strength steel in certain areas to make the vehicle not only stiffer but lighter which will further enhance its performance and have a rather positive impact on fuel economy. The front fascia of the vehicle will be decorated with a massive grille featuring GMC logo in the middle of it. The grille gives the vehicle a rather bold look and reflects its powerful personality. This time, the company will offer LED headlights as standard. Of course, fog lights will also be equipped with LED technology. The shape of headlights, taillights, and fog lights won’t be changed.
