The model 2019 GMC Sierra Denali, better identified as Sierra, is a family pickup truck from the house of GMC which has pretty much lived its entire existence right from launch till date in the shadow of its identical design and mechanical functionality; twin the Silverado from the house of automobile manufacturers of greater repute and premium value, Chevrolet. An amazing all-purpose heavy-duty vehicle, it failed to get the recognition and acknowledgment for its efficiency, owing to all the credit being hogged up by its rival Silverado, rendering the vehicle to be a poor man’s version of the Silverado.
