2003 GMC Sierra - Price Quote

Visit GMC for more information on the GMC Sierra.

Flashy brother to the workhorse Sierra Base, the 2003 GMC Sierra Denali is one of the biggest boys in the Full-size Pick-up class. A luxury vehicle with a fiery iron heart, the Denali has more power than one would expect until you find its 325 horsepower, 6.0-liter V8. Two other standard features, the 8-wire trailer hitch and the OnStar System give a sense of the dual priority present in the Denali's design. With performance and luxury vying for supremacy as priorities in the design phases, the winner appears to be the consumer.

Available Models
The Denali ups the ante on the Base Sierra with more power, a more extensive collection of features, and improved performance specs. This is the top of the line for the GMC's full-size pick-up class; bigger, stronger, faster and not six million dollars.

Interior Features
Simply put, the Sierra Denali has it all and then some The list of features goes on forever but here are some highlights; dual-zone automatic climate controls, cruise control, tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, an OnStar System w/one-year service that includes roadside assistance, emergency services and an AM/FM/cassette w/in-dash 6-disc CD changer and available satellite radio.

As for seating and driver comfort, heated leather upholstered power front bucket seats with driver side memory settings are standard equipment. An engine hour-meter, power everything (including adjustable pedals), and much more are part of the interior convenience or functional details.

Exterior Features
Meanwhile, on the outside, a number of great exterior features include but are certainly not limited to, tubular step boards, roof-marker lights, tonneau cover and color-keyed bumpers; fog lights and an 8-wire trailer harness add additional value.

The Denali is powered by a powerful Vortec 6.0-liter V8 with 320 horsepower at 5000rpm and 370lb-ft of torque at 4000rpm. The AWD 4-speed automatic transmission gets 16/20 mpg (city/hwy) and it has GM's Quadrasteer 4-wheel steering, adding stability at highway speeds and maneuverability when parking or negotiating small spaces. Meanwhile, standard performance enhancements include GM's AutoTrac system and a ride-control suspension that makes for a smooth and controlled ride over even the roughest terrain. Basically, the Sierra Denali is loaded to the gunwales with all the latest performance and handling innovations in GM's extensive bag of tricks.

Safety and Security
Naturally, safety was not ignored. The Denali has dual front airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes and daytime running lights as standard equipment.
