Denali – GMC’s premium brand
Luxury, style, and superior engineering
When it was first introduced in 1999, the name Denali was chosen for premier GMC vehicles because it represented the traditional native name of the highest peak on the tallest mountain in North America – and GMC wanted the name to reflect the pinnacle of high standards of craftsmanship and engineering that goes into every vehicle carrying the Denali name plate.
Originally the Denali name was give to the top-of-the-line version of the GMC Yukon for the 1999 model year.
Since then, the Denali standard has been applied to several trucks and cross-over vehicles in the GMC line-up and each maintain the high quality that has come to be expect when you get behind the wheel of a vehicle that is deserving of the name.
In addition to the Yukon, the Denali line of premier GMC vehicles has grown to include the Terrain, Acadia, Sierra, and the Canyon.
