Exterior

Much of the profile outline and styling you are accustomed to in recent Denali model years remain intact.

Nuances such as a larger chrome and mesh rectangular grille, proudly display in red letters, "GMC", is one revision evident in the front. The compact vertically aligned LED headlights are a nice touch compared to its predecessors.

There are aerodynamic improvements with a deep front air dam normally reserved for the Tahoe hybrid and Chevy Volt.

The side doors are now over-lapping, once again improving air flow and making for a much more serene sounding cabin. The windshield and front door glass is now laminated which is another nod towards a quieter ride.

In the rear, there is a standard lift gate rear spoiler and a rear window wiper hidden under it.
