2016 GMC Sierra Denali

Denali represents the top rung of the GMC Sierra truck ladder, its station announced by a ritzy, chrome-laden grille and fancy trim. The 4WD version tested came to $63,285 with destination charge.

2016 GMC Denali

Denali’s signature “chain mail” grille is what separates the top-end Yukon from its lesser stablemates. It also likely contributed to our tester’s $74,000 sticker.

New High Country trim level gives Chevrolet Silverado (right) a premium topline model along the lines of the GMC Sierra Denali (left).

At a press event a couple years ago, a manufacturer’s rep riding with us in one of his company’s high-end pickups made the comment, “We can’t seem to find the price ceiling that makes our customers balk.” Indeed, this “truck” we were riding in boasted leather upholstery, wood trim, every conceivable power accessory, a sunroof, a navigation system, rear-seat DVD entertainment … and a window sticker close to $50,000.

Keep in mind our country was just clawing its way out of the worst economic slump since the Great Depression, during which vehicle sales dropped by a third. Yet it seemed the pickup market was booming, at least when it came to pickups loaded with accessories that nearly doubled their base price.

In the past few years, almost every full-size pickup manufacturer has brought out specially trimmed high-end models: Ford has the F-150 King Ranch and Platinum, GMC the Sierra Denali, Ram the Laramie Longhorn Edition, and Toyota the Tundra Platinum and 1794. Conspicuously absent was a high-end Chevrolet. But no longer.

Even if you are only a casual follower of the new-vehicle marketplace, you are likely familiar with GMC’s popular Denali trim level. Denalis are the best-equipped, most luxuriously trimmed trucks in any given GMC vehicle model line. Denali has proven to be a profit center for GMC, with the customer take rate on the pricey trim level running as high as 50 percent on the Yukon/Yukon XL large SUVs.

2018 Tahoe RST

2018 Chevrolet Tahoe RST

Consumer Guide Automotive

Chevrolet’s extra-large SUVs can get a bit more attitude for 2018 with the addition of the RST Edition package. Available on both Tahoes and Suburbans, the RST (for “Rally Sport Truck”) appearance package brings a body-color grille surround and door handles in place of chrome, as well as blacked-out mirror caps, grille, window-trim, badging, and roof rails. The finishing touch is a set of exclusive 22-inch wheels on Bridgestone tires.
