Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2020 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Even if you’re only vaguely aware of GMC products in general and Sierra full-sized pickups in particular, you probably know the brand’s most stylish and luxurious examples have long worn the Denali nameplate. Denali made its debut as GMC’s top-of-the-line 1998 Yukon sport-utility vehicle. Before GMC got around to cataloging a Sierra Denali, however, there was the mostly forgotten (not by us, obviously) 2001 Sierra C3.

GMC Cannonball

1960 GMC DFRW 860 “Cannonball”

I’m not really into old commercial trucks. Not because old trucks aren’t cool, it’s just that the whole car thing fills my time pretty completely. I get the truck thing though, and certainly appreciate a vintage big rig whenever I come across one.

First Spin: 2021 GMC Yukon

2021 GMC Yukon Denali

Consumer Guide AutomotiveOver the past 20 years or so, most SUVs have morphed from a body-on-frame, truck-based construction to become “crossover” SUVs that utilize car-like unibody construction. The upside of this shift in design is better on-road driving dynamics and better driver ergonomics. The downside is reduced towing capacity and diminished capabilities in serious off-roading.

Why are car ads so superficial? Sure, we all want to see what a car looks like outside, but what’s hiding there just underneath that shiny sheet metal?
