History of the GMC Denali

History of the GMC Denali Lineup | Estherville IA & Knoxville IA

The history of the GMC Denali dates back to 1999. Since then, the development of the Denali has turned it into one of the best pickup trucks and SUVs on the market. These steps throughout the past 20 years have placed the Denali at its peak:

The first instance of the Denali name can be traced back to the 1999 GMC Yukon. In an attempt to steal customers away from the Lincoln Navigator, the top trim level of the Yukon was called the Denali. The Denali trim level had improved wheels, front and rear heated seats, a Nuance leather upholstery, and a Bose® seven-speaker audio system.

The 2001 Yukon Denali redesign saw the introduction of the iconic honeycomb grille which later became synonymous with the Denali. 2002 brought the genesis of the GMC Sierra, which was the second model added to the Denali name. 2011 brought along the Acadia, the Terrain emerged in 2013, and in 2016 the Canyon was introduced.

Denali models now carry a wide range of attractive features. Noise cancellation, aluminum trim and wheels, and stitching and trim details which are unique to GMC now come standard with the Denali. 20 years of excellence have made the Denali one of the most refined and luxurious truck and SUV trims on the market.

Experience the Denali for yourself when you stop by one of our Motor Inn locations in Estherville, IA, or Knoxville, IA, to test-drive a Yukon or Sierra version of this offering.

The GMC CarbonPro Bed Successfully Passed a Gauntlet of Tests

GMC CarbonPro Bed | Motor Inn | Estherville, IA & Knoxville, IA

For pickup drivers, long-term durability is one of the most significant indicators of overall quality. Because pickup drivers submit their vehicles to some of the most demanding driving of all, they absolutely need every component of their truck to last, even under extreme conditions. To this end, GM has introduced the all-new GMC CarbonPro bed, raising the bar for durability within the truck segment.

The CarbonPro box boasts high-strength and low-weight carbon fiber composite materials for added strength and rigidity and reduced weight. The result is the most rugged pickup box available on the market.

GM performed a number of extreme tests on the CarbonPro box during development. Researchers dropped cinder blocks onto the box from an elevation and unloaded 1,800 pounds of gravel into the bed. They even filled the box with water-filled steel drum barrels weighing 450 pounds each.

Carbon fiber is naturally corrosion-resistant, but GM tested out the corrosion-resistance of the CarbonPro bed nonetheless. Researchers exposed it to extreme temperatures and subjected it to the most drastic climates in North America.

Finally, GM tested the CarbonPro bed’s resilience by driving a snowmobile with metal studs into the bed. The result? You guessed it: the all-new CarbonPro bed took it in stride.

Experience the GMC CarbonPro bed for yourself when you stop by one of our Motor Inn locations in Estherville, IA, or Knoxville, IA.
