2022 GMC Sierra Denali Set to Gain Super Cruise

2022 GMC Sierra Denali Set to Gain Super Cruise | Spirit Lake, IA

If you have dreamed of having a hands-free driving experience in your GMC truck, you will not have to wait much longer. General Motors has announced that the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali will be getting the advanced Super Cruise technology.

Super Cruise technology has been available within the General Motors brands for a few years now. When activated, it allows you to drive hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of limited-access freeways in the United States and Canada.

Super Cruise uses GPS, camera, and LiDAR map technology to monitor your surroundings. It looks for road markings to help you stay within your lane and works with adaptive cruise control for steering, braking, and accelerating.

While this might make you think you can take a snooze on your way to work, you still must pay attention to the road. The system uses driver-monitoring technology to make sure you stay alert and focused. If you look away from the road for too long, the system will alert you to put your hands back on the wheel.

If you are anxious to try out Super Cruise technology before 2022, it will be available on the all-new GMC Hummer EV later this year. Super Cruise sounds like the perfect addition to long family road trips and cruising around Iowa from Estherville to Knoxville.

The 2022 GMC Sierra isn’t out yet, but you can check out the latest Sierra 1500 models at Motor Inn of Spirit Lake.

What Is the GMC CarbonPro™ Bed?

What Is the GMC CarbonPro™ Bed? | Spirit Lake, IA

GMC trucks are built tough, which is why the new Sierra Denali 1500 and Sierra AT4 1500 will include brand-new CarbonPro™ beds. If you’re curious to learn more about this new bed liner, here is an overview.

What is a CarbonPro™ bed?

CarbonPro™ is a composite made of carbon fiber that is extremely durable and resistant to scratches, dings, and corrosion. GMC global vice president Duncan Aldred said of the new CarbonPro™ bed liner, “CarbonPro™ is made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications. Coupled with offering the world’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate, the 2019 Sierra packs a one-two hauling punch for whatever the situation demands.”

Why choose a CarbonPro™ bed?

GMC wanted to make sure the CarbonPro™ bed was up for anything, which is why it was brutally tested. These tests ensured it could handle 1800 pounds of gravel dropped from alternating heights, a snowmobile running its tracks at full speed against the bed, and the heat and cold of extreme locations like Yuma and Kapukasing. In all test cases, the CarbonPro™ bed came away with only minimal signs of wear. The GMC CarbonPro™ bed also eliminates the need for a spray-in bed liner, and increases the Sierra’s payload due to its lightweight nature.

Visit Motor Inn Auto Group to see the new CarbonPro™ bed in the GMC Sierra 1500 today.

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.
