An 8-in.-diagonal Customizable Driver Display and Color Touch navigation radio with IntelliLink, located above the center console, also serves as the hub for Bluetooth-connected phones and portable devices, connected through 4 standard USB ports. Other interior technologies include OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot; Bose premium sound system; wireless phone charging (new for 2016); remote start, keyless entry, and locking tailgate; power-adjustable pedals; power-sliding rear window with defogger; and rear-vision camera with dynamic guidelines.
Set to go on sale late in the first quarter of 2016, the Sierra Denali Ultimate will be offered exclusively on 4-wheel drive 1500 crew cab models with either a 68-in. or a 78-in. cargo bed.
