ECONOMICAL & POWERFUL
GMC Denali XT Concept

Posted

The GMC Denali XT was designed and constructed at GM Holden's design centre in Port Melbourne, Victoria. It has a unibody architecture and rear-wheel drive which enables its distinctive design and efficient performance.

Denali XT's new, more efficient 4.9L version of GM's small-block V8 features fuel-saving technologies such as directinjection technology, Active Fuel Management and includes the first combination of GM's two-mode hybrid system with an E85 ethanol-capable engine. The engine is matched with GM's unique twomode hybrid propulsion system, giving the powerful SUT exceptional fuel economy and uncompromising capability - including all-electric drive at low speeds. Boasting an estimated 50-percent fuel economy, it is an improvement over comparable small pickup trucks when running on petrol. The exterior is muscular and wide with minimal overhangs, huge 23 inch wheels, custom Kumho tyres, sleek headlamps and a low roof profile deliver an aggressive, performance- oriented appearance. The wide road stance is accentuated by flared fenders and enhanced further when the Denali XT is lowered on its air-adjustable suspension, creating a sleeker appearance that simultaneously improves aerodynamics.

The Denali XT seats four comfortably as the high-cowl vehicle architecture enables higher seating positions, allowing the distance between front and rear occupants to be reduced without compromising knee room. This packaging efficiency creates generous interior and cargo bed dimensions within a more compact package.

The Denali XT has an estimated payload capacity of 499kg and a towing capacity of an estimated 1,587kg. This capability is delivered through unique vehicle and powertrain integration.
