TOTD: 2014 GMC Sierra Denali - Base 5.3L or Upgraded 6.2L?

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/19/2014 Karla Sanchez

Taking delivery of new long-term vehicles is always fun, and one of the best parts about adding a vehicle to our fleet is definitely the part when we get to spec it out. We just added a 2014GMC Sierra Denali to our fleet and technical editor Frank Markus had no problems in deciding how to order the truck.

TOTD: 2014 GMC Sierra Denali - Base 5.3L or Upgraded 6.2L?

Markus went big, reaching for the very top model offered: a Denali Crew Cab 4x4 with the 6.5-foot bed and chrome 22-inch wheels that alone cost $2295. Markus also checked off the sensible $230 trailer-brake controller, bringing the grand total to $54,585. However, he didn't go too crazy because he managed to resist the beefy 6.2-liter engine. While he says it was worth it, do you think it was? For today's TOTD, we want to know whether you'd go vanilla with the base 5.3-liter engine, or go all-out for the 6.2-liter V-8.

Without adding any options, the truck could be yours for $49,410. For $1995 more, you can get the 420-hp 460 lb-ft 6.2-liter V-8 and pay a grand total of $51,405. Instead of opting for more power for close to $2000, the base can be had with other features such as an off-road suspension package ($255), power sunroof ($995), and a rear-seat entertainment package for $1495. Would you stick to the base 5.3-liter engine like Markus, or would you upgrade to the 6.2-liter engine? Let us know in the comments below for today's TOTD!
