GMC Denali XT Concept
I wonder if this is the Holden based concept they were talking about.
Pretty much a new el Camino. But with 4 doors and a more trucky look.
This is based on the same platform as the Pontiac G8.
And I think it would be a great idea to finally push GMC into the 21st century….

This reminds me a lot of ford’s latest concepts (interceptor)…with the rounded corners etc. I guess this is the new design trend for automakers. I could see this truck appealing to a variety of people. Very impressive!
Doesn’t it look ugly?
If Honda did this, the banshees would be screaming how horrible it is. If GM does it, it will be brilliant.
it seems late to the game with Honda Ridgeline already in the market and this years Toyota Concept. Don’t get me wrong I love the way it looks but it’s no game changer. Should they make it, yes, but in small numbers. The more I look at these images I keep thinking of wagons like Dodge Magnum which sold well at first then tanked. Make this a low volume vehicle and you get a winner. Make it a high volume vehicle and you got incentives written all over it.
It would be interesting if they adopted some of the new Camero’s fascia to the front if they were to make a Chevy version.
What striked me the most with this design was how the roof line and side windows look kind of like the
Yes, it has several styling cues from the Ridgeline but the execution is better. If it does go to production, it will have to get a revised front and rear for crash standards. The beltline is very different from anything with a truck bed and the C pillar is unique. I suspect the wrap around tailgate will have to go..
I agree that its no game changer, but its a step in the right direction for GM and its future CAFE standards.
That’s one hot ride. They should build it.
They should produce and name it the GMC rebate lol, and those rear doors are smaller than the wrangler rear doors and i had a hell of a time getting into the back at the recent auto show !
Also it looks dorky frumpy and ugly all rolled into one ! so roll into the 21st with oddball styling and it wont last.
Also if they produce this based on the G8 platform it will cost more than a regular 4 door sierra !
I like it too, I hope it has the Avalanche’s features, like the fold down window thing that connects the cab to the bed. I know it will sell if it is rear wheel drive and has a V8 or some kind of hybrid in it.
Yes agree with a couple posters, very low volume, not a game changer. It is definitely hard to find anything that changes the game anymore. Probably the last vehicle that did that was the prius.
So that’s what a Scion xB would look like with a short bed. Nice photoshop.
Concepts can be brilliant, or they can be the answer to a question never asked.
This is the latter.
Great idea, but the concept looks too cartoony. Like something we’d see come from Honda.
