|The 2013 Denali Terrain-a small SUV that gets very good fuel economy.|
More power, same efficiency
The Terrain Denali comes with GM's new 3.6-liter V-6 engine with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing with 301 horsepower and 272 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is also expected to deliver the same fuel economy as the previous model and engine. The fuel economy is achieved through weight reductions in the new engine.
Terrain’s standard Ecotec 2.4-liter I-4 with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing is also availabl delivering 32 highway mpg (2WD model). Front-wheel drive is standard on Terrain Denali, with all-wheel drive available for both engines.
New dual-flow dampers are exclusive to the Terrain Denali’s suspension system. This technology provides a smoother ride and improved handling by controlling suspension dampening across a broader range of driving conditions.
Models with the 2.4L engine feature 18-inch wheels, while the V-6 engine is paired with 19-inch wheels.
Inside and out, the 2013 Terrain Denali features high-end details. Models with the 2.4L engine feature 18-inch wheels, while the V-6-equipped model is paired with 19-inch wheels. Other Denali-specific exterior features include: signature chrome grille, satin chrome accents,
body color front and rear fascias, body color rocker panels with satin chrome molding,
new headlamp and taillamp designs, dual chrome finish exhaust outlets (single outlet on 2.4L).
Terrain Denali’s cabin updates are highlighted by Soft-touch Jet Black leather lines the seats and door inserts and is accented with contrast stitching and red accent lighting. Other Denali-exclusive interior details include: Soft-touch instrument panel, a leather-wrapped steering wheel mahogany wood trim accents, eight-way power driver and passenger seat
Many of GMC’s technologies come standard with the Denali Terrain, including a color touch radio with IntelliLink. This new infotainment system features a reconfigurable home screen; intuitive voice commands; Bluetooth smartphone integration; control of streaming internet radio apps such as Pandora and Stitcher; and iPod controls with Gracenote music database technology.
Forward collision alert and lane departure warning are standard on Terrain Denali. They use the industry’s first single-camera crash-avoidance system to visually and audibly warn drivers when a collision is imminent or the vehicle crosses a lane marker.
In addition, side blind zone and rear cross traffic alert help avoid collisions by using radar to watch spots the driver may not be able to see – and provide visible and audible warnings.
Convenience features, such as a programmable power liftgate, are standard on Terrain Denali. At the touch of a button, owners can access the vehicle’s 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space (behind the first row), while a memory function stops the liftgate at a chosen height to help shorter drivers or accommodate low garage heights.
Available technologies include color touch navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system.
As with every new GMC, the Terrain Denali comes with six free months of OnStar’s Directions and Connections plan. It includes Automatic Crash Response, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, roadside assistance, emergency services link, stolen vehicle assistance and remote door unlock.
Pricing and availability of the 2013 Terrain Denali and Terrain 3.6L V-6 models will be announced closer to the on-sale date in the third quarter of 2012.
