Check out the specs:
1. Denali is a new trim level for 2013. It is, far and away, the most luxurious Terrain, a crossover SUV also available in SLE and SLT trim.
2. The Denali trim level is distinguished with unique exterior and interior appointments, exclusive wheels and radar-based safety technologies like Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
3. Optional on SLE and SLT and standard on Denali is GMC`s new infotainment technology, IntelliLink. This new infotainment system features a reconfigurable home screen, voice commands, Bluetooth smartphone integration, control of streaming internet radio apps such as Pandora and Stitcher, as well as iPod controls with Gracenote music database technology.
4. Also new for 2013 is a direct-injection, 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 301 hp. The old 3.0-liter made 264. Yet, despite a 14-percent increase in power, the new engine rates the same 20-mpg combined rating (in front-drive models) as did the engine it replaces.
5. The Terrain is on track for its best sales year ever in 2012. Year to date through August, sales are up more than 10 percent versus the same period a year ago.
