General Motors unveiled Thursday a Denali version of its GMC Terrain , which features a number of visual upgrades over the regular Terrain.
GM said it will offer the 2013 GMC Denali Terrain with either a new 3.6-liter V6 engine or an Ecotec 2.4-liter four cylinder engine with direct injection. The new V6 engine will generate 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque.
All models are fitted as standard with FWD, with all-wheel drive available for both engines. GMC promises a smoother ride for the new Terrain thanks to the new dual-flow dampers used in its suspension.
Four-cylinder Terrain Denalis get 18-inch wheels, while 19-inchers are saved for the V-6 model.
Other upgrades on the model include a custom chrome grille, satin chrome accents all around, body-colored bumpers, revised head and tail-lamps, and chrome finish exhaust outlets.
Inside, the Terrain Denali ups the ante with a Jet Black interior that features red contrast stitching and accent lighting. In addition, you get Denali logos on the front seat backs and illuminated on the sill plates to remind you that you got the Denali.
Features introduced in the 2012 model year to the Terrain like GMC’s IntelliLink touch-screen infotainment system that can stream internet radio apps, forward collision alert, and the lane departure warning system are standard on the 2013 Terrain Denali.
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.
