The recently-announced GMC Terrain Denali, a “small luxury SUV” — as described by GMC, will have a starting price of $35,350, including an $825 destination charge, when it arrives to dealers later this year.
Buyers get all kinds of amenities and some unique features such as standard IntelliLink infotainment system, forward collision alert and lane departure warning, as well as Denali-exclusive side blind zone and rear cross traffic alert. And since it’s a Denali, a few unique exterior styling elements round out the package, right alongside other handy amenities such as an eight-way power front passenger seat and dual-flow dampers for the front suspension.
The smallest Denali to date can be equipped with all-wheel drive for $37,100 and the 3.6 liter V6 engine making 301 horsepower can replace the standard 2.4 liter Ecotec 4-banger while also upgrading the chrome-clad wheels to 19-inches, from the standard 18s. Other options include a trailering package, Color Touch Navigation, and organization accessories like a rear cargo cover, a cargo convenience net and luggage crossbars — all of which will be available at an extra cost.
Expect the range-topping Terrain to begin landing at dealerships across the country during the third quarter of 2012.
