Having recently begun production at the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan, the GMC Acadia Denali is hitting dealers as your read this. The new trim level of the award-winning crossover is going to start at $43,220, excluding a $775 destination charge.
This $43,220 will buy a large increase in features. The Denali includes a lot of aesthetic upgrades, including the traditional honeycomb chrome grille that has become synonymous with the Denali line, monochromatic exterior paint trim, 20-inch chrome wheels, and additional chrome trim on the interior and exterior. The package will also include features such as HID headlights, heated and cooled front seats, rear-seat entertainment systems, a Bose 10-speaker 5.1 surround-sound audio system, and even a Heads-Up Display for the driver. Of course the list doesn’t stop there, so if you want the full list of options check out the Acadia Denali configurator here.
Unfortunately, the top-of-the-line Acadia is more of a trim package and will not see an alternative engine or anything of the like. This is in stark contrast to its larger Yukon and Sierra Denali counterparts that receive mechanical upgrades to go along with the chromed-out looks. However, when drivers are rolling down the street on 20-inch wheels and a fancy Head-Up Display and stellar sound system – they just might forget about it.
