Completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, the new GMC Terrain Denali ships exclusively with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter LTG inline-4, rated at 252 horsepower. That engine will send its power through GM’s new 9T50 9-speed automatic transmission, with a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Opting for the latter drivetrain will tack an extra $1,800 onto the sticker price, for a starting MSRP of $40,295.
Ponying up for the range-topping “Denali” trim comes with some visually-striking perks, like LED headlamps and 19-inch wheels with a machined-aluminum finish. The grille is a dazzling piece with a more intricate, hexagonal pattern that instantly sets it apart from the lesser trim levels. In addition, the Denali comes standard with a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a programmable, hands-free power liftgate, an 8-inch infotainment screen with navigation, and a premium Bose audio system with seven speakers.
Standard safety features in the 2018 GMC Terrain Denali include Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and a Safety Alert Seat.
