The 2017 GMC Terrain Denali offers the ultimate combination of style, efficiency and utility for those who want a luxury SUV but don’t need the size of a larger model.
In their review last year, AutoTrader editors said, "While some classify the GMC Terrain as a compact crossover, others say it's a midsize. The truth is the 2016 GMC Terrain enjoys the best of both designations. It offers fuel economy fit for a compact and the roominess of a midsize SUV. Add trucklike styling to the equation, and the Terrain becomes a truly compelling package." The Terrain Denali starts with everything that makes the Terrain so popular and adds even more style and luxury.
The 2017 Terrain Denali comes extremely well-equipped with the latest in safety features including Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert. The Terrain was named a 2016 “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the 2017 model is expected to perform equally well.
Outside you’ll find the bold Denali chrome grille, LED daytime running lamps, and tasteful chrome on the front and rear fascias. A Denali skid plate and dual exhaust outlets are added in back. Wheels range from 18 to 19 inches, and you also get a power liftgate with programmable lift height, perfect for low garages and other overhangs.
The Terrain Denali offers two engines. You can choose a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers a best-in-class 301 hp, 272 lb/ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway – impressive for a utility vehicle that can also get from zero to 60 mph in less than seven seconds. The Terrain Denali can achieve even better fuel economy – an estimated 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway – if you choose the 182-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Both engines are paired with six-speed automatic transmissions.
A fully independent sport-tuned suspension is standard, with advanced Dual-Flow Valving for improved handling and a smoother ride.
Inside, the Terrain Denali cabin is refined, luxurious and technologically advanced. Tremendous attention to detail is apparent. You’ll enjoy ambient lighting, wood trim, a soft-touch instrument panel and dash and leather door inserts. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather with mahogany wood inserts, and the seats are covered in supple perforated leather with contrast stitching. The GMC IntelliLink system, Siri® Eyes Free, text-message support and OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi make it easy to stay connected.
The Terrain Denali is also standard with GMC Pro Grade Protection – an all-encompassing suite of coverage that includes two complimentary maintenance visits, three-years/36,000-miles of Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty coverage, five-years/60,000-miles of Limited Powertrain Warranty coverage with Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation, six-months of OnStar Guidance services and five-years of the OnStar Basic plan.
