2013 GMC Terrain Denali priced from $35,350Tue, 12 Jun 2012
The 2013 GMC Terrain Denali five-passenger SUV will have a base price of $35,350, including shipping charges.
The 2013 Terrain is the latest GMC offering to get the luxury Denali trim, joining the Acadia Denali, the Sierra Denali pickup and the Yukon Denali.
Pricing for the 2013 full model lineup hasn't been made available, but the 2012 Terrain ranges from a base price of $26,385 up to $32,085 for the top SLT-2 trim level. The $3,200 bump up for the Denali trim brings upgraded styling and safety features. The seven-passenger 2012 Acadia Denali starts at $45,635, and the non-Denali models range from $33,660 to $40,790.
The base 2013 Terrain Denali model is equipped with a fuel-efficient 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque with front-wheel drive. Optional all-wheel drive raises the base price to $37,100.
With the introduction of the Terrain Denali, GMC also announced a new available 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. It replaces a 3.0-liter V6 used in the 2012 Terrain. The new engine uses fuel-efficient technologies such as direct injection and continuously variable valve timing.
The V6 engine can be paired with either drivetrain for an additional $1,750, and the upgrade includes 19-inch chrome-clad wheels.
Standard safety features include forward collision alert and lane-departure warning, along with Denali-exclusive side blind-zone and rear cross-traffic alert.
Other standard technology and convenience features include a programmable power liftgate, integrated garage-door-opener controls and Intellilink. Also included is GMC's voice-controlled infotainment system with Bluetooth capability and smartphone integration to use apps such as Pandora and Stitcher Smart Radio.
Unique interior standard features found on the 2013 Terrain Denali include eight-way power front passenger seats and enhanced dampers on the front suspension for extra ride comfort.
Options include a trailering package, touch-screen navigation system, accessories such as a rear cargo cover, a cargo convenience net and luggage crossbars along with the V6 engine. Pricing on these options have not been made available.
The Terrain Denali goes on sale later this summer.
