GMC is expanding its exclusive Denali sub-brand with the 2013 Terrain Denali, bringing a new level of style and power to the luxury small SUV segment. It is distinguished with unique exterior and interior appointments, exclusive wheels and the radar-based safety technologies Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Across the Terrain lineup for 2013, a larger-displacement 3.6L V-6 engine with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing is offered. SAE certified at 301 horsepower (224 kW) and 272 lb.-ft. (369 Nm) of torque, this engine makes 14 percent more horsepower and 22 percent more torque than the previous 3.0L V-6, but delivers the same EPA-estimated fuel economy – including 24 mpg on the highway (FWD models).
The standard engine in Terrain and Terrain Denali is the Ecotec 2.4L four-cylinder, which also features direct injection and camshaft phasing to optimize performance and fuel efficiency.
Terrain is offered in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, in SLE and SLT trim levels, as well as the new Denali. All models include four-wheel disc brakes with StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control, as well as six standard air bags: dual frontal air bags; head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags.
GMC’s infotainment technologies are standard on Denali and available on other models, including a color touch radio with IntelliLink. This new infotainment system features a reconfigurable home screen, intuitive voice commands, Bluetooth smartphone integration, control of streaming internet radio apps such asPandora and Stitcher , as well as iPod controls with Gracenote music database technology.
