Terrain Denali

Our press vehicle for the week was the Terrain Denali. The Terrain Denali brings an exceptional level of style and refinement to the segment. Unique exterior and interior appointments, exclusive wheels and design cues set it apart. A chrome grille, body-color fascias, satin-chrome accents and dual chrome-finish exhaust outlets (single outlet with the 2.4L engine) convey a look of elegance. Denali-specific 18-inch (with the 2.4L engine) or 19-inch (with the 3.6L engine) wheels complete its sculpted appearance.

Interior highlights offer a sophisticated feel with soft-touch Jet Black leather lining the seats and door inserts. Denali-exclusive touches such as contrast stitching contribute to a luxurious interior. Additional cabin details include features such as embossed Denali logos on front seatbacks, smoked mahogany wood trim accents, and Denali illuminated front sill plates.
