2017 GMC Terrain Denali Review, Release Date

This is the epitome, or at least that’s how GMC showcases it to
be, of what a compact SUV can be. The peak of luxury,
performance and any other feature that a 4-door traditional
5-seater SUV can have – this 2017 GMC Terrain Denali tries hard
at it.

2017 GMC Terrain Denali – Exterior Expectations and
Luxurious Interior Design

Imagining Jay-Z or Snoopy hanging around this car with a few
beautiful belles thrown here and there is easy – this 2017 GMC
Terrain Denali is exquisitely glamorous.

The wheel arches carry over into the front fender with style
and arch in over the fog lights bordered by metal “French-cut”
with an undercut of an air intake beneath. The grille sports
the GMC logo with aplomb; with its matte metal mesh and chrome,
surrounds looks laid-back and masculine. Black bordered
headlamps sports LEDs cut into two layers circumcised by sharp
indicators. The ‘Denali’ on the side finishes the deal only to
be carried over to the back.

The sexy cleave over rear lamps bordering windshield is the
first thing that is noticed. Contoured with the body, the lamps
snugly fit in with indicators on the inside. Front fascia
styling is carried over to the back clustering in the two sharp
rear reds on either side. The back fender houses a snug
diminutive exhaust.

Worth mentioning – this 2017 GMC Terrain Denali comes with
custom 18” or 19” wheels.

In a nutshell – GMC Terrain Denali 2017 is something worth
ogling.

  1. Curb Weight – 4068 lbs.
  2. Height – 66.3 inches.
  3. Ground Clearance – 6.90 inches.
  4. Wheelbase – 112.50 inches
  5. Length – 185.50 inches.

Cozy and hi-tech:

Leather all-the-way inside is the formula which GMC have laid
this car with. From the floor to the steering wheel, from
dashboard touches to seat stitches – there’s premium leather
everywhere. GMC has successfully showcased Denali as more than
a trim, as a signature brand logo with the tag-name embossed or
stitched onto the regal front seats. To make things better,
there’s always a few mahogany wood grain accents inserted and
touched into subtle places. Everything’s worth a ‘touch’ in
this plush cabin.

This 2017 GMC Terrain Denali is the topmost trim and it has all
the features which are present in the SLT trim. Major features
include:

  1. Single-zone Automatic climate control.
  2. Pioneer premium 8 Speaker System.
  3. Remote Starter and Universal Remote.
  4. IntelliLink with optional Color Touch Navigation upgrade.
  5. SiriusXM Sat Radio.
  6. OnStar Basic Plan for 5 years.
  7. 8-way power adjustable passenger and driver seats.
  8. Heated Front Seats.

Specific features which are available by default in this Denali
trim are:

  1. Driver Alert Package I and II.
  2. Rear Park Assist and Cross Traffic Alert.
  3. Side Blind Zone Alert.

an engine option other than the 2.4 Inline 4 VVT SIDI one; it’s
much more powerful.

  1. Engine Type – 3.6-liter VVT(Variable Valve Timing) SIDI
    (Spark-ignition Direct-Injection) V6.
  2. Output – 301 hp @6500 rpm and 272 [email protected] rpm.
