  • Luxurious Denali trim coming for Terrain SUV
  • All Terrains get a new V6 option
  • 4-cylinder still offered, even on Denali

A few weeks ahead of the 2012 New York Auto Show, GMC took the wraps off an all-new version of its 2013 Terrain crossover SUV. The GMC Terrain Denali is essentially a fully loaded version of the Terrain. Premium features that are typically optional on the Terrain come standard in the Denali, including collision alert and lane departure warning systems, and a voice-controlled infotainment system with color touchscreen, iPod integration and connection to streaming internet apps like Pandora and Stitcher.

While many of the Terrain Denali's features can be added to any Terrain, the Denali version does get a few exclusive features to make it look and feel a little more distinct. There's a unique grille, brushed-style chrome trim plus new headlight and taillight designs. Inside there's a soft-touch dash, leather wrapped steering wheel, unique wood trim accents, lighted front door sills and an 8-way power driver's and passenger front seat. Navigation and rear-seat entertainment remain optional even on the Denali.

With GMC's new Terrain Denali comes a newly available V6 that will be offered in all Terrains for 2013. The new engine is a direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 with variable valve timing that produces 301 horsepower. GMC believes that even buyers who can afford luxury cars might be interested in better fuel economy, so the Denali trim can also be had with the Terrain's 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. That engine is rated at 32 mpg on the highway. The mpg ratings for the new V6 aren't available yet, but GMC says the use of direct injection and variable valve timing should make the more powerful 3.6-liter V6 just as efficient as the 3.0-liter V6 it replaces.

Like other Terrains, the Denali version is available with either front- or all-wheel drive.

What it means to you: As gas prices rise, many drivers are looking for ways to do more with less. The GMC Terrain Denali is a way to get good fuel economy without sacrificing luxury or SUV functionality.
