GMC Introduces New 3.6L V-6 For 2013 Terrain Denali
Denali, an exclusive sub-brand of GMC, is being made to undergo a significant expansion with the introduction of more style and power to the luxury small SUV. The newly introduced Terrain Denali is testimony of that fact. Armed with a new 3.6-liter V-6 engine with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing is more than just a replacement for the old 2.0-liter V-6.
The engine in the 2013 version of the Terrain Denali has output figures of 301 horsepower and 272 lb-ft of torque, which is much more in comparison to the older version. However, the fuel economy has been designed to be equal to the previous version. The suspension system has been accessorized with new dual-flow dampers, which provides the vehicle a smoother ride and improved handling.
In addition to the V-6, the Terrain is also available in a standard Ecotec 2.4-liter I-4 with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing. The 2.4-liter engine version features 18-inch wheels, while the V-6 is fitted with 19-inch wheels. Other significant exterior features include a signature chrome grille, satin chrome accents, body colored front and rear fascias, new headlamp and taillamp designs, and dual chrome finish exhaust outlets.
The Terrain’s interior has been highlighted by soft-touch Jet Black leather, which lines the seats and the door inserts. A soft-touch instrument panel with French stitching marks the attraction at the center. Other visual upgrades in the vehicle include leather-wrapped steering wheel with smoked mahogany wood accents, embossed Denali logos on front seatbacks, smoked mahogany wood trim accents, Denali illuminated front sill plates and eight-way power driver and passenger seat.
The Terrain Denali is also accessorized with a host of technology features. Some of GMC’s leading technologies appear as standard in the Terrain. The feature that requires a mention is a color touch radio with IntelliLink, which features a reconfigurable home screen, intuitive voice commands, Bluetooth smartphone integration, control of streaming internet radio apps such as Pandora and Stitcher, and iPod controls with Gracenote music database technology.
