Last March, we got our hands on a spy picture of what was a Denali version of the GMC Terrain. The mule had a blacked out honeycomb grill and a new square, chrome exhaust tip. We though the Terrain Denali would be coming sometime this year. Well, we were right on except the year.
Automotive News reports that sources inside GM say Terrain Denali is a go. The reason to building a Denali version are to keep the sales momentum going for the Terrain (2011 saw a 37% increase in sales). Building a more luxurious version of the Terrain could attract more buyers, with Denali vehicles seeing a 79% increase last year. Also, a Denali version would help provide more separation between the Terrain and the Chevrolet Equinox.
So what will Terrain Denali look like? Well, expect a honeycomb grill, large chrome wheels, body cladding, and new exhaust tips. Inside, a set of perforated leather seats and some Denali badging through out the interior.
When asked for comment, a GM spokesman declined.
