What is it? GM has added the top-of-the-line Denali trim, popular on the Yukon SUV, to the Acadia crossover line. The Denali version will add a number of cosmetic changes and luxury amenities to the Acadia. The exterior will have lower front and rear fascias and body-color lower cladding, rocker moldings, and fender flares. Other distinctions include Denali badges and 20-inch two-tone chrome wheels.
Inside, the Denali is equipped with leather seats with matching leather door panel trim, a leather steering wheel, heated and cooled driver and passenger seats, and accent lighting. Tech features include a satellite navigation system with traffic capabilities, a rearview camera, three-zone climate control, and a memory driver seat.
The Denali will be powered by a 3.6-liter direct-injection V6 engine coupled to either front- or all-wheel drive, and will provide seating for seven or eight passengers. Its maximum towing capacity is 5,200 lbs.
When will it be available? Fall 2010.
