Besides the 2013 Acadia, GMC also unveiled the 2013 Acadia Denali at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. This model is very important for GMC as the Denali trim represents 30 percent of Acadia sales. For the 2013MY, the GMC Acadia comes with a new three-dimensional polished grille, redesigned lower front and rear fascias, body-color lower cladding and rocker moldings, rear fasia and fender flares, new chrome accents and Denali badges, dual flow-through chrome exhaust outlets integrated into the rear fascia and 20-inch machined wheels.
The interior features perforated leather seating and Denali-specific Cocoa Dune upholstery color, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood inserts and power tilt/telescope, new aluminum trim accents, heated and cooled front seats, new accent lightning in footwells and wood inserts and power tilt/telescope, a color touch navigation, Side Blind Zone and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a dual SkyScape sunroof system, with sliding front sunroof and fixed rear section.
The 2013 GMC Acura Denali comes as standard with all-wheel drive and is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine delivering 288 horsepower (215 kW) and 270 lb-ft (266 Nm) of torque.
“When designing the new Acadia, we considered the contemporary shapes and materials GMC buyers expect from many products they buy,” said Dave Lyon, executive director of design. “The Denali’s attention to detail is the ultimate demonstration of this approach.”
