GMC has announced that its Terrain crossover will get a more powerful engine and a more upscale version for 2013.
The 2013 GMC Terrain will be powered by a 301 hp, 3.6-liter V6, replacing the 264 hp, 3.0-liter V6 used in the 2012 GMC Terrain. Despite the substantial power increase, GMC says that the bigger engine will get the same fuel economy as the 2012 model, 17/24 mpg for front-wheel-drive models and 16/23 mpg for all-wheel drive models. The 182 hp, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine will continue to be offered as well.
The more upscale Denali trim level will be available with both the four- or six-cylinder engines, in front-wheel or all-wheel-drive. The Denali package includes more upscale exterior elements including a chrome grille, different headlights and taillights, and body-color rocker panels with satin-finish chrome trim. The 2013 GMC Terrain Denali comes well-equipped with standard features such as forward-collision alert and lane departure warning systems, side blind zone and rear cross traffic alert, a voice-controlled infotainment system and a programmable power lift gate. Besides the new V6, there are just a few options, including color touch navigation, a trailer package and luggage crossbars.
The 2013 GMC Terrain Denali goes on sale this fall. It will start at $35.350, including the destination charge.
