The Denali Trim Returns to the 2021 GMC Terrain

2021 GMC Terrain Denali | Denver, CO

The 2021 GMC Terrain lineup will include the high-end Denali trim later this year. Rumors swirled back in the summer of 2020 that the 2021 model would skip the Denali trim. Thankfully, it is back and better than ever. Here is a look at why the Denali trim is worth the wait.

Luxury design, comfort, and technology

There’s a lot to love about the Denali trim of the 2021 GMC Terrain. It starts with exterior upgrades like 19-inch Bright machined aluminum wheels accented in Dark Grey and bold LED headlamps for an eye-catching design.

Inside, it’s all about luxury, comfort, and convenience with features like the heated steering wheel, the six-way power front passenger seat, and the programmable power liftgate you control hands-free. High-quality sound pulses through the seven speakers of the advanced Bose® premium audio system to elevate your enjoyment on the road.

Responsive, capable performance

You will appreciate the peppy performance of the turbocharged 1.5-liter LYX four-cylinder gas engine. It pairs to a nine-speed automatic transmission to generate 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. It earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city.* Plus, when properly equipped, the 2021 GMC Terrain Denali can tow 1,500 pounds.

Rumors of the 2021 GMC Terrain Refresh

2021 GMC Terrain Refresh | Henderson, CO

General Motors has been updating its crossover and SUV models recently. Earlier this year, Motor Authority spied the updated 2020 Chevy Equinox in camouflaged form. Now, the automaker is in the process of refreshing the GMC Terrain for the 2021 model year.

Autoblog recently witnessed a camouflaged 2021 Terrain at the brand’s Milford Proving Grounds. Though we don’t know all of the details about this model’s mid-cycle refresh, the spy shots reveal some information about its features.

Because the Terrain recently received a full redesign back in 2018, the mid-cycle updates should be subtle ones. According to Autoblog spy shots, the 2021 Terrain seems to have a floating roof design and the same midsection as the current model. It’s expected that the updated Terrain will sport a new fascia. Per Autoblog, it’s likely that the model will borrow the grille and headlight design from either its sibling, the Acadia, or its distant cousin, the GMC Sierra pickup.

If the 2021 GMC Terrain refresh does boast interior modifications, there should be only a couple of minor tweaks. For instance, the automaker might switch out the current model’s awkward push-button shifter on the dash for one with a more intuitive design.
