2019 GMC Terrain Denali review

GMC Terrain
The new Denali version of the GMC Terrain is set to compete with luxury marques.

GMC is using the 2019 Terrain Denali to gain a foothold in the growing mid-size luxury utility vehicle segment. It has positioned the Denali against established luxury brands like Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Lexus, Lincoln and Mercedes.

General Motors has used the Denali name for a decade. It first appeared as an up-level Yukon, and has since morphed its way unto every GMC product. In making a Terrain into a Denali, GMC has been able to take advantage of the new Terrain. The 2019 Terrain Denali has been sized to appeal to buyers in this segment. As a result, it rides on a wheelbase that has been reduced by 8.5 cm. The new Terrain is lower, and about 175 kilos lighter, yet it retains almost as much interior volume as the outgoing model.

At the age of five I was already obsessed with all things automotive being able to identify the make and model of car by just the sound of its engine going down the street in front of our house in the small town on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Although I have been covering and writing about the automotive scene for more than 40 years and the light still grows brightly.
