A recent review that I was lucky enough to conduct was of the new 2016 GMC Terrain Denali, the top-line model of this vehicle that is its fourth year of production. The Terrain itself is now in its seventh year of existence, and represents GMC’s counterpart to the Chevrolet Equinox. GMC is the division of General Motors that engineers and produces the trucks and utility vehicles for the company, and the brand offers a cachet of advanced styling and engineering that exceeds that of GM’s other brand offerings. Weld County Garage is the franchised dealer for GMC in Greeley and the dealership has been in business for over 100 years.
For 2016, the GMC Terrain has been re-styled to a certain degree and some changes were made such as new front and rear fascias, new grille, a power dome hood, LED daytime running lights, new wheels, a new gear selector, a second storage shelf under the dashboard, and the deletion of the door lock buttons from the dashboard. I’ve been a fan of Terrain styling since the introduction in 2010, and fortunately the company has kept the same basis look intact in this 2016 unit. My test Denali was painted what’s called Iridium, named after a dark, grey, brittle metal. I would call it a purple/charcoal, and it is attractive. The perforated leather interior with seating for five […]

2016 GMC Yukon XL Denali 4WD I recently had the opportunity to test the new 2016 GMC Yukon Denali XL, an Onyx Black Denali model, the unit that is one step up from the SLT and positioned atop the GMC Yukon lineup. Interior colors were Cocoa and Dark Atmosphere, incorporated into a perforated leather seating arrangement with Java Burl Poplar wood-grain inlays throughout. The XL had seven passenger capability, with three rows of seating – power heated buckets in the front and middle rows. The last two rows fold down with a power assist, leaving a flat, carpeted floor and over 121 cubic feet of cargo space.
The GMC Yukon XL has been around since 1935, existing as a body-on-frame SUV for all that time with some units branded as Chevrolets. Until the year 2000, the vehicle was named “Suburban”, and at this time it is in its twelfth generation configuration. The length of the 2016 Yukon XL, at 224.3”, is 2” longer than the eleventh-generation (2014) model – width is 80.5” and overall height is 74.4”. Weight of this Denali comes in at 5,775 lbs, and the styling attributes of the big GM SUV’s, which are now in their second year of production, are very popular, recording sales of 139,295 in 2014 – 30% of which were GMC-branded.
My test Denali had an M.S.R.P. of $75,720.00, including freight. Options on hand were a […]
