The Quintessential Denali

Shereen Shabnam

Denali, GMC’s premium luxury sub-brand, has driven much of the brand’s consistent growth in recent years by adding an elevated level of design and premium craftsmanship.

The 2022 Terrain Denali we drove is a small luxury SUV that takes bold design, premium materials and first-class comfort and versatility to the next level. We like the new exclusive Denali styling and the flexible, spacious cargo area and the very latest in entertainment and technology that made the drive seamless and comfortable.


As always, Denali offers the highest level of premium features in the cabin. Denali models now have an exclusive interior and feature a completely new instrument panel, unique seats outfitted with premium and authentic materials.

Some of the comfort driven features we found convenient included the Audio Controls on Steering Wheel, ABS (Anti-lock Brake System and the advanced heating and cooling features that kept us cool and comfortable driving in the summer.

The compact luxury SUV also offers standard navigation and advanced technology to stay connected to a world of information, communication and entertainment.

Intricate design details throughout the interior deliver unmatched Denali style. We liked the embroidered Denali logo in headrest, the comfortable seats and my 21-year-old loved the Bose 7-speaker system which produced premium sound for her bouts of loud singing moments.


The new Denali has a powerful stance and comes with exclusive features such as LED headlamps, 19” wheels and the multidimensional Denali grille.

The signature C-shaped lighting and headlamps provide brilliant LED light to help cut through darkness, while the stunning C-shaped lighting on the tail lamps complete Terrain Denali’s strong design from front to back

Adding fun and practicality to the journey on the road, the Terrain has gained popularity in the Middle East, GMC continues to strengthen its positioning as a SUV that delivers the perfect blend of fun and adventure drive capabilities.
