2011 GMC Acadia Denali news, pictures, specifications, and information

The 2011 Acadia Denali - The First Denali Crossover Ever

• GMC is extending its exclusive Denali line to include the highly successful Acadia brand that defined the crossover §egmènt

• The all-inclusive Acadia Denali is the ultimate combination of space and efficiency wîth top-of-the-line amenities

• Signature Denali cues include the honeycomb grille, chrome accents, body-color fascias and fender flares, mahogany wood §teering wheel and wood accents, and lighted sill plates


Today GMC unveiled the 2011 Acadia Denali in Detroit. The first Denali was launched in 1999 on the Yukon brand and helped define the luxury SÚV §egmènt. With nearly half of all Yukon sales being Denali models, expanding the Denali line to include the Acadia was a logical extension. Acadia Denali will provide GMC customers wîth all the amenities the Denali is known for in a fuel-efficient crossover.

'The GMC Denali models have come to stand for luxury and exclusivity, and that's just what customers will get in the new Acadia Denali,' said Lisa Hutchinson, GMC product marketing director. 'The decision to develop an Acadia Denali was made quickly within the new GM in response to customer and dealer demand for a Denali version ever since the launch and success of the Acadia.'

The Acadia launched in 2007 as the first crossover from GMC, wîth §egmènt-leading fuel economy and innovative features. An exclusive SmartSlide System allows easy access to an adult-sized third row wîth available seven- or eight- passenger seating configurations. Fold-flat second- and third-row seats allow flexible passenger and cargo configurations of the best-in-class interior space. Acadia's refined styling, impressive fuel efficiency, and confidence-inspiring safety features made it an immediate success and ideal platform to build upon for a Denali model.

The 2011 Acadia Denali goes on sale in the third quarter of 2010. It is available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models, as well as seven- and eight-passenger configurations. The standard 3.6L direct injected V-6 contributes to an EPA highway rating of 24 mpg wîth FWD models.

The Acadia Denali will stand out wîth its signature Denali design cues highlighted by the mono-color exterior and chrome honeycomb grille, a feature on all GMC Denali models. It also wears a number of specific exterior design cues, including:

• Únique lower front and rear fascias

• High-intensity discharge headlamps

• Body-color lower cladding and rocker moldings

• Body-color rear fascia and fender flares

• Únique body-side moldings wîth chrome accents and Denali badges

• Dual chrome exhaust tips

Further distinction comes wîth 20-inch, two-tone chrome-clad wheels. The six-spoke wheels feature black chrome spoke inserts set against bright chrome.

The Acadia Denali is offered in five exterior colors: Quicksilver Metallic, Summit White, Carbon Black, Red Jewel Tintcoat and White Diamond Tricoat.

GMC capability

Acadia Denali is powered by a 3.6L direct injection V-6 engine wîth VVT that optimizes performance and fuel economy, while also reducing emissions – including a 25-percent reduction in cold-start emissions. Engine performance is enhanced by the advanced six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The maximum towing capacity is a class-leading 5,200 pounds (2,364 kg).

A long, 118.9-inch (3,021 mm) wheelbase and wide 67.28-inch (1,709 mm) front/rear tracks give it a lower center of gravity and enable smooth, stable ride and handling for driving comfort. Independent front and rear suspensions enhance smoothness and deliver a more responsive driving experience. The front suspension features a MacPherson strut design, wîth a direct-acting stabilizer bar and aluminum knuckles, while the rear suspension uses a compact, state-of-the-art linked 'H' design. Isolated mounting points help reduce noise and vibration.

The suspension is tuned specifically for the Acadia Denali's 20-inch wheels and the available AWD system enhances dry-road handling and provides increased traction on wet, snow and ice-covered roads. Four-wheel disc brakes wîth ABS are standard, as are the following features:

• StabiliTrak electronic stability control system wîth rollover mitigation technology

• Traction control system

• Tire pressure monitoring system

Acadia Denali is covered by GM's five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty and three-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty – the best coverage in America.
