The Standard, Unique And Exclusive Features Of The 2017 GMC Acadia Denali: Feature Spotlight

2017-GMC-Acadia-Denali-exterior-First-Drive-001-720x340As we write this, GMC is launching the all-new 2017 Acadia midsize crossover across North America. There is quite a bit that’s new about the 2017 Acadia: it’s an all-new vehicle, it rides on GM’s all-new C1 platform, brings GMC into a new segment (by repositioning the nameplate), and also introduces the new Acadia All-Terrain model.

What isn’t new is the range-topping Acadia Denali model — since the trim level was offered on the outgoing, first-generation Acadia (that GMC will continue selling as the 2017 Acadia Limited). But since the 2017 GMC Acadia is an entirely new CUV, so are the features and equipment included or available in the Denali trim.

Below, we first look at the Acadia Denali’s two seating configurations, then highlight the features that are either exclusively standard or exclusively optional on the 2017 GMC Acadia Denali. We then identify those features that are either standard on the 2017 Acadia Denali and standard on other high-end trims of the 2017 Acadia, or are standard on the 2017 Acadia Denali and are available on other 2017 Acadia trim levels. Too confusing? Just check these lists.
