Keep It Classy: 3 Reasons to Upgrade Your GMC to a Denali – Lexington, KY

If you’ve been shopping for a new GMC truck, SUV or crossover, you may have noticed the Denali line. With the Denali grille, wood-grain accents, lighted sill plates and more, this whole line just shouts LUXURY! The Denali nameplate is often used as a status symbol and is popular as a less costly alternative to the Cadillac Escalade. Not bad!

What you may have noticed first, however, is the price tag. At over 43% higher of an MSRP than the regular models, you may experience a moment of sticker shock. But this is because this line of GMCs are all luxury-branded and made to give you just that much more of a great driving experience. Let’s break it down the reasons to upgrade your new GMC to a Denali:

It Looks Fancy

In all seriousness, the Denali line of vehicles has a bunch of small aesthetic tweaks that make it gorgeous. Besides the tough-looking grills and wood-grain accents, the interior boasts such touches as a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with mahogany wood-grain trim and Color Touch Navigation Radio with IntelliLink4. Denalis even have unique seat trims and French stitching in all three rows (should you choose a model that offers this option). Clearly, this is not an ordinary truck.

It’s Got Power

If you pick a 2015 GMC Acadia Denali, know that it’s powered by a six-speed transmission, 3.6-liter V6 engine. It’s delivering 288 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and a torque of 270 at 3,400 RPM. Add the available All-Wheel Drive, and you have an SUV that’s hard to beat.

It’s Got Resale Value

Any vehicle you buy loses value over time as you very well know. But, over the long haul, the 2015 GMC Yukon XL Denali’s resale value is about the same as its competitors from Ford and Nissan. While you may be paying more for the luxury, you won’t lose your dough in the long run.
