Unquestionably, the GMC Terrain has proven itself a hit with crossover SUV buyers. Straddling the line between what constitutes a compact and a midsize crossover, the 2015 Terrain supplies plenty of room for five people wrapped in a rugged-looking package. Plus, in Terrain Denali trim, it offers a long list of upscale upgrades at a comparatively low price compared to similarly sized models from luxury marques.
Last year, I reviewed the popular Terrain SLT. This year, I wanted to see if the Terrain Denali offered greater substance than the vehicle upon which it is based, or if this version amounted to no more than mere window dressing. The answer, as it turns out, is that the Denali model is a little of both.
