2011 GMC Acadia Denali-Front Seat View

According to a recent Auto & RV Publication’s article, GMC Acadia sales were up almost 45 percent in the first quarter of 2011. Although vehicle sales were very dismal last year, it is still a strong improvement in comparison to the industry. This only proves to drivers in Charlotte, Matthews & Monroe, NC that the 2011 Acadia and the 2011 Acadia Denali are hard to keep in stock. Fortunately, Liberty Buick GMC has ordered a variety of these popular SUVs to choose from.

“The big news for the GMC Acadia full-size luxury crossover in 2011 is the availability of a new, premium model – the Denali. GMC reserves the Denali treatment for its top-line offerings. The Acadia Denali is set apart visually by signature design elements, like body-color cladding, fender flares and moldings, and the chrome honeycomb grille, framed by high intensity discharge headlamps. Completing the look are chrome, dual exhaust tips, chrome accents and special badging. The Acadia Denali rolls on 20-inch two-tone, six-spoke chrome rims.”

Refinement is the name of the game for the Denali models, and most of that is obvious with the interior. “Slide into the perforated leather seats and the driver’s view takes in a leather-wrapped wheel with mahogany trim. A head’s-up display projects speed and a programmable variety of other information low onto the windshield.”

The article continues to praise GMC’s well-received SUV by saying, “Acadia’s popularity in a still-soft market is testimony to its versatility. It packs plenty of room for people and cargo into a comfortable space. Particularly in top-line, Denali trim, the GMC crossover is a handsome choice in a premium crossover.”

A few of the features that the article praised were: the two-stage sunroof system, with sliding front element and fixed glass rear section; heated and cooled front seats; 10-speaker Bose sound system; XM satellite radio; Bluetooth connectivity; and a rearview camera system. In addition, they said that “GMC’s controls are admirably straightforward, especially for the navigation/sound system combo.”

“Standard seating in Denali includes a pair of captain’s chairs in the second row and a split, folding bench in row three. So equipped, there’s ample room for any size adult in rows one and two. The third row is best suited to kids. While the second row seats can be moved forward to add to last row legroom, headroom is tight for taller folk in the way back, and getting in and out requires flexible dexterity,” the article continued to say.

Several other safety-related features include six air bags, disc brakes with ABS, electronic stability control system with reaction control and rollover mitigation. Acadia sits relatively low for a large crossover, which enhances handling stability and makes it easier to get in and out of the vehicle.

In all, the article gives a great review of the 2011 GMC Acadia and GMC Acadia Denali models. All of these impressive SUVs and other GMC models are available at Scott McCorkle’s Liberty Buick GMC in Charlotte, Matthews & Monroe, NC.  For more information on the powerful 2011 GMC Acadia, visit www.clickliberty.com, download the 2011 Acadia Brochure here, or call 888-306-1908.
