This premium variant showcases distinctive exterior trim and design elements, including unique accents, a signature Denali grille, and the option for all-new, colossal 22-inch machined aluminum wheels – the largest ever offered on an Acadia.
Inside, you’ll find a fresh interior design featuring an expansive panoramic sunroof that stretches from pillar to pillar, complemented by authentic laser-etched wood embellishments adorned with Galvano chrome accents. The front seats are appointed with perforated leather and equipped with both heating and ventilation, while the available second-row outboard seats also offer heating functionality. This attention to detail elevates the Acadia Denali to an unparalleled level of luxury and comfort.
