    • The Denali features real wood trim with laser etchings. It also gets lots of real leather and fancy stitching. Naturally it gets all the interior goodies such as the 11-inch instrument display (8-inch is standard on lower trim Canyons), 11.3-inch infotainment screen and GMC-exclusive head-up display. The AT4X loses the wood, but it gets a bold black and white interior with bright red accents all around.
    • These new screens enable the truck to provide drivers with up to 10 different camera views, including HD Surround Vision and waterproof underbody cameras with a washing system.
