"TURBO" emblem added to Denali

I like the SLT and SLE emblems on the rear quarter glass of terrains but ours is a denali and has no badge in that space.. amazon to the rescue.. $6.99 very nice raised chrome metal "turbo" badge... What do you think?

Just curious but if you liked the SLT and SLE emblems why not get an actual DENALI emblem? The turbo just looks out of place JMO.

Yep, could have gone that route as well but there's other "denali" badging on the car... I liked the "turbo" badge and it added 3 lbs. of boost! Had to check w/ the wife first and she'd be the 1st to say if it was gawdy, she likes it.

The side of the Terrains already have a Denali badge so another Denali would be redundant. The factory badging is part of the front door chrome trim piece.

The lettering is sort of hard to read since the whole piece is chrome, lettering and all. I wish that GMC had used body color lettering in the inlays, like what they used on the door handles. The "Denali" would stand out more. And provide a small reduction to the overuse of chrome.

True I forgot about the door trim. When I dipped the chrome the letters do pop a little more but yeah GM failed with the badging when you look at all other Denali models.

I think most would think it came that way if they didn't know. The badges came with 3m double sided adhesive with cutouts for all the holes in the lettering so you can't see the backing after it's put on the car. I probably should have waited until summer to put them on but I did warm the sheet metal up w/ a hair dryer first and prepped the surface to remove any dirt or wax. I hope they stay stuck. If anyone else wants them I'd be happy to share the amazon SKU. PS: I really like your dipped accents reptilekeeper

Looking good tic. Was also wondering why the Denali doesn’t have an engine badge. The Equinox has one and the Cadillac as well. I went with the “2.0 T” emblem that’s on the Cadillac and the Camero. I put it up front higher up. I think it looks good. See the pic.

I like the 2.0T badge. It's classier than what I did.
