January 31 2017,
Since introducing the Terrain back in 2009, GMC has sold more than 700,000 units of its compact SUV. No question about it, the Terrain is a popular vehicle, but it was due for a refresh. Enter the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain unveiled at the North American International Auto Show this year. Featuring a brand new and bolder design to go along with impressive connectivity and safety features as well as plenty of powerful and efficient engines to choose from, the new GMC Terrain is certainly a compact SUV worth waiting for.
The 2018 GMC Terrain will be offered with three new engines
There will be plenty of engines to choose from for buyers interested in the new 2018 Terrain. The base engine will be a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that offers 170 horsepower and 203 lb.-ft. of torque available at low RPMs. This engine will be paired with a standard nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Buyers looking for more power can turn to the Terrain’s available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 252 horsepower and an impressive 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Like the base engine, the 2.0-liter is paired with a nine-speed auto transmission.
If torque is your main priority, you can turn to an all-new turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that offers 137 horsepower. As is usually the case with diesel engines, torque will be this engine’s main selling point is it will send an impressive 240 lb.-ft. to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive will be optional, and drivers can adjust the 2018 Terrain’s driving dynamics using four distinct driving modes.
The 2018 GMC Terrain is chalk full of safety and connectivity technologies
Thanks to the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technologies, the new 2018 GMC Terrain will offer a seamless connection between your mobile phone and the SUV’s infotainment system. Moreover, owners will get a host of comfort and refinement features in each of the Terrain’s three available trims: SLE, SLT and Denali.
Outside, a bold design featuring muscular lines give the impression that the new 2018 Terrain is a lot bigger than it actually is. In the city, parking assistance systems like a rear-view camera or the optional a peripheral vision camera make it easy to drive around in tight spots and park.
Active safety technologies such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, automatic braking, and rear cross-traffic alert will ensure that both you and your family are safe.
