GMC is famous for producing some of the most powerful working vehicles on the road today. Of course, if you want access to some of that power for a lower price, then you may want to look at the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain. Not only is the Terrain GMC’s most affordable SUV model, it’s receiving some major upgrades for 2018, making it even more luxurious and powerful. Refinement and raw power have combined to deliver one of the most versatile vehicles in the industry.
Moving forward with power
If there is one thing that GMC vehicles are known for above all else, it would have to be power. The 2018 Terrain is no exception to this rule. The GMC Terrain rolls in with a standard 1.5-liter, four-cylinder VVT Turbo engine. When coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain is able to produce 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, drivers can tap into even more power by opting for the available 2.0-liter, four-cylinder VVT Turbo engine. This engine can produce 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Pure power is nothing without safety. This is precisely why GMC has equipped the Terrain with safety features like StabiliTrak and Traction Control, to make any tough job just a little bit safer.
The lap of luxury
Few automotive brands can boast providing both performance and refinement to customers. GMC is one of those few brands, with the 2018 GMC Terrain serving as an ideal example. The new Terrain comes standard with luxurious amenities like a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls. Higher trims only add to that refinement, with features like heated driver and front passenger seats.
Technology can also make a vehicle more refined. This is why some of the standard features on the 2018 GMC Terrain include the likes of a rear vision camera and a 7-inch GMC Infotainment System. Of course, for the best features of all, the Denali trim of the Terrain is a must. It includes some of the most advanced safety systems around, like Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as more entertaining amenities, like HD Radio.
For a GMC model that won’t break the bank, yet will still provide the power that you’re looking for, you can always look forward to the 2018 GMC Terrain.
