The all-new redesigned GMC Terrain boasts more style, performance choices and safety features than the previous model year. This ride will appeal to anyone searching for a compact SUV that combines quality with modern edge.
Perhaps the most obvious update of the 2018 Terrain is the bolder exterior design. This year’s model enters the scene with a striking, more aerodynamic body. The grill and lighting elements are more sculpted and streamlined. All trim levels include LED daytime running lamps and tail lamps for a modern touch.
Select the Denali version to experience top-of-the-line luxury. Unique to this trim are body-color lower trim and fascias as well as chrome detailing that manifests itself in the form of door handles, roof rails, side mirror caps and body-side molding. These features combine for a contemporary profile that will turn heads no matter where you travel.
Smarter and stronger performance options
The 2018 GMC Terrain has a variety of powertrains to satisfy different needs. The model year includes three new turbocharged engines. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, this SUV churns out a healthy dose of power and a pleasing rate of acceleration. Choose the Denali trim for optimum force. Outfitted with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder VVT Turbo engine, this version stuns with a substantial 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The new Electronic Precision Shift technology features an electric gear selector to expand storage space in the center console. The Traction Select system adjusts throttle response depending on driving mode. Models equipped with all-wheel drive have a front-wheel drive mode that turns off AWD to improve fuel efficiency by minimizing the vehicle’s drag.
Extended safety perks
The 2018 GMC Terrain steps up protective defenses with a host of new safety features. Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking enhances stopping capacity when the vehicle is traveling at low speeds. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning helps the driver stay alert and maintain a centered position within lane lines.
Blind spots aren’t a problem with the Surround Vision technology. The Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator improves the driver’s awareness of oncoming obstacles and automatically adjusts the vehicle’s distance when it senses it is too close to the car in front.
Confident looks and superior functionality are yours with the 2018 GMC Terrain. With the latest safety and technology features, this compact SUV will stun you speechless with its wide range of perks.
