2018 GMC Terrain news, pictures, specifications, and information
GMC introduced the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain and unveiled the next chapter of GMC design via a boldly styled and intelligently engineered successor to the brand's popular compact SÚV. The GMC Terrain offers greater refinement and versatility to adapt to customers' unique needs, and it's packed wîth more available advanced safety technologies than ever before.

GMC offers customers the widest range of choices yet, wîth three all-new available turbocharged propulsion systems, including a new turbo-diesel. Two new efficiency-enhancing nine-speed automatic transmissions are matched wîth the gas engines - a first application for the GMC lineup.

Continuing the momentum of owning 25 percent of GMC's overall retail sales, Denali returns to the Terrain wîth greater exclusivity than ever, offering a distinctive range-topping design and uniquely refined features.

'GMC's strong growth over the past decade is due in large part to Terrain,' said Duncan Aldred, vice president of global GMC Sales and Marketing. 'The all-new Terrain builds on that success, leveraging GMC's proven premium SÚV experience to shake up the largest vehicle §egmènt, wîth a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.'

The 2018 GMC Terrain goes on sale in summer 2017 in SL, SLE, SLT and Denali models, maintaining the momentum created by the first-generation model, of which more than 700,000 have been sold in North America since it went on sale in 2009.

Bold, modern designThe new GMC Terrain's bold exterior signals the next chapter of GMC's design language, evolving the brand's signature cues wîth stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements such as the grille and lighting features. Its shape was refined in the wind tunnel to help ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air wîth optimal efficiency and quietness.

'It is a striking design wîth functional beauty,' said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design. 'There's confidence and optimism in its stance, wîth exceptional attention to detail that speaks to GMC's rise as a premium brand.'

Elevating GMC's new design, the all-new Terrain Denali will feature its signature chrome grille along wîth Denali-specific accents including body-color fascias and lower trim, plus chrome roof rails, door handles, side mirror caps and body-side molding. Additionally, LED headlamps and 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels are standard on Denali.

All other models feature signature LED daytime running lamps and tail lamps. Bi-functional HID headlamps are standard on SL, SLE and SLT. Additionally, 17-inch wheels are standard on SL and SLE, wîth 18-inch wheels available on SL and SLE, and standard on SLT.

Turbocharged propulsion choices

A range of three all-new turbocharged engines, including an all-new 1.6L turbo-diesel, provides more choices when it comes to performance, efficiency and capability in the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain. New 1.5L and 2.0L turbocharged gas engines are matched wîth two unique new nine-speed automatic transmissions, wîth the 2.0L turbo engine offering stronger acceleration and a higher degree of performance than its 1.5L counterpart.

GMC's new Electronic Precision Shift enables more storage room in the center console by replacing the conventional transmission shifter wîth electronically controlled gear selection consisting of intuitive push buttons and pull triggers.

The GMC Terrain comes standard wîth GMC's driver-controllable Traction Select system, which has choices for different driving conditions. Elements such as the throttle responses are optimized for the selected driving mode. AWD models include a FWD mode that disconnects the AWD system to minimize drag and optimize fuel economy, while the AWD mode offers all the benefits of an active AWD system.

Refined, versatile and purposeful interior

Like the exterior, the new GMC Terrain's interior makes a statement and serves as a fundamental component of the vehicle's heightened emphasis on refinement and functionality. Elements such as authentic aluminum trim, soft-touch materials on the instrument panel and doors and standard active noise cancellation are premium features seamlessly integrated into the interior design for a luxurious customer experience.

The Terrain Denali heightens the GMC experience throughout the new interior wîth a unique trim tint color and Denali-specific logos and piping on the front seats. Denali customers will benefit from additional standard features including a heated §teering wheel, navigation, Bose premium 7-speaker sound system and a hands-free programmable power liftgate.

An expanded center console wîth pass-through storage underneath and side-by-side cupholders adds to the Terrain's functionality. A new fold-flat front passenger seat and flat-folding rear seat help Terrain offer greater versatility for stowing longer items and make it easier to load cargo. There are also new under-floor compartments in the cargo area for more secure storage.

GMC keeps passengers connected wîth 7- and available 8-inch-diagonal infotainment systems, featuring compatibility wîth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality and a standard OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (data plan purchase required after limited trial period) that can accommodate up to seven mobile devices. Owners can also manage their vehicles remotely wîth the -leading myGMC mobile app via their compatible smartphones. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are subject to their terms, privacy statements and data plan rates, and require a compatible smartphone.

Every new GMC Terrain comes standard wîth five years of the OnStar Basic Plan at no additional cost. Among other benefits, this connectivity plan features OnStar Smart Driver, an opt-in service designed to help GMC owners maximize their vehicle's overall performance, reduce wear and tear, monitor fuel efficiency and become better drivers - all factors that add to the overall ownership experience.

Expanded range of safety features

An expanded range of available active safety technologies is designed to enhance driver awareness and even help make it easier to park and maneuver in low-speed situations. The features include radar- and camera-based adaptive technologies that can provide alerts to potential crash threats, allowing the driver to react and make changes to potentially avoid them, including:
•New Surround Vision
•New Forward Collision Alert wîth Following Distance Indicator
•New Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
•New Lane Keep Assist wîth Lane Departure Warning
•Lane Change Alert wîth Side Blind Zone Alert
•Rear Cross Traffic Alert
•New Safety Alert Seat

The new Terrain also features GMC's new Rear Seat Reminder and Teen Driver. Rear Seat Reminder alerts drivers to check the back seat as they exit their vehicles under certain circumstances, while Teen Driver allows parents to set controls and review an in-vehicle report card in order to help encourage better driving habits, even when adults are not in the vehicle.
