The Terrain was added to GMC’s lineup 8 years ago, but up until this point, it had never undergone any significant redesign. Following the introduction of the next-generation Acadia, however, the Terrain underwent a similar transformation. The redesigned GMC Terrain is now lighter, smaller – and more powerful than ever. Now with a range of three different turbo engines, including a turbo-diesel option, the Terrain is set to wow buyers with its new look and capabilities.
The more sculpted and sleek exterior design reflects the new styling cues in other members of the brand’s vehicle lineup and marks the beginning of GMC’s next era of design philosophy. But those new, contemporary looks aren’t limited to the outside. With more luxurious materials used in making the interior, as well as more innovative and versatile seating, the GMC Terrain was designed to offer both comfort and capability from the inside out.
Of course, the fun part of the redesigned GMC Terrain lies under the hood. Two gasoline engines will be offered – a 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter option – as well as 1.6-liter turbo-diesel option. These engines will be paired with a new nine-speed automatic gearbox and are said to significantly boost fuel economy in the new Terrain. Specific numbers aren’t yet available regarding fuel ratings and horsepower, but that information will become available when the new Terrain’s launch draws near.
