    GM Reveals 2018 GMC Terrain

    GMC Introduces Modern, Bold Design on 2018 Terrain
    Confident appearance, accommodating interior and turbo engines elevate new premium compact SUV
    General Motors

    January 8, 2017



    DETROIT — GMC today introduced the all-new 2018 Terrain and unveiled the next chapter of GMC design via a boldly styled and intelligently engineered successor to the brand’s popular compact SUV. The Terrain offers greater refinement and versatility to adapt to customers’ unique needs, and it’s packed with more available advanced safety technologies than ever before.

    GMC offers customers the widest range of choices yet, with three all-new available turbocharged propulsion systems, including a new turbo-diesel. Two new efficiency-enhancing nine-speed automatic transmissions are matched with 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 with 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 SUV experience to shake up the largest vehicle segment, with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”

    The 2018 Terrain goes on sale this summer 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 design

    The new Terrain’s bold exterior signals the next chapter of GMC’s design language, evolving the brand’s signature cues with 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 with optimal efficiency and quietness.

    “It is a striking design with functional beauty,” said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design. “There’s confidence and optimism in its stance, with 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 with 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, with 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 with two unique new nine-speed automatic transmissions, with 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 with electronically controlled gear selection consisting of intuitive push buttons and pull triggers.

    The Terrain comes standard with 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 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 with 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 steering wheel, navigation, Bose premium 7-speaker sound system and a hands-free programmable power liftgate.

    An expanded center console with 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 with 7- and available 8-inch-diagonal infotainment systems, featuring compatibility with 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 with the industry-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 Terrain comes standard with five years of the OnStar Basic Plan[1] 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 with Following Distance Indicator
    • New Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
    • New Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
    • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
    • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
    • New Safety Alert Seat

    The new Terrain also features GMC’s new Rear Seat Reminder[2] and Teen Driver[3]. 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.

    Re: GM Reveals 2018 GMC Terrain

    This one is gonna take a while to grow on me. I really like the 1st gen Terrain and there are a few styling choices that I really don't care for. Overall I don't think it's repulsive, just not my cup of tea.

    Also, if that manumatic mode depends on just those two buttons above and below the 'L' setting, I'm calling shenanigans.

    Push button transmission & a USB-C charge port are in there. The front end will have to grow on me, but overall, I like it.

    Who the hell is going to hit buttons on the lower dash board to toggle between gears? I hope it has flappy paddles that are just invisible or something.

    It grew on me really quickly. I like the SLT better than the Denali.

    Re: GM Reveals 2018 GMC Terrain

    It will sell because it is a mainstream crossover.....but I'm not impressed at all.

    The only thing weirder than the front end is the convoluted push button transmission.

    I'm not seeing any paddles. Lincoln at least includes paddles in their push-button vehicles.

    I'll have to see it in real life, I don't hate it but I feel like all the design elements are cobbled together vs. being a cohesive whole.

    It's growing on me....very slowly. As others have pointed out, it doesn't look like a cohesive design. It just appears to be an accumulation of design elements from a number of different cars.

    It looks good, not great. It looks to me like it should...it is a GMC version of the Equinox...not an exact twin, but you can see they are close.

    The floating roof/ invisible C pillar needs to go.

    Re: GM Reveals 2018 GMC Terrain

    At least now there's distinct differences in the Terrain and Equinox interiors. Not sure I like The tranny push buttons. The "L" shifting is odd. I'm sure 99.9% of owners never use the L anyway.

    Consumer site is live.

    Hilariously enough I think the SLE trim looks best. Tones down all the chrome.
