Redesigned 2018 GMC Terrain Debuts At 2017 NAIAS

GMC took the opportunity to present the completely redesigned 2018 GMC Terrain at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. Needless to say, the new design was a big hit with the fans in attendance. Many in the automotive press also found themselves impressed.

Design

Henry Payne, of The Detroit News, made a few remarks that got to the heart of the new design’s appeal, “Shedding nearly 500 pounds, the turbo-4 powered Terrain should ride as good as it looks.”

He’s right. This is one good-looking small SUV. It features a bold and redesigned grille, C-shaped wraparound LED signature lighting and is also available with 19-inch wheels.

Power

The redesigned 2018 GMC Terrain comes available with your choice of three, count’em three, turbocharged powertrains. There’s the efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder. The more powerful 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder pumps out 252 horsepower. There’s also a turbocharged diesel four-cylinder option.

Variety

The Traction Select will return again — naturally. Available now on the 2017 model, this system lets you pick different driving modes to match road conditions. You can choose Off-Road, Snow, Sport, or Trailer/Tow.

The redesigned 2018 GMC Terrain is competing in an awfully crowded segment, but should benefit from the early exposure it got at the 2017 NAIAS.
