Top 5 Reasons We’re Excited About the 2018 GMC Terrain

For years, the GMC Terrain has been an anchor in the automaker’s lineup thanks to the vehicle’s beautiful design, highly-efficient powertrain, and remarkable tech components. The 2018 Terrain model is no exception. After seven years, the Terrain is finally receiving a makeover that raises it to levels of sophistication and style that set a new standard for the entire brand.

“GMC’s strong growth over the past decade is due in large part to [the] Terrain, which introduced a new generation to this premium brand,” Duncan Alfred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, said in a recent statement. “The all-new Terrain builds on that success, leveraging GMC’s proven SUV experience to shake up one of the largest vehicle segments with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”

With so much to love about the 2018 GMC Terrain, it’s hard to know where to look first. Here are the top 5 things Matteson GMC dealers are most excited to see in the new Terrain:

  1. Outstanding design.

The new Terrain isn’t afraid to be bold. The vehicle features a sharper, more sculpted exterior with a new grille and lighting features that reflect the Terrain’s new hyper-modern aesthetic.

“It is a striking design with functional beauty,” Helen Emsley, executive director of Global GMC Design, told reporters. “There’s confidence and optimism in its stance, with exceptional attention to detail that speaks to GMC’s rise as a premium brand.”

  1. Supercharged powertrain options.

All 2018 GMC Terrains for sale will be available with a range of three all-new turbocharged engines: a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel, a 1.5-liter turbocharged gas engine, and a 2.0-liter turbocharged gas engine. The gasoline engines are paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

  1. A sophisticated, versatile interior.

The inside of the 2018 GMC Terrain delivers just as much visual impact as the exterior while offering a big dose of comfort and versatility at the same time. New fold-flat passenger and rear seats create extra cargo space while components like GMC’s 8-inch-diagonal infotainment system will keep even the pickiest teen happy.

  1. Best-in-class technology.

Out of all of the 2018 GMC models near you, the new Terrain is guaranteed to have the most up-to-date tech suite.

  1. Safety features galore.

The Terrain’s newly expanded range of safety features includes Surround Vision, Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and more.
