Last year, GMC entirely overhauled the Terrain, dropping its length by 3 inches and reducing its weight by an outstanding 400 pounds. This was, naturally, on top of its all-new looks and powertrain choices. Due to the fact that these changes are all still fresh, we expect no significant updates to the 2019 GMC Terrain.
Visually, we anticipate the 2019 Terrain will be practically indistinguishable from the existing model. We could see a couple of small updates here and there, like a couple of new colors, wheels and choices. The exact same chooses the interior, as its style should remain consistent but its features, like the infotainment system and colors, may see a few changes.
We anticipate everything under the hood to remain the exact same. If this shows real, try to find the 2019 Terrain to come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horse power and 203 pound-feet of torque.
Optionally, buyers have the ability to choose a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, for those trying to find top-of-the-line fuel economy, we anticipate the 1.6-liter diesel motor with 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque to stay an option. The current Terrain comes standard with front-wheel drive, however shift-on-the-fly all-wheel drive is offered. Gasoline versions use a nine-speed automated transmission, while the diesel uses a six-speed automated.
The IIHS hasn’t tested the 2018 Terrain just yet, however its previous generation got “Good” crash tests rankings in all tests, but it failed in other areas, including its “Poor” score in the headlight test and a “Basic” score in the front crash avoidance test. We anticipate all the changes in the new-generation Terrain to fix these problems, scoring it a minimum of a Top Safety Pick score.
While there is no official release date for the 2019 Terrain, we anticipate it to get here in the very first quarter of 2018. Official prices should see very little boosts relative to the existing MSRP range of $25,990 to $40,295 (location fees consisted of). Secret rivals will include the Chevy Equinox, Honda CR-V, and Mazda CX-5.
