DETROIT -- The GMC Terrain, for its first redesign since arriving eight years ago, is dropping more than 180 kilograms (400 pounds) and getting a trio of smaller, turbocharged engines, including a diesel.
The Terrain’s new styling marks the “next chapter of GMC’s design language,” General Motors said ahead of its unveiling at a Detroit art museum on Sunday. The compact crossover retains a distinctive profile while gaining a more sculpted and aerodynamic appearance.
On the inside, designers added aluminum trim, soft-touch materials on the doors and instrument panel, and fold-flat seating for greater cargo-carrying versatility. An electronic shifter and new under-floor compartments behind the rear seat also increase storage capacity.
