Last year, GMC totally upgraded the Terrain, dropping its length by 3 inches and decreasing its weight by an excellent 400 pounds. This was, of course, on top of its brand new appearances and powertrain choices. Due to the fact that these changes are all still fresh, we expect no substantial updates to the 2019 GMC Terrain.
Aesthetically, we expect the 2019 Terrain will be essentially indistinguishable from the present model. We might see a couple of small updates here and there, like a couple of new colors, wheels and alternatives. The exact same goes for the interior, as its style ought to remain consistent however its features, like the infotainment system and colors, may see a couple of changes.
We expect whatever under the hood to remain the exact same. If this proves real, try to find the 2019 Terrain to come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque.
Optionally, buyers have the ability to select a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Finally, for those looking for state-of-the-art fuel economy, we anticipate the 1.6-liter diesel motor with 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque to remain a choice. The present Terrain comes standard with front-wheel drive, but shift-on-the-fly all-wheel drive is available. Fuel versions use a nine-speed automated transmission, while the diesel uses a six-speed automatic.
The IIHS hasn’t evaluated the 2018 Terrain just yet, but its previous generation got “Good” crash tests ratings in all tests, but it failed in other locations, including its “Poor” rating in the headlight test and a “Basic” ranking in the front crash avoidance test. We anticipate all the changes in the new-generation Terrain to repair these problems, scoring it a minimum of a Top Safety Pick rating.
While there is no main release date for the 2019 Terrain, we anticipate it to get here in the very first quarter of 2018. Official prices should see minimal boosts relative to the present MSRP variety of $25,990 to $40,295 (location charges consisted of). Secret competitors will include the Chevy Equinox, Honda CR-V, and Mazda CX-5.
