With the introduction of a completely new second-generation model last year, the 2019 GMC Terrain remains one of the leaders in the compact crossover SUV segment. With its popular, easy-to-navigate dimensions and luxurious features, Terrain is an all-in-one device that can challenge the need for something bigger. GMC may be known for its luxury pickups, but the Terrain reinforces the automaker’s role as a key player in the compact crossover segment.
In terms of exterior design, the 2019 GMC Terrain location continues with the same design that has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year and has been given a sleeker and more precise design with the new grille design and the revised C LED Daytime Running Lights. On the back there are redesigned LED taillights that give it a bolder look. The standard model runs on 17-inch wheels, the 18-inch wheels are optional. The Terrain top class uses unique 19-inch aluminum wheels.
The interior of the terrain has been slightly reduced by the new platform. Especially the longer passengers in the back seat may miss some headroom. In general, however, the cabin of the new 2019 GMC Terrain will remain almost the same. It is made of high quality, soft materials and is noiseless thanks to the standard active noise reduction. The rear seats can be folded up for more luggage space, which is generally pretty good. In the middle of the dashboard is a 7.0-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android auto connectivity.
The base engine 2019 GMC Terrain is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharger with a power of 170 hp and a torque of 203 pounds. The engine is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The next step is an optional 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharger that generates a torque of 252 hp and 260 lb-feet. The larger 2.0-liter engine is also connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both engines come standard with front-wheel drive, but can also be equipped with an all-wheel drive. When it comes to the fuel consumption of the two engines, the 1.5-liter engine is the first choice. Combined with the front-wheel drive, the engine is rated by the EPA to get 26 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway and 28 combined. The intensification of the 2.0-liter turbo leads to fuel savings of 22/28/24 mpg (city/highway/combined).
The 2019 GMC Terrain should arrive towards the end of 2018. When it comes to the price, it should be similar to the current model from about $ 25,000.
