2016 GMC Terrain
Compact SUVs are hot, and GMC is out to make the segment even hotter with the introduction of its redesigned Terrain. The 2016 version features a lightly redesigned exterior with new front and rear ends, including new lower chrome trim, a new "power dome" hood design and a chrome-accented grille on some models.
On the inside, the center stack instrument panel has been redesigned with a new storage shelf and updated control graphics. Premium cloth seat fabric is now standard on less expensive models, and new leather upholstery is available on the SLT trim level. The five-seater also features GM's MultiFlex sliding rear seat, which offers 31.6 cubic feet of cargo behind it or 63.9 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.
There are two engine choices: a 2.4-liter direct-injected four-cylinder that gets 32 highway mpg and a 3.6-liter, direct-injected V-6 that has a best-in-class 301 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available on higher trim levels; towing capacity is up to 3,500 pounds on V-6 models. Optional features include a programmable power liftgate and collision prevention technologies, including an alert that warns of cars in the blind spot or behind the vehicle.
Sale date and pricing have not been announced. The 2015 GMC Terrain starts at $24,070.
