Exterior Design, Colors

Without any doubts, the new 2016 GMC Terrain SUV will be even more brawny and handsome once it arrives on the market. The first and for some people the most significant change is the color update. We will be offered some new Metallic shades, including Sapphire Blue and Cypress Green, and two new colors: Crimson Red Tintcoat and White Frost Tricoat. Besides the changes in terms of colors, the new model also arrives with revised hood. The rear and front fascia of the vehicle have also been changed and revised. You will notice chrome accents on the front and rear fascia now. There will also be LED daytime running lamps and three-bar grille common for General Motor Co. Brand-new 18-inch aluminum wheels will be available for SLE and SLT models, while 19-inch wheels are available in Denali trim level.

Interior Styling

The newcomer appears to be loaded with innovative technology and, of course, it has a great number of convenience and comfort features for its drivers. The SLE models boast premium cloth. Chrome-trimmed gear selector is present in all trim levels. In simple terms, the 2016 GMC Terrain is a perfect package with its innovative technologies including OnStar8 with 4G LTE connectivity and excellent safety features. Smaller tweaks to the design and style of the vehicle like new upholstery and high-quality materials make this vehicle to look more luxurious and snazzy than its predecessor.


Engine, Specs, Performance

In terms of engine choices, the vehicle arrives unchanged and it will offer a 2.4L petrol engine with four cylinders and a 3.6L V6 unit. With the first engine option you will be able to get the output of 182 horsepower, while the second engine produces the maximum power around 301 horsepower. In order to maximize the control of the driver there is an all-wheel-drive system available as an optional extra. AWD provides additional traction and adapts torque according to the conditions on the road. Of course, there is also a front-wheel-drive as a standard feature in five-seat Terrain. A standard 6-speed transmission is still there as well and it probably won’t be changed before revised 2018 model arrives on the market.


This mid-size SUV can accelerate from naught to 62 meters per hour in only 6,7 seconds, and this verifies the claims of the company that the vehicle will be a true perfection in terms of performance. The compact SUV utilizes the latest technology in order to improve fuel efficiency. Simply put, it gives you power just when you need it and helps you to keep the vehicle in control regardless of road conditions. The 2016 GMC Terrain has a 4-wheel independent suspension which ensures smooth and steady ride with exact feel for the road. In case the vehicle doesn’t respond to steering commands there are StabiliTrak senses which adjust wheel speed and brake to help you keep the control.
