Model Preview

The GMC Terrain will receive minor updates for the 2019 model year. Preliminary order guides show the most significant changes will involve updated appearance packages and revised safety features.

In terms of styling, expect to see practically the same vehicle as before given that the Terrain was redesigned just last year for the 2018 model year.

For 2019, a Terrain Black Edition will be introduced in SLE and SLT styles offering 19-inch gloss-black wheels, a darkened grille, black roof rails, black badging and more.

Alternatively, the SLT will offer an available Chrome Package with 19-inch machined wheels with painted gray touches, a unique chrome grille and numerous chrome accents.

Safety features will feature largely the same sort of technology found in last year's model. However, the Terrain will now offer an adaptive cruise control system that functions at all speeds with stop & go capability. It will be optional in both the SLE and Denali with the Driver Alert II Package.

Like the 2019 Equinox, one of the more significant features being added is pedestrian detection. Working together with the optional automatic braking system, it will be a first for the Terrain and will be available in all SLT and Denali styles.

In addition, the Terrain will gain a new high-definition rear camera for added confidence when backing up. It will be standard in SLT and Denali models and optional in the SLE. All other styles will get a standard definition camera just like the previous year. Interestingly, a new high-definition surround-view system offering 360-degree visibility will also be offered as an option in the range-topping Denali model as part of the Advanced Safety Package.

Under the hood, there are no major changes coming to the Terrain. As before, the base engine will be a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder making 170 hp and 203 lb-ft. Alternatively, a 2.0-liter turbo is available in SLE and SLT styles and comes standard in the Denali with 252 hp and 260 lb-ft.

Finally, like the Equinox, vehicle comes with a 1.6-liter turbodiesel option in SLE and SLT styles with 137 hp and 240 lb-ft and a highway fuel economy rating of up to 39 mpg.

Expect a full overview closer to launch.
