As you may know, the GMC Terrain presents one out of two front-drive-based models which have been offered in GMC’s otherwise body-on-frame lineup. It is quite similar to its nearest sibling Chevy Equinox; it has its general boxy shape, simply stunning and very reliable gas mileage in a four-cylinder form and pretty roomy inner part intended for its passengers as well a cargo. Since, the GMC Terrain, splendid SUV, has been present in a Global car market from the 2010, this second generation is intended to suffer only certain minor modifications, such as: a slightly refreshed exterior, an improvements regarding the inner part of a car, and some additional features as well as hi-tech ones are planned to come along, as well. Let’s have a bit better insight into 2016 GMC Terrain, shall we?
2016 GMC Terrain Interior, Exterior & Appearance
When it comes to the most visible refreshments regarding exterior of the new 2016 GMC Terrain, the vast majority of them are concentrated on Terrain’s front end, including here a brand designed grille and somehow reshaped hood. For higher trim levels, it is planned to be equipped with masterfully crafted LED daytime running lights. In order to boost the overall appearance of their beloved Terrain the GMC’s designers totally restyled the front and the rear fascias. We don’t know how you find these changes, but if you’d ask us for an opinion, we would say that we are more than delighted.
Anyway, the 2016 GMC Terrain will remain a five-seater and more than a fairly big one. It will be a typical family-oriented SUV, although some of the families wouldn’t even consider buying one, because it hasn’t got a third of the seats. We strongly disagree, we find newly made Terrain as a fantastic vehicle, with more than a plenty room in the cabin to accommodate up to four adults to sit quite comfortable with having more than enough space for all of their bodyparts. For all level trims, it is planned to come along with a massive and deep gear box, an armrest, storage that would be deep enough to put a small laptop. Regarding the rest interior improvements, its cabin will be styled with contrast to the macho-look sheet metal.
While a shield-shaped set of controls has been framed in a low-gloss metallic trim, all capped by a hood over the 7-inch touch screen that will run the standard Color Touch infotainment system, at the same time a center stack design will be slightly revised, and the guys from the GMC will change a bit some of the button graphics. Having all these minor refreshments and modifications of our mind, our, the most humble, opinion that GMC’s designers have done a terrific job! All credits for the amazingly good job, guys! Take a glance at the picture below!
Engine of the new GMC Terrain 2016
It is planned that this novelty from GMC comes along equipped with, slightly, wider range of the powertrain options. The base engine, the most likely, will remain to be a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which will be able to generate up to a 182 horsepower. Another one engine option that will be available for 2016 GMC Terrain is a 3.6-liter V6 powertrain option.
Certainly, it is going to be much more potent engine than the first one, its general strength has, already, been estimated at 301-horsepower. Both of these superb motors will be available, matched with a six-speed automatic and adjusted on a front-wheel drive mode. However, all-wheel drive mode will be available as an optional one.
2016 GMC Terrain Release Date & Prices
Although, the exact figures, regarding the price, aren’t available at this very moment, according our estimation, the base price for newly made GMC Terrain 2016 should start from $26,500 and go higher, depending of an exact opted trim level and selected equipment. The grand premiere is scheduled in this very fall.
A brand-new grille layout will establish the 2016 Terrain Denali apart from its forefathers, as will some nips and tucks to the front and rear fascia layouts, a brand-new “power dome” hood, and also debuting LED running lights. Additionally, the future year’s V6-equipped Terrain Denali is slated to sporting activity a collection of upgraded 19-inch blend wheels.
All the same, the traditional 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine is set up to continue to be standard in both FWD and also AWD variants of the Terrain Denali for 2016. Mated with the returning 6-speed shiftable automated transmission, this rather dull mill places out 182 hp as well as 172 lb-ft of torque, but mileage figures are expected to return at a wallet-friendly 22 mpg city/32 highway/26 incorporated in FWD variations, as well as 20/29/23 in AWD variations.
