Not every automaker can seamlessly blend stunning design, premium appointments, efficient powertrain, and cutting-edge technology into a compact SUV – but GMC can. Seven years after introducing the original Terrain, its first premium small SUV, GMC is proud to introduce the completely reinvented GMC Terrain – a vehicle that not only raises the Terrain name to new levels of style and sophistication, but sets a new hallmark for the GMC brand itself.
“GMC’s strong growth over the past decade is due in large part to Terrain, which introduced a new generation to this premium brand,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “The all-new Terrain builds on that success, leveraging GMC’s proven SUV experience to shake up one of the largest vehicle segments, with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”
The all-new Terrain’s bold exterior design signals the next chapter of GMC’s design language, evolving the brand’s signature cues with stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements such as the grille and lighting features. Its shape was refined in the wind tunnel to help ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air with optimal efficiency and quietness.
“It is a striking design with functional beauty,” said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design. “There’s confidence and optimism in its stance, with exceptional attention to detail that speaks to GMC’s rise as a premium brand.”
Elevating GMC’s new design, the all-new Terrain Denali will feature its signature satin chrome grille along with Denali-specific accents including body-color fascias and lower trim, plus chrome roof rails, door handles, side mirror caps and body-side molding. Additionally, LED headlamps and 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels are standard on Denali.
