Gurnee GMC Dealer

The new 2018 GMC Terrain is taking the compact crossover world by storm. The latest GMC model for sale is doing what experts thought was impossible: offering a highly efficient, super functional, fun-to-drive crossover with just the right amount of luxury at a price point that’s truly practical.


Here’s a breakdown of all the things we love most about the 2018 GMC Terrain for sale now at Anthony Buick GMC:

 

  1. A freshly upgraded powertrain that doesn’t break the bank.
The 2018 Terrain crossover’s makeover began under the hood, where the previous model’s 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6 engines have been replaced by a trio of turbocharged engines, including a diesel variation. The new Terrain comes standard with a 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 170 horsepower and 201 lb-ft of torque. A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission (with an output of 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque) is also available now.

 

  1. An even more robust, clean ride.
The new Terrain sheds approximately 350 pounds of the previous models’ weight and features a body that’s over 30% more rigid to help boost the car’s aerodynamic abilities. The changes help make sure the 2018 GMC Terrain can handle hilly, rough terrain with grace.

 

  1. Best-in-class fuel economy.
The new Terrain may have bumped up its torque and horsepower capabilities, but that doesn’t mean the vehicle’s fuel economy has suffered. Using standard start-top technology, the Terrain produces efficiency numbers that will impress even the most skeptical shopper. Front-wheel-drive 1.5-liter Terrain models received an EPA rating of 26 city/30 highway for a combined 28 mpg. The 2.0-liter models received a 22/28/24 mpg rating while the diesel-equipped iteration has a mind-blowing rating of 28/39/32.

 

  1. New tech tweaks.
The new 2018 GMC Terrain comes with a whole suite of advanced tech upgrades, including gorgeous exterior HID headlights and LED signature lighting along the front and rear headlamps. Inside, drivers will enjoy the Terrain’s new standard Electronic Precision Shift tool, which replaces a conventional gear shifter with a futuristic button and switch component.

 

  1. Freebies and extras galore.
The new Terrain starts at just $24,995, which is already quite a steal. But that’s not all–the vehicle comes standard with a ton of safety features (like following distance indicator, automatic braking and forward collision alert), hot new tech tools (like smartphone integration, multiple USB charging ports and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot) and a stellar 6-speaker sound system.
