Spy Shots—2018 GMC Terrain


This is the ’18 GMC Terrain getting in some last-minute testing before its NAIAS debut.

With the midsize Acadia largely occupying the space the current Terrain holds, GMC’s compact crossover (along with the similar Chevy Equinox) will become significantly more compact in order to compete head-on with the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape, among others.

The Terrain continues with a blunter nose that is in line with GMC’s styling of late. It also appears that it will be more truck-like than the Equinox, and has a different greenhouse with less of a negative rake going back. The beltline seems to follow suit with the recently debuted Acadia where it rises gradually toward the C-pillar. Unique LED strips up front also differentiate it from its platform sharing sibling.

Engines will more likely consist of the 2.5L four in the Terrain, and possibly a turbo four or small V6.
