About the 2018 GMC Terrain

The 2018 GMC Terrain is the smaller SUV model in GMC’s lineup. It offers a lower starting price point and higher fuel economy ratings than the Acadia, but it lacks the same amount of power and space inside that the Acadia has. The base trim of the Terrain offers standard features like keyless access, a 7-inch infotainment system, auxiliary ports, a rear vision camera, driver information center and more. It has up to 63.3 cubic feet of cargo space and a stop/start engine control system that helps improve fuel economy.
