2019 GMC Acadia and Terrain are now available in Black Editions

GMC’s new Terrain and Acadia will be receiving dark suits for the 2019 model year in the Black Edition variant. The new SUVs not only will get a dark exterior trim, but this will be complemented by some glossy black highlights. This unique package will go on sale this summer, but we do not know yet how much it will be priced.

If you were wondering, the Black Edition package will be available on the Terrain’s SLE and SLT grades of the SUV. What comes with this package is a set of 19 inch gloss black wheels with five sets of dual spokes. Up front, the grille gets a dark insert and matching surround.

The exterior is adorned with black trim, from the side mirror caps to the roof rails. If black is not your favourite colour, there is no need to worry as you do not have to get the Black Edition in black, or what GMC refers to as the Ebony Twilight Metallic. Other available colours for the exterior include Summit White, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, and Sedona Metallic.

Pricing starts at $25,970 for 2018 GMC Terrain

General Motors crossover retail sales grew an impressive 20% last month, and recorded a 15% hike for the first 4 months of this year thanks to the performance of today's GMC line-up. Its sales are anticipated to further increase around summer with the launching of the brand new 2018 GMC Terrain. Now the American automaker has officially announced the pricing details of its upcoming crossover.

After 9 years on the market, GMC has finally decided to revamp its two-row Terrain, considered to be a slightly swankier variant of the Chevrolet's Equinox. The given price tag will get you the base SL model, which boasts of features such as proximity key with push button start, a leather covered steering wheel, LED taillights and daytime running lights. The next-gen Terrain will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $25,970, which includes the $975 destination charge. Terrain SL is equipped with a turbocharged 1.5 L 4-cylinder engine that will produce around 170 hp delivered to the front wheels by a 9 speed automatic transmission.

Those who prefer all-wheel drive will have to dish out $28,795 for the special luxury edition (SLE) trim. This option will require an additional $1,750 to the standard price. By choosing the SLE, buyers get the turbo-diesel 1.6 L engine that is paired with a 6 speed automatic transmission. Its 137 hp diesel inline 4 forces a solid 240 lb-ft of torque, a hugely impressive feat. However, it costs an extra $3,770 to get the SLE. The price rises to $34,315 if buyers opt for the AWD unit.

2017 NAIAS: GMC introduces 2018 Terrain with fresh new design and more engine options

We’re not at all surprised after GMC introduced an all-new 2018 Terrain at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. To start with, the compact crossover is considered to be one of the brand’s best sellers. Since it has been ages since it was initially launched, there could never be a much better time for a change. Yes, finally, after eight long years, the crossover had its much needed facelift. GMC added not just one but three new turbocharged engines on the line-up. The interior has also been redesigned to match the new look of the exterior.

It’s very different from its sibling (the Chevrolet Equinox) even if the two are currently sharing the same platform. What GMC brought to the North American International Auto Show is a stunning compact crossover with swept back design, floating pillar and sloping roofline. By all means, the 2018 Terrain is a much sleeker version than the current model we have at the moment.

If we have to compare the latest with the current version, the length of GMC’s 2018 Terrain is shorter by 3.2 inches while its wheelbase is also shorter by 5.2 inches. As a result, the cargo space has decreased a little bit. But since the rear seats have been elevated while the back seats have been lowered, the total storage space has somehow increased from 29.6 to 63.3 cubic feet.

GM announced today that the 2013 GMC Terrain Denali will cost $35,350, including an $825 destination charge. For these money you will get a long list of of advanced safety features but also the fuel-efficient 2.4-liter I-4 engine and front-wheel drive. For those who want more, GMC offer optional all-wheel drive and raises the base price to $37,100.

A more powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine is available for $1,500. The cost of the V-6 also includes an upgrade from 18- to 19-inch chrome-clad wheels. This engine replaces the 2012 Terrain’s 3.0-liter V6 and delivers 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. According to the official press release, this engine is mated to GM’s 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission and will return a fuel economy of 16 mpg city /23 mpg highway for the all-wheel-drive version.

The 2.4-liter engine will offer a fuel economy of 17/24 mpg. As we said, the vehicle comes with plenty of safety features, such as include forward collision alert and lane departure warning, as well as Denali-exclusive side blind zone and rear cross traffic alert.

General Motors has revealed that the 2013 GMC Terrain crossover, which will be available for sale this fall, will have an upscale Denali trim level as well as a more powerful and bigger V-6 engine. The move is part of GMC's plan to expand the Denali to all the automobiles in its range. The new engine displaces 3.6 liters. It is rated at 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque.

This engine replaces the 2012 Terrain's 3.0-liter V-6, which is rated at 264 hp and 222 lb-ft of torque. The new V6 will still be matched with GM's 6T70 six-speed automatic transmission. The automaker explained that even with the larger engine, the 2013 GMC Terrain will have a fuel economy of 16 mpg city /23 mpg highway for the all-wheel-drive version and 17/24 mpg for the front-drive variant. This is the same fuel economy as the 2012 V-6 model.

For the base versions of the Terrain, the automaker will continue to utilize the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. GMC dealers have revealed that they cannot meet the customer demand for the Terrains with the four-cylinder engine. In the last two months, the automaker has limited dealer orders for the four-cylinder variants of the Terrain as well as the mechanically similar Chevrolet Equinox, according to the report of Automotive News.

Due to increasing popularity of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers with four-cylinder engines, General Motors is having problems keeping up the supplies with the high demand. For two months, GM has been forced to restrict dealer orders for 2.4-liter four-cylinder vehicles, which account for a majority of Equinox and Terrain sales.

The restriction has prompted several dealers to order more 3.0-liter V-6 models than they would have preferred amid the surging fuel prices. Jim Cain, GM spokesman, confirmed that the company has placed "temporary order limits" on four-banger versions of the Equinox and Terrain.

"It's a function of a strong industry, a hot vehicle and very robust demand for the four-cylinder model," Cain said, adding that the company is working with its suppliers to increase deliveries of key components to meet demand. GM already informed its dealers that the shortage is temporary, although it did not specify when it expects the problem to be solved.

General Motors’ Denali line of upscale GMC trucks is being expanded to accommodate the Terrain crossover, which is its most in-demand vehicle at present. Sources say that GM wants to release a Denali version of the Terrain this year as a 2013 model. Last year, terrain sales increased by 37% to 83,179 --the largest gain among the seven nameplates of GMC.

A GM spokesman opted not to comment if GM intends to add a Denali-trim version for the Terrain or other GMC models. GM is undertaking this move to even reap more success from the top-trim Denali line. In fact, GM global marketing chief Joel Ewanick considers this lineup to be such a thriving one that he calls it “a brand within a brand.” For several years, the Denali badge was only offered for the GMC Yukon SUV, Sierra 1500 light-duty pickup and the Envoy SUV, which was discontinued in 2009.

GM’s 2011 model lineup was expanded with a Denali version of the GMC Acadia full-sized crossover and Sierra heavy-duty pickups (the 2500 and 3500). These added versions aided in boosting sales of Denali-badged vehicles by 79% last year. They also contributed to GMC's overall sales going up by 19%.

General Motors has announced the recall of over 36,000 units of the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain small crossovers around the world. GM is tasked to fix the tire pressure monitoring system in these cars. The automaker said that due to this defect, the driver may not be informed when the tire pressure drops below federal standards. In a statement, GM said that underinflated tires can lead to overloading and overheating, which could result to a blowout and possible crash.

When tires are prematurely worn out, it could result to poor handling and fuel economy. Almost 34,000 of the vehicles covered in this recall are in the U.S. The remaining cars are spread out in Canada, Mexico and six countries located in the Middle East. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the vehicles were made between July 18 and Sept. 6 of 2011.

A warning light is supposed to show when the tire pressure is 25% lower than the recommended levels for cold tire pressure. In these vehicles being recalled, the warning light only turns on when the tire pressure has fallen more than 25% below recommended levels.

Combining General Motors’ eAssist (a new light electrification system) with a very fuel efficient four-cylinder engine enabled the automaker to set a new fuel economy record for two sedan segments. This simple but highly advanced tech system resulted to extensive fuel economy improvements with minimal added costs.

Several GMI sources said that GM has lined up two of its most successful crossovers to have electric versions. It was also revealed that GM will use the eAssist on the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers. These two crossovers will become electrified for the 2014 model year and will use the system featured on the existing eAssist sedans. Initially, GM had intended to delay electrifying the small utes until their next redesign scheduled for the later part of the decade.

But GM changed its decision and now moves for the current eAssist to be used earlier, according to GMInsideNews. The reason for making this change is related more to manufacturing than fuel economy. When the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu would be launched exclusively with the eAssist system, GM believes that there will be major drop in the demand for the eAssist variant (named Malibu Eco) as soon as the car’s all-new 2.5-liter engine goes on sale later in 2012 as it is a cheaper option.

GMC talked about the safety benefits provided by StabiliTrak with traction control technology, which is offered as standard on the 2011 GMC Terrain. GMC dubs this safety feature as the “control freak” as it is an advanced, computer-controlled system that helps with directional control in hard driving conditions.

StabiliTrak is activated once the computer senses a difference between the intended path and the direction that the vehicle is traveling. To help steer the vehicle in the right direction, StabiliTrak may apply braking pressure to the brakes or it may reduce the engine power.

These moves occur in milliseconds without requiring any driver input. Performance integration engineer Bret Dick, who helped develop StabiliTrak, said, “The best crash is the crash you avoid." He said that active safety systems such as StabiliTrak with traction control are meant to keep the GMC Terrain on the road while avoiding spinouts.

General Motors has issued the recall of 111,136 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX vehicles, which are all from the 2011 model year. GM discovered that the seat belt buckle anchors are weak and may fail to perform as required in case of a crash. To date, there have been no reported injuries or deaths related to this defect.

In a press release, GM said that these vehicles were fitted with a seat belt buckle anchor with cracks that may lead to a fracture if the buckle is rotated in a certain way.

In a crash, this may contribute to peak seat belt loads. GM added that if the buckle anchor separates, the risk of injury increases as the seat belt system will no longer be able to restrain the occupant in a secondary impact.

To ease the shortage of Chevrolet Equinoxes and GMC Terrains, the Canadian Auto Workers has proposed a plan for General Motors Co. to build the models in Oshawa, Ontario.

North American President Mark Reuss said that to make more crossovers that are currently being assembled in Ingersoll, Ontario, GM may add production or reopen plants.

After emerging from bankruptcy, GM was left owning two idled plants that don'´t have plans for products: Spring Hill, Tenn. and Janesville, Wis. CAW President Ken Lewenza suggested that GM intensify its crossover production at Oshawa, located about 125 miles from Ingersoll.

General Motors Co.'s dealers, frustrated by low supplies of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, probably will have to wait until midyear for a typical 60-day supply of the crossovers, GM sales chief Susan Docherty said last week.

On Jan. 1, GM had a 13-day supply of the Equinox and an 18-day supply of the Terrain. The 2010 Equinox was redesigned last June and the 2010 Terrain was launched in August.

In early September, Docherty said that she had believed, along with her team, that the industry will have a comeback at the back half of the year, she disclosed in an interview at the Detroit Auto Show.
