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.
Moving on to the Acadia, the Black Edition is only offered in the SLT trim level. This model will be sitting on a set of 20 inch wheels with black accents. Similar to the Terrain, it gets a dark grille and matching surround. Around the body, surrounds a black trim as well, from the headlights and taillights, side mirror caps, and roof rails. Customers can get the Acadia in Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, White Frost Tricoat, Dark Sky Metallic, and Smokey Quartz Metallic.
Overall, the Black Editions would easily stand out from the standard model with the darkened exterior, chrome bits, and unique Denali appearances. It simply offers more choices to lineups as well. GMC’s precision and craftsmanship is the answer to customers’ demand for greater vehicle personalization.
The outgoing versions of the Terrain and the Acadia are both new to the market. In particular, the newest Acadia actually arrived for the 2017 model year. This gives buyers an option of getting a 2.5 liter four cylinder that produces 193 horsepower (143 kilowatts) or a 3.6 liter V6 with 310 horsepower (231 kilowatts). Meanwhile, the outgoing Terrain made its debut for the 2018 model year, offering a 170 horsepower (127 kilowatts) 1.5 liter turbocharged four cylinder, 2.0 liter turbo four with 252 horsepower (188 kilowatts), or 1.6 liter turbodiesel with 137 horsepower (102 kilowatts).
GMC is currently expanding offerings of its premium SUV lineup with models like the 2019 Terrain as well as the Acadia. Now offering them in the Black Editions. Both models were built on the bold road presence that already defines the popular SUVs with sculpted, athletic appearances.
