2018 GMC Terrain Review: In a Blizzard of Small SUVs, GM's Fancy Baby Looks to Stand Out

  2018 GMC Terrain Review: In a Blizzard of Small SUVs, GM's Fancy Baby Looks to Stand Out Plusher and more powerful than the typical small SUV—but will Honda, Nissan or Chevy buyers give this outlier a shot?With the sky upchucking snow at more than two inches per hour, snuffing the Manhattan skyline view from the Brooklyn Bridge, I guided the Terrain north, up the Hudson River and away from drivers who fell back on New York’s inexplicable winter technique: bunching up in dangerously tight packs, turning on emergency flashers, and then hitting the brakes or spinning out, all for no apparent reason. And, naturally, driving at 20 or 25 miles per hour on roads where Europeans—blessed with winter tires and a modicum of driving skill—would be doing 55, easy.

The new Black Edition will offer specific content on compact Terrain SLE and SLT trim levels, and midsize Acadia SLT. The main feature of the Black Editions is the darkened exterior treatment that, GMC research found, is the main aftermarket modification new SUV buyers (roughly 20%) make to personalize their vehicles after purchase.

GMC Terrain Scores Aero Touchdown

Terrain vs. Acadia : Which GMC SUV Is Right for You? General Motors’ GMC brand has built a reputation on delivering comfortable, practical SUVs with upscale flair, including the GMC Acadia midsize SUV and the GMC Terrain compact SUV.

GMC is the latest to join the fray with its 2019 Acadia and Terrain special editions. Until then you can crank up Black Dog, Black Night , or your favorite Black Sabbath album. Here’s last year’s model above in white for comparison—doesn’t it look so 2018?

“The new Terrain and Acadia Black Editions perfectly capture the identity of the GMC brand by offering a bold and confident exterior appearance,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “They give our customers more choices within the premium SUV segment to distinguish their vehicle and themselves.”
