2018 GMC Terrain Starts at $25,970 MSRP; Terrain Denali Starts at $38,495 MSRP
GMC crossover sales were up 20% at retail in April and are up 15% at retail through the first four months of 2017 thanks to the appeal of its current lineup. That appeal is expected to grow only more so this summer with the launch of the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain. Today, the brand revealed that the next-generation Terrain will start at an MSRP of $25,970, including $975 destination charge but excluding tax, title, license, dealer fees, and optional equipment.
“Terrain helped define the premium compact SUV segment and the all-new 2018 model elevates it with a stronger roster of standard and available features,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “GMC’s proven SUV experience makes it a more compelling choice than ever, with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”
The 2018 GMC Terrain is being offered in four different trims: SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali. The aforementioned $25,970 MSRP is for the base Terrain SL with front-wheel drive, which is standard with a new 1.5-liter turbocharged engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and features such as keyless open and start, Traction Select system, and signature LED daytime running lamps and taillamps. Every version of the 2018 Terrainwill be offered with five years of OnStar Basic, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and access to OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot through an AT&T data plan.
The Terrain SLE will start at $28,795 for FWD and $30,545 for AWD, while the Terrain SLE Diesel—equipped with the all-new 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine—will start at $32,565 for the FWD version and $34,315 for the AWD version.
The Terrain SLT FWD starts at $32,295, Terrain SLT AWD starts at $34,045, Terrain SLT Diesel FWD starts at $35,140, and Terrain SLT Diesel AWD starts at $36,890.
The range-topping 2018 GMC Terrain Denali will start at $38,495 for the FWD model and $40,245 for the AWD version. The most opulent of all GMCs, the Terrain Denali will be offered standard with 2.0-liter turbocharged engine; 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels; LED headlamps; eight-inch infotainment system with navigation; Bose premium seven-speaker audio system; and a comprehensive suite of cutting-edge safety features including Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Safety Alert Seat.
GMC says that models equipped with the 2.0-liter engine are expected to lead off the launch, followed by the 1.5-liter and 1.6-liter turbo-diesel models.
