GMC has unveiled the all-new 2016 Terrain and Terrain Denali at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, boasting “a new, more contemporary front-end.”

Indeed, the new Terrain is significantly improved up front with a completely reworked front fascia, but it’s also greatly upgraded in the back. New features such as LED daytime running lamps, chrome accents, and a power dome hood make the new Terrain a standout in its class, and a number of safety and technology upgrades will give it a broader appeal for customers both new and old.

“Terrain is a popular choice in the growing compact SUV segment, introducing drivers to GMC’s professional grade design and features,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “The changes for 2016 provide consumers with even more reasons to consider Terrain as it continues to be a smart choice for customers seeking versatility, style and technology.”
