Spy Shots: Upcoming Small GMC Crossover to Slot Beneath the Terrain
— Bradshaw Automotive (@BradshawGreer) August 14, 2018
New spy shots seem to indicate that GM will soon release a new crossover. As contributor Alex Luft with GM Authority shares, this model should slot just under the brand’s current smallest model, the Terrain. This new offering could sport the name Granite, Anthem, Graphyte, or Tribute. These are four of the names that GM recently filed trademarks for.
Various sources on Twitter couldn’t help spreading the exciting preliminary shots of this futuristic styled auto. For GMC fans that have been craving a version of the Terrain that’s a bit more compact, this unnamed addition should suit.

Despite the camouflage coverings, the model hints at similar design cues to the Terrain. Note the straight-cut lines of the DayLight Opening surround, and a similar D-pillar style. The license plate cutout mounts to the liftgate and rear bumper cover. The cutline extends downward from the roof, then wraps around the taillights.
The new crossover is expected to incorporate a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed or nine-speed automatic; though it might possibly include a CVT. The model should also boast standard front-wheel drive, with optional all-wheel drive, as the long front overhang seems to indicate.

Best estimates seem to agree on a 2020 model year release at the soonest. Look for this crossover to debut during auto show season at the beginning of 2019.
We anticipate more news about this anonymous crossover in the days ahead, as we wait for GM to reveal its official name and identity. Whatever name the brand decides on, however, this model promises to feed on the success of GM’s current crossover and SUV lineup.
