2016 GMC Terrain Revealed with Mild Refresh

GMC is keeping its compact SUV fresh thanks to a slight facelift and some packaging revisions.

Styling on the 2016 Terrain, which makes its public debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show, has been lightly updated to keep it fresh thanks to new front and rear fascias, a new grille, an updated hood and LED running lights. Inside, a revised center stack is present in all models along with a new storage shelf and updated control graphics.

New chrome-accented grille designs are now available on the SLE, SLT and Denali models while aluminum 18- or 19-inch wheels can be had to complete the look. White frost tricoat and crimson red tintcoat have been added to the color palette.

The Terrain gets a new saddle up leather interior on the SLT trim, while a new light titanium/jet black color combo is available in the range-topping Denali. The eight-power adjustable seat from the Denali has now migrated down to the SLT model, as did available side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic alerts, which can now be had on both the SLE and SLT.

All of the vitals remain the same on the 2016 Terrain, which can be ordered with either a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a larger 3.6-liter V6 with 301 hp.

Technology available on the Terrain ranges from safety features like rear park assist, forward collision alert and lane departure warnings, to interior comforts like 4G LTE Wi-Fi and GMC’s Intellilink infotainment system.

The 2016 Terrain will hit dealer lots in the fall of 2015, with pricing coming at a later date.
