GMC has announced the Middle East arrival of the 2019 Terrain, which is packed with more available advanced safety technologies than ever before. The available Driver Alert Package 2 on the Terrain has been enhanced with Front Pedestrian Braking. To help make it easier for the driver to park and maneuver in low-speed situations, HD Rear Vision Camera has been made available on the 2019 Terrain, while the Surround Vision feature is now standard exclusively on the Denali models.
GMC offers customers the widest range of choices yet, with two available turbocharged propulsion systems. Two efficiency-enhancing nine-speed automatic transmissions are matched with the two turbocharged engines. Stop/start technology is featured on all systems
Denali boosts the 2019 Terrain with great exclusivity, offering a distinctive range-topping design and uniquely refined features.
Bold, modern design
The Terrain’s bold exterior evolved the brand’s signature cues with stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements such as the grille and lighting features. Its refined shape in the wind tunnel helps ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air with optimal efficiency and quietness.
Elevating GMC’s design, the 2019 Terrain Denali will feature its signature satin chrome grille along with Denali-specific accents including body-color fascias, lower trim and door handles, plus bright roof-mounted side rails, and chrome outside mirrors and body-side molding. Additionally, LED headlamps and 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels are standard on Denali.
All other models feature signature LED running lamps and tail lamps. Bi-functional HID headlamps are standard on SLE and SLT. Additionally, 17-inch wheels are standard on SLE, with 18-inch wheels standard on SLE AWD, and standard on SLT.
Turbocharged propulsion choices
A range of two turbocharged gas engines, including the 1.5L and 2.0L turbocharged gas engines, matched with two unique nine-speed automatic transmissions. The 2.0L turbo engine offers stronger acceleration and a higher degree of performance than its 1.5L counterpart.
GMC’s Electronic Precision Shift enables large storage room in the center console with electronically controlled gear selection consisting of intuitive push buttons and pull triggers.
The 2019 Terrain comes standard with GMC’s driver-controllable Traction Select system, which has choices for different driving conditions. Elements such as the throttle responses are optimized for the selected driving mode. AWD models include a FWD mode that disconnects the AWD system to minimize drag and optimize fuel economy, while the AWD mode offers all the benefits of an active AWD system.
Refined, versatile and purposeful interior
Like the exterior, the 2019 Terrain’s interior makes a statement and serves as a fundamental component of the vehicle’s heightened emphasis on refinement and functionality. Elements such as authentic aluminum trim, soft-touch materials on the instrument panel and doors and standard active noise cancellation are premium features seamlessly integrated into the interior design for a luxurious customer experience.
The Terrain Denali heightens the GMC experience throughout the interior with a unique trim tint color and Denali-specific logos and piping on the front seats. Denali customers will benefit from additional standard features including ventilated front seats, Skyscape power sunroof, Bose premium 7-speaker sound system and a hands-free programmable power liftgate.
An expanded center console with pass-through storage underneath adds to the Terrain’s functionality. A fold-flat front passenger seat and flat-folding rear seat help Terrain offer greater versatility for stowing longer items and make it easier to load cargo. There are also under-floor compartments in the cargo area for secure storage.
GMC keeps passengers connected with 7-inch and available 8-inch-diagonal infotainment systems, featuring compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
Expanded range of safety features
An expanded range of available active safety technologies is designed to enhance driver awareness and even help make it easier to park and maneuver in low-speed situations. The features include radar and camera-based adaptive technologies that can provide alerts to potential crash threats, allowing the driver to react and make changes to potentially avoid them, including:
- HD Rear Vision Camera
- Surround Vision
- Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator
- Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Safety Alert Driver Seat
- Following Distance Indicator
- Front Pedestrian Braking
In addition to six standard air bags, including frontal driver and passenger, roof rail-mounted head curtain (for front and rear outboard seat) and thorax side-impact air bags (for front seats), the 2019 Terrain features GMC’s innovative Rear Seat Reminder. Rear Seat Reminder alerts drivers to check the back seat as they exit their vehicles under certain circumstances. The system alerts when the second-row doors are opened before the vehicle is started
Presented in 11 exterior colors including the new Blue Emerald Metallic, Sedona Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic, the 2019 GMC Terrain is now available at GMC dealers across the Middle East.
