Canadian release date for the 2018 GMC Terrain
Regular readers of the Don Wheaton Blog will know that General Motors is pretty committed to redesigning its fleet of crossover SUVs. Under the GMC umbrella, the compact GMC Terrain is taking center stage for the next model year. Don Wheaton customers waiting for the Canadian release date for the 2018 GMC Terrain will be getting a nearly brand new vehicle. The exterior has been boldly styled with a strong eye kept on fuel-saving aerodynamics and a new suite of engines is available which will promote excellent fuel consumption scores as well as performance. General Motors is scheduled to begin first deliveries of the 2018 Terrain this summer, likely making it one of the first new models to arrive at the Edmonton-based dealership.
“GMC’s strong growth over the past decade is due in large part to Terrain,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of global GMC Sales and Marketing said in a press release. “The all-new Terrain builds on that success, leveraging GMC’s proven premium SUV experience to shake up the largest vehicle segment, with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”
Will the 2018 Terrain offer a diesel engine?
Compact crossover SUVs like the 2018 GMC Terrain have to be able to be operated as efficiently as possible to be successful in this highly competitive class. Later in the production cycle of the 2018 Terrain, Don Wheaton customers will be able to choose a turbocharged, 1.6-liter, diesel engine. Models arriving in the Edmonton-based dealership will come with a choice of a turbocharged 1.5- or turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. As of right now, it appears that the 2018 GMC Terrain will not be available with a V-6 engine.
Figures for how much power the engines will make when the 2018 GMC Terrain arrives on its Canadian release date have yet to be released. The Don Wheaton blog will update this information as it becomes available.
