Prices for the 2018 GMC Terrain have been finally announced by the automaker. Going on sale this summer, the compact crossover's price tag starts from $25,970 to more than $40,200, after a $975 destination charge.
The compact crossover first debuted at the Detroit Auto Show last January, and it will arrive in dealerships this summer. But one noticeable thing about this crossover is that it shrunk by about 3.2 inches or around 8.13 centimeters. Its new platform has contributed to its 465-pound weight loss of its lightest version.
At launch, the only available engine is the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, delivering 252 horses, which will be exclusive to the 2018 GMC Terrain Denali, however. But a 1.5-liter turbo four and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel will be added to the lineup later, according to GMC.
Both gas engine models will be mated to a nine-speed automatic with the controversial gear selector design, while the diesel to a six-speed automatic. Front wheel drive or all wheel drive will depend on the trim level.
Buyers have the option to choose between SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali for the 2018 GMC Terrain. The base SL is only available in FWD and has a price tag of $25,970. So if buyers prefer the AWD, they'd better head straight up to SLE trim that starts $30,545.
Under the hood of the SLE trim is Chevy's new 1.6-liter, turbocharged diesel I4. However, FWD SLE diesel is priced at $32,565 and goes up to $34,315 if buyers opt for the AWD.
Meanwhile, the 2018 GMC Terrain SLT starts at $32,295 with FWD and $34,045 with AWD. But buyers can opt for the diesel by adding $2,845. It comes with standard heated leather front seats, an 8-inch infotainment system, additional chrome exterior accents, 110-volt power outlet, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The fanciest trim level is the 2018 GMC Terrain Denali that starts at $38,495 for the FWD and goes up to $40,245 for the AWD. There is no diesel here, however. But this trim level brings buyers all the goodies such as heated steering wheel, unique interior trim, hands-free power liftgate, navigation, power passenger seat, and standard safety which comprises Safety Alert Seat, rear park assist, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.
You can head out to your nearest dealerships this summer for the 2018 GMC Terrain. For reference, the only vehicle closely related to this compact crossover is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox which has a starting price of $24,475 and is already on sale
