2018 GMC Terrain Denali 2.0 AWD First Test: Shifting Debate

The 2018 GMC Terrain is bursting on the scene with some fresh changes. They changed the center console adding a new sleek way to hold your beverages. The shifting will be done through a series of buttons. The Terrain is fast enough to go 0-60 in 6.8 seconds, which is impressive for a vehicle weighing at 3,848 lbs. The new terrain also is more quieter with reduced wind and road noise.

Key Takeaways:

  • GM has gone for a row of buttons on the center stack of the instrument panel, freeing the space in the center console for side-by-side cupholders to avoid any confusion as to which latte is the driver’s.
  • Some of the Motor Trend staff appreciate the effort to do something different.
  • Mated to a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4, the four-cylinder produces 252 hp at 5,500 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 2,000-4,000 rpm.

“It is quieter with reduced wind and road noise. It is well-planted with little body roll on the handing course.”
