GMC has arrived in New York City with a refresh of its popular Terrain crossover, following the mild refresh of the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox. The facelift will hold the model over until an all-new Delta platform based Terrain and Equinox shows face sometime for the 2017 model year.
In the meantime, though, the 2016 GMC Terrain adds a handful of new safety equipment to match its updated looks. General Motors’ Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems will be available on mid-range SLE and SLT models for the first time and the vehicle’s center stack updated control graphics and a new storage compartment just below the infotainment screen, along with a chrome-trimmed gear selector
The exterior looks are subjectively much better looking. The front fascia sports what seem to be chiseled cheek bones, giving it a newfound resemblance to larger sibling GMC Acadia. The rear sees a similar style, with a pronounced chrome-trim strip outlining the lower tailgate. We think the Terrain wears its new looks much better than the outgoing style.
