The GMC Pro Safety package (this is the first we’ve ever heard GMC reference the Pro Safety name, by the way) will be standard on all trim levels for the crossover and will include the following:
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Forward Collision Alert
- Lane Keep Assistance with Lane Departure Warning
- Following Distance Indicator
- Front Pedestrian Braking
- IntelliBeam Headlamps
In addition, customers can add an extra layer of safety to the crossover by ticking the box for the optional Driver Alert Package, which includes camera-based Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist and Safety Alert Seat. If you add the Driver Alert Package to a range-topping 2020 GMC Terrain Denali model, you will also get Front Park Assist in addition to Rear Park Assist.
GM faced questioning over its lack of standard active safety features in its vehicles during its Q2 earnings call this past week. The automaker does not offer standard active safety features on many of models and lags behind brands like Honda, which includes them on even its most basic models, such as the Civic.
Company CEO Mary Barra said the company is “committed,” to offering standard active safety tech across its entire vehicle portfolio, but said it is only including it on vehicles in certain segments right now.
There are few other small updates made to the 2020 GMC Terrain as well. The Terrain Black Edition has been renamed the Terrain Elevation Edition, but receives no other changes over the 2019 model. The Denali Premium Package, meanwhile, now combines the Advanced Safety Package and Comfort Package to include camera-based adaptive cruise, ventilated driver and front passenger seats and heated rear seats. The Terrain Denali also gets a new premium suspension with different internal valves for a more refined ride, as we reported previously.
Pricing for the 2020 GMC Terrain has not yet been announced.
