GMC could be known for its luxurious pads, but 2019 GMC Terrain reinforces the automaker’s role as a major player in the compact crossover segment.
Exterior and Interior
For the second generation version, GM has brought a more interesting style, better aerodynamics, lighter 2019 GMC Terrain and a little smaller. The compact crossover migrated to the global brands of the D2XX platform, which offers much better structural rigidity and associated with reduced weight and improved driving experience. The model also unloaded 460 pounds of weight compared to the previous generation, but also shortened the wheelbase by 5.2 inches and lost 3.2 inches in length. It has also adopted a more expressive style and a carefully carved body associated with specific exterior elements of the mark leaves the visual impression stronger than its previous form. The model has the most elegant version of the grid characteristic of the brand and is distinguished by very accentuated headlights. The sculpted bonnet and softer transitions combined with the floating rear upright also enhance the previous design. The different finishing accents in each lining also add a unique sense of design to the variants.
As on the outside, the 2019 GMC Terrain will keep the same shape inside while a regrouping and additional equipment will be made.
