Just like the new Chevy Equinox, the Terrain will be able with a range of new turbocharged engines.

You'll notice that the 3.6L V6 is now gone. If you are interested in the new 1.6L diesel, it generates 137-hp and 240 lb-ft.

There are also new nine-speed automatic transmissions for the gas engines and the Terrain comes standard with the a Traction Select system, which offers for different driving conditions. AWD models feature a FWD mode that disconnects the AWD system to minimize drag and optimize fuel economy.

The Terrain features 7- and available 8-inch-diagonal infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality and a standard OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Every new Terrain comes standard with five years of the OnStar Basic Plan.


To keep you safe, the 2018 Terrain is available with a range of new safety technologies, like Surround Vision, Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and a new Safety Alert Seat.
