Looking for a small luxury SUV for sale in Michigan? The 2019 GMC Terrain may be just the ticket.
With the 2019 GMC Terrain, you can choose from the SL, the SLE, the SLT, and the Denali. There are three different turbocharged engines available for you to choose from including a turbodiesel option.
Your GMC Terrain gets a 1.5-liter, 2.0-liter, or you can choose the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine. The gas engines have a nine-speed automatic while the turbodiesel gets a six-speed automatic. If you decide to go with the larger 2.0-liter gas engine, you get a ton of power that lets you tow up to 3,500 pounds. You will get the front-wheel drive as standard, but you can choose all-wheel drive.
The interior of the 2019 GMC Terrain is spacious and comfortable with the ability to seat four adults and still have room in the back for all of your gear. You will get a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, active noise cancellation, and Bluetooth streaming. The base versions get 17-inch wheels.
The new version of the GMC Terrain comes with a sleeker look and a floating roof that means a less bulky vehicle than before. You have chrome-trimmed editions to choose from that allow you to accentuate the lines of the wheels, grille, and mirrors depending on how you want to customize your vehicle. The tail end of the Terrain is sculpted now, much like the Acadia. The running lights are set in a squared-off grille to keep the straight-edged bold look in the front of the vehicle. The roof pillar is backed out for the illusion of a “floating” roof and has a significant effect on the aesthetics of the vehicle.
The Denali adds more chrome to the 19-inch wheels and the bumpers that are the same color as the body of the vehicle. The interior of the Terrain is much sharper than previous years with more wood and luxury items that have been added for your comfort. The Denali trim adds some soft-touch material to enhance your comfort even more.
The base model (SL) comes with 17-inch wheels, active noise cancellation, cloth upholstery, rear seats that fold flat, the ability to connect devices by Bluetooth, keyless ignition, a steering wheel wrapped in leather, two USB ports, and a seven-inch touchscreen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The only major amenity that you will not be able to get on the base model is the choice of all-wheel drive.
As you go further up the line to the SLE and the SLT, you will see an increase in added features, but the top of the line is decidedly the Denali. This trim level starts at about $40,000 and gives you 19-inch wheels, leather upholstery, a power liftgate, LED headlights, parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, a steering wheel that is heated, and an eight-inch touchscreen with navigation.
The driver and front seat passengers get great legroom and hip room. There is 40.9 inches and 54.4 inches available respectively. The Terrain has power adjustable seats that can slide and recline in many ways.
There are a ton of in-car storage bins and cubbies. There is an exceptionally deep bin that is available for use in the center console that holds bulky items with ease.
When the second-row seats are up, the cargo space holds 29.6 cubic feet of gear. Fold down the second-row seats and available space is increased to 63.3 cubic feet.
There are three different turbocharged engines to choose from on the Terrain. Its nine-speed transmission gives it the extra boost to put it above the rest of the competition.
The base engine is a 1.5-liter turbo four that will give you 170 horsepower and 203 pounds per foot of torque. This engine is best suited to around the town driving.
The next in the lineup is the 2.0-liter turbo four that will give you 252 horsepower and 260 pounds per feet of torque. This only costs around $1,300 more than the base model and will provide you with a much stronger engine. When properly equipped, you will be able to tow 3,500 pounds.
Both of the gas engines come exclusively with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The transmission in the GMC Terrain runs smoothly at lower speeds and can even be kicked down through the gears to pull off steep mountain passes.
Moving onto the most intriguing engine, the 1.6-liter turbodiesel gives you 137 horsepower and 240 pounds per foot of torque. It is rated to tow 1500 pounds — less than the 2.0-liter turbo four. The diesel engine, however, gives you significantly better fuel economy and comes with a six-speed automatic.
The front struts and four-link suspension found in the rear of the vehicle help to navigate rough roads and the all-new electric steering assist will keep you heading in the right direction. The base models come with 17-inch wheels for a comfortable ride. The 19-inch wheels that come on the Denali are paired with a luxury suspension to afford you a smooth ride on them as well.
Standard on the Terrain are Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and a teen-driver feature for parents that have teenagers starting to drive. In addition to these features, you will have the option of choosing parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, a forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, active line control, and upgraded headlights.
