GMC’s compact crossover is getting a mid-cycle refresh for the coming year. The prototype of a completely camouflaged 2021 GMC Terrain has been captured testing a couple of days back and based on spy shots. We can conclude that the SUV is going to receive a series of cosmetic changes, particularly on its ends. Also, a word from the street declares that the updated model might show up paired with a new engine and transmission, along with upgraded infotainment.
2021 GMC Terrain Design
Although the heavy camouflage conceals virtually whatever we’ve managed to determine what’s cooking beneath. Truth to be told, the job wasn’t too hard since the grille under the camouflage sports oval shape. It indicates that the refreshed 2021 Terrain hosts a Sierra-based grille– the very same one that got the mid-size 2020 Acadia not so long earlier. In addition to the more appealing and larger grille, the front end gets new square-shaped LED headlights and upgraded bumper with new fog lights. At the rear, the compact crossover will host a set of Acadia-like taillights and nothing more. Those trapezoidal exhaust suggestions in the back suggest that we’ve been dealing with a more powerful Terrain– most probably with the topping Denali trim which will be fitted with a new engine option.
2021 GMC Terrain Engine
According to our trusted source, the 2021 GMC Terrain will utilize the all-new LSY turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rather of the existing 252-hp 2.0-liter LTG alternative. We have no idea how effective the new mill is going to be. However, we are pretty sure that LSY brings some additional power and much better effectiveness. The entry-level 1.5-liter engine will be carried over without any doubt; it’s going to be pretty much the same case with the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel, though, the oil-chugging mill will most absolutely switch from 6- to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
2021 GMC Terrain Features
In addition to updated infotainment, new upholstery, and slightly reworked control panel, the new cabin will probably come paired with more standard devices. For instance, the car producer will not forget to include the current Rear Camera Mirror with no doubt.
2021 GMC Terrain Debut
Evaluating by the most recent reports, the revitalized 2021 GMC Terrain will be presented in early 2020, so it ought to hit showrooms next spring or summertime. Because it’s going to show up upgraded just, the compact crossover SUV will most likely keep the base cost unchanged.
