2018 GMC Terrain comes with “floating pillar” at NAIAS image

GMC has kicked off the teasing game for the upcoming new generation 2018 GMC Terrain, which is going to present itself in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

While the model shares the overall architecture with the brand new Chevrolet Equinox, the crossover from GMC appears to be quite different – which is certainly interesting for prospective buyers. General Motors is having a few busy days at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, with introductions of the new generation Chevrolet Traverse and the smaller GMC Terrain – a sibling to the Chevy Equinox. Both have only been teased for now – Chevy’s version last year in December, and now we also catch a glimpse of the 2018 Terrain as well.

The teaser shows a shadowy line of the rear part of the side profile of the next-gen Terrain and the most interesting feature is the new floating rear pillar. This is arguably quite different from what’s in store for the Chevrolet Equinox, and rumors are counting on a rigged appearance for the GMC crossover. The new platform is also bringing a weight loss and the GMC model might share with the Chevy 1.5- and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engines with 170 horsepower (127 kilowatts) and 252 hp (188 kW), respectively. No word on the Equinox’s diesel option for now, though.
