GMC’s 2020 model year lineup has gone through a lot of change. Apparently, the automaker’s not done yet, as it just announced a slew of changes to the 2020 Terrain, making it safer and more premium than before.
In structure and design, the 2020 GMC Terrain will remain the same, but it will get some much-needed updates to keep up with its rivals in the highly competitive crossover segment. The big change will be converting once-optional safety tech to standard equipment. These newly standardized safety goodies will include automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, following-distance indicator, forward pedestrian braking, and adaptive headlights.
There will still be a few optional safety bits on the 2020 Terrain, including adaptive cruise, lane-change alert, blind-zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, and front park assist.
The 2020 GMC Terrain also will gain a new Denali Premium Package to further improve on the already premium Terrain Denali. This package will include adaptive cruise control, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and more. The 2020 Terrain Denali will also gain an exclusive suspension for a more composed ride and spring isolators to reduce noise.
The final update to the 2020 Terrain will be changing the name of the popular Black Edition to the Elevated Edition. Despite the name change, the Elevated Edition will offer the same upgrades as the package it replaces, including 19-inch gloss-black wheels, darkened trim and three color options: Summit White, Graphite Gray Metallic, or Ebony Twilight Metallic.
There is no mention of when the 2020 GMC Terrain will hit showrooms, so stay tuned for updates.
