General Motors seems to have a strange obsession with the color black, as it continues to release more and more special-edition vehicles that feature the sinister hue. Today, it adds to this growing list with the new GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition.
The modifications to this rig are pretty straightforward as the goal was to make the Terrain pop using shiny, black accents. The components coated in the dark, glossy color include the 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheels, the grille surround and accents, front and rear fascia accents, rear license plate surround, the side-view mirrors, and the roof rails.
This special-edition crossover will only be available on the SLE-2 and SLT trims of the 2017 Acadia. GMC will offer it in just four colors: Summit White, Onyx Black, Graphite Gray Metallic, and Crimson Red Metallic. With all of these available colors, I am curious as to why GMC chose to use Onyx Black—the color that least shows off the modifications that this special model features—as the color of the example rig in its press release.
Other than the changes outlined above, the GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition is unchanged when compared to the model it’s based on, including its 182-horsepower 2.4-liter base engine and the optional 3.6-liter V-6 with 301 horsepower.
The 2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition will hit showroom floors in the fall of 2016. At this time, pricing remains unknown, but given the more comprehensive Nightfall Package for the Canyon adds $4,816 to the MSRP, look for the Terrain’s package to add around $3,500 to $4,000.
