Christian Wardlaw | Nov 01, 2017

The hottest-selling segment in the U.S. auto market is compact crossover SUVs, and GMC’s big news for 2018 is a redesigned Terrain, which lands squarely where modern vehicle shoppers are looking. Dramatically redesigned and refined, the new Terrain is likely to prove even more successful than the first version. Other GMC models receive minor updates for the 2018 model year.
