Given the 2016 GMC Terrain’s extensive safety technologies, performance features, and infotainment solutions, the vehicle offers Middle East buyers a truly competitive pricing scheme versus comparable offerings in the segment. Distinguished by a new, more contemporary appearance and additional enhancements, the refreshed 2016 GMC Terrain lineup continues to be a smart choice for customers seeking versatility, style and technology.

For 2016, the Terrain’s bold design has been restyled and updated. It now features a redesigned front and rear fascia with chrome accents; new LED daytime running lamps on uplevel models; new 18- and 19-inch wheel designs; premium cloth seat fabric (now standard on SLE models); a new power dome hood design; a revised instrument panel “center stack” with new storage shelf and updated control graphics; and a new, chrome-trimmed transmission shifter.


The 2016 Terrain is available in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, in SLE and SLT trim levels, as well as the Denali.

IntelliLink extends the connectivity experience from safety and security to information and entertainment by seamlessly integrating the capability of a smartphone into the vehicle so that hand-held phones may be safely stowed while driving.
