2018 GMC Terrain models and packages

Packages include:

Driver Alert Package I

This package is available on the SLE/SLT and is standard on a Denali. It will equip your Terrain with Rear Park Assist, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Safety Alert Seat. The Safety Alert Seat is new for 2018 and will vibrate your seat when a crash avoidance alert is triggered.

Powertrain

Turbo engines have been around for a long time and they are becoming more and more popular for one simple reason: they allow a small engine to make more power on demand. Typically, the more overall power produced by an engine equals an increase in the average amount of fuel burnt, but turbo engines strike an efficient balance by only requiring additional fuel if and when additional power is necessary.

Mr. Lynch is always very helpful, friendly and I can tell that he appreciates our business. Easy process for financing the lease and getting the car scheduled and returned after the rustproofing and paint protection in 24 hours. I had a few requirements going into this lease return which were met and I was very happy with the incentives for the lease pull-up!
