2018 GMC Terrain

Just saw the new Terrain pics after the unveiling. I noticed the lack of a gear shifter. It's all push button on the center console. Totally different than the new Equinox.

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

There was a poster who was wondering about AC vents for the back passengers. This will please him

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

The placement of those buttons is dumb. Right below the Hvac controls? Here come the lawsuits.

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

Love the big sunroof available, the rear vents are ok I guess. I feel like there will be an even larger blind spot in the rear quarter now but like the look. Definitely would miss the moving rear seat. I have never had a problem with the nearly flat folding one now. I know most everyone is gaga over the pushbutton start but don't feel I could ever get used to the pushbutton transmission. I'm old enough to remember them from the first time around. There were reasons they went away then. Overall, I'd give the looks both inside an out a B+ to A-.

Can't wait to actually drive one. Will be interesting to see if I could get by without the 3.6 that I love so dearly.

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

They should have put the push button in the steering wheel airbag location, like the Edsel !

I do like the return of the folding front passenger seat like the Vibe/Matrix.

Looks like they are copying the Nissan's C/D pillar design.

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

"Push Button" dashboard transmission controls. .. . wow, innovative.

My first girl friend's father had that on their 1967 Plymouth station wagon . . .

It could catch on . . .


Oh geez. . . I just realized. . . . 2017 - 1967= 50 !

Re: 2018 GMC Terrain

I for one think they finally fixed their first world problem. The rear air vents with controls (i hope it's with controls). I mean a lot of people on the facebook page just said meh because of the styling. But I like it honestly! I thought the pics shown looks bigger than the current gen. The only thing is that I don't know if there will be manual mode and if they're going to make brown leather on the options list just because the GMC site only shows black and titanium interior which would be a bad idea.

The only "Manual Mode" it will have is the + and - buttons next to the " L " button. You can see them in one of the pictures and also it is mentioned in one article.

And that wouldn't be very accessible hunching and leaning over to try and "shift" while steering. Those buttons are probably more for selecting a top gear if towing or going up/down long steep grades.
