GMC Introduces 2016 Terrain

 

2016 GMC Terrain Denali

The 2016 GMC Terrain and Terrain Denali were introduced, ahead of their public debut at the New York International Auto Show.

The 2016 Terrain lineup features new front and rear fascias, new grille designs, a power dome hood, light-emitting diode (LED) daytime running lamps and additional updates. Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are offered on SLE and SLT models for the first time.

“Terrain is a popular choice in the growing compact SUV segment, introducing drivers to GMC’s professional grade design and features,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of

GMC Sales and Marketing. “The changes for 2016 provide consumers with even more reasons to consider Terrain as it continues to be a smart choice for customers seeking versatility, style and technology.”

The compact SUV market leapt 17.4 percent in 2014 to account for 15.7 percent of the total U.S. market, overtaking midsize cars for the first time as the auto industry’s largest vehicle segment.

Terrain had its best year ever in 2014 with 105,016 sales. The momentum continues this year, as Terrain enjoyed its best-ever January and February sales.

The New York region is the national leader for compact SUV sales, with more than 200,000 retail units sold last year. It is also second-highest selling region for Terrain, behind Detroit.

Chevrolet NIVA Next Generation Concept at the Moscow International Motor Show.

Chevrolet Niva

Chevrolet NIVA is  produced by the GM-AVTOVAZ joint venture since 2002. The new generation concept shown at Moscow International Motor Show, with its high road clearance, oversized wheels and tires, an underbody skidplate, a snorkel, a roofrack with a spare wheel on it and, as a highlight, a lightbar; represents very clearly Chevrolet’s motto – ‘Find New Roads’.

The Next Generation Chevrolet NIVA will be equipped with a 1.8 L gasoline engine with 30% more torque than today’s vehicle. Paired with a 5-speed gearbox, the full-time 4WD SUV will come with a locking differential and a two- speed transfer case – like today’s NIVA, it will have high- and low-range gear settings. The interior design of the Concept indicates greater comfort and refinement by including features like power mirrors and door locks, modern safety systems, and fully-integrated infotainment. A special interior gauge package has a number of additional read-outs for travellers: a compass, outside temperature indicator and an inclinometer (slope meter).

Ondrej Koromhaz – born in the former Czechoslovakia, but now working for GM China in Shanghai – was the Lead designer on the Next Generation NIVA exterior and interior; Italian Design house ‘Blue Engineering’ provided support throughout the engineering and development process.
