The 2018 Terrain looks to be completely new, and is now built on GM's D2XX platform. It again shares a platform and major components with the Chevrolet Equinox; like the 2018 Equinox, the Terrain will offer three engines, including two turbocharged gas four-cylinders and a turbodiesel four. The base 1.5-liter gas four makes 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, while the 2.0-liter inline-four puts out 252 hp and 262 lb-ft. (The 2.0 basically takes the place of the 3.6-liter V6 offered in the outgoing Terrain.) GM's 1.6-liter diesel four will also be available, making 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque in this application. Both gas engines will be paired with nine-speed automatic transmissions, while the diesel gets a six-speed auto. No fuel-economy claims have been made, but we expect the new models to outdo the current versions, with the diesel reaching around 40 mpg on the EPA highway cycle.

The head and taillights are a bit odd.  That 3rd window between the c- and d-pillars looks useless.

That's not a window - it's needed to allow the window to roll all the way down.

I'm talking about the rear 3/4 window....behind the door.  See on the left of this picture.

Oh I see now.  I thought that was a shadow and didn't realize the quarter panel went up that high.   That is really strange.

I looks a lot more upscale than its predecessor, although pictures arent always telling. I don't mind the exterior though.

That's a strange location for the transmission push buttons.  Seems like a reach.

Oh wow, I didn't even realize it has a pushbutton transmission.  Seems strange too....do you pull for "R" and "D" since it looks like they have finger slots to reach into?

Looks like it.   Did GM hire the FCA person who designed the JGC shifter?

Yeah, doesn't seem very intuitive at all.....though I can understand why (to avoid the "I pushed the wrong button" scenarios), but not something you can quickly do.

They copied Honda Pilot taillights. But what really sells these are interiors and standard features*.

 

 

 

*Not "standard options"!

I agree. I like it a lot except for that weird window.

That is exactly what I thought when I saw it, I was thinking, "Man, that is one ugly Nissan."

They have to do something to differentiate it from Buick...although I'm sure Buick would have preferred to do the Lexus thing.  GMC wants to go with the the stuby version of those designs it seems.

It is becoming a trend on a lot of cars.  You'll see many more soon I'm sure...

And the Prius, new Honda Oddity, etc.

I think Nissan started the trend, right?
