The 2016 GMC Terrain compact utility vehicle and its upscale derivative, the Terrain Denali, were revealed today ahead of their public debut at the New York International Auto Show.

Both models get a minor mid-cycle styling touch-up with new front and rear fascias, new grille designs, a power dome hood, light-emitting diode (LED) daytime running lamps and other minor updates.

Newly-available features on SLE and SLT models include Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert for the first time.

A list of the most significant revisions for the 2016 Terrain lineup includes:

> New front and rear fascias with C-shaped lower chrome trim

> New, chrome-accented grille designs for SLE, SLT and Denali – including specific grille texture on Denali

> New power dome hood design

> New LED daytime running lamps on uplevel models

> New 18-inch aluminum wheel design offered on non-Denali models

> New 19-inch aluminum wheel design offered on Denali

> Revised instrument panel “centre stack” with new storage shelf and updated control graphics

> Revised model lineup: SL, SLE (SLE-1 and SLE-2), SLT and Denali

> Available Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety features on SLE and SLT (previous available only on Denali).

The GMC Terrain, along with its Chevrolet Equinox sibling, is built at GM's CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ontario – with some finishing work completed at GM Canada's Oshawa plant.
