2018 GMC Terrain’s Aerodynamic Design

GMC Terrain’s aerodynamic design

Upgrading The Train

Functional & Attractive

A vehicle’s design does a lot more than just make it look good. Designers and engineers spend hundreds of hours fine-tuning a design to make sure it is both attractive and functional, especially when it comes to aerodynamics. The 2018 GMC Terrain’s aerodynamic design comes after spending more than 300 hours in a wind tunnel to get every surface just right.

Decreasing Drag

“Reducing the aerodynamic drag of an SUV is always a challenge,” said GMC Aerodynamic Engineer Alicia Bidwell. “Our engineering team paid attention to even the smallest details to deliver the size and cargo space our customers want.”

More Streamlined

With its new streamlined design, Terrain owners get a more efficient SUV. In fact, drivers can expect an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined with all-wheel-drive models, which is up to 3 mpg more than previous models.

Stylish Design

The Terrain has a lifted stance that directs airflow under the vehicle, which in turn increases drag. To combat this, engineers found other way to guide the air to the back of the vehicle. This makes the styling and mechanical components work together to deliver the best-looking Terrain ever.
