2019 GMC Terrain - North Canton


The 2019 GMC Terrain Strikes the Perfect Balance of Sportiness and Space

Do you need a vehicle spacious enough to handle transporting larger items, like furniture or outdoor gear, or to help with the duties of a growing family, but don't want a large car that feels sluggish? The 2019 GMC Terrain is the ideal blend of those two qualities, roominess and a sporty feel, while also providing convenience, safety, and style, so car shoppers from Cuyahoga Falls to Canton looking for the perfect recipe of automotive qualities should read more about this compact SUV below.

What exceptional characteristics make up the 2019 GMC Terrain?


The GMC Terrain is a very versatile compact SUV, and car shoppers around Akron will notice that versatility even before they pay for it because it has lots of configurations, so they're sure to find one that suits them. The options start with the engines, of which there are three, including:

  • The turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that comes standard has 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. The uber-responsive 9-speed automatic transmission is in charge of transferring this power, and it helps with efficiency, up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway. This engine can also tow trailers up to 1,500 pounds.
  • For Massillon drivers that need more power for thrills or towing, the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder has 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque that makes towing 3,500 pounds a breeze and accelerating a joy. It also comes coupled to the 9-speed automatic transmission.
  • Prefer the efficiency and torque specs of diesel? The available 1.6-liter diesel engine gets up to an EPA-estimated 39 mpg highway and packs 240 pound-feet of torque.

Each of these engines is available with all-wheel drive, which our North Canton customers normally end up selecting as it makes winter driving less stressful.

Storage Options

We mentioned the towing specs of each configuration that aid those drivers with jet skis, campers, and everything in between, but the GMC Terrain also has smart storage options for smaller items too. Available roof rails are perfect for mountain bikes and small boats (kayaks, canoes), and every seat in the cabin but the driver's folds down, so you can store items up to eight feet in length that you want to protect from the elements, like furniture.


Drivers encounter unpredictable situations all the time when they hit the road, whether that's in a parking lot or on a busy highway, but the GMC Terrain is available with smart safety features that can take some of that unpredictability out of driving. These include:

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

Additionally, the sensors that make these features work are also used in the available Automatic Parking Assist feature that does the steering for drivers on tough parking tasks, like parallel and perpendicular parking.

Passenger Comfort

The large cabin of the GMC Terrain means that passengers are less likely to feel squeezed in, which is the first step in staying comfortable. It doesn't stop there however as it offers features like:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Multi-way power adjustable seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • SkyScape® power sunroof


To top it all off, the GMC Terrain keeps up with the technology of today with a range of features designed for our ever-more connected world. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto programs that come standard with the GMC Infotainment System let you simply access your favorite mobile apps while a Wi-Fi hotspot keeps you connected in even poor-reception areas. Plus, there are a variety of charging options, from USB ports to a wireless charging slot, so that each passenger can stay at full battery.
