The Terrain's overall shape has been tweaked in the wind tunnel with efficiency and cabin quietness in mind.

The biggest news comes under the hood with three new engines choices including two turbocharged gas engines, and a diesel.

Base Terrain models get a 1.5-liter, 170-horsepower turbo four-cylinder, while those looking for more ponies can opt for a 2.0-liter, 252-horspopower turbo four.

Fans of low-end torque will like the 1.6-liter turbodiesel with 137 horsepower, but 240 pound-feet of twist.

Both front- and all-wheel drive models will be offered, with AWD Terrains coming with a FWD mode that decouples of rear axle when conditions allow for improved fuel efficiency.

For the cabin, refinement is up with aluminum trim, more soft-touch surfaces and more spacious center console with a new Electronic Precision Shift controller with buttons and triggers replacing the old-fashion transmission shifter.

GMC has also expanded the Terrain's menu of safety features to include a 360-degree camera, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane keep assist, Rear Seat Reminder and Teen Driver feature to let parents keep an eye on a kid's driving habits and dole out punishment if necessary.

The interior is... interesting. GMC replaced the shifter with a series of buttons on the center stack.

The area a shifter would exist is filled by cup holders and a terrain mode switch.
