Work continues on the 2018 GMC Terrain as spy photographers have managed to snap new photos of the redesigned crossover.

Set to be sold alongside the new Chevrolet Equinox, the 2018 Terrain will follow in the footsteps of the Acadia and adopt a stylish exterior with more curvaceous bodywork.  The camouflage hides a lot of details but we can see the crossover will have a prominent grille, a gently sloping roof, and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. 

General Motors haven't said much about the next-generation Terrain but it is expected to ride on the new D2XX platform that underpins the Cruze.  Previous reports have suggested the crossover will also be smaller than its predecessor but nothing is official as of yet.

There's no word on engine options but rumors have indicated the Terrain will be powered by either a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque or a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder which develops 197 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque.  Regardless of which engine is used, it will likely be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel-drive system.

The 2018 GMC Terrain is expected to be introduced at 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show or the 2016 North American International Auto Show.  Sales are slated to begin in the summer of 2017 and pricing will likely start in the low to mid-$20,000 range.
