2018 GMC Terrain Safety Feature Facts
The 2018 GMC Terrain offers a suite of active safety technologies and adaptive crash-avoidance features that help provide more peace of mind on the road, for adults as well as new teen drivers. They are built into a new, stronger and more rigid body structure that also helps contribute to occupant safety.
All of the new Terrain’s crash-avoiding and passenger-protecting technologies are built into a stronger body structure that incorporates high-strength steel in key areas to help prevent intrusion into the passenger compartment. Additionally, the front suspension cradle is hard-mounted to the body structure at six points, enabling better front end crash energy management across a wide spectrum of impact severities. It features a two-stage release strategy that allows the middle and rear mounts to disengage separately depending on the crash situation. This design is key to help preserve the integrity of the occupants’ safety cage during collisions.
Active safety features
Available advanced active safety features to enhance driver awareness on the road include radar- and camera-based adaptive technologies that can provide alerts or warnings to potential threats, allowing the driver to react and make changes to possibly avoid them, including:

Passive safety features
GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest-possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.
