GMC is one of the leading innovators in the industry, one reason drivers everywhere can’t wait for the 2018 GMC lineup. Noticeable changes have been made to vehicles like the GMC Terrain, while the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali has a polished, refined design. Plus, the Sierra Denali HD has some minor changes as well. At Ewing Buick GMC, we couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming lineup.
According to GMC, the all-new GMC Terrain has some exhilarating changes. The Terrain has C-shaped LED lights and signature looks, including a “floating roof” design for modern appeal, while a spacious interior is great for the whole family. That’s not to mention the state-of-the-art infotainment technologies that provide improved connectivity.
The Yukon Denali also has some subtle changes for the 2018 model year. For instance, new accenting provides added refinement, while the standard 20-inch wheels are truly bold. Perhaps one of the most notable changes is the Yukon Denali’s newly designed grille, a seemingly small change that manages to make quite the statement wherever you go.
Finally, the Sierra Denali HD has been updated as well. In addition to the revamped “Like a Pro” campaign that showcases the Sierra, the Denali HD trim has a new look and a new grille. The lighting, front fascia, and wide stance on the new Denali HD complement the rest of the 2018 lineup, creating a cohesive feel.
The GMC Terrain, Yukon Denali and the Sierra Denali HD will appear in late summer and early fall—which means they’ll be on the market very soon.
The 2018 GMC Terrain is finally here. With jaw-dropping styling and new features that’ll certainly surprise you, this could just be one of the top SUVs on the market. The Terrain is known for its extensive capabilities and family-friendly interior, and the new 2018 model year doesn’t disappoint.
According to Forbes, the 2018 Terrain’s exterior design is perhaps one of the most striking changes. The front end comes with “C” shaped headlights to create a more aggressive look, while the fascia has been restyled completely to improve aerodynamics. Plus, with a striking grille, you’re bound to make quite a statement anywhere you go when you arrive in the 2018 Terrain.
“GMC has introduced an all-new 2018 Terrain with knock-out styling, competent powertrains, a more premium interior, and a full suite of advanced safety features,” says Michael Harley at Forbes Autos. “The new crossover is not just better than its predecessor — it’s properly sized and more superior in nearly every category.”
The new Terrain design doesn’t just stop with new looks. The 2018 model year is 350 pounds lighter thanks to intelligent engineering, a change that improves fuel economy, handling, and power. Curious about the new Terrain? Stop by Ewing Buick GMC to learn more.
At the 1997 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, GMC showed off a concept vehicle that would capture the attention of everyone at the show. It was the first-ever Yukon Denali. This show vehicle came with unique exterior details and premium in-cabin features, including an early version of OnStar.
From there, the Denali line soon went into production and the first Yukon Denali models went on sale in late 1998. Now, nearly 20 years later, the one-millionth GMC Denali model has been sold.
Just like its namesake, the highest mountain in North America, the Denali lineup aims to stand above the rest of the SUV and truck lineup in America with premium amenities and fine craftsmanship.
“The advent of the Yukon Denali signaled a big shift, both in the industry and for GMC itself,” says Rich Latek, marketing director for GMC. “…We sensed an opportunity to create a premium-grade model that could resonate with customers on a whole new level.”
With the Yukon Denali, customers will find a premium SUV that can not only tackle tough jobs, but get you there in comfort and style. All three rows include premium, perforated leather-appointed seating. And, there are authentic aluminum and Java Burl wood inlays throughout the cabin.

When GMC first produced the Terrain in 2010, it was a boxy, rugged-luxury hybrid. This first generation is now coming to a close, with the updates coming to the 2018 GMC Terrain. Automotive News informs that the next Terrain will take a step back from the sharp edges and delve further into the luxury sector.
2018 is bringing a slimmer SUV – it’s losing around 465 pounds, as well as inches off the length, width and wheelbase. From the St. Louis Post Dispatch we learn that though fuel economy has yet to be determined, these size reductions and additional engine options are sure to help.
This year you may choose between a 7.0- or 8.0-inch IntelliLink Infotainment system, but that’s not the only addition. Apple and Android devices will be compatible to the system to provide more hands-free access. Many safety features will be added, such as lane departure warning, rear seat reminder, blind zone alerts and many more.

2014 turned out to be a great year for the GMC brand. The Sierra had its best sales year since 2005! The Yukon followed with its best sales year since 2007 selling over 71,000 units. The Terrain had its best sales year ever and the Acadia won Edmunds.com’s Most Popular Large Crossover SUV of 2014. Finally the Canyon won Autoweek Magazine’s Best of the Best Truck for 2015!
The ultra-plush Denali lineup also saw sales gains in 2014. More than 21% of GMC sales to individual customers were vehicles from the Denali lineup. More than half of the year’s Yukon retail sales were Denalis and 35% of Sierra HD sales were Denalis. As you can see, the Denali lineup adds a little something extra to GMC’s already impressive lineup.
As you can see, GMC offers a pretty impressive lineup of trucks, CUVs, and SUVs. The brand hopes to continue the positive momentum into 2015! “In 2014 we had the freshest portfolio of GMC products on our lots including a full range of pickups, with the all-new Canyon. The new Yukon lineup has also driven high consumer interest to our store with its bold styling, especially the Yukon Denali,” said Chief Operating Officer at Motor City Buick GMC, John Pitre.
