Blacked-out special edition versions of the GMC Acadia and Terrain will go on sale this summer.
GMC has plenty of choice in its SUV lineup, and now the automaker is expanding its premium SUV range with new Black Editions of the 2019 Terrain and Acadia that give both models an even bolder appearance. As you might have guessed from the name, the Black Editions are distinguished by darkened exterior treatments, adding more choices to lineups that also include color-matched, chromed and unique Denali appearances. GMC says the blacked-out SUVs have been introduced in response to demand for greater vehicle personalization.
According to the automaker, sales data shows that around one in five new SUV buyer spends more money after the initial purchase to personalize the appearance. "The new Terrain and Acadia Black Editions perfectly capture the identity of the GMC brand by offering a bold and confident exterior appearance," said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. "They give our customers more choices within the premium SUV segment to distinguish their vehicle and themselves." Available on SLE and SLT models, the Terrain Black Edition includes 19-inch gloss black aluminium wheels, a darkened grille insert and black surround, black mirror caps, roof rails and additional exterior accents.
It also features Black Edition exterior model and trim badging and is available in five exterior colors: Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic and, new for 2019, Sedona Metallic. The Acadia Black Edition gets similar treatment. Available only for the SLT model, the appearance package includes 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with black accents, a black grille insert and black surround, black headlamp and taillamp details, black mirror caps, roof rails and additional exterior accents. The choice of exterior colors include Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, White Frost Tricoat and, new for 2019, Dark Sky Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic.
