2018 GMC Model Changes

As we get new information on all of the 2018 GMCs, this article will be updated. So bookmark it!

Edited 8/6/2017: Added Yukon.

Edited 9/15/2017: Added Savana.


2018 GMC Acadia

A new Easy-Fill tire pressure system beeps the horn and flashes the lights when you add or let out air from the tires to let you know when the pressure is right.

Heated steering wheel standard in the Denali now turns on automatically with the heated driver's seat.

The Acadia Limited (previous generation Acadia) is gone.


2018 GMC Canyon

Bluetooth is now standard across the board. So is a washer fluid sensor, so you know you're out of washer fluid before you pull the lever and hear the empty, dry whine and streak dirt all over your windshield.

SLE now has heated side mirrors previously only on SLT and Denali.

The rear camera includes special guidelines to help hook up a trailer when the V6 or Diesel engine is ordered.


2018 GMC Savana

GMC Savana and sister CHevrolet Express are the last body-on-frame traditional American vans sold.

A backup camera is now standard. Blind Spot Warning is now optional

OnStar® is now standard in Savana cargo van, in case your cookie delivery man runs away with your mint thins you can track him down. If he crashes, OnStar will send help to rescue the cookies.

A 4.3-liter direct injection V6 with variable valve timing is the new standard engine. This overhead-valve (no overhead camshafts) engine has 265 horsepower. ALong with the optional 2.8 4-cylinder diesel and the 6.0-liter V8, this makes the Savana one of a few vehicles that offers a 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engine. It includes an eight-speed automatic transmission, the same as the optional diesel.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500

Backup camera now standard on all models.

Easy-Fill tire pressure system added to standard tire pressure monitor.

Bluetooth also standard on all models.


2018 GMC Terrain

All-new the Terrain rests on a new, tighter, lighter platform and goes all turbo. 1.5 and 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engines go through nine-speed automatics and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel uses the somewhat older GM six-speed automatic. All offer standard front-wheel-drive or optional all-wheel-drive.

Even though it's shorter than the old Terrain, it loses very little in cargo space and gains almost four cubic feet of passenger room. It maintains the 3500 pound maximum towing capacity when equipped with the 2.0 turbo gasoline engine.

The new Terrain also add the options of autonomous low speed braking to help prevent accidents in cities and neighborhoods and a surround vision camera to aid in parking.

Terrain Denali now offers optional ventilated front seats.

Other than trim, styling and materials, the only features that differentiates the new Terrain from its Chevrolet Equinox brother is the automated parking system optional on Terrain Denali and the use of the 9-speed automatic with the base 1.5L turbo engine.


 2018 GMC Yukon Denali

Denali trims get a ten-speed automatic transmission and a new grille.

Standard Easy-Fill tire pressure system beeps the horn and flashes the lights when you add or let out air from the tires to let you know when the pressure is right.
