2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition Review, Price

Black is back. Be it suits, ties, boots, mobiles or cars –
black is what defines shut-up-and-ogle. ‘Nightfall’ – there’s
something serenely dark and alluring about it. And this 2017
GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition is a realisation of everything
that ‘black’ can be. And there’s a lot more to it than meets
the eye.

2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition – Looks and
Shape

The name suggests something special, something above the
ordinary. And this GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition 2017 looks
just that. Black all the way outside. As far as exterior
modifications are concerned, everything comes in the dark hue
and beautifully too.

Contrasting dark with a light is a worked out fashion; pure
black is the call of the day. Look at the car, just look at it
and keep looking. The only things shining about it would be the
front and rear lamps, rims, window borders and the fog lights.
And the rest is sight for sore eyes.

The 2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition itself is a
well-contoured muscle bulging just that much at just the right
places. The 3 layer grille sporting GMCs’ logo is powerfully
detailed in a dark matter metal mesh. Edges around it are dark
compared to the other packages. A stacked up front fender
houses the fog lamps on either side bordering over dark caves
which are air intakes.

Bulges on the wheel arches with masochist curves merge smoothly
with a body-line silhouetted just as the word ‘Nightfall’
suggests with a subtle shine.

The whole theme carries over inside, plush in the same hue,
only contrasted here and there with some metal accents. Dark
leather upholstery and stitches, similar upscale plastic,
well-accentuated dashboard – the first-time look inside this
2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition would leave anyone awestruck
with its regal silence.

GMC has done a laudable job in getting the right details
modified to make this vehicle look as good as it can and even a
bit more maybe; and that too, at a complete package which would
make the buyer just $795 more broke – a packaging master-class.

The SLT-2 and SLT trims both come with a powerful 2.4-liter VVT
(Variable Valve Timing) SIDI (Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection)

essentially a gorgeous black beast of a machine to have. And,
given its moderate price, especially the Nightfall package
itself, GMC might be looking at overvaluing its 2015 record
sales of 110,000 plus Terrains.
