Many people may not realize this, but crossovers and SUVs are growing rapidly in terms of their market share in the United States. According to, more than 50 percent of sales in the automotive automotive market by 2020 will be SUVs and crossovers. For reference, that percentage stood at just under one-third, or 32 percent, in the United States in 2013. This means that American auto buyers are looking for larger vehicles that provide versatility in performance all while looking for vehicles that are more fuel-efficient and economical in different ways. Fortunately, GMC is well aware of that trend, which is why the new line of GMC SUVs successfully offers something for everyone who needs a vehicle to perform well, ride smoothly and provide style and comfort while they sit behind the wheel or in the passenger cabin.

If you’re looking for a new vehicle, it would be wise to consider an SUV for a number of different reasons. You’ll ride higher on the road, be able to see more, and you won’t be sacrificing comfort or even efficiency in many ways when you compare these models to common sedans. Here at Carl Black Kennesaw, we’re proud to show our new customers our GMC SUVs, and we almost always find the perfect fit for their needs. We’re going to break down the new GMC SUVs and crossovers below so you can get an idea of what you may be looking at when you come to see us for a test drive.

The 2019 GMC Terrain

The 2019 GMC Terrain comes with an MSRP of $25,000, making it the most affordable model in the line of GMC SUVs and crossovers. These vehicles can tow up to 3,500 pounds and they earn 26 miles per gallon in the city and up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway, putting them in line with quite a few much smaller vehicles on the market. The 2019 Terrain comfortably seats five people, rides comfortably and offers the ability to immediately switch traction modes so that you can get the rugged performance of an SUV when you encounter slippery or otherwise difficult driving conditions. Not to mention, all of the rear seats fold down neatly so you can completely maximize your hauling capabilities inside the passenger cabin.  

The 2019 GMC Terrain Denali

The Denali line of GMC SUVs has taken the public by storm in recent years, as it offers high-end performance, high-end style and everything else you could ever want in a larger vehicle. It also rides like a silky-smooth sedan down the highway, and it’s efficient, earning 22 miles per gallon in the city and up to 28 miles per gallon on the highway. MSRP on this beautiful vehicle starts at $37,800, which is an incredibly reasonable price point for such a luxury model. Like the GMC Terrain, the Denali offers you the ability to tow up to 3,500 pounds and it seats five people comfortably. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine provides that little extra boost that you may need to accelerate from time to time, so strap in and enjoy the ride from start to finish.

The 2019 GMC Acadia
