The General Motors is planning to release a fresh and updated vehicle named 2018 GMC Granite. This Sports Utility Vehicle was revealed in 2010 Detroit Auto Show as a concept car. The renovated machine introduces positive marks which would make it appealing to many enthusiasts the world over. Apparently, the new edition targets all fans of the classical-yet-sporty and spacious vehicle.
The next-gen model flaunts more modern features in contrast to its predecessors, which were slightly more simplified in design. It uses various materials in different percentage, including steel, aluminum and carbon. Also, the upcoming vehicle gets infiltrated LED program at the front and rear ends. And there is the likelihood of a firmer and lighter bumper as well.
The SUV’s larger cabin will feature great dashboard with updated Google programs, maps and navigation. All interior corners will likely receive top-of-the-end leather materials. The cabin accommodates up to four seats with safety belts that showcase several designs. You can customize this to suit your specific requirements.
2018 GMC Granite – Luxury and Spacious Cabin
Based on our recent spy shots, we can attest that the 2018 GMC Granite is a true SUV with a massive front end. It is going to be made out of lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber. All its lights will get new LED illumination. We also expect the refreshed Granite to roll out on a new set of 20-inch alloy wheels.
The very first thing you are likely to notice inside the redesigned GMC Granite is its spacious cabin. It appears that this compartment is much more spacious than all of the other small-size crossovers in the same category. The new cabin highlights leather seats, which are designed so that every passenger inside can feel relaxed and comfortable during the ride.
On the middle instrument board, we are likely to find a large touchscreen seamlessly installed. The instrument cluster depicts a great style and comes packed with tremendous functions that improve the entire trip. We expect to find the dual-zone climate controller inside the revamped 2018 GMC Granite. Furthermore, the newest audio and navigation system alongside improved safety features will be availed to guarantee a safe and amusing journey.
Specification of the Engine
The GMC revealed only a single engine option that will power the 2018 GMC Granite. However, we think that the automaker is unlikely to stop at just one choice. At least, more powertrain options will become available as the crossover nears its planned debut date. The manufacturer has already hinted the likelihood of a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine as the first choice.
The supposed unit is suitable to give the renovated 2018 GMC Granite up to 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. Also, this drivetrain gets connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox that would distribute power to either front wheels or all wheels depending on your choice. Based on some unconfirmed report, it has the combined fuel consumption of around 30 mpg.
MSRP and Expected Debut Date of the 2018 GMC Granite
We do not have any official reports regarding the 2018 GMC Granite price and release date. Nonetheless, rumor has it that the initial price of the base model is likely to be around $20,000.
More luxurious trim levels, on the other hand, may cost up to $30,000. The redesigned GMC Granite edition probably hits the showrooms in February of 2018 and goes on sale later that year.
