2019 GMC Acadia, Terrain Editions Reaffirm Black Is the New Black

2019 GMC Acadia Black Edition and Terrain Black Edition

In case the auto industry hadn’t already spun off enough dark- or night-themed special editions, you can add two more to the mix: GMC’s latest Black Edition SUVs, both cosmetic packages for 2019 on the compact Terrain and mid-size Acadia. Not to be confused with the prior-generation Terrain’s Nightfall Edition — or Midnight Editions of various SUVs and pickup trucks from sister brand Chevrolet — these editions have black accents on the grille, badging, mirrors, roof rails and, in the Acadia’s case, lighting.

The Acadia Black Edition gets 20-inch silver-and-black aluminum wheels; the Terrain has 19-inch gloss-black wheels. Unlike the Yukon SUV’s recent Ultimate Black Edition, which came only with Onyx Black paint, Black Editions of the Acadia and Terrain are available in five colors apiece — including four that, well, aren’t black.

The Terrain Black Edition comes in Summit White or various metallic colors: two shades of gray (Graphite Gray Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic), black (Ebony Twilight Metallic) or a new burnt-orange metallic hue called Sedona. The Acadia Black Edition comes in Ebony Twilight Metallic, two variants of white (Summit White or White Frost Tricoat) or two new metallic colors: Dark Sky Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic. Those are hues of gray and brown, respectively, GMC told us.

That means you can get a white GMC Acadia or Terrain with Black Edition accents. Have at it. On sale this summer, the Black Editions are available on the Terrain’s SLE and SLT trim levels, and the Acadia’s SLT trim. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
