GMC is continuing to grow its lineup of special-edition vehicles with the introduction of the 2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall Edition.

The General Motors Co. brand on Monday said the new blacked-out sport utility vehicle will make its public debut this week at the New York International Auto Show.

The five-passenger compact SUV features 18-inch aluminum wheels and gloss-black spokes, a charcoal grill with a gloss-black surround and accents, gloss-black front and rear fascia accents, gloss-black rear license plate surround trim, gloss-black outside mirrors and black luggage rails.

“The new Terrain Nightfall Edition adds another great-looking and well-equipped choice for this popular SUV — one that will stand out in a crowd,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, in a statement.

The standard Ecotec 2.4-liter direct-injected engine delivers an EPA-estimated 32 miles per gallon on the highway (front-wheel-drive models). A direct-injected 3.6-liter V-6 is available and delivers best-in-class 301 horsepower (225 kW) and 272 lb-ft of torque (369 Nm). The V-6 engine also enables a trailering capacity of up to 3,500 pounds (1,588 kg).

A GM spokesperson said pricing for the Nightfall package — available on the SLE-2 and SLT models — will be announced closer to its availability.

The 2016 Terrain SLE-2 starts at about $30,000, followed by the SLT at roughly $32,000, according to GMC’s website.

Terrain Nightfall — on sales this fall – joins the Canyon Nightfall midsize pickup and all-new Sierra All Terrain X as the brand’s newest special editions.

Terrain enjoyed record sales in 2015, with 112,030 deliveries. The SUV is GMC’s second-highest selling vehicle in 2015, only behind the Sierra full-size pickup.
