The Terrain is the smallest GMC in the line-up. However, the looks suggest a bigger size than it really is. The first thing that captures attention on GMC's new compact SUV is, its in-yer-face design with its gigantic bold grille, muscular fender flares and squared looks. Setting it apart from the GMCs.
So while the exterior is a love-it-or-hate-it look, the interior is much more conservative for all people. A lot of the interior components is shared from the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. So it's very car-like, and less truck-like. There's also comfortable and safe space for five people and their luggage as well. The differences between the Terrain and the Chevy Equinox are much less evident and concern details like the door panels and trim options.
The GMC Terrain will be offered with two new powertrains. Base option, is a new, 2.4L direct-injection four-cylinder engine with 182 hp, and that delivers an estimated 30 mpg highway, 21 mpg city. Top model is equipped with a 3.0L direct-injected V6 engine, with 264 hp, but returns a respectable estimated of 25 mpg highway, 18 mpg city. Both engines are equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission and are offered in front- or all-wheel drive versions.
The 2010 Terrain will hit GMC dealerships in late summer and will be available in SLE and SLT trim levels. We really hope from our hearts that this pays off, because GM needs every penny at the moment.
