2010 GMC Terrain
For 2010, GMC hits the ground running with the all-new Terrain compact crossover. This is only the second-ever crossover from GMC, but it bows with the tough stance that is expected from the brand’s “professional grade” mantra.
The Terrain’s large-for-a-compact five adult body neatly compliments the eight passenger Acadia.
While mechanically identical to the new Chevy Equinox, the GMC Terrain features distinctive tough-as-nails styling.
Wide, squared-off fender flares and an upright, strictly business C-pillar set the Terrain apart from the curvier Equinox, with which it shares two powertrains.
A direct-injected 2.4-liter I-4 with 182 horsepower comes standard. A 3.0-liter V6 also featuring direct-injection delivers 264 horsepower.
A 6-speed automatic transaxle is also standard, with all-wheel drive an option.
With the standard 4-cylinder front-drive powertrain, Terrain shares with the Equinox a Government Highway Fuel Economy rating of 32 mpg. That’s higher than any other crossover, including hybrids.
“GM has always made strong, reliable trucks. But, the real trick, and what they’re showing now is that they can make them strong, reliable, and super-efficient. The new GMC Terrain, even the 4-cylinder has plenty of power, it sips fuel. The V6 they offer is a sheer brute!” Ben Davis
The Terrain’s two-tone interior is more upscale than that of the Equinox, with distinctive dash moldings and seat materials. A rear-view camera is standard with a programmable liftgate an option.
