2012 GMC Terrain
2012 GMC Terrain
Bolstered by its good fuel economy and new available features, the Terrain is a solid competitor in the small-SUV segment. The Terrain, which shares a platform with the Chevrolet Equinox, comes with a choice of two efficient but not exceptional direct-injected engines -- a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that gets 32 mpg on the highway in front-wheel-drive models and a 264-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 that can run on E85 fuel. The most notable change to the Terrain's lineup for the 2012 model year is the addition of IntelliLink, which could be compared to Ford's Sync system, in that it is a touch-screen interface for devices such as iPods and Bluetooth phones and enables them to be controlled via voice activation. Using a Bluetooth phone to connect to the internet, drivers can stream music from two audio services, Stitcher SmartRadio or Pandora. The Terrain's cabin is tastefully appointed and features plenty of cubbyholes for storage. It also has a second-row seat that slides fore and aft about eight inches so you can choose to have either maximum rear legroom or maximum storage in the cargo hold. Of course, it also folds flat. The Terrain is larger than many of its competitors, however, so storage shouldn't be an issue.
2013 GMC Terrain Denali Front View1
Been away from your computer this week and missed all the automotive news? We’ve gathered a few of the top stories of the past week, as well as the weekend racing schedule, for your convenience.
2013 GMC Terrain Denali Front View
GM's 301-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine debuts on the 2013 GMC Terrain Denali model, which features a number of visual upgrades over the regular Terrain. In the 2013 GMC Terrain Denali, the 3.6-liter V-6 engine makes 301 hp at 6500 rpm and 272 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm, easily besting the 2012 Terrain’s outgoing 3.0-liter rated at 264 hp at 6950 rpm and just 222 lb-ft of torque at 5100 rpm. Fuel economy for the 2013 Terrain Denali is said to equal that of the 2012 model with the outgoing six, which is EPA rated at 16/23 mpg city/highway with all-wheel drive and 17/24 mpg in front-drive form. The Terrain Denali is also available with the 2.4-liter engine for those who don't want or need the extra power and are looking for more style and better fuel economy. With the Denali trim somewhat popular on the larger Acadia crossover, it's no surprise to see Denali migrate to the smaller Terrain. “Denali is growing fast,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of GMC Marketing. “With seven different models, sales for this brand within a brand increased 79 percent from 2010 to 2011.” The 2013 GMC Terrain Denali also gets dual-flow dampers found on no other Terrain trim (yet). Four-cylinder Terrain Denalis get 18-inch wheels, while 19-inchers are saved for the V-6 model. Models with both powertrains get the honeycomb-style grille we've come to know from the Denali trim, plus satin chrome accents, slightly revised headlight and taillight designs, and chrome exhaust outlets (one on the 2.4L model, two on the 3.6L model). So the crossover's got a bit more curb appeal. Step inside and the Terrain Denali and you'll be greeted with plenty of badges (including a Denali illuminated front sill plates), a leather-wrapped steering wheel with smoked mahogany wood accents, power front seats, and a soft-touch instrument panel with French stitching. Features introduced in the 2012 model year to the Terrain like GMC's IntelliLink touch-screen infotainment system that can stream internet radio apps, forward collision alert, and the lane departure warning system are standard on the 2013 Terrain Denali. A programmable power liftgate is also standard equipment, though the navigation and rear-seat entertainment systems are extra. Pricing will be announced closer to the crossover's third-quarter 2012 on-sale date. A 2012 GMC Terrain AWD SLT-2 with a V-6 already runs $35,335 including destination while a base-model 2012 Cadillac SRX is $36,360. Source: GMC
2012 GMC Terrain Profile In The Snow
The Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain have been a recent hit for General Motors – especially four-cylinder models because of fluctuating fuel prices. Unfortunately, the supply has not met the demand, due in part to a short supply of components related to the 2.4-liter engines over the past two months.
2012 GMC Terrain Front Three In Snow
General Motors recently added a new crash avoidance safety feature to the GMC Terrain, and according to Automotive News, the top-of-the-line Denali trim level may also be added to GMC's best-selling crossover.
2010 Chevrolet Equinox Front Three Quarter
The Problem: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 138 requires the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to alert drivers when tire pressure is 25 percent below the recommended cold tire pressure. On Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs, the system doesn’t alert the driver until tire pressure is more than 25 percent below cold tire pressure. Underinflated tires pose a potential safety hazard; overloading and overheating the tire could blowout potentially leading to a crash. Other problems due to underinflated tires include: poor fuel economy and/or handling, and premature or irregular tread wear.
