2011 GMC TERRAIN
I bought it because it is sharp looking. I wanted this suv because winters in New England are snowy and slippery. I have not driven in the snow yet but I'm sure it will be safer than a car. Great sound system and all the features I wanted. Leather, heated seats sun/moon roof. Small trunk space but I don't need a lot of room there.
2010 GMC TERRAIN
Get the All Wheel Drive. I am disappointed I bought the FWD, it is still good in bad weather with the traction control. But, it's a nice car. Has lots of power. comfortable. Especially since I am used to small cars, It's just right for me.
2011 GMC TERRAIN
Great looking SUV. Has every option and gets 26 mpg on the highway. It is the SLT2 with leather seats, NAV, Chrome package and the metallic black color makes it really stand out. I mentioned a few but there are too many options to list. Never had a problem with this vehicle.
2010 GMC TERRAIN
This particular car was in perfect condition and had only 36K miles. I decided on looking to buy aTerrain because of "just-right" size and relatively large carrying capacity. Nicely appointed cabin with heated seats and back-up camera. Good performance with V6 engine. Rugged look and GMC name added to desirability (vs similar Chevy offering).
2012 GMC TERRAIN
Great SUV! It now has 65,000 miles. Not a single problem. 4 cylinder engine gets very good gas mileage: 22 - 27 MPG. Economical to own. AWD is great in snow and on winter roads. Comfortable interior with good space for hauling stuff. Electronics are not overly complex to operate while driving. Only disappointment is intrusive engine mechanical noise when accelerating. Engine and engine compartment need better sound insulation. But, I would buy this car again in a heart beat! American made, great quality, economical and tough-looking styling...one very good compact SUV.
Used GMC Terrain Information
The GMC Terrain is a compact SUV offered by GMC since the 2010 model year. The Terrain slots just below the Acadia as GMC's smallest SUV. The Terrain is a bit of a segment buster, larger than the majority of compact SUVs on the market, yet smaller than a midsize offering. The Terrain is one of GMC's best-selling vehicles, only topped by the manufacturer's Sierra full-size pickup. The five-seat crossover shares a platform and drivetrain options with the related Chevrolet Equinox.
The GMC Terrain is powered by a base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or an optional 3.6-liter V6. Models from 2010 to 2012 were available with a 3.0-liter V6, which the aforementioned 3.6-liter replaced for the 2013 model year. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The GMC Terrain is known for its comfortable and well-appointed interior, which was further refined with updated for the 2016 model year. The refreshed 2016 Terrain also includes a new front fascia and cosmetic touches throughout the Terrain's exterior. The Terrain is available in four trim levels: SL, SLE, SLT and Denali, which GMC markets separately. The top Denali trim features a distinct grille, more chrome trim, larger wheels and additional standard equipment. The base SL model is only available with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. SLE, SLT and Denali trims can be configured with either the 2.4- or 3.6-liter engine and in front- or all-wheel drive.
The GMC Terrain, thanks in part to the vehicle's pedigree, is nicely equipped with standard features such as a USB port, ambient lighting, satellite radio, GM's OnStar telematics system and a rearview camera. 2015 and newer models include an updated version of OnStar that features a 4G LTE data connection and a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required).
The Terrain offers excellent fuel economy, especially with the base 2.4-liter engine that can deliver up to 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.
The GMC Terrain is a consistent Top Safety Pick recipient from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The Terrain received a four out of five star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), earning four stars in the frontal crash and rollover tests, and five stars in side crash tests.
