2013 GMC Terrain Reviews
The 2013 GMC Terrain has gone from a quiet addition to legitimately popular selection in as demand for fuel efficient crossovers increases across the business the GMC line, which is not surprising.
The five passenger GMC Terrain is a near relative of the Chevy Equinox, as well as the two have some great characteristics in common--really good fuel economy in certain versions, a huge inside, and thoughtful touches and characteristics. The Terrain does not seem a little like its companion piece, however--it's more a latter day HUMMER than even its own brand's trucks and other sport utes. It's really a striking from some angles, hard nosed appearance, and more a Tonka novelty from others, notably at its exceedingly boxy fenders.
There's a group of controls to the right of the driver, a group that seems like the exact same unit within the Chevy Cruze sedan. It really is framed in low gloss metallic trim, and capped by means of a hood that shields the conventional 7inch touchscreen from direct sunshine.
The Terrain has more in keeping with the Equinox under its sheetmetal--specifically, its drivetrains and many of its other driving hardware. The foundation Terrain sports a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine outfitted with direct injection. Dig deeply into the four-cylinder's powerband, and also you'll likely find it has loads of impulse for nearly every demand; the V6 is needed only if you are consistently filling all the Terrain's seats, or maxing out the six-cylinder's 3500 pound towing capacity. Front wheel drive is conventional, with all wheel drive an alternative.
Without a seat, the Terrain might hit some family shoppers as less useful, but we have found the Terrain fairly comfortable, even for four adults. GM has carved out great space inside a tidy bundle, and fitted the Terrain with really comfortable front bucket seats and a back seat with enough support.
The back seat slides over an 8-inch bridge so passengers or freight can get higher precedence, and the seats fold to boost storage up to 31.6 cubic feet. On The Other Hand, the Terrain's freight floor is high for its category, as well as the seats do not fold fully level. Excellent security scores are a part of the Terrain profile. The NHTSA gives four stars to it overall, as the IIHS calls it a Top Safety Pick. Denali models have conventional blindspot monitors with cross traffic alerts.
Newly standard is a touchscreen-driven audio program that'll also have the ability to connect music apps on smart phones to the auto's audio system, enabling Bluetooth voice management and streaming music from sources like Pandora. Alternatives include a back; Bluetooth; remote start - seat DVD entertainment system; and a navigation program with music storage and harddrive map.
