GMC Terrain 2010 breaks cover

General Motors revealed the final addition to the crossover lineup of GMC— the GMC Terrain 2010. Positioned right below the complete-size Acadia, Terrain is sharing its architecture Theta with the all-new Chevrolet Equinox. The brand new unit is replacing the GMC Envoy and Pontiac Torrent.

2 engines are available for clients to choose from. Here it is: a new, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine having direct injection, expected on delivering highway 30 mpg economy of fuel. They achieved the peak fuel economy in part with the 'ECO' mode, activated through console-mounted button. So, when it's engaged, it's lowering the converter torque lockup speed on 1,125 rpm, helping save fuel on units equipped perfectly with this motor. 'The new Terrain brings GMC’s history of innovation and engineering excellence into a smaller, fuel-efficient package for today’s buyer' affirmed Susan Docherty, the vice president of Buick-Pontiac-GMC. 'The capability attributes that make a vehicle a GMC are ingrained in Terrain, making it an appealing choice for existing traditional SUV customers who are looking for distinctive styling and increased efficiency'.

Available also will be a 3.0-liter DOHC V6 direct injected engine delivering 264 horsepower (estimated). Both engines are fitted to a 6-speed auto transmission. The electric power rack-mounted steering system of the Terrain provides bigger efficiency of fuel on 4-cylinder-equipped units, saving almost eleven miles per gas tank. 'GMC is a strong, core brand for GM and the Terrain crossover SUV is the latest example of how we’re adapting to changing market conditions' Docherty said. 'As we first demonstrated with the Acadia crossover, GMC is committed to offering the capable vehicles customers seek, with the personal technologies they expect'.
