2016 GMC Terrain Review

The perfect combination of styling utility and efficiency. The 2016 GMC Terrain At the heart of Terrain’s performance and power is the 3.6L V-6 engine. It is built to truly get you moving. Terrain’s 6-speed automatic transmission offers a wide ratio spread for power in the low gears and efficiency in the high ones while Terrain’s available intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system delivers power to the front wheels during normal driving and channels it to the rear wheels in less than favorable conditions. Practical refinement Power efficiency and cargo space that you’d expect from a larger SUV. Terrain delivers without compromise. Add new technologies like Color Touch Radio and available heated front seats along with superior fit and finish and you’ll see why Terrain is the total package. The safety of drivers and passengers is of utmost performance in the Terrain. It’s equipped with 6 standard airbags including front side-impact and head curtain as well as anti-lock brakes giving your crossover SUV safety features inside and out. The 2016 GMC Terrain. More ideas per square inch. Because more is better.
In Terrain everything has its place. The center console and instrument panel storage areas provide convenient access to those must-have items. The MultiFlex rear seat system maximizes comfort and utility with features like split and fold second-row nearly 40 inches of leg room and reclining seatbacks. OnStar 4G LTE wireless hotspot means fast and reliable internet for up to 7 devices. And the color touchscreen radio with available IntelliLink and navigation keeps you connected and on track.
Terrain surrounds you and your passengers with protection. OnStar provides emergency services so you can hit the road with confidence. A host of available proactive safety features like side blind zone alert and forward collision alert use radar and camera technology to help you avoid the unexpected. Plus the standard Rear Vision Camera is like having eyes in the back of your head.
The Terrain offers two engines: the standard 2.4-liter I-4 and the powerful 3.6-liter V6 providing the most horsepower in its class. The 6-speed automatic overdrive transmission chooses the best gear for efficiency or power based on your driving style. Automatic grade braking helps you maintain safe speed and control on a downgrade with or without a trailer. Plus get an extra dose of traction and control with available all-wheel drive and be ready for any road condition.
