2017 GMC Terrain Review

You need nothing less than the perfect blend of styling utility and efficiency; in a phrase – professional grade. The GMC Terrain offers all of that and more! There are 5 models to choose from the SL the SLE 1 and SLE 2 the SLT and the top-of-the-line Denali. One size doesn’t fit all that’s why the Terrain’s interior offers flexible space as well as creature comforts so everyone is comfortable. The Multi-Flex sliding rear seat moves back for a total of nearly 40 inches of leg room and you can fold the second-row seats down for all the cargo space you need. Stay connected and on track with OnStar and available 4G and wifi connectivity for up to 7 devices available voice-activated IntelliLink and Navigation. The standard engine gets an impressive EPA estimated 31 miles per gallon highway. Opt for the available V6 for the most horsepower in its class. Plus Terrain’s got your back with driver-assist technologies. Available in a variety of color and interior combinations customize the Terrain to compliment your style. The GMC Terrain delivers when it comes to your demands.
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 with available 4G wireless hotspot means fast and reliable internet for up to 7 devices. And color touch audio 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.
