2011 GMC Terrain | Small SUV | StabiliTrak for Vehicle Safety
Bret Dick, Performance Integration Engineer for 10 years, helped develop StabiliTrak on the GMC Terrain Small SUV. StabiliTrak detects when there is loss of control of the vehicle and helps the driver with applying brakes and even cut engine power to guide the driver in the direction they want to go.
StabiliTrak uses a steering angle sensor, yaw sensor, and lateral accelerometer wheel speed sensors, with the hydraulic brake pump to assist the driver in quick situations. This technology helps make the Terrain a safe vehicle and in Bret's words, save lives. For information go to http://www.gmc.com/terrain/features-specs/options.html.

GMC Terrain | Small SUV | Vehicle Performance Technology
The vehicle performance to the 2012 GMC Terrain Small SUV is discussed by
Doug Smith (Production Engineering Manager), Tim Herrick (Global Vehicle
Chief Engineer), Dave Poniatowski (Production Manager), and Lisa Hutchinson
(Crossover Product Manager). The GMC Terrain has two powertrains available-
the 4 cylinder with a 182 horsepower engine, a towing
capacity of 1500 lbs and the 6 cylinder with a towing capacity of 3500lbs.
Both powertrains use Variable Valve Timing, Direct injection Dual Overhead
CAMs, and 6 speed transmissions which drive performance and fuel economy.
The 4 cylinder engine has an Eco Button, or Economy Mode, which provides
the maximum amount of fuel economy by changing the shift pattern.
The Small SUV is also an All Wheel Drive (AWD) Vehicle which provides power
to all four wheels when necessary. The 112"" wheel base is also the largest
in its segment for ride handling reasons and provide a comfortable 2nd row
egress. The 5 passenger vehicle uses a multi flex seating system to expand
its cargo capacity. Using all the benefits and features available to
crossovers, the Terrain also has child safety locks right on the console.

how do they adjust to the realities of 2014?
