Here are our top 4 fun non-offroad worthy Crossovers revealed and reviewed that we've driven this year.

For 2013, GMC introduces an all new upscale trim the Denali. Power in the Terrain comes from a average 2.4 L 4-Cylinder or step up to the 3.6 L V6 to get more power out of the crossover. Fuel economy is decent too earning a respectable 22 City and 32 HWY. On the interior you will find the Terrain to have a more premium feel than it's cousin and many other crossovers with nice stitching around the cabin and soft touch interior accents. On the exterior the rear brake lights some what look like the RAV4's and many consumers think the whole shape of the car represents a brick on wheels with it's very utilitarian exterior design and it's boxy shape. Compared to it's competitors the Terrain tends to do many things very well and if you are looking at the small crossover segment the Terrain should be considered on the test drive list.
2013 Chevy Equinox v Ford Explorer v Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup AWD Tech Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford Explorer and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Overland don't have a lot in common. However all three of these vehicle have a very different approach to powering all four wheels, in other words, they all have one form or another of all-wheel-drive and terrain management technology. We thought it would be interesting, informative and fun to try these three very different AWD vehicles off-road in a real world test to see which one can best handle our Colorado Mountain off-road terrain. In this battle of 4X4 people haulers we take all three vehicles up our standard rugged Colorado trail to see which one can make it all the way to the top. Check out another fun and real world TFLcar Mashup test as we get wet, muddy and rocky in this off-road AWD technology comparison and review.
