( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built
on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a
sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle,
especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say

worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Terrain: GMC's Terrain has
been out since 2010 and since it's debuted the Terrain and it's cousin the
Chevrolet Equinox have made into many suburban home garages. 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.

2012 GMC Terrain | Small SUV | Vehicle Overview
The 2012 GMC Terrain Small SUV is overviewed by Tim Herrick (Global Vehicle
Chief Engineer), Dave Poniatowski (Production Manager), and Lisa Hutchinson
(Crossover Product Manager). They explain how the Terrain's high tech
engine has great fuel economy with the benefits of a crossover for carrying
passengers or cargo. The 112"" wheel base is the largest in its segment
which provides for an easy 2nd row entry and egress.
Standard Interior Features-
* OnStar with turn by turn navigation
* XM Satellite Radio
* Multiflex seating system
* Color touch screen radio with 7"" High Definition screen
* Rear DVD system with two screens
* Power lift gate
* Remote start
Safety was also a key concern in the development of the SUV. The designers
knew this vehicle was going to be a family vehicle. Standard Safety
* 6 standard airbags
* traction control
* electronic stability control
* rearview camera
The Terrain also comes available with two drivetrains, the front wheel
drive and the all wheel drive (AWD), both of which are available in the 2.4
liter 4 cylinder (estimated 32 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway) and
the 3 liter 6 cylinder.
The designers really focused on quality and professional grade engineering

in a compact SUV.

restraint for your child's age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with the

rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or Booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant
restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with a passenger air
bag. See the Owner's Manual and child safety seat instructions for more
