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.

sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle,
especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say
that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road
worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.
