Top 5 small off-road worthy Crossovers reviewed
( 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
that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road
worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.
Test Drive The All New 2010 GMC Terrain SLT
In this video I give a short tour and test drive of the all new 2010 GMC
Terrain. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior
of this suv while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting
unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I show the suv idling as well
as take it on a thorough test drive through the city and highway on various
surfaces. A thorough drive of this suv designed to give others a greater
overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Proudly Closed Captioned. Adam Barrera at highmileage.org reviews the 2010
GMC Terrain SLT compact crossover and places it in the context of its
competition. 24x7: http://twitter.com/highmileage The GMC Terrain is the
perfect picture of a compact crossover, but not for default reasons.
You won't find clever cargo management solutions
like the Dodge Journey's in-seat and in-floor storage.
Cargo space and passenger volume measurements lie comfortably mid-pack. And
No vehicle in this segment will leave families craving space.
The base cloth interior's fashion-savvy high-contrast upholstery
might feel more premium than this tester's leather swatches,
and color-coordinated LED lighting through the center stack
makes this the classiest compact crossover at night.
But that's not how the GMC Terrain advances the science of crossovers.
Its navitainment system and powertrain are simply the most advanced on the
A well-done navitainment system isn't just convenient
it helps reduce driver distraction.
The Terrain's display employs every pixel as efficiently as possible,
combining firm-coded radio presets with panels that can split radio and
navigation information when necessary.
OnStar is still the smartest suite of telematics in the business.
No other system can automatically transmit physical crash statistics to
emergency services personnel, or stop a stolen vehicle that poses a public
Most technology in the Terrain is literally state-of-the art.
However, the Bluetooth system relies on cell phones' internal voice
recognition, and cannot directly download a cellular directory.
Under the hood, there are no caveats.
The GMC Terrain and its Chevrolet Equinox brother
are the only vehicles in the segment with naturally aspirated
direct-injection four-cylinder engines.
The high-tech approach makes this one of the most advanced
regular-production four-cylinder engines in any car ever produced.
The 2.4-liter motor provides just enough power to transport any team and
without excessive complaint.
A console-mounted eco button carefully manages the transmission's response
to throttle input.
Use that button, and it's easy to reach federal fuel economy estimates.
The Terrain can travel up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway.
That's better highway mileage than Honda, Toyota, and even the Ford Escape
A standard rear-view camera and strong safety ratings will attract small
But the GMC Terrain's clever navitainment system and world-leading
should capture the attention of enthusiasts.
