2010 GMC Terrain news, pictures, specifications, and information

GMC EXPANDS ITS ENGINEERING EXPERTISE WITH THE EFFICIENT AND CAPABLE 2010 TERRAIN

• All-new, five-passenger crossover SÚV delivers expected §egmènt-best highway fuel economy of 30 mpg

• Comprehensive package of premium features, wîth an emphasis on vehicle safety and passenger comfort

• GMC's engineering excellence and innovation advances wîth direct injection technology, programmable power liftgate and standard rear vision camera


GMC's all-new 2010 Terrain makes its world debut at the 2009 New York International Auto Show. The Terrain is a five-passenger crossover SÚV that blends bold styling wîth fuel efficiency and premium features.

'The new Terrain brings GMC's history of innovation and engineering excellence into a smaller, fuel-efficient package for today's buyer,' said Susan Docherty, Buick-Pontiac-GMC vice president. 'The capability attributes that make a vehicle a GMC are ingrained in Terrain, making it an appealing choice for existing traditional SÚV customers who are lòòking for distinctive styling and increased efficiency.'

A new, 2.4L four-cylinder engine that features direct injection is expected to deliver best-in-§egmènt highway fuel economy of 30 mpg. Maximum fuel economy is achieved in part wîth an 'ECO' mode that is activated via a console-mounted button. When engaged, it lowers the torque converter lockup speed to 1,125 rpm to help save fuel on models equipped wîth the 2.4L engine.

Also available will be a 3.0L DOHC direct injected V-6 engine delivering an estimated 264 horsepower (197 kW). Both engines are mated to efficiency-enhancing six-speed automatic transmissions and offer a refined, confident driving experience.

'GMC is a strong, core brand for GM and the Terrain crossover SÚV is the latest example of how we're adapting to changing market conditions,' said Docherty. 'As we first demonstrated wîth the Acadia crossover, GMC is committed to offering the capable vehicles customers seek, wîth the personal technologies they expect.'

The 2010 Terrain goes on sale in late summer, wîth front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models offered in SLE and SLT trim levels. A comprehensive list of standard and available features includes purposeful technologies such as:

• Standard rear vision camera

• Programmable power rear liftgate

• Bluetooth hands-free phone capability

• MultiFlex sliding rear seat that increases passenger comfort or provides optimal cargo space

• Remote vehicle start

• ÚSB audio connectivity; MP3 playback

• Seven-inch touch-screen navigation system and a 40-gigabyte hard drive

• DVD-based rear-seat entertainment system wîth two independent screens

• Standard OnStar and XM Satellite Radio

Segment-best safety is anticipated, wîth features that include four-wheel disc brakes wîth StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control, as well as six standard air bags: dual frontal air bags; head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags. OnStar wîth one-year Safe and Sound service is also standard.

Bold styling

Terrain has a balanced, athletic stance and offers a commanding view of the road. Its design is characterized by bold, muscular fender flares, representing GMC's aesthetic. Surfacing is angular yet refined, wîth a strong and capable front-end appearance that features precise, squared-off edges.

'We wanted to carve the GMC Terrain away from the pack and establish its identity as a powerful, fresh crossover SÚV wîth a confident and strong stance,' said John Cafaro Jr., director of exterior design, Global Crossover Vehicles. 'Everything about the Terrain communicates a sense of tailored toughness and passionate craftsmanship.'

Additional design features include a unique, three-element grille that is accented by a prominent chrome surround and projector-beam headlamps mounted in large, rectangular housings wîth chrome accents.

Interior details and flexibility

The Terrain's rich, premium interior is influenced by industrial sculpture and exudes refinement exemplified by contrast stitching and fine materials that create a structured look throughout the cabin. A 'floating' center stack, highlighted by warm ambient lighting, houses a multitude of ergonomic comfort and convenience controls.

The Terrain also features great attention to detail, wîth smart use of storage space and compartments that are suitable for a variety of items. They include an oversized glove box; a closed storage area in the instrument panel above the center stack; a closed storage compartment under the center armrest large enough for a laptop computer; and two-tier storage in the doors.

Terrain's seats were developed to provide outstanding comfort and the standard MultiFlex sliding rear seat can be moved fore or aft nearly eight inches (200 mm), providing increased passenger comfort or greater rear cargo capacity. The 60/40-split rear seatback offers additional configurations for passengers and cargo; and the rear cargo area offers 31.6 cubic feet (894 liters) of storage, as well as one of the Terrain's four auxiliary power outlets.

Confident and agile driving experience


Two new engines are offered on all Terrain models, each wîth fuel-saving direct injection and variable valve timing technology. Vehicle highlights include:

• New 3.0L DOHC direct injected V-6 engine estimated at 264 horsepower (197 kW), which delivers an estimated 25 mpg highway, 18 mpg city (EPA certification pending).

• New 2.4L Ecotec direct injected I-4 engine estimated at 182 horsepower (136 kW) that delivers an estimated 30 mpg highway, 21 mpg city (EPA certification pending)

• Driving range of more than 500 miles (800 km) wîth both engines, for less-frequent fill-ups

The powertrains are mounted on a rigid, body-integral structure, wîth single-piece body side stampings and targeted applications of high-strength steel. It is the foundation of a confident driving experience that is both smooth and responsive.

GM's first application of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology is used on 2.4L-equipped models. ANC uses microphones to detect booming sounds inside the vehicle and sends counteracting sound waves through the audio system's speakers, ensuring a quiet driving experience at almost all vehicle speeds.

The Terrain rides on a 112.5-inch (2,857 mm) wheelbase and features a four-wheel independent suspension system, wîth wide front and rear tracks that enhance the ride and handling. A family of 17-inch, 18-inch aluminum and 19-inch chrome-clad wheels is available.

Terrain's rack-mounted electric power §teering system provides greater fuel efficiency on four-cylinder-equipped models, saving nearly 11 miles per tank of gas.

GMC Terrain will be produced at the CAMI assembly facility in Ingersoll, Ontario.
