IntelliLink and OnStar 4G LTE
GMC IntelliLink is offered on SLE, SLT and Denali. It combines wîth OnStar to bring §egmènt-exclusive infotainment technology to Terrain at a time when more and more consumers are buying smartphones. IntelliLink extends the OnStar experience from safety and security to information and entertainment by seamlessly integrating the capability of a smartphone into the vehicle so that hand-held phones may be safely stowed while driving.

Text Messaging Alerts and Siri Eyes Free features aid drivers wîth the latest in technology. With Text Messaging Alerts, the driver can be alerted to new messages and can have them read aloud, view and respond to them (functionality depends on the smartphone). Siri Eyes Free enables iPhone4S and later users to access Siri via the §teering wheel controls and check calendar entries, have text messages read and respond to them, place calls or call up music.

Android phone users can also use the §teering wheel controls to access their phone's voice recognition features.

Additional IntelliLink features include:
◾Hands-free voice control system powered by Nuance®, which allows simple voice commands to initiate phone calls and select radio stations or media from portable MP3 players and smartphones.
◾Pandora Internet radio and Stitcher SmartRadio allow users to create personalized radio stations based on favorite artists or genres. IntelliLink integrates control of both of these apps for a driver-directed listening experience.
◾Gracenote® identifies the music collection on the driver's ÚSB device, MP3 player or smart phone and presents information such as artist name, genres and album cover art on the IntelliLink screen.
◾ÚSB connectivity adds the ability to play music files directly from flash memory devices, and gives the customer the ability to update IntelliLink wîth future enhancements.

GMC's Color Touch navigation radio features a touch-screen control that incorporates all of the IntelliLink features and more. It is available on SLE-2, SLT models and Terrain Denali. SiriusXM Satellite Radio (with three-month trial period) is standard on all models.

Complementing IntelliLink to enhance Terrain's connectivity is new OnStar wîth 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the vehicle is on and comes wîth a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.

4G LTE is the most current and fastest mobile data network – 10 times faster than 3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware. And wîth OnStar, it also offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the same network and it's easy to use: If the vehicle is on, the connection is on.

At the time of purchase, six months of OnStar Guidance plan includes all of OnStar's advisor-based safety and security features, including Automatic Crash Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance, as well as turn-by-turn navigation. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

Five years of OnStar Basic Plan includes RemoteLink Key Fob Services, allowing owners to remotely start and lock/unlock a car (if properly equipped), and activate the horn and lights from anywhere wîth a data connection. It also includes OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, which runs monthly checks of a vehicle's engine, transmission, anti-lock brakes and more, and Dealer Maintenance Notification, which sends diagnostic report directly to a preferred dealer to simplify service scheduling.

Powertrain details
GMC Terrain's standard Ecotec 2.4L engine and available 3.6L V-6 feature fuel-saving direct injection and continuously variable valve timing. The 2.4L delivers 182 horsepower (136 kW) wîth an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 32 mpg (FWD models).

The 3.6L is rated at 301 horsepower (224 kW) and 272 lb-ft of torque (369 Nm) and uses lightweight components that contribute to the Terrain's fuel efficiency while boosting horsepower. An integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design saves about 13 pounds compared to a non-integrated design, while a composite intake manifold saves about 5.5 pounds vs. an aluminum intake. Additionally, a lightweight structural front cover and high-strength connecting rods save additional weight.

An efficient six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models and an 'Eco' transmission mode on 2.4L-equipped models alters shift points to improve fuel economy.

Chassis and suspension
Terrain engineers have ensured a smooth, quiet ride by building on a body-integral structure wîth single-piece body side stampings and targeted applications of high-strength steel. The strong structure supports a four-wheel independent suspension system that – wîth a long, 112.5-inch (2,857 mm) wheelbase and wide front and rear tracks – contributes to car-like ride and handling traits. The long wheelbase and wide tracks reduce body roll for a more stable driving experience.

Additional features include:
◾Rack-mounted ZF Steering Systems electric power §teering gear on 2.4L-equipped models; hydraulic power rack-and-pinion §teering on 3.6L V-6-equipped models
◾Available all-wheel drive
◾Standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control helps keep the vehicle in its intended path in the event of an emergency maneuver
◾Standard four-wheel anti-lock brakes wîth traction control.

Safety and crash-avoidance features
Superior safety features are a cornerstone attribute of the GMC Terrain. Built on a solid structure that includes strategic applications of high-strength steel to protect occupants in the event of a crash, the Terrain is equipped wîth several safety components to avoid crashes or protect occupants in the event of one, including:
◾Six standard air bags including dual frontal air bags, head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags
◾Standard four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes wîth Electronic Brake Force Distribution, StabiliTrak electronic stability control, traction control and rollover mitigation.
◾Standard rear-vision camera that helps drivers identify objects behind the vehicle
◾Standard tire pressure monitoring system.

Additionally, active safety features alert the driver to potential crash threats. They're standard on Denali and offered on SLE-2 and SLT models in two Driver Alert Packages:
◾Driver Alert Package 1 includes Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Park Assist
◾Driver Alert Package 2 (requires Driver Alert Package #1) includes Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
