2011 GMC Terrain


For 2011, the GMC Terrain is unchanged other than improved voice recognition technology for OnStar.

Like the Chevy Equinox with which it shares everything except exterior styling, the GMC Terrain finds the middle ground between compact and midsize crossover SUVs. The Terrain's grown-up feel isn't just literal, however.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The
2011 GMC Terrain is a midsize crossover SUV available in SLE 1, SLE 2, SLT 1 and SLT 2 trim levels.

The SLT 1 adds the Convenience package items plus 18-inch wheels and leather upholstery. Every GMC Terrain comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder producing 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. The Terrain also comes standard with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. In performance testing, a front-drive, four-cylinder Terrain went from zero to 60 mph in 9.4 seconds -- on the slow end for the class. Estimated fuel economy stands at 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and 20/29/23 mpg with all-wheel drive. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 17 mpg city/25mpg highway and 20 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and 17/24/20 with all-wheel drive.

Safety
Every 2011 GMC Terrain comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a rearview camera and OnStar. In Edmunds brake testing, a four-cylinder Terrain came to a stop from 60 mph in 121 feet. In government crash tests, the Terrain's Chevy Equinox twin received a perfect five stars in all front and side crash categories. The GMC Terrain's cabin is remarkably stylish, particularly by the standards of this typically utilitarian segment.

Driving Impressions
On the move, the
2011 GMC Terrain is impressively quiet and boasts a comfortable ride indicative of a much bigger, more expensive SUV.
