2011 GMC Terrain Review

(3 Stars)  Solid crossover could use a diet

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
One of many new crossovers, the GMC Terrain falls into the category of crossovers that just don't offer enough. The overly heavy Terrain has been bogged down by a very heave chassis and this turns into a lack of performance. This crossover has many great features, but with a issue with acceleration and a lot to desired in the fuel efficiency department, it does not seem that it is quite up to par with some of the other models in its class.

There is no doubt the design that GMC has put together for the body of the Terrain is bold and very attractive. However the broad body can be problematic to some consumers especially when trying to park in tight spots. With the weight issue, most will only be interested in the optional 3.0 L V-6 and will leave the stock 2.4 liter 4 cylinder motor out of the decision making process. There are some various trim packages to choose from and some options packages will add a surprising amount of gadgetry for the price.
