2010 GMC Terrain

New York, New York – General Motors will present the world debut of the all-new 2010 GMC Terrain at the New York International Auto Show. The Terrain is a five-passenger crossover SUV with bold styling, fuel efficiency and premium features that will be built in Ingersoll, Ontario.

“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, vice-president of Buick-Pontiac-GMC. “The capability attributes that make a vehicle a GMC are ingrained in Terrain, making it an appealing choice for existing traditional SUV customers who are looking for distinctive styling and increased efficiency.”

A new, 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine with direct injection is expected to deliver best-in-segment highway fuel economy of 7.8 L/100 km.  An “eco” mode, activated by a console-mounted button, lowers the torque converter lockup speed to 1,125 r.p.m., to help save fuel on 2.4-litre models.

A 3.0-litre direct-injected V6 engine, delivering an estimated 264 horsepower, will also be available. Both engines will use a six-speed automatic transmission and will have a driving range of more than 800 km.

The 2010 Terrain will go on sale in late summer, with front- and all-wheel drive models offered in SLE and SLT trim levels. Standard or available features will include a programmable power liftgate, Bluetooth capability, sliding rear seat, remote starter, USB audio connectivity, touch-screen navigation with 40-gigabyte hard drive, DVD-based rear-seat entertainment system with two independent screens, and standard rearview camera.
