The 2011 GMC Terrain is offered in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, in SLE and SLT trim levels. All models include four-wheel disc brakes with StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control, as well as six standard airbags.
The Terrain enters the 2011 with an enhanced OnStar 9.0, which delivers improved speech recognition, and a pair of new exterior colors: Steel Blue Metallic and Summit White.
A 3.0L V-6 engine delivering 264 horsepower is optional; and for 2011 it becomes E85-capable. Like the base Ecotec 2.4L four-cylinder engine, the V-6 is backed by six-speed automatic that helps save fuel through reduced engine speed at highway speeds.
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, with a strong and capable front-end appearance that features precise, squared-off edges.
Additional design features include a unique, three-element grille, with a prominent chrome surround and projector-beam headlamps mounted in large, rectangular housings with chrome accents.
The Terrain’s rich, premium interior is influenced by industrial sculpture and exudes refinement exemplified by contrasting stitching and fine materials that create a structured look throughout the cabin. A “floating” center stack, highlighted by warm, ambient lighting, houses ergonomic comfort and convenience controls.
Terrain’s standard MultiFlex sliding rear seat can be moved fore or aft nearly 8 inches, providing increased passenger comfort or greater rear cargo capacity.
Base model estimated mpg: 22/32
Estimated starting price: $24,250
