2011 GMC Terrain Review, Fantastic Cross Over SUV

Today I am going to talk about my week spent driving the 2011 GMC Terrain. This is a mid-size crossover SUV that has loads of style inside and out and comes in at a reasonable price even fully loaded. The Terrain FWD SLT-2 that I tested has a base price of $29,900 and my review unit had an as testing price of $36,335. My test unit was Olympic white on the exterior, a color that most would call pearl white, and had light titanium perforated leather inside.

It also had dual DVD screens in the headrests of the front seats, navigation, a DVD player, 40GB HDD, 19-inch chrome wheels, and the trailer package. The engine was the optional 3.0L V6 backed by a 6-speed auto. Inside the Terrain, it is one of the best looking cars I have ever tested. The materials were all top notch and the workmanship was fantastic. The car had two tone dark and light gray leather with perforated inserts and red stitching. The look was very sporty and cool.

The seats were also very comfortable and easy to sit on for long rides. I was glad to see this after the seats in the Cadillac SRX I tested were so hard. The navigation screens and both of the screens in the back of the headrests were nice resolution and worked very well. The center cluster near the nav screen was clustered with buttons. This was my only gripe about the interior. There are so many buttons there that I hovered over them looking for the right control. I am sure with more than a week's time spent with the car I could figure things out more quickly.

The 2011 GMC Terrain rides very well with a comfortable ride and only a bit of road noise. I think this car road every bit as well as the Cadillac SRX at more than $20,000 more. The only thing I didn’t like about the 2011 GMC Terrain was the 3.0L V6 engine. The Terrain is a heavy vehicle and the V6 felt underpowered for the car. I can’t imagine how sloth-like the Terrain would be with the standard 4-cylinder. The 2011 GMC Terrain will get you out in traffic; just don’t make the mistake of pulling out with cars bearing down on you too quickly.

Other than the switches being so clustered on the dash I found not one other thing about the Terrain to complain about. I really loved this SUV. For a mid-size and affordable SUV for people that want, style that can live without lots of performance the Terrain is going to be a very hard vehicle to beat.
