You are in the GMC Terrain
What is this discussion about?
#1 of 37 2012 Terrain, should I wait or get 2011.
Aug 14, 2011 (2:17 pm)
Looking for a new Terrain, I received the following update from GMC chat online about the differences between 2011 and 2012.
Seems like the only difference is the camera view in the dash and the E-85 engine which doesnt mean anything in the NE. Of course the elimination of the color I want( cyber grey) ha ha. The link above talks about content and of course would not mention any part of manufacturing changes that might occur in the 2012.
ShouldI wait for a 2012 and hope there are behind the scene improvements or just get a 2011. Whats your thoughts.

I would wait for the 2012 upgraded audio system with smartphone integration. That's the only thing I consistently think is lacking in my 2011.
#3 of 37 GMC IntelliLink for 2012 Terrain?
Aug 15, 2011 (8:50 pm)
Looking to order a new 2012 GMC Terrain SLT-2 AWD. Does anyone know if IntelliLink is available for 2012 Terrain right now? GMC News site says the following:
"For late 2012 model year introduction, GMC will make IntelliLink available to Terrain buyers." - does that mean it won't be available until later this year or sometime next year? Thanks!
#4 of 37 Took a test drive. Winey

Test drove the 4 and the 6 cylinder and I was disappointed with the engine noise on both. Love the looks the ride and interior. Darn winey engines....
#5 of 37 Still no dual-zone climate control
Aug 19, 2011 (7:33 pm)
I was so hoping that GM would offer dual-zone climate control on the 2012 Terrain and Equinox but no such luck. For me, its absence is a deal breaker. It's inexcusable that at this price point it's not even available as an option. Heck, even the Hyundai Tucson is available with it! Too bad, as it's the one thing standing in my way of buying a Terrain.
#6 of 37 I went with 2011 SLT
Aug 22, 2011 (7:14 pm)
So far very impressed with the quietness, especially the 4 cyl on the highyway. Only 2100 RPm at 70MPH. My subaru is at 2900rpm at 70MPH. It pretty slow off the line but Its ok since gas isnt getting cheaper ever and I am willing to take the trade off.

As of right now that is the only information I have as well. This line just simply states that IntelliLink will be available on the 2012 Terrain; however, it will not be available at the beginning of production (which was mid July). I am unsure specifically when this will be available. I would definitely recommend speaking with your dealer. I apologize I don't have a more specific answer with a specific date.

#8 of 37 Still liking my SLT but see poor headiner fit.
Aug 26, 2011 (8:49 pm)
Another update on the 2011 SLT with Sunroof . It is visible thru the dark portion of the windshield , the headliner has a very poor fit on the front where it mets the windshield.
I need to inspect another Terrain with sunroof to see if it is widespread or not......

Christina /GM Customer Service,
Thanks for the reply! I spoke with 2 locak dealerships in the area (CT) - neither has more specific answers on timing of IntelliLink.

I would recommend just asking a dealer or sales staff to keep you updated as to when it will be available. I would also recommend checking with the web site for updates as well.
