You are in the GMC Terrain
What is this discussion about?
#4 of 37 Took a test drive. Winey
Aug 16, 2011 (7:01 pm)
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

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.

#11 of 37 Re: 2012 Terrain, should I wait or get 2011. [msera]

Just bought a 2012 Terrain FWD SLE2. Have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent. Terrain is a nicer vehicle. Quieter than the Torrent, with about the same interior room. A little better performance and some nice new features. Seat backs heated, back-up camera, heated outside mirrors. Didn't get the leather interior, but it was always hot on the Torrent, no matter what you did. Dual exhaust on the V-6 is a nice touch also as is the little bits of chrome the torrent doesn't have that dresses it up a bit. My advice is to buy the 2012 Terrain.

Well, I ended up buying a FWD slt1 2011. I looked at the features for 2012 like collision avoidance and the new touch screen. The collision avoidance is only avail on the slt2 v-6 awd and the touchscreen smartphone integration was avail in late 2012. Since i dont have smartphones i didnt care about that. I also found a late model 2011 made in 05/11 and felt comfortable with it. So far 500 miles and impressed with the quietness and the transmission. I am also happy with the 4 cyl and was unsure about a 3800 lb vehicle with a 182 HP. While it is not fast off the line under normal acceleration it works quite well. Noticed my headliner does not meet the windshield and actually visably sags from the outside view. The ride is good but am considering dropping the tire pressure below 35 to get a less tire slap and improved ride on the 18". Anyone experiment with lower tire pressure.

It probably doesn't matter...but if you get the 4 cyl like I did...you will average 22 MPG! Don't want you thinking you are buying a fuel economy car!
