New GMC Terrain Eats Treacherous Weather for Lunch

Gmc by Martha Hindes

The clouds were foreboding, the sky had turned dark. A long distance drive? Not a walk in the park.

As if on cue, rain came down in sheets as we started the ignition and headed toward the interstate. Foolish in monsoon weather? No way. We were testing the all-new 2010 GMC Terrain for five, the smaller crossover from General Motors' "professional grade" division. Four-wheel drive gave us confidence. No skidding. No kidding. It gripped like glue. Top safety pick status made us feel secure. Our hunky carbon black metallic SLT-1 version lapped up miles like a pro, earning 20/29 MPG with fuel stingy "eco" mode in play.

Inside  was cozy, with 8-way, power, heated leather seats. Pioneer premium sound fended off the ding of raindrops. Our tilt and slide sunroof wouldn't be needed. The power, programmable liftgate would, to quickly stash items. New Ecotec four-liter power was surprisingly punchy, merging nicely with agile ability in a $32K package.

With handsome styling inside and out, and power to tow, we think Terrain fills the bill when driving demands make one "boldly go" -- in spite of hazards ahead.
