2010 GMC Terrain Priced

June 25, 2009

GMC says the 2010 Terrain crossover will start with a base price just below $25,000.

Front-drive Terrains sticker t $24,995 including destination, while the all-wheel-drive edition starts from $26,745.

Using a platform shared with the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox, the GMC Terrain is set to slot into GMC’s lineup as a little brother to the successful Acadia full-size crossover. Under its creased hood are new powertrains, a choice of  a four-cylinder or a V-6.

The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder is the first four for a GMC crossover or SUV since the 1980s, and it makes an estimated 182 hp. GM predicts best-in-segment EPA fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The available 3.0-liter V-6 is a downsized version of the Lambda crossover’s 3.6-liter; it’s estimated at 264 hp and 18/25 mpg. Both Terrain engines feature gasoline direct-injection with variable valve timing, and both are mated to six-speed automatics. An “ECO” button on the dash in the four-cylinder model lowers the torque converter lockup speed to 1,125 rpm for enhanced efficiency.

The Terrain seats five, and has a flexible second-row bench that boosts cargo or passenger space depending on its setting. Standard features include a rearview camera, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with USB connectivity, six airbags, stability and traction control, and OnStar. The SLT2 trim adds leather, a power liftgate, a sunroof, and a Pioneer audio system, with a top base price of $29,995.
