The Bluetooth phone system lacks a phone book.
it’s base price is only $1800 higher than that of the Equinox primarily due to standard backup camera, floor mats, tint, fog lights, and USB integration
USB-ready radio and XM satellite radio are standard across the board
You can program the power liftgate to automatically stop at any desired point of its travel to clear a low garage door or to provide pet ventilation
The power liftgate makes loading and unloading easy, especially when your arms are full.
The GMC Terrain justifies its price premium over the similar Chevy Equinox with more standard equipment, and it's bringing that list up to date with better connectivity this year.
All Terrains now get standard air conditioning; power windows, locks and mirrors; fog lamps; an AM/FM/CD/XM audio system with three months of service and a USB port for media players; a power driver seat; ambient lighting; and a rearview camera.
On the options list, there's a touchscreen-driven navigation system that bundles in 10GB of music storage next to 30GB of map storage; Bluetooth; remote start; steering-wheel audio controls; leather upholstery; and a DVD entertainment system. All told, a loaded Terrain passes the $35,000 pricetag, which nearly overlaps the sticker on a larger, seven-seat GMC Acadia.
Later this year, the Terrain adds GMC Intellilink, which integrate smartphone features via Bluetooth and USB. So enabled, the Terrain's audio system will be able to stream audio from smartphones through apps like Pandora.
The 2012 GMC Terrain is starting to get the infotainment knack; new connectivity this year brings streaming audio into the mix.
