Chicago Tribune

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.

Conclusion

The 2012 GMC Terrain is starting to get the infotainment knack; new connectivity this year brings streaming audio into the mix.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
