General Motors' continued efforts to differentiate its truck brand from the rest of its offerings are in full force this year.
The automaker's redesigned Terrain crossover has an all-new design and a transmission that set it apart from the related Chevrolet Equinox. Although they're the same under the skin, they don't look and feel much alike anymore, even when driven back-to-back.
Otherwise, GMC's lineup sees mostly minor changes. The Yukon range adds a new 10-speed automatic (co-developed with Ford, of all automakers) on versions with the big 6.2-liter V-8 engine.
