2010 GMC Terrain pricing announced

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The 2010 GMC Terrain SUV, the byproduct of the Chevy Equinox, will hit the showrooms of General Motors this coming September bringing along with it a price tag of $24,995 for the FWD model and $26,745 for the AWD model.

Included in both prices is a destination and freight charge of $745. Power under the hood for the base SLE1 model is a 2.4L four-pot powerplant that delivers 182hp and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel economy of this unit is pegged at 32mpg for highway driving as estimated by the EPA. Included in the standard equipment of the SUV are integrated rear-view camera system and an audio system that includes AM-FM-CD and 6 speakers plus USB interface and XM satellite radio service, six passenger safety airbags, vehicle stability control by StabiliTrak and OnStar.

Features for the higher trim level SLT2 includes leather seating, a premium sound system by Pioneer, powered liftgate, sunroof and a special chrome-look package.

Including destination and freight, the price tag begins at $29,995. The Terrain SUV, besides the 2.4L unit, has also a 3.0L direct injection V6 unit that is capable of 265hp and a fuel economy rate of 18mpg city driving and 25mpg highway driving.

Additional standard equipment for the V6 versions are built-in navigation system and rear seat DVD information and entertainment system. Pricing and details will be provided near the date of release of the model.

Influenced by industrial sculpture, the premium cabin of the new GMC Terrain conveys a strong sense of refinement. This is seen on the use of fine materials and contrast stitching, thereby creating a structured appearance throughout the interior. The new Terrain comes with a "floating" center stack – as underscored by warm ambient lighting – accommodates a number of ergonomic comfort and convenience controls.

In addition, the new GMC Terrain employs a number of smart storage space and compartments, like the oversized glove box and the two-tier storage in the doors. The Terrain also features a closed storage compartment under the center armrest as well as a closed storage area in the instrument panel just above the center stack.

Meanwhile, GMC designed the seats of the new GMC Terrain to offer superb levels of comfort. The new Terrain comes with a standard MultiFlex sliding rear seat that can be moved forward or rearward by nearly eight inches (200 mm).

This way, passengers could make themselves more comfortable or increase the rear cargo capacity of the Terrain. Furthermore, the 60/40-split rear seatback allows for more passengers and cargo. Interestingly, the 31.6-cubic feet (894 liters) rear cargo area features one of the vehicle’s four auxiliary power outlets.

GMC Terrain sporting a starting price of $24,995

GMC has announced that its all-new Terrain five-passenger crossover will arrive in showrooms in September sporting a starting price of $24,995 for the front-wheel drive model. An all-wheel drive model starts at $26,745. Both prices include a $745 destination and freight charge.

"The Terrain allows us to build on the evolution we started with the Acadia, applying the distinctive styling and capabilities that have always been a part of the GMC DNA to smaller, more fuel efficient vehicles that customers are seeking in today's rapidly changing market," said Susan Docherty, GM North America Vice President, Buick-Pontiac-GMC. "We think Terrain is a bold statement of GMC's key role within the reinvented General Motors."

The base SLE1 model comes standard with GM's new 2.4L direct-injection engine and six-speed automatic transmission that delivers EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 32 miles per gallon while offering a unique MultiFlex rear seat configuration that can optimized for either class-leading passenger legroom or nearly 64 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. The base price also includes unexpected standard features, such as an integrated rear-view camera system and six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with USB connectivity and XM satellite radio service, along with a full suite of safety equipment, including six airbags, StabiliTrak vehicle stability control, and OnStar.

The top-of-the-line SLT2 trim level, which features leather seating, a premium Pioneer sound system, a power liftgate, sunroof and a special chrome appearance package, starts at $29,995 (including DFC). The Terrain also offers a powerful 3.0L direct injection V6 engine and a host of optional features like integrated navigation system and a rear-seat DVD infotainment system.

The GMC Terrain will be built at the CAMI assembly facility in Ingersoll, Ontario.
