General Motors expanded their line-up of compact crossovers with the GMC Terrain in late 2010, a soft-roader featuring squared-off edges and flared fenders. There is a choice of two engines from 2013 onwards, namely a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder and a 3.6-litre V6, both featuring "SIDI" direct injection, a 6-speed automatic, and either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. The interior features ambient lighting, clever storage spaces, a closed compartment under the center armrest for a notebook binder, four power outlets, optional power liftgate, basic keyless entry with optional remote start, single-zone a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with USB support, optional 8-speaker premium audio with available 10GB hard drive with DVD and navigation, optional DVD rear-seat entertainment with two screens, optional power driver's seat, standard rear camera, optional sunroof, common power accessories, cloth or leather upholstery, and a choice of 17-inch, 18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels. A Denali version was offered from 2013, with a chrome grille and some additional chrome trim. Safety features include stability control, traction control, six standard airbags and ABS disc brakes.
