2021 GMC Terrain Review

Just like its name, the 2021 GMC Terrain conquers all types of territory and accompanies you on any trip you take. Even if you’re just balancing commutes, errands, and the school carpool around Fenton and Lansing, Michigan, it’s right there for you. LaFontaine Family Deal can make the introduction and get you into the driver’s seat if you choose.

How Much Space Will I Get?

Your comfort should always come first when you spend a lot of time in the car, as it’s your home away from home. Luckily, your new home, the GMC Terrain, offers an available 8-way power driver’s seat that can be equipped with both heat and ventilation. You’ll even get the option for heat in the back. An optional dual-zone automatic climate control system also circulates a warm (or cool) atmosphere throughout the cabin.

Adorn the cabin with upgraded leather seating and a leather-wrapped steering wheel to match. Light will stream into the cabin through the available SkyScape® power sunroof.

Generous proportions fit your family. Here’s more about what dimensions you can find inside the GMC Terrain.

To store your packages and sports gear, stand near the optional hands-free liftgate to access the 29.6 cubic feet of trunk space. With multiple configurations, you can enlarge the area to 63.3 cubic feet for extra space.

How Can I Stay Connected, Informed, and Entertained?

The available 8-inch touchscreen featuring the GMC Infotainment System with Navigation leads you in the right direction. It also enables you to use your smartphone apps through Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, which gives you access to your music library and connects you to everyone in your contact list. Be sure to add wireless charging, so you can keep your phone charged.

While you stay connected and informed, you should stay entertained, too. Music will flood your vehicle through the optional Bose® premium 7-speaker audio system. To keep those in the back seat occupied, add a rear-seat infotainment system with or without a DVD player.

Which Safety Systems Come Standard?

When driving around town, feeling secure on the road comes from great safety coverage. Several safety systems come standard in the Terrain, including Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.

With the available HD Surround Vision camera, you’ll have multiple cameras that can display a digital overhead image of the area surrounding your vehicle, allowing you to see from various angles. With the available Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, they provide additional alerts for harder-to-see areas around you.

As your children grow, they will eventually take on driving responsibilities. That might mean more concerns for you. However, those can be alleviated with standard Teen Driver technology. You can set up boundaries and monitor your teen’s driving practices until you’re confident that they’re ready to go solo.

What Kind of Engine Does the GMC Terrain Use?

One standard engine, the 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine, powers your drives with the shifting versatility of a 9-speed automatic transmission. To add to that precision, the Traction Select System provides you with Normal, Snow, and Tow/Haul modes. When properly equipped, this impressive vehicle can tow a maximum of 1,500 pounds. This amount of power comes in handy when you need to bring along a trailer or your boat.
