The 2012 GMC Terrain receives an updated 2.4-liter engine that is now E85-compatible. Later in the model year GMC will make available IntelliLink, a service that allows customers to customize the touch-screen radio and use voice commands to operate various functions. IntelliLink uses USB and Bluetooth to connect the user's smart phone to the radio, making it possible to stream apps such as Pandora and Stitcher.

About GMC Terrain

The 2015 GMC Terrain is bigger than a compact SUV, but smaller than a midsize SUV. Its rugged exterior styling looks the part of the GMC family, even if its styling isn't everyone's idea of exterior beauty. The roomy interior offers luxury touches and room for five, as there's even a Denali model available. The available all-wheel drive (AWD) is perfect for inclement weather, and a choice of 4-cylinder and V6 engines offers good fuel economy or very good power, respectively. On the other hand, while the same size as the Kia Sorento, it doesn't offer a third row like the Kia. Additionally, it's not meant for off-road duty, despite the tough face. It also lags many of its competitors in cargo space.

"I traded my Jetta TDI for the Terrain because it was just too small. The Terrain has a more masculine look to it, and it doesn't have the same look as all the others in its class. So far, I've been averaging 24-25 mpg. I have gotten over 34 on a long trip with the ECO mode on and paying attention to my throttle. My only complaint is that the voice commands didn't work with my phone when I bought it. I knew I was getting a new phone in a few weeks, but when I got it (Samsung S4), the voice command still doesn't work. This is apparently a known issue and is being worked on by GM. Even with that very minor issue, I love this vehicle!"

"over 4,000 miles this summer and no problems. The drive was awesome. Time flew by and cruise control made the gas mileage unbelievable. I love the space inside tall people sit comfortably in the front or back."

Cons: "Small rear cargo, poor dash design."

"My vehicle has had two major electrical problems. One was a recall issue that has been fixed (radio and air conditioner sporadically didn't work). Recently, vehicle will only turn on about 75% of the time. If it doesn't start, the CD ejects, my time and date reset to zero, and I have to wait 10-20 seconds to try again. Taking it in tomorrow. Really frustrating. Other than that, it handles nicely. The interior is designed well, other than 2 chrome pieces on the dashboard that reflect sunlight directly into the driver's eyes. I keep a post-it note over that piece (poor design). Rear cargo isn't as roomy as it looks from the outside. I keep my son's stroller in the back seat because it doesn't fit flat in the rear cargo area. Wheel wells get in the way. These are all little inconveniences, but they add up. Gas mileage is good."
