The GMC Terrain receives quite a few exciting revisions for 2013. An upscale Denali Model is now available featuring more luxury and a selection of 18 or 19-inch wheels. The optional V6 is new and now displaces 3.6 liters up from 3.0 last year. Despite this bump in size and corresponding bump in power, GMC has managed to keep fuel economy in line with the previous, smaller V6. A new Safety Package is available for 2013 and several new interior convenience features are available as well.
Powerful and efficient engine selection; sharp styling inside and out; both available engines are flex-fuel compatible
Starting about $25,500, the 2013 GMC Terrain is one of the most affordable crossover vehicles in its class; a class that includes the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The interior features a dual-cockpit design; ice-blue ambient lighting and sophisticated, classy appearance touches that make it look much more expensive than it is.
