2010 GMC Terrain: Quick Power Liftgate Action

October 06, 2010

As power liftgates go, our GMC Terrain's is pretty quick. Just press the fob's button or the liftgte's touchpad and up it goes. No beeping, no hesitation, just action. I timed it to be about 6-and-a-half seconds going up. Lowering it is similarly quick, and this is done again by the fob or by by pressing the button on the bottom of the liftgate. A video of the Terrain in action follows after the jump, as does an older video of the Flex's (slightly slower) liftgate that I took a couple years ago.

Ford Flex (about 8 and a half seconds)

In the grand scheme of things, a 2 second difference is pretty trivial. But I'd wager the quick time is indicative of the design effort GM put into its new small crossovers.
