2010 GMC Terrain: The Feel Good Button

May 03, 2010

According the Terrain's owner's manual, pushing the ECO button does the following:

  • Makes the transmission upshift sooner.
  • Makes the throttle less sensitive.
  • Locks the torque converter sooner and unlocks it later.
  • Reduces fuel to the engine during deceleration.
  • Lowers the engine's idle speed.
  • Reduces performance.

But isn't it really there just to make you feel better?
