2010 GMC Terrain: Good Stuff, but What's With the Cargo Area?

February 08, 2010

Let's start this off on the right foot: I like our 2010 GMC Terrain. I like its easy-to-use navigation/audio interface. I like its overall interior styling. I like its suspension tuning, and despite the fact that this four-cylinder model isn't all that powerful, I find the power it does have to be adequate. And I like that and the efficiency that comes with it.

So I was surprised to see that its rear seats don't fold flat.

Fold-flat rear seats have become an axiom among many of the Terrain's competitors as they greatly increase the utility of the cargo area. Not a huge deal, but a feature you'll miss when you don't have it.

On the up side, this is what a small-items tray looks like when it's done right. Even I can't find a way to dump my small items on the floor from this massive bin.

Go, home team.
