2010 GMC Terrain: Very Comfortable Little Truck
February 23, 2010
This one is for 1487.
Yesterday I was a little hard on our Terrain, first calling it underpowered and then the whole ladder incident. But now I have something nice to say about the GMC: It is very comfortable.
On Sunday it hauled my family (wife, kids and dog) out to La Quinta and back for a little time with the grandparents. That's a 300 mile round trip.
Sure, I had the Terrain by the scruff of the neck the entire time trying to keep up with traffic and climb some of the steeper grades, but I was comfortable. And so was my family. And my dog.
The Terrain's seats are very well shaped and its people space is abundant. It's also quiet on the inside, it feels solid, rides well and it handled the Couchella Valley's 50 mph crosswinds easily. No drama at all.
In fact, its high speed stability might be its best dynamic feature. I like vehicles that feel locked down and the Terrain takes a nice set on the road.
