Small crossover No. 2: GMC Terrain
Small crossover No. 2: GMC Terrain
Roll-out: August
Price: Not announced
Fuel economy: 22 city, 32 hwy with 4-cyl.

The Terrain is GMC's version of the new Chevrolet Equinox. The basic idea was to create a small crossover that appeals to people who want a look that GM calls "tailored toughness." Looking it over, we might suggest a different tailor but, hopefully, buyers will like what they see on the showroom floor.

The Terrain's attractive interior, which will be bathed in warm red light, will be much less controversial than its outside. Both the Equinox and Terrain retain the handy back-and-forth sliding rear seat, allowing owners to easily trade legroom for cargo space.

Even though Americans still want their SUV's, fuel economy is a bigger deal now, so the Terrain offers an "Eco" mode button that trades a measure of performance for better mileage.
