Starting at just under $24,000, the 2010 GMC Terrain is one of the most affordable vehicles in its class, which includes competitors Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The interior features a dual-cockpit design, ice-blue ambient lighting and cool black and silver accents that give the Terrain a sense of class. Storage areas are everywhere in the cabin, such as an oversized glove box, a closed storage bin in the instrument panel above the center stack and a closed storage bin under the center armrest large enough for a laptop computer. The rear seats again in 2010 feature MultiFlex, which allows the seats to move back and forth a total of eight inches for the best rear legroom in the segment.
The 2010 Terrain features rocker panels integrated into the doors, narrowing the area over which a passenger must step. The body is now stiffened with single-piece side stampings plus high-strength steel in critical areas. In addition to the efficient 4-cylinder engine, the Terrain' steering system is rack-mounted but electrically power-assisted, which helps maximize efficiency.
