    2012 Terrain Getting New Gadgets

    2012 Terrain Getting New Gadgets
    GM adding a host of new technologies to GMC's cute ute.

    The GMC Terrain is expected to gain a slew of new features for 2012 as GM strives to keep the successful CUV fresh in its third model year. According to dealership sources, the Terrain will end up getting a new infotainment system and other technological gadgets.

    It should come as no surprise that Terrain is slated to get the ‘next-gen’ infotainment system; GMI has known for some time that the technology would be available in the CUV’s platform mate, the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, as well as the 2012 Chevrolet Volt under the branding “Chevrolet MyLink.” MyLink adds new connectivity options for devices like smartphones and media players, integrated Pandora® Internet radio, hands-free voice control and a high-resolution touch screen interface.

    Among the new safety features coming to Terrain for 2012 are a blind spot alert system, a collision avoidance system and a lane departure warning system.

    GM’s lane departure system utilizes a pair of cameras that monitor highway markings from their perches at the front of the vehicle. The system alerts the driver with visual and audio cues when the cameras detect the vehicle veering outside its lane.

    GMI has not been told if the Chevrolet Equinox will also receive the new safety features.

    Production of the 2012 GMC Terrain begins July 18th at GM’s CAMI Automotive assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario.

    I'm glad to hear that they're trying to keep the Terrain fresh. I still haven't been inside of one yet, but would love to check one out.

    Wow, maybe holding off is going to pay off in the end. I just found a 2011 Terrain SLT-2 AWD 4 banger, onyx black and black interior. Maybe i'll wait a while and get dad to order one of the 2012 models and spend the GM points he has racked up on that. ^^ Were going to get one during clunkers but hard to find then and dad didn't order one or talk to a dealer so it passed. Now he has points to spend so win win for me in the end.

    Are there any other GM products that have the lan departure system or collision avoidance? LaCrosse and some others have the blind spot deal for sure. If they add a Denali trim I might be set for life with it.

    Same interior pretty much as the nox except for red lighting not ice blue but the visability is different. That was part of my issues with choosing which one because they both look good but need to feel comfortable with driving it. But I do agree glad they are keeping it fresh, especially with the infotainment system.

    Interesting... it's good to hear they are adding content instead of taking away.

    Given all the cameras, I'd like to see an Infiniti-like around view monitor. I'd also like to see the Terrain get a proximity key entry and start system.

    Also hope the 'upgraded' infotainment is capable of streaming via bluetooth.

    Does this mean a revised center stack?

    Sounds great, I hope this new mylink system is trouble free, The safety features sound great.. Now GM, how about a little power boost as well nothing wrong with a little more power.

    Not really. It'll just run off the existing touch screen.

    it's good, but when I saw the title , the first thing I thought and hoped for was their first Powermat application

    I can't wait for this...

    Is the lighting fixed on all GM models or do some of them allow you to change the interior highlights like the Mustang?

    Re: 2012 Terrain Getting New Gadgets

    I can honestly count the number of times we have moved the passenger seat on one hand and we have owned the vehicle over a year. With the rear seat moved all the way back and the front seat moved all the way back you still have an enormous amount of room for the rear passengers.

    The technology is cool.
    Just that time again to ignore certain people. I'm certain they will continue to try and instigate and antagonize while throwing up their arms saying they did nothing but are here on a civil basis. Not worth the time seeing how some just seem to know all.

    Re: 2012 Terrain Getting New Gadgets

    This tech should be on every GM car, CUV/SUV. As an example, Focus pretty much has these features plus "Park Assist". It's not a CUV....but just sayin'....price of entry these days.
