    Terrain Production Starts Today

    Terrain Production Starts Today
    The latest out of GM started rolling down the line!

    During today's GM Tweet Up event news came out that production of the 2010 GMC Terrain started today. While this news is minimal in comparison to the slew of product news and tid-bits out of GM Design today thanks to 100 consumers getting to see GM's entire future product portfolio, this is welcomed news for Terrain fans.

    Terrain will be launching with two direct-injected engines. The first being an ECOTEC 2.4L with 182 HP, good for a coveted 32 MPG on the highway and a 3.0L High-Feature V6 with 255 HP. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic. In addition, Terrain features Bluetooth, XM NavTraffic, navigation, Pioneer sound system and more gadgets.

    The Terrain is produced alongside the recently-launch 2010 Chevrolet Equinox at the CAMI Automotive plant in Ingresoll, Ontario. GM says you can expect to start seeing Terrains show up in dealerships within 2-3 weeks.

    I'm hoping it looks better in person as that brown does nothing for me. My wife's Torrent's lease will be up in a few months and this is one we'll be looking at, maybe. I hope they bring back leasing at least for the Terrain. I did see the new Equinox and it's pretty sharp. The only problem is: It's hard (for me) as a long time Pontiac owner to step down to a Chevy. I have to admit my daughter's husband has a Ford Edge and it looks good. All these decisions I have to make now since Pontiac is closing. Damn you GM!

    I hope that's not the sentiment most people have, "step down into a Chevy"... like Pontiac hasn't been plasticized turds for two plus decades. If many people think like this, GM may have a problem w/ lost market share. As a life long Chevy guy, I love the G8 and Solstice but would have problems stepping down into a Pontiac.

    *fingers crossed for a Zeta Caprice/Impala/Chevelle*

    There is no question about it, the Chevy is a step UP from the Ford Edge.

    They need to up Equinox production. Every dealer ship is sold out. Those SUVs are on fire, they are selling faster than Camaros. I just went to the second biggest dealer in my area and they said it would be until Oct. for me to get one.

    I hope I like the Terrain better in person. As of now there is no chance I'd get one over an Equinox.

    One of the first times in awhile that I have not liked the styling of one of GM's new vehicles - the grill is overdone, kind of like Ford/Lincoln grills are.

    With the better looking Equinox around with all the same hardware, the point of this vehicle is...? I still don't get GMC. I know its about money today, but I still don't get it in the long term.

    Still like the Equinox 100X better.

    The grill just doesn't look good. I hope it looks better in person.
