GMC presented the new Terrain, that has a more elegant design, highlighted by the floating rear column, ending in a sloping roofline. The medium SUV is a big bet for the company, since this category is the second largest on the automotive market.

The power will be transferred to the front wheels, through 9-speed manual and automatic transmissions, while an all-wheel drive system will be offered in the optional equipment.

In terms of security systems the car has a Forward Collision Alert system with Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure and the Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert system.
