Do you have $24,995? How about a GMC Terrain

2010 GMC Terrain ponders its options in life

If you have a bumper sticker that says "Boxy does it best!" then this is the crossover for you! General Motors has taken pains to separate the Terrain from its sister vehicle, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox, but as your high school synchronized swimming coach may have told you: different doesn't mean better.

“The Terrain allows us to build on the evolution we started with the Acadia, applying the distinctive styling and capabilities that have always been a part of the GMC DNA to smaller, more fuel efficient vehicles that customers are seeking in today’s rapidly changing market,” said Susan Docherty, GM North America Vice President, Buick-Pontiac-GMC. “We think Terrain is a bold statement of GMC’s key role within the reinvented General Motors.”

Both the Terrain and Equinox present a lot of value for the money with a nice compliment of standard features. The Terrain comes with a backup camera as standard on all of its models, a commendable decision and one that I wish all manufacturers would follow . Besides the camera, is the Terrain's unique styling worth a $1,810 premium over the Equinox? That is a question only you can answer.
