GMC Terrain Blends Power and Fuel Economy for Columbia, SC Drivers

GMC Terrain V6 Engine

The available V6 engine in the GMC Terrain offers Columbia, SC drivers up to 3500 pounds of trailering capacity.

Since its launch for the 2010 model year, Columbia shoppers have flocked to Jim Hudson GMC for the GMC Terrain. Terrain’s 182-horsepower direct-injected four-cylinder engine offers Columbia drivers a spirited performance and features better highway fuel economy than any other SUV or crossover. Direct-injection technology and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) help both the standard 2.4L I-4 engine and the available 3.0L V-6 engine burn cleaner and operate more efficiently, making Terrain incredibly responsive and fuel-conscious. You don’t have to wait for the payoff—it’s power you can feel the moment you accelerate. The 2.4L I-4 comes with an “ECO” mode to help save fuel. At the press of a button, the engine makes a slight sacrifice in acceleration in exchange for additional fuel economy in city driving. Under EPA testing, the front-wheel-drive, four-cylinder Terrain (which is the more popular option in Columbia) produced an estimated 32 highway miles per gallon, a figure comparable to compact cars of just a few years ago, and provides an estimated cruising range on the highway of up to 600 miles per gallon.

The available 3.0L V-6 engine offers 264 horsepower and 222 lb-ft of torque, which allows it to clock a 0-to-60 mph time of 7.8 seconds. With an available receiver hitch, Terrain 2.4L I-4 engine models can trailer up to 1500 pounds. Equipped with the 3.0L V-6 engine, Terrain offers unsurpassed maximum trailering capacity in its class—up to 3500 pounds. Put into more practical terms, the I-4 is great for trailering a pair of jet skis or motorcycle, while the V-6 can handle most single-axle camping trailers.

A 6-speed automatic transmission features a wide ratio spread with a very low first gear for brisk acceleration from a stop, and a very high sixth gear overdrive ratio that helps save fuel during highway cruising. Thanks to Engine Grade Braking, the transmission also changes gears as conditions change, reduces brake wear and gives you more control on downhill slopes.

Both engines in the Terrain feature direct-injection technology. Fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber, right next to the spark plug for fast, efficient combustion. In addition, digital sensors allow each injection of fuel to precisely match power demand, resulting in cleaner burning and efficient operation. Instead of having to tune the engine for power or fuel economy, our engineers are able to do both.
