American Women Love the GMC Terrain

The second model year of the GMC Terrain proves to be a success bigger than the American group which produces it, GM, anticipated it to be. According to the figures provided by the American manufacturer and strangely enough, the vehicle is more appealing to women, who like to purchase this model more than any other GMC car.

GM says that 46 percent of the people who buy the Terrain are women. That's about 20 percent more than the overall average for the brand. The increasing demand for the model already prompted GM into announcing, three times, an increase in production for the model at the CAMI Automotive Plant in Ingersoll, Canada.

“We've had an outstanding response to the Terrain since it launched last Fall,”
said Lisa Hutchinson, GMC Product Marketing director. “The Terrain is attracting new buyers to the brand who are looking for an SUV that offers fuel economy, exterior and interior styling, quality and safety that maintain GMC’s reputation for engineering excellence.”

The Terrain is being sold starting at $24,995 for the front-wheel drive model and $26,745 for the all-wheel drive one. It comes in two trim levels, SLE1 and SLT2. The former is equipped with a 2.4l direct-injection engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the latter comes packing a 3.0l direct injection V6 engine.

As standard, the GMC Terrain is equipped with rear-vision camera, USB connectivity, electronic child safety locks, six airbags, electronic stability control and OnStar. The vehicle is also the recipient of a 2010 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
