feels solid.” Joesaid, “ The Terrain comes standard with a 2.4liter, four-cylinder, 182 hp engine. The optional 3.0 liter V6 has 264hp. Front-wheel drive is standard. Our test vehicle hadGMCs all-wheel

drive option.” Pamsaid, “ The Terrain accelerated easily and effortlessly from a dead stop. When I pushed the acellerator down at 55 miles per hour I was pleasantly pushed back in my seat as the V6 shows what it can do.The four-cylinder gets great
