2010 GMC Terrain – Smart Engines, Smart Performance

2010 Terrain EngineBoth 2010 GMC Terrain engines feature advanced direct-injection technology.  This allowed engineers to dial in a combination of performance, low emissions and excellent fuel economy.  The standard 2.4L I-4 on the FD model offers a highway range of up to 600 miles, and the available 3.0L V-6 is good for up to 500.  Both are coupled with efficiency-enhancing 6-speed automatic transmissions for a refined, confident driving experience.

The 2.4L I-4 comes with an “ECO” mode that allows the driver to help save fuel.  Activated via a console-mounted button, it makes a slight sacrifice in acceleration in exchange for additional fuel economy.  The 2.4L also incorporates active noise cancellation technology, analyzing interior sounds and sending counteracting sound waves through the audio system’s speakers, ensuring a quiet driving experience at almost all vehicle speeds.  If your goal is performance, choose the 3.0L V-6.  You’ll experience a 0 to 60 mph time of 7.8 seconds – and still enjoy excellent fuel economy.

A one-year OnStar Safe & Sound plan is standard on all 2010 Terrain models.  If you subscribe, OnStar can send you monthly e-mail reports of the results of key operating system checks, including the engine, transmission and more, and send you reminders of scheduled maintenance to promote maximum engine performance.

Direct Injection

Direct injection is the culmination of a decades-long evolutionary process by which engineers continually moved the point of fuel introduction ever closer to the point of ignition.  In both Terrain engines, fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber, right next to the spark plug.  In addition, digital sensors allow each injection of fuel to precisely match power demand, resulting in cleaner burning and efficient operation.  And instead of having to tune the engine for power or economy, engineers are able to dial in both.
