GMC Terrain Ride & Handling


Stability Control/Traction Control Standard

Helping to keep you firmly in control, the StabiliTrak stability control system and full-function traction control are both standard on the 2011 GMC Terrain.  StabiliTrak is an engineering advance designed to improve safety, stability and control on most road surfaces.  Sensors read the position of your steering wheel, vehicle speed, brake pressure, lateral acceleration and turning rate, and feed the data to an onboard computer.  If conditions cause an inadequate response to your steering input, the computer adjusts both engine speed and brake pressure to individual wheels to help you keep on track.  The GMC Terrain’s StabiliTrak system also includes sensors programmed to help lessen the chance of a rollover.

Hold Steady

The 2011 GMC Terrain brakes have an ingenious hill-hold feature.  If you stop on a hill – at a traffic light or a stop sign, for instance – it keeps the vehicle from rolling back while you’re moving your foot from brake to accelerator.  It’s one of the many engineering applications that make the GMC Terrain a pleasure to drive.

The Confidence of Being Connected

The GMC Terrain is engineered to provide a confident driving experience that is both smooth and responsive.  Coupled with its rigid steel structure, the GMC Terrain’s long wheelbase and wide, athletic stance help create the sensation of being connected to the road.  Building on that firm foundation, GMC engineers specified components you might associate with a premium sport sedan:  four-wheel independent suspension, variable-assist rack-and-pinion power steering and vented four-wheel disc brakes with ABS.  Precisely tuning those elements, they were able to give the GMC Terrain impressive handling characteristics.  And for all its utility, Terrain delivers a comfortable ride.

The 2011 GMC Terrain’s available intelligent All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system delivers power to the front wheels during normal driving, channeling it to the rear wheels as well in conditions such as rain-slick pavement, snow or mud.  It works seamlessly and automatically, with no action required by the driver.
