GMC Terrain Reaction

The other day, I had a chance to take a close look at a GMC Terrain which was probably a GM employee drive-home, or perhaps a press fleet car, which I spotted around the Troy area.

I can't say I was too excited about the styling. While it is certainly not bland, it has a very brutal style to it, with the very large trapezoidal grille and exaggerated flared fenders. It was the fenders that bothered me the most, they seemed cartoonish, and reminded me of the many non-functional embellishments of the Hummer brand, such as the non-functional inflater hubs on the wheels. The fenders look more inflated than tough, and a tough look doesn't work well for the Terrain anyway because it is not much of an off-road vehicle.

To me, it is just too far towards ugly to consider buying one.

Edmunds has a nice photo gallery of the Terrain here:

From pictures I saw in a booklet at my local GMC dealer, it looks like a 4 seater. I hope I am wrong.

i just bought one, i really liked it, the exterior is smooth and the interior is freakin awesome, and it feels great driving it, the v6 3.0 responds great. i do recommend the crossover.

I LOVE it. I think the Equinox is a little too minivan'ish. I purchased mine about a month ago, replaced a jeep. MUCH, MUCH better gas mileage.
