A couple weeks ago I had just one of those media trips coming up. It had been planned for a long time, that we would make the drive from Detroit to Chicago to cover the Chicago Toy & Game Fair, as well as a visit to Shedd Aquarium. My old Saturn could make the trip to and from Chicago, but it would not be able to hold the 5 people going, as well as our luggage. So I was very happy when GMC’s Driving the Midwest let me take one of their 2013 Terrain’s for our trip. I grew up in GM Country, so it was like having a treat from home!
We were able to fit luggage for 4 adults and 1 child, a stroller, as well as all of the goodies in the back storage area. When we drove around town no one knew it was there due to the privacy guard.
The Terrain has all of the features you can expect from most GM models including: Rear Vision Camera for back up assistance, Ambient Lighting, and a Driver Information Center. There was also optional features including heated drivers and passenger seats, XM Radio, Climate control, the option to switch into manual driving mode as needed, and power drivers and passenger seats.
We really enjoyed our time with the Terrain, and I was shocked that we only had to fill up the gas tank twice on our trip to Chicago, around town and back to Detroit. The gas mileage is about what my car gets, so it was like driving my own vehicle (just much nicer and with a lot more options!). It was hard to give the Terrain back!
If you are on the market for a new vehicle, definitely look into the 2013 Terrain. I think once you drive it you will see it might be the car for you!
