GMC's all-new Terrain seems like an odd addition to its lineup, which already includes many SUVs. But the Terrain is unlike past GMC SUVs, using modern construction and technology.

With its big, square fenders and headlights, the Terrain has bold SUV style.

The biggest engine available for the Terrain is this 3-liter direct injection V-6, a break from V-8s of the past. 263 horsepower is complemented by an EPA highway mileage of 25 mpg.

The interior capacity is typical of SUVs, seating five and including a sizable cargo area in the back.

Built with a fully independent suspension, unlike the body on frame SUVs of the past, the Terrain has carlike handling.

The navigation system has a round, multidirectional button as the main hardware interface. The LCD is also a touch screen, but it is a reach from the driver's seat.

The navigation system stores its maps on a hard drive, and includes live traffic. The system will find traffic jams on your route and calculate detours.

The navigation system also has a weather data feed.
