2012 GMC Terrain--front

GMC is General Motor's fastest growing brand, due in part to its crossover, the GMC Terrain, which attracts families that want the size and cargo capacity of a small SUV, but don't want or need third-row seating. To meet customer demand, it doubled production of the Terrain since 2010 and plans to lure more buyers away from competitors such as the Ford Edge--and even upsell current Chevrolet shoppers--by adding additional technology options and giving consumers bigger bang for their buck.

2012 GMC Terrain--front quarter angle

The GMC Terrain is a slightly dressier version of its more mainstream fraternal twin, the Chevrolet Equinox. With its more aggressive exterior, bolder badging, and a lot more chrome, the GMC Terrain attracts a tonier buyer used to a little flash, and who is looking to turn a few heads on the road.

The oversize GMC badge on the chrome grille is easily readable from 100 feet away, and it's complemented by the chrome on headlamps, and if you're a baller, the optional 19-inch wheels.
