Safety has not been neglected in the 2011 Terrain model either as engineers have created a more stable body system that is capable of providing the best in accident protection. Single piece body side stampings have been used to created a tighter overall structure with reduced gap tolerances and a better frame integrity. This has produced a solid vehicle that will provide additional insurance in case of an accident.
OnStar version 9.0 has also been added as part of the standard options, which also includes the latest in voice recognition technology, allowing the fast response of emergency vehicles in case of a collision or rollover.
The 2011 Terrain is being offered in both a front wheel drive and all wheel drive models. Each of them comes with the SLE or SLT trim levels as available options. All of these models now come with the StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control systems that make it easier to maintain traction on roads when inclement weather strikes unexpectantly. There are also 6 air bags that come standard as well: dual frontal air bags, head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat mounted side air bags. They have been integrated into the interior to provide the most secure passenger compartment.
The use of high quality materials and long life components in the engine and powertrain help to reduce the need for constant service and this in turn will save customers money. Coupled with the backing of GM’s 5 year or 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, customers can rest assured that their vehicle is covered against the most common problems.
