Default 2013 GMC Terrain Does 0-60 in 6.7 Seconds



The GMC Terrain is getting a new engine option for 2013: a 3.6L V-6, that will propel the crossover from 0-60 mph in 6.7 seconds.

“Straight-line acceleration to 60 in under seven seconds is a great proof point for the 2013 Terrain, but the benefit this engine upgrade has for drivers goes much deeper,” said Essy Ipakchian, lead development engineer for the Terrain. “They’ll notice improved passing power with fewer downshifts, as well as stronger towing performance.”

Making 301 hp and 272 lb-ft, the V6 engine in the Terrain will offer acceleration as well as a 3,500-pound tow rating. Fuel economy is expected to be 17/24 mpg for front-drive models and 16/23 mpg when paired with Terrain’s all-wheel drive system.

In comparison, the Scion FR-S gets a 0-60 mph time of around 6 seconds, and is a car praised for its light weight, unlike the heavy crossover. The V6 engine will be offered as a $1500 stand-alone option for 2013 Terrain models.

6.7 seconds is pretty good for a vehicle like this, enough to smoke some civic's on the road!
