GMC took some risks with the 2013 Terrain’s exterior styling, says Cars.com reviewer Mike Hanley. Between its large grille — chrome on the top-of-the-line Denali trim — and exaggerated, blocky fender flares, the Terrain has a jarring look. Mike says GMC got some things right, though: The Terrain’s newly available 3.6-liter V-6 is significantly stronger than the older V-6. The crossover’s cornering ability got better too; it encourages you to push it even harder in turns.
