It’s one of the biggest expenses for any driver purchasing a new vehicle: depreciation. While not every car loses half of its value as soon as it drives off the lot, purchasing a new SUV that holds its value better can mean thousands of dollars saved. According to General Motors’ Residual Value Management’s performance report based on Auto Leasing Guide’s 36-month data for July/August, the forecasted depreciation for GMC vehicles is lower than its competitors and lower than the same time a year ago.
In particular, this bodes well for shoppers seeking out a GMC Terrain in Columbia, South Carolina. In all, the forecasted resale value of the GMC Terrain after three years gives it a 1.2-point lead over competitors such as the Nissan Murano, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Ford Edge–no surprise to Columbia car shoppers who have had to do a lot of searching in order to find a dealer that’s been able to keep one in stock. Supplies of GMC Terrain SUVs nationwide have been tight ever since its debut as a 2010 model.
Terrain offers seating for five in a modern, stylish package. Its standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine makes smooth power while delivering an EPA-estimated 32 highway miles per gallon, and an available 3.0L V6 engine gives Terrain the power to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Terrain also features standard equipment originally found in luxury vehicles, such as an onboard USB port for connecting an iPod or MP3 player to the available Pioneer 8-speaker premium sound system, and a rearview camera for additional visibility when backing up. Terrain also features six months of OnStar Directions and Connections as standard equipment, allowing drivers to get directions to just about anywhere by pressing the blue OnStar button and speaking with a live OnStar Advisor who can download navigation directions to the vehicle without the driver putting the vehicle in park.
2012 GMC Terrain Coming Soon to Columbia SC
GMC isn’t resting on its laurels with the GMC Terrain, offering new features for the 2012 model including standard IntelliLink touchscreen display that will allow drivers to choose from even more music options such as Pandora internet radio when using their smartphone. Controlling that system is even easier thanks to an steering wheel-mounted control that is now standard on all trim levels. For a little extra touch of style, new 18-inch chrome wheels are standard on the top-tier SLT-2 model and are available on SLT-1 and SLE-2 models. While the changes aren’t completely radical, they should make the GMC Terrain an even more popular choice for Columbia, South Carolina’s drivers
