MEET CHALLENGES IN MIAMI, FLORIDA HEAD-ON IN THE NEW 2017 GMC TERRAIN

October 26th, 2017 by

The chassis and suspension tuning of the new 2017 Terrain models at Lehman Buick GMC provide nimble maneuvering in and around Miami, Florida. It’s the kind of precision our South Florida customers have come to expect from a GMC crossover SUV. Features that include Electronic Power Steering (2.4L models), an available Intelligent AWD System and an available 3.6L V6 engine with 24 MPG HWY [1] and class-leading 301 horsepower are all integral parts that help make 2017 GMC Terrain models some of the most capable crossover vehicles you’ll find in Miami. Terrain’s precision engineering allows you to handle unexpected situations whenever they arise. With traction control and available all-wheel drive, even when the road and weather conditions of South Florida turn challenging, you’re still in complete command. The Rack-Mounted Power Steering system featured on 2017 GMC terrain 2.4L models delivers assist electronically, entirely eliminating the need for a power-steering pump. It also provides owners in Miami, Florida with a steering boost when they need it for parking, tight maneuvers or other similar situations. Terrain’s Traction Control helps you take the most out of the traction available to you, sensing when one or more wheels are spinning on slippery surfaces or difficult surfaces, and applying the brakes and slowing the wheel(s) down in order to help maintain traction.

For brisk acceleration and reduced rpm’s on the Miami roads and highways, the advanced 6-Speed automatic transmission with overdrive of the 2017 GMC Terrain provides a wide ratio spread for strong, consistent acceleration at almost any speed. Direct Injection (DI) allows for precise fuel distribution and faster more efficient combustion, and is featured on both 2017 Terrain engines. With DI, the air and fuel mix more completely for crisp throttle response and a leaner blend for better efficiency when operating at cruising speeds. Both Terrain engines also feature VVT (Variable Valve Timing) that helps these all-new crossover models at Lehman Buick GMC deliver the power of a high-performance engine with the low-speed response you need for trailering or climbing steep South Florida inclines. GMC Terrain’s with the 2.4L I-4 engine also have an Eco-Mode button that allows the engine to hold gears longer, with only a slight decrease in acceleration. The new 2017 GMC Terrain is bringing crossover efficiency to previously unexplored levels, using a variety of innovative features to give our Miami, Florida customers the elevated driving experience they’ve been seeking.

Enhanced Towing Using Technology
We understand that many of your activities in Miami, Florida may require some gear that simply can’t fit inside of your new 2017 GMC Terrain, such as a boat. That’s why these new Terrain models feature innovative towing technologies, and offer an accessory Trailering Package, that will help owners tow all of their favorite recreational equipment. Opt for Terrain’s 3.6L V6 engine for access to a max trailering capability of up to 3500 lbs [2], or up to 1500 lbs with the 2.4L I-4 engine [2]. The Trailering Equipment Package available on 2017 Terrain’s at Lehman Buick GMC come with a structural welded steel hitch that features a standard 1.25″ receiver that fits most ball-mount assemblies and includes a four-wire connection (available as a dealer-installed accessory). The Trailer Sway Control feature of the 2017 GMC Terrain works to keep both you and your trailer heading in the proper direction, automatically. This innovative system uses StabiliTrak sensors to detect the rocking of a swaying trailer, then applies the vehicle’s brakes in order to help bring it back in line if needed.

Terrain’s towing tech certainly doesn’t stop there though. To prevent unwanted acceleration and reduce the need for braking during a hill descent in Miami, 6-speed automatic models include the “smart” Automatic Grade Braking feature that monitors braking, acceleration, throttle position and even whether a trailer is connected. And to help prevent your 2017 GMC Terrain from rolling back while on a hill or steep South Florida incline, Hill Start Brake Assist takes over whenever you lift your foot off the brake by holding full brake pressure momentarily, giving you extra time to move your foot over to the accelerator. And with the Rear Vision Camera System of the all-new Terrain displaying a real-time image with grid lines in the color touch-screen when you’re in reverse, it’s now easier than ever for owners in Miami, Florida to safely back up to their trailer. The 2017 Terrain models at Lehman Buick GMC are more versatile than ever, and make for an ideal crossover vehicle option when heading out for some South Florida fun. Come by for an up-close look at everything these all-new models have to offer, and find the 2017 GMC Terrain that best meets your own unique needs today!
