GMC Terrain Traction Select System
Along with its two powerful engines, the GMC Terrain offers other features that enhance its towing capabilities. When you choose a model equipped with all-wheel drive you also get the Traction Select System so you can tow with confidence. This system includes these modes:
- FWD: This function decreases your fuel consumption during everyday drives by mechanically disconnecting the rear axle, which eliminates drag.
- AWD: Shifting into AWD mode will automatically send vehicle power to all four wheels, allowing for greater traction when roads are slick.
- Off-Road: When you’re itching to trade in paved roads for rugged paths less traveled, Off-Road mode auto-adjusts the AWD system for better traction and stability control in dirt, gravel, and sand.
- Available Tow/Haul Mode: This available mode enhances your towing experience with greater trailering capabilities through Trailer Sway Control while improving traction on boat ramps or uneven roads by automatically engaging AWD mode.
