ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

GMC's midsize Terrain SUV is adding an optional touch screen infotainment system for 2012. Officially dubbed Color Touch Navigation, the system includes a wide range of functions including maps, music, Bluetooth, weather forecasts and even a photo viewer.

Available for $795 on all 2012 Terrain models, Color Touch Navigation is similar to MyLink and IntelliLink systems from fellow General Motors brands Chevrolet and Buick, though it lacks voice control functions of those systems. It supplements the Terrain's standard Color Touch Radio, which includes several of the same features but doesn't offer navigation and other optional functions.

Integrated into a seven-inch touch screen above the Terrain's climate controls, Color Touch Navigation's major selling point is its onboard navigation capabilities. According to GMC, the system offers an updateable digital card-based map database, plus multiple map views and destination input methods. Other benefits include a three-month trial subscription to Sirius XM NavTraffic, local weather forecasts, and an SD card reader that displays pictures from cameras and smart phones while the Terrain is parked.

"Terrain's Color Touch Navigation System is practical, purposeful technology with a high-tech look and feel at an economical price point compared to competing systems," said Dave Bojanowski, a General Motors navigation systems engineer. "Anyone familiar with smartphones or tablet computers will find its 7-inch color touch-screen and large app icons intuitive and easy to use."

In addition to its navigation system, traffic reports and photo viewer, Color Touch Navigation also includes all capabilities from GMC's Color Touch Radio system. That means buyers also receive an AM/FM radio with a CD player, SiriusXM satellite radio, USB and auxiliary inputs for iPods and other MP3 players in addition to hands-free control of Bluetooth phones through OnStar. According to GMC, the system even displays album art stored on connected iPods.

The 2012 Terrain is already on sale. Its other major update for the new model year, an obstacle detection system featuring crash avoidance technology, is available as a $295 option.
