A more (truck-like clientele as it were) looking for a crossover that fits their personallity; not wrong, just different.

With the demise of the Vue the three remaining will suffice (each aiming for a different demographic).
    Very well stated.

    I am against the grain here in that I like the Terrain. But, look at what I am typically drawn to - large GM full size SUVs. All three (remaining) are great vehicles ergonomically, feature, and quality speaking. But, just like the Lambdas, it is hard to see myself in one without some sort of serious optional engine upgrade which would place 0-60 times in the mid six second range. But, again, lack of an optional engine upgrade has not hurt Lexus, so GM is doing the right thing likely in streamlining.

    I'm afraid the day of the performance engine is going the way of the dinosaur. I also love the large GM SUVs and I will be sad to see the direction they take in the future. It's sort of interesting that GMC is marketing the Terrain as a "smaller SUV" instead of "crossover."

    I know, I know....

    There seems to be some hope from Ford (meaning GM will mimic if successful) with their Twin Turbo V-6 355HP engine. The extra 52 horsepower in a 2010 SRX would make the difference for me I think....or even in an Enclave. I am not a speed demon and I don't race anybody. I just like the feel and proper sound of very brisk acceleration. It makes me feel good.

    I get it. When you're on the on-ramp, you don't want to get run over. Besides, there's nothing like a big V8. I have stated before that I really hate the wimpy exhaust note of my SRX.

    Yea, it's really too bad you can't get a V8 in the new SRX. A GM small block V8 tied to a Magnaflow true dual exhaust is sex!

    Well, I finally saw a Terrain on the road. It's even worse than I originally thought. Sorry to those who like it, but that vehicle is ugly.

    Eh, i thought it is pretty Masculine, especially for a midsize SUV crossover. I think they hit the right spot and should get a lot of male buyers that may not like the Equinox's more flowing (more feminine-ish) design.
