GMC Terrain Traction Select System

Every 2021 GMC Terrain model equipped with all-wheel drive comes standard with the Traction Select System. This innovative system ensures safety and control on the roads in and around Moose Jaw, while also enhancing the Terrain towing capacity. With the Traction Select System, you can choose from the following driving modes:

  • FWD Mode: Improves fuel consumption during everyday driving by mechanically disconnecting the rear axle, eliminating drag.
  • AWD Mode: Automatically sends engine power to all four wheels, allowing for greater traction on wet, icy, or snowy roads
  • Off-Road Mode: Auto-adjusts the AWD system for better traction and stability when driving on dirt, gravel, or sand.
  • Available Tow/Haul Mode: Includes Trailer Sway Control and improves traction on boat ramps or uneven roads by automatically engaging AWD mode as needed.
