GMC Terrain: Cruise Control - Cruise Control - Driving and Operating - GMC Terrain Owner's ManualGMC Terrain: Cruise Control

With cruise control, the vehicle can maintain a speed of about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more without keeping your foot on the accelerator. Cruise control does not work at speeds below 40 km/h (25 mph).

If the brakes are applied, the cruise control is disengaged.

If the vehicle has the StabiliTrak® system and begins to limit wheel spin while using cruise control, the cruise control automatically disengages. See StabiliTrak® System on page 9‑36 or Traction Control System (TCS) on page 9‑35. When road conditions allow you to safely use it again, the cruise control can be turned back on.

WARNING

Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot drive safely at a steady speed. So, do not use the cruise control on winding roads or in heavy traffic. Cruise control can be dangerous on slippery roads. On such roads, fast changes in tire traction can cause excessive wheel slip, and you could lose control. Do not use cruise control on slippery roads.

Resuming a Set Speed

If the cruise control is set at a desired speed and then the brakes are applied, the cruise control is disengaged without erasing the set speed from memory.

Once the vehicle reaches about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more, move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ briefly. The vehicle returns to the previous set speed and stays there.

Increasing Speed While Using Cruise Control

If the cruise control system is already activated

○ Move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ and hold it until the vehicle accelerates to the desired speed, and then release it.

○ To increase the speed in small amounts, move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ briefly and then release it. Each time this is done, the vehicle goes about 1.6 km/h (1 mph) faster.

Reducing Speed While Using Cruise Control

If the cruise control system is already activated,

○ Move the thumbwheel toward SET/− and hold until the desired lower speed is reached, then release it.

○ To slow down in small amounts, move the thumbwheel toward SET/− briefly. Each time this is done, the vehicle goes about 1.6 km/h (1 mph) slower.

Passing Another Vehicle While Using Cruise Control

Use the accelerator pedal to increase the vehicle speed. When you take your foot off the pedal, the vehicle will slow down to the previous set cruise speed.

Using Cruise Control on Hills

How well the cruise control works on hills depends upon the vehicle speed, load, and the steepness of the hills. When going up steep hills, you might have to step on the accelerator pedal to maintain the vehicle speed. When going downhill, you might have to brake or shift to a lower gear to maintain the vehicle's speed. When the brakes are applied the cruise control is disengaged.

Ending Cruise Control

There are three ways to end cruise control:

○ To disengage cruise control; step lightly on the brake pedal or clutch, the indicator light will go off.

○ Press * CANCEL.

○ To turn off the cruise control, press ON/OFF 5 CRUISE. The cruise control cannot be resumed.

Erasing Speed Memory

The cruise control set speed is erased from memory if ON/OFF 5 CRUISE is pressed or if the vehicle is turned off.
