GMC Terrain: Driver Information Center (DIC) (Base and Midlevel) / Info Pages

The following is the list of all possible DIC info page displays. Some may not be available for your particular vehicle. Some items may not be turned on by default but can be turned on through the Options app. See “Info Page Options” earlier in this section.

Speed : Shows the vehicle speed in either kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph).

Trip A or Trip B : Shows the current distance traveled, in either kilometers (km) or miles (mi), since the trip odometer was last reset.

This also shows the approximate average liters per 100 kilometers (L/100 km) or miles per gallon (mpg). This number is calculated based on the number of L/100 km (mpg) recorded since the last time this menu item was reset. This number reflects only the approximate average fuel economy that the vehicle has right now, and will change as driving conditions change.

Press and hold GMC Terrain. Info Pages while this display is active to reset the trip odometer and the average fuel economy. Trip A and Trip B can also be reset by pressing GMC Terrain. Info Pages and choosing reset.

Fuel Information or Fuel Range : Shows the approximate distance the vehicle can be driven without refueling. LOW will be displayed when the vehicle is low on fuel. The fuel range estimate is based on an average of the vehicle's fuel economy over recent driving history and the amount of fuel remaining in the fuel tank.

Oil Life : Shows an estimate of the oil's remaining useful life. If REMAINING OIL LIFE 99% is displayed, that means 99% of the current oil life remains.

When the remaining oil life is low, the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will appear on the display. The oil should be changed as soon as possible. See Engine Oil 0 294.

Average Speed : Displays the average vehicle speed of the vehicle in kilometers per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph). This average is based on the various vehicle speeds recorded since the last reset. Press and hold GMC Terrain. Info Pages while this display is active to reset the average speed. Average speed can also be reset by pressing GMC Terrain. Info Pages and choosing reset.

Fuel Economy : The center displays the approximate instantaneous fuel economy as a number and bar graph.

Economy Trend : Shows history of the Average Fuel Economy from the last 50 km (30 mi). Each bar represents about 5 km (3 mi) of driving. During driving the bars will shift to always reflect the most recent distance on the right side. Press and hold GMC Terrain. Info Pages to clear the graph or press GMC Terrain. Info Pages to reset through the menu.

Coolant Temperature : Displays the coolant temperature in degrees Celsius (°C) or degrees Fahrenheit (°F).

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Level (Diesel Engine Only) : If equipped, the DEF level will be displayed as either OK, XX%, or LOW. When LOW appears on the display, add DEF as soon as possible. See Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

Oil Pressure : Oil pressure is displayed in either kilopascal (kPa) or in pounds per square inch (psi). Oil pressure can vary with engine speed, outside temperature, and oil viscosity. On some models, the oil pump will vary engine oil pressure according to engine needs. Oil pressure may change quickly as the engine speed or load varies. This is normal. If the oil pressure warning light or Driver Information Center (DIC) message indicates oil pressure outside the normal operating range, check the vehicle's oil as soon as possible.
