The GMC Terrain, along with the larger Acadia, was among the company’s first forays into the crossover market. While many of GMC’s SUVs share platforms and powertrains with pickups, the Terrain is a front-wheel-drive crossover with unibody construction and optional all-wheel drive. It shares its platform with the Chevrolet Equinox, offering excellent fuel economy and a ton of space for passengers and cargo, particularly compared to other small crossovers like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
Additionally, like most other GMCs, the Terrain is available in a top-spec Denali trim level, which brings extensive leather, woodgrain trim, and more standard features than almost any other vehicle in its class. Also, the Terrain can be ordered with a powerful 3.6L V-6, which can’t be said of most other compact crossovers.
However, although it’s largely based on a carlike chassis, the Terrain suffers from some unfortunate handling, such as excessive body roll and poor straight-ahead stability. And the steering feels inaccurate.
But a large, spacious interior is well appointed—even in base models—and the Terrain’s rear seat slides forward and backward to allow drivers to prioritize rear-seat space or cargo capacity. The optional, 301hp V-6 provides surprising verve with reasonable fuel economy. However, the I-4’s segment-best fuel economy number is the one to beat if you’re looking to save money.
