Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The other four trims, in order of increasing base price, are the SLE-1, SLE-2, SLT-1 and SLT-2. All trims are fitted with a four-wheel independent suspension while the Denali’s is treated to a few upgrades. Both the front and rear seating is given ample room for passenger comfort and the rear can easily be folded to maximize cargo space. Standard equipment includes common options like a rearview camera and Bluetooth capability. A new option on the 2013 model, GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system is able to integrate with smartphone applications. Having a low base price coupled with luxurious options helps the Terrain in attracting a wide array of car-buyers. Also helping spread the Terrain’s net-of-appeal is the in-between size, providing the room of a midsize without the feel of one.

Facing stiff competition, the Terrain has advantages in its’ upscale interior cabin that is big on technology and space, although, it still falls short in performance despite the improved V6. Leading in the fun-to-drive aspect, the Ford Escape also has good fuel-mileage on two- and four-wheel drive models. Yet the technology features on the Ford can be tricky and frustrating. The all-new Toyota RAV4 is no longer available with a V6 yet has more cargo space than even the roomy Terrain. For customers seeking value, the similar Chevrolet Equinox is offered at a lower price with the same new V6 as the Terrain, though there is less standard equipment as well.

Finally available with an adequate V6, the 2013 GMC Terrain has the right engine to go along with its’ high-tech interior.
