2014 GMC Terrain Overview

Tamara Warren
Automotive Editor - March 26, 2014

The GMC Terrain shares much in common with the Chevrolet Equinox, its corporate cousin. The CUV comes standard with the same 182-horsepower 2.4-liter engine that powers the Equinox, and achieves 32 miles per gallon on the highway in front-wheel drive models; a 301-horsepower V6 is optional for most Terrains, as is all-wheel drive.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 lineup rolls with two new wheel choices, silver sky metallic paint, text message support and Siri Eyes Free.

Choosing Your GMC Terrain

The Terrain is offered in three different trim packages—SLE, SLT and Denali—with various configurations:

Unless the lowest possible price is your highest priority, you should skip past the sparsely-equipped SLE1. Standard features include a rearview camera, tilting steering column, USB and auxiliary inputs, ambient interior lighting, and fog lamps. The SLE1 comes only with the four-cylinder engine.

The SLE2 isn't much more lavish, but does include automatic climate control, a Pioneer sound system, and 19-inch chrome wheels when the optional 3.6-liter V6 is selected. Touchscreen navigation is also available.

The SLT levels cost a bit more, but add the sort of features many buyers want. Standard features on the SLT1 include perforated leather upholstery and heated front seats.

The feature-packed Denali includes leather seats, Denali logos, eight-way power driver and passenger seats, dual flow dampers, a side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic alert system, and a programmable power liftgate. Color touch navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system are optional. The Denali’s looks are improved with a chrome grille, body-color fascias and rocker moldings and satin-chrome accents.

CarsDirect Tip

The lavishly equipped Denali is also lavishly priced. We recommend a front-wheel drive SLT1 or SLT2 with V6 power—a rarity in the compact CUV class.
