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 designated adult of the compact crossover class, the Terrain is bigger than most competitors and focuses on quiet cruising rather than snaking through curves. Add the available V6 engine and posh trim, and you have a credible alternative to luxury vehicles costing thousands more.

What's New for 2015

The Terrain gets a built-in WiFi hotspot, but is otherwise unchanged.

Choosing Your GMC Terrain

The Terrain offers a relaxing five-passenger interior with a rear seat that slides and reclines. Ride quality is a definite strong suit, as is the hushed cabin environment. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is good for 182 horsepower. The optional 3.6-liter V6 provides a massive boost to 301 horsepower and allows the Terrain to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive can be added to any model.

The Terrain is offered in five trim levels that cover a broad swath of the compact crossover market:

GMC Terrain


Comes with plenty of desirable features, including a rearview camera, heated side mirrors, Bluetooth phone, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a touchscreen sound system with six speakers and satellite radio. Note that the SLE-1 comes only with the four-cylinder engine; the V6 is available on all other trims.

GMC Terrain


Adds conveniences such as a power driver seat, automatic climate control, roof rails and Bluetooth audio. The passenger environment receives upgraded cloth upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. You also get an eight-speaker Pioneer sound system with voice controls. The available Safety package tacks on lane departure warning, forward collision alert and rear parking sensors. Heated front seats and remote engine start come with the Convenience package. The Chrome Edition includes the Convenience features, plus additional chrome exterior trim, 18- or 19-inch chrome wheels and a cargo mat. A sunroof is available as a standalone option.

GMC Terrain


Gets driver memory functions and all of the SLT-1 options as standard, except the navigation system, which can be added separately. A rear DVD entertainment system with dual screens is also available.

GMC Terrain


Tops off the Terrain with upgraded leather seating, a power passenger seat, wood interior trim, unique wheels, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The navigation system and DVD entertainment setup remain optional.

CarsDirect Tip

We recommend using the popularly equipped SLE-2 trim level as your starting point. It's only about $1,500 more than the entry-level SLE-1 and gives you access to a slew of options. While the Denali is expensive for this class, it's highly sought-after, so you might find it well worth price.
