After GM dropped Pontiac in 2010, a gap was created in their crossover SUV segment. With the Pontiac’s Torrent out of the picture, GM introduced their Terrain to occupy the vacancy. Initially based on the same platform as GM’s Theta and Chevrolet’s Equinox, the GMC Terrain is now built on a Delta platform. Currently, the Terrain is the smallest vehicle GMC has to offer.

That, however, doesn’t stop this crossover SUV from living large. Presently in its second generation, introduced at the 2017 North American International Auto Show as a 2018 model, the GMC Terrain offers two engine choices, front-wheel and all-wheel drivetrains, a 9-speed automatic transmission and a 7-inch or an 8-inch GMC infotainment unit across the range.

Prices for the second generation GMC Terrain starts at $26,195, which slots this crossover SUV somewhere in the middle of the more expensive Buick Envision and the cheaper Chevrolet Equinox. With a wide variety of standard features and an affordable price, the GMC Terrain is a promising offering from GMC, and its continuously rising sales figures are a testament to what the Terrain has achieved.


  • Comfortable and upscale interior
  • The Optional 2.0-liter engine is efficient and powerful
  • Touchscreen interfaces are intuitive and easy to use


  • Price with options runs higher than average for the class
  • Disappointing base engine
  • Less cargo space behind the back seat than most competitors
