GMC Terrain Overview

The Terrain, and its Chevrolet Equinox twin, straddles the small and midsized SUV categories. It has a taut, yet supple and controlled ride, with responsive and secure handling. The raspy 2.4-liter four-cylinder averaged a respectable 21 mpg overall, but acceleration is not brisk; The 3.6-liter V6 is better. But a dithering transmission makes the SUV feel sluggish, and fuel economy averaged just 18 mpg. The interior is well finished and cabin access is easy, but wide roof pillars block the rear view. The rear seat is comfortable and roomy. Changes for 2015 include a standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Reliability has been above average but it scored too low in our tests to be recommended.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
