GMC Terrain Overview

The Terrain and its Chevrolet Equinox twin straddle the small- and midsized-SUV categories. The Terrain has a taut yet supple and controlled ride, with responsive and secure handling. Both the 3.6-liter V6 and the more fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine feel sluggish and have to work hard. The reluctant transmission blunts the performance of the V6, yet its gas mileage is mediocre. Interior components look snazzy but feel cheap. Visibility to the side and rear is limited. At least the rear seat is roomy. High-trim models bring beneficial forward-collision and lane-departure warning safety systems but lack common features such as a dual-zone climate system. Reliability has been above average, but the Terrain scores too low to be recommended.
