About GMC Terrain
The 2014 GMC Terrain is a well-equipped compact crossover SUV with a comfortable interior. With the base four-cylinder engine, acceleration and real-world fuel economy are underwhelming, so the optional V6 is a sensible upgrade if it’s within your budget.
The 2014 GMC Terrain is a little larger-than-compact crossover that is based on the Chevrolet Equinox’s design. It comfortably seats five persons and provides a reasonably high level of luxury for this market. The GMC’s interior comforts set it apart from competitors, with high-quality surfaces, flowing lines throughout the dashboard, and a comprehensive standard equipment list that includes a 7-inch touchscreen and a rearview camera across the board.
The 2014 Terrain’s availability of a V6 engine distinguishes it from many of its competitors in this price bracket, though you’ll frequently encounter the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that comes standard on all trim levels. It has good EPA fuel efficiency figures, but in practice, we’ve been disappointed with both its performance and its mpg. If your budget permits it, the optional 3.6-liter V6 engine gives much better acceleration and a more comfortable driving experience, particularly on the interstate. Both engines are available with front- or all-wheel drive, allowing you to personalize the Terrain to your unique needs and preferences. The GMC receives good grades for ride comfort regardless of how it is outfitted, and extensive sound-deadening measures result in a very tranquil cabin.
As impressive as the 2014 GMC Terrain is, it is up against a slew of capable rivals. The well respected Honda CR-V has a cheaper starting price than the Terrain and offers several more cubic feet of load room despite its smaller external dimensions. The 2014 Ford Escape has an equally high-end interior and a sportier feel around corners, while the 2014 Kia Sorento has a touch more interior space and its own available V6, as well as an optional third-row seat.
If you shop around, one of the above options may prove to be more attractive in the long run. However, the 2014 GMC Terrain is well worth a look, especially if you want one with a truly upmarket interior and a V6 engine.
The exterior style of the 2016 GMC Terrain has been revised, with a power dome hood design, a chrome-accented grille in higher trim levels, LED daytime running lights, and new 18- and 19-inch wheel designs. Light Titanium/Jet Black two-tone leather is now available in the Denali trim, and Saddle Up leather is now available in the SLT grade. Inside, the improvements include a redesigned center stack and instrument cluster with a storage shelf and revised graphics, as well as a chrome-trimmed transmission shifter. Eight-way electrically adjustable seats are now available on SLT versions.
