Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 GMC Terrain is an upscale twin to the Chevy Equinox and looks the part.Much like the last generation, the new Terrain takes a more aggressive approach to the shared GM architecture. The boxy body is bookended by a larger grille and a more sculpted rear end. The Terrain’s shape borrows much from the bigger Acadia, and is part of GMC’s newer design theme for its crossovers.

Pros
Tough-and-tumble look
Top-trim Denali version
Fuel-efficient diesel version
Advanced 9-speed automatic

Cons
So long sliding second row
What will fuel efficiency be?
Can get expensive

Quiet and comfortable, the Terrain is exactly what we’d expect from the Professional Grade brand; enjoyable driving dynamics are an added surprise. Three turbocharged inline-fours are offered; the 170-hp 1.5-liter and 252-hp 2.0-liter are paired with a nine-speed automatic, while the 137-hp diesel 1.6-liter gets a six-speed unit.

Pros
Stupefying fuel economy,
well-packaged cabin.

Cons
Interior materials are “meh” incarnate,
relaxed acceleration,
high price.

By: 
caranddriver.com
