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

By:

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.

The 2018 GMC Terrain ranked #5 in Compact SUVs. Currently the GMC Terrain has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good gas mileage, especially from the turbodiesel
Smooth ride
Upscale interior
Two rows of spacious seats

Cons
Poor visibility
Higher starting price than most competitors

By:

The 2018 GMC Acadia ranked #15 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the GMC Acadia has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 23 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Smooth ride
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Cramped third row
Less cargo space than some rivals

By: 
usnews.com

A V-6 engine is optional and provides decent hustle, while the standard four-cylinder engine is the choice for buyers mindful of fuel economy.Handsome styling, a well-connected infotainment system, and room for up to seven passengers make the Acadia an easy family favorite.

Pros
Seating for seven,
handsome styling,
a high-tech cabin.

Cons
Uneven interior build quality,
disappointing fuel economy,
a tight third row and cargo hold.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 3.6-liter V6 is now available on SLE-1 AWD models. Last year's All Terrain package deleted the third-row seat, but it can now be ordered with the third row intact.

PROS
Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any kind of driving situation
Quick acceleration from the optional V6 engine
Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

CONS
Not many places to store small items
Some rival crossovers have more cargo and third-row space
Cabin isn't particularly luxurious, even in the priciest trim levels
