The GMC Terrain is an upscale model of the Chevy Equinox launched by GMC in the cutthroat compact SUV segment. It allows multiple trim options along with a list of great comfort and active safety features. The brand is looking to re-establish itself as a mainstream contender in the compact SUV segment with its rugged-looking SUV as its name suggests. The off-road-focused AT4 trim has been under rife speculation for quite a time now. 

The onset of the AT4 trim will garner much-needed attention for the Terrain. The current competition is tough to beat, with established stalwarts like the Honda CR-V, the Mazda CX-5, and the Toyota RAV4 ruling the market. Prices for the 2021 Terrain are expected to start from $25,500 and will top out to over $40,000 for the top of the line Denali trim.

The 2021 GMC terrain is coming up this winter but before it reaches your nearest showroom we would like to make you aware of the things. The Terrain is an ambitiously priced vehicle for its average spaciousness, lower refinement, and average ride stability. However, these shortcomings were to be addressed in the next year’s model and some of these have also happened.The 2021 GMC Terrain will roll over the market shelves with pretty much the same aspects in offering as the 2020 model does.

2021 GMC Terrain Features

The 2021 GMC Terrain will start at a reasonable price of $25000 for the base SL trim. A combination of engine options will be standard on all trims. The range-topping Denali trim will end at $39900 with the AWD configuration. The upcoming AT4 will probably include some off-road characteristics like tuned suspension and special tires.

The SLE trim is an upgrade to the SE trim at $28,400 for FWD, charging $600 extra for AWD. Standard upgrades include 18-inch aluminum tires and a driver info display.

The SLT diverts more towards the premium side, with elite creature comforts like heated front seats and leather upholstery.

Denali takes luxury in its own hands, with prime features including Bose sound system, an 8-inch touchscreen, hands-free liftgate, and many more exterior visual cues.

2021 GMC Terrain Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The GMC Terrain suffered from the shortcomings of its previous models and took the criticism positively. So what does the 2021 Terrain have up its sleeve? In 2021, the GMC Terrain rectified most of its issues and built a solid SUV to contend with the rulers of the compact SUV market. The GMC Terrain still has to work its way up into the heart of its customer and incorporate trust with added safety and reliability. 

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The GMC Terrain was the scapegoat of many poor user reviews over the past few years. So where does the 2021 GMC Terrain stand now? Consumer reports gave the 2020 GMC Terrain a predicted reliability rating of 4/5 stars. That means the GMC Terrain got rid of most of its shenanigans. Some parts of it still need some rework, like in-car electronics.

The GMC Terrain got an average customer satisfaction rating of 3/5 stars. So where does the Terrain still fall short? For the average compact SUV, the handling of the Terrain is meager for its class. Consumer Reports argue that the extravagant pricing of the Terrain doesn’t justify most of the underwhelming capabilities of the Terrain. Don’t get me wrong, the Terrain is a decent car, but just not premium enough to lead the segment stalwarts.

5-year Ownership and maintenance table

Let’s talk about ownership costs. In a nutshell, the GMC Terrain lies in the middle of the spectrum. Not too expensive to maintain, not too cheap either. Depreciation costs account for most of the real expenses. Other expenses include taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, repairs, and maintenance. The average cost for repairs comes out around $900 over 5 years. The ownership costs of each trim level vary, and it comes out to an average of above $39000 for 5 years.

*estimated cost of owning a 2020 GMC Terrain SLE trim when driven approx 15,000 miles each year.

With each state, the MSRP of the Terrain varies as per the applied discounts and dealership pricing. Have a look at the table below to get a clear perspective. The GMC Terrain is a reliable car with a stunning design philosophy, which appeals to every SUV lover. Its maintenance cost is much less than that of an average luxury SUV. It has an average repair cost of $744 per year, which is higher than most hatchbacks and crossovers.

Warranty

GMC backs its sturdy SUV with a reliable warranty plan. The basic warranty service extends up to 3 years or 36000 miles coverage for bumper to bumper. The corrosion perforation warranty runs up to a total of 6 years or 100000 miles. GMC makes sure maintenance is never on the bills of new car buyers with a maintenance warranty of 1 year for unlimited distance. Have a look at our warranty analysis to have your say.

Criteria

3 years/ 36,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain warranty

5 years/ 60000 miles; whichever is earlier

24-hour roadside assistance

5 years/ 60000 miles; whichever is earlier

The GMC terrain gives an unbeatable warranty service to savor in the long run. Its power-train and roadside assistance service starts in the long run, while most of its compatriots don’t even offer a 24/7 roadside assistance service of over 3 years.

Miles Per Dollar

Considering the current estimates of the gasoline prices, the GMC Terrain pushes itself to a distance of 8.9 miles per dollar’s worth.

2021 GMC Terrain Buying Advice

We recommend the Denali trim for the top of the line features and high-end technology. Creature comforts include a Bose sound system, a hands-free liftgate, and much more. The rest of the trim levels are good enough, but none match the privileges in-store with the Denali trim. However, there are many value-for-money luxury SUVs at the slash of the cost of a Terrain Denali. So do your research and choose wisely.

Is buying a used car GMC Terrain a good idea?

If you plan to buy a used Terrain, safety is one of the major factors that can influence your decision. First, the GMC Pro package only came to be standard in all the trims of the 2020 Terrain. Most of the features available with this package were only available in the top-tier trims of the previous year models.

However, the 2020 Terrain discontinued the popular diesel engine variant. So, depending on your prerequisites, choose the 2020 Terrain for high-tech safety or an older one for the diesel configuration.

2021 GMC Terrain Engine and Performance

The 2021 GMC Terrain comes in 2 engine options, each with its strength and weaknesses. Both the engines are turbocharged and gasoline-powered, with the only variation being its size- One a 1.5-liter variant and the other a 2.0 liter one. The 1.5 L inline-4 distributes a power of 170 hp and a torque of 203 lb-ft. The more powerful 2.0 L variant chugs out 252 hp and 260 lb-ft torque ideal for an SUV. Don’t underestimate the 1.5 L peer though, this engine is more potent in city roads with better efficiency. However, the big boy 2.0 liter I-4 showcases its ability with its off-road and towing skills. The exclusion of the previous diesel variant is disheartening.

Both the engine siblings hook up with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is predominant in every Terrain trim, but you can also upgrade to a modern all-wheel-drive.

GMC Terrain wins the battle of power with its highest power output of 252 hp and an impressive torque of 260 lb-ft. The Mazda CX-5 although has the highest torque of 310 lb-ft at a lower MSRP, giving it an advantage on highways.

2021 GMC Terrain Acceleration And Braking Performance

The 2021 GMC Terrain has an excellent engine base to propel it to speedy runs with minimum effort. The 9-speed automatic transmission pushes the heavyweight of the SUV effectively and prevents the ride from being too sluggish. The 2020 GMC Terrain clocked in a 0-60 time of 9.3 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 17.2 seconds. The 2021 Terrain won’t differ much either. Braking is a paramount factor for any SUV.

Compared to its rivals, the GMC Terrain appears to be sluggish in speeding up. The Toyota RAV4 is surprisingly the fastest of the pack, all credit to a light vehicle base and better-optimized engine.

2021 GMC Terrain Fuel Economy

The fuel economy of the GMC terrain varies for different trims because of the changing engine base and the drivetrain options. The average MPG figures of all the trims come out to be 21/26/23. To be honest, this is mediocre for the compact SUV class. Equip a 16.6-gallon fuel tank and you get an appreciable mileage of 325.5/405.6/351.9 miles. The 2021 Terrain won’t foresee any groundbreaking revelation regarding its fuel economy either.

The Terrain lags behind its adversaries in the fuel economy department. The duel between the CR-V and RAV4 is cutthroat, with customers confused between the two. The GMC Terrain needs to attract the cash-savvy audience to drive sales on an upward trajectory.

2021 GMC Terrain Interior

The Terrain’s image of a rugged crossover SUV isn’t as it seems. The Terrain imparts luxury in its cabin with an abundance of prime quality interior features. There is some usage of cheap plastics here and there, but that won’t be a problem as the overall interior looks serene with leather upholstery and contrast stitching. The interiors look polished enough, but some awkward button placement derogates its identity.

2021 GMC Terrain SUV Cockpit Area

The seats are comfortable enough with adequate legroom and headroom. Ingress and regress is a child’s task with low seat bolsters and wide-opening doors. The front seats are adjustable to a wide degree and offer support for lengthy drives. We wish the exterior visibility to be better, the deeply angled dashboard proving to be a headache for tall drivers.

How’s the 2021 GMC Terrain’s infotainment system?

Let’s head to everyone’s favorite part-the the entertainment features. The 2021 GMC Terrain is set to be your best pal for long, exciting drives with upscale technology features available right from the base trim. The display is a 7-inch touchscreen display upgradable to 8-inch on higher trim levels. The acclaimed infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. 6 USB ports are available to charge every device of your family on the go, with a perk of a Type-C USB too.

2021 GMC Terrain SUV Infotainment System

The purchasable Bose sound system turns your SUV into a party monster. Navigation is also available, helping you to never feel lost while driving to faraway destinations. Other notable facilities are 4G LTE Hotspot and standard AM/FM stereo.

2021 GMC Terrain Exterior

The GMC Terrain has its basis on the GM D2 platform and shares its underpinnings with Buick Envision and Chevrolet Cruze. For 2021, the GMC Terrain presents a new bold version of itself, shedding all its atrocious boxy characters. We hoped for a more futuristic redesign this year. However, the unprecedented arrival of the coronavirus pushes the redesign beyond the 2022 model. Still, the 2021 Terrain receives extra marks for its floating roof design and its gaping grille. The Terrain sports sleek sheet metal makes the car stand out with its glitzy exterior colors. The selection of black or chrome styling options makes the Terrain an attractive SUV and a top critic’s pick.

2021 GMC Terrain Safety

GMC looks out towards its dedicated customer base by providing the GMC Pro safety package pre-installed on every trim. The GMC Terrain received positive feedback from IIHS and 5-starrating from NHTSA. Some standard safety features include Auto Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Departure Warning. Rear park assist and Adaptive Cruise control also come at additional cost. Overall, the 2021 GMC Terrain is well versed with all the active safety gizmo.

2021 GMC Terrain Competition

2021 GMC Terrain Vs Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V leads the compact SUV market with its incredible versatility and fuel economy. It is much quicker than the slow Terrain and handles sharp corners with ease. The Terrain’s plus points lie in its exquisite interiors and eye dropping style. The Honda CR-V appears to be more bang for the buck than the Terrain and is one of the favorite SUV in its class.

Honda CR-V SUV

2021 GMC Terrain Vs Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 is stiff competition for the Terrain. The RAV4 has a rugged personality to it which competes with the Terrain in the styling department. The RAV4 is one of the quickest SUVs in its class, but the Terrain has a better ride quality with noise cancellation. The interiors of the Terrain should be your sole motive to purchase it, otherwise, opt for the more popular RAV4.

Toyota RAV4 SUV

 

2021 GMC Terrain Final Verdict

The GMC Terrain learned from its past mistakes and constructed a solid base for its future models to improve upon. The 2021 Terrain is a good bet with its opulence and wide array of rich entertainment and safety features. The Terrain has a rugged exterior design, which is spectacular, to say the least. The 2020 Terrain is similar to the upcoming 2021 model in every aspect. You can save your time by buying the 2020 model unless the AT4 trim marks its arrival.

With each year, Automakers are coming with with something new in their lineup to stay in the competition. GMC on the other hand is one exception that has been dedicating most of their time for powertrain. Not to mention, every GMC comes with that something as well. Powertrain of Terrain might not sound peppy but it actually is. Refined engine, no vibration and progressive acceleration is a part of Terrain. However all this doesn't mean it's free of blemishes. Transmission line is not as smooth as other 2020 models(I drove a few before finally giving in for Terrain). All things counted, it still drives far better than others.

Peppy engine is able to put out impressive gas response. Not linear but totally worth the lag. Burns more fuel than expected but thankfully returns with decent power when gunning the engine. More inclined towards highway driving and doesn't go well with those back streets or in traffic.

Peppy engine is able to put out impressive gas response. Not linear but totally worth the lag. Burns more fuel than expected but thankfully returns with decent power when gunning the engine. More inclined towards highway driving and doesn't go well with those back streets or in traffic.

Lights out Toney

Takes me to where ever I want it to drive. Has carried me day one and never gave up on me. I love how it handles on corners by commiting to it. Gives a sense of confidence unknowingly. Safety is also one a priority for it and never ceases to impress me there. Okay, the power needed to be more than what it has in hand but because of the AWD, it can do what I can think of.

Stands alone

Hauls our entire family and comes handy for daily commuting. Easy to drive despite all the bulky size and built and offers the best in class driving quality.
