2021 GMC Terrain Review

  • Comfortable and upscale interior
  • Touchscreen interfaces are intuitive and easy to use
  • Price with options runs higher than average for the class
  • 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is disappointing
  • Less cargo space behind the back seat than in most competitors
  • Optional diesel-powered engine is no longer offered
  • Minor changes to standard and optional feature availability
  • Part of the second Terrain generation introduced for 2018

For 2021, the GMC Terrain carries over with a single but notable change: Its optional diesel-powered engine has been discontinued. While the diesel wasn't a popular option, it did at least help make the Terrain a little more distinctive with its high fuel economy and strong low-end power.

That means the Terrain has just two engine options for 2021: an underwhelming 170-horsepower base four-cylinder or an optional 252-hp four-cylinder. Of the two, we prefer the stronger motor because it provides pleasingly quick acceleration. We also like the Terrain's comfortable and upscale interior, especially in the top-of-the-line Denali trim.

But almost every mainstream automaker offers a small SUV, and many of them are more compelling than the Terrain. In addition to the mechanically related Chevrolet Equinox, the Terrain goes head-to-head with the Honda CR-V (Edmunds' top-rated small SUV), the sporty Mazda CX-5 and the upscale new Nissan Rogue. Read our Expert Rating to get our in-depth take on what the Terrain has to offer.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The GMC Terrain has a comfortable interior and easy-to-use technology features. But a weak base engine, unresponsive transmission and bouncy ride, along with a high price, hinder the Terrain from standing out in the small SUV class.
Unfortunately, the Terrain's base engine lacks power, the transmission is slow-witted, and the powertrain's focus on fuel economy eliminates snappy acceleration. In Edmunds testing it took 9.3 seconds to reach 60 mph, which is very slow.

Elsewhere, this SUV performs better. The brakes bite smoothly and evenly, with a good relationship between pedal pressure and actual stopping power. The steering is slow and a bit mushy, but steering effort weights up nicely at highway speeds, imparting more confidence and a sense of stability. Capable and balanced on twisty roads, the Terrain keeps body roll in check. It's not sporty, but the Terrain remains stable and composed through turns at reasonably high speeds.
On the road, the Terrain is prone to regular low-impact shock, vibration and jostling on even moderately rough surfaces like bumpy streets. Road and tire noise is limited to a muted, dull hum on most road surfaces. The front seats are firm but comfortable and they hold up well over long road trips; the rear seats are relatively firm and flat. 

There's a simple control layout other than the four buttons for vent mode, which is excessive, and the central vertical vents distribute air poorly. The seats offer cushion-only or cushion-and-seatback heating, which is a nice feature.
The Terrain's interior is attractive and well configured, but some controls are awkwardly placed and impossible to avoid. Least impressive is the Terrain's unnecessarily clumsy transmission interface.

The low seat bolsters and wide-opening doors should make getting in and out easy for most drivers and passengers. There's also plenty of seat adjustment up front, although taller drivers might wish for more steering wheel extension. Visibility is below average thanks to a deep, angled dash that makes it hard to know where the front really is. The front side windows provide a good view out; less so the rear side windows.
The Terrain's optional Bose sound system offers surprising power and clarity, and the optional navigation system is easy to use. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard and beat GMC's native software for ease of use, but the standard system works fine for those outside the Apple/Android ecosystem. Our test Terrain has six USB ports, including one USB-C.

The Terrain offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot standard. Setup is easy, but coverage isn't much better than with a typical mobile phone. Operation of the safety systems, such as forward collision warning and lane keeping assist, is still a bit intrusive, but not overbearing.
With the rear seats folded, the Terrain's 63 cubic feet of cargo space lags behind class benchmarks (Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4). But a fold-flat front passenger seat is a nice touch that allows you to haul longer items (surfers and campers, rejoice). A power liftgate and low liftover height make cargo loading easy, too. There are plenty of bins, trays and pockets available to hold personal items.

For child safety seats, the car seat anchors are easy to find and connect to, and there's plenty of space for forward-facing seats. Rear-facing seats fit well as long as drivers and passengers can keep their seats reasonably forward. The Terrain doesn't provide a top tether for a middle seat, but there is one in the rear seatback.
The Terrain with the 1.5-liter engine and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in combined city/highway driving. That's a bit below what other top small SUVs get. We got 28.4 mpg on our mixed-driving test route, but just 22.4 mpg in 600 miles of combined driving. These results suggest that a light touch is needed to achieve the EPA's numbers.
We're not convinced the Terrain offers enough value to justify its price. It feels solid and it's not outrageously expensive, but lower-priced competitors such as the CR-V offer similar or better features and versatility, plus better ride quality and comfort.

The Terrain has three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage and five-year/60,000-mile powertrain coverage, which is typical for this class. However, its first two scheduled maintenance visits are free, and roadside assistance and loaner cars are included for five years or 60,000 miles. Those are more generous terms than the competition offers.
The Terrain is a mixed bag. It's handsome at a glance, and the sleek style, sharp (and quiet) interior and modern tech make it desirable. But it rides and drives worse than a car in this class should, especially at this price. It's not oozing with personality, nor is it particularly fun to drive, so the Terrain remains a midpack choice.

Which Terrain does Edmunds recommend?

The base SL trim comes with a decent amount of equipment, but we suggest stepping up to the midlevel SLT trim. It comes with more standard features and opens up the options list. Specifically, we recommend getting the SLT's optional turbocharged 2.0-liter engine for its extra power.

GMC Terrain models

The 2021 GMC Terrain is a small SUV available in four trim levels: SL, SLE, SLT and Denali (late availability). Feature highlights for these trims include:

SL
The base-level SL comes standard with:

  • 170-hp turbocharged engine
  • Nine-speed automatic transmission
  • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • Six-speaker audio system
  • Keyless entry and push-button start

All Terrains also come with:

  • Automatic emergency braking (warns if a front impact is imminent and applies the brakes if you don't respond in time)
  • Forward collision alert (alerts you of a possible collision with the car in front)
  • Lane keeping assist (steers the Terrain back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)

SLE
This trim is similar to the SL, but it unlocks these packages:

  • Driver Convenience package
    • Dual-zone automatic climate control
    • Remote start
    • Power-adjustable driver's seat
    • Heated front seats
    • Roof rails
  • Infotainment Package I
    • Additional USB ports
    • Household-style power outlet on the center console
    • HD rearview camera
  • GMC Pro Safety Plus
    • Blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle is in your blind spot during a lane change or while reversing)
    • Rear parking sensors
    • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)

SLT
The SLT trim adds even more features, including:

  • All Infotainment Package I features
  • All Driver Convenience package features
  • Hands-free liftgate
  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display
  • Driver-seat memory settings
  • Power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • Heated steering wheel

Other options include:

  • 252-hp turbocharged engine
  • Sunroof
  • Infotainment Package II
    • Navigation
    • A seven-speaker Bose audio system

Official information on the Terrain Denali was not available as of our review's publication. But we expect it will have unique styling cues and interior trim as well as most of the optional features from the above trim levels as standard.

5/5 stars, Love my Terrain
Mproctor,
SLE 4dr SUV AWD (1.5L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
I was pleasantly surprised how peppy this small SUV is. I love all the safety features and the fact that I don’t have to pay so much for gas since it takes regular 87 octane. I took it on a long trip this weekend and it performed great.
4/5 stars, 2021 GMV Terrain SLT
Stgcret,
SLT 4dr SUV (1.5L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
I bought my Terrain in November 2020. The 1.5L Turbo is "okay" but the 2.0L Turbo is so much better. The vehicle is a very well thought out vehicle. Back seat flip flat at the push of a button and easily clicks back in to place. Seats are at hip height, which at 69, makes them very easy to slide in and out. The front bucket seats are fairly comfortable with many power adjustments. The front seats could use another 1/2" to 1" of width. I would buy this beauty again.
5/5 stars, The best I love my car
Pansetta,

GMC Terrain vs. the competition

2020 Honda CR-V

2020 Honda CR-V

GMC Terrain vs. Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is Edmunds' top-rated small SUV. It has a spacious cabin and plenty of storage. Its standard turbocharged engine is stronger than the Terrain's base engine, but Honda doesn't offer an engine upgrade like GMC does. We do like the Terrain's easier-to-use infotainment system, but overall the CR-V is a more well-rounded SUV.

Compare GMC Terrain & Honda CR-V features 

GMC Terrain vs. Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is the sportiest vehicle in its class, meaning it's far less likely to bore you than other small crossover SUVs. The interior has a clean-looking design and upscale materials. That said, it doesn't have quite as much passenger or cargo space as the competition.

Compare GMC Terrain & Mazda CX-5 features 

GMC Terrain vs. Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester has a lot going for it. As with nearly every Subaru, all-wheel drive is standard, as is an extensive list of driver aids. It's also more capable off-road than the Terrain. The Forester's engine is a little weak, however.

2021 GMC Terrain First Impressions

What is the Terrain?

The 2021 GMC Terrain is a compact SUV with two rows of seating. For 2021, the Terrain will add an AT4 off-road trim level, giving it some ruggedly styled cosmetic extras. Unfortunately, the new 2021 Terrain AT4 won't receive any real off-road enhancements to accompany the styling update. Other GMCs including the Sierra, Sierra HD and Canyon all get some sort of upgrade to suspension hardware in the AT4 package, but with the Terrain it's all looks.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The GMC Terrain competes in one of the most hotly contested vehicle segments out there: compact SUVs. It goes up against refined and spacious class-leading rivals such as the Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4 and the Mazda CX-5. It has two rows of seating, which means it seats up to five passengers, but it offers significantly less legroom and cargo space compared to class leaders. The Terrain is available with two engine choices: a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The 1.5-liter engine is the more efficient choice, but it's a bit underpowered for the vehicle's size, so we'd go with the 2.0-liter engine.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 GMC Terrain?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
