Compare the 2016 GMC Terrain

Loading Comparison...


The GMC Terrain is considered a compact crossover, but it doesn’t look or feel very compact. And it gets fuel mileage rivaling that of a compact car when equipped with the standard four-cylinder engine. An optional V6 brings brisk acceleration. Its blocky styling has hints of Hummer, and cabin space strives to be Yukon.

Terrain is in the same class as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and the related Chevrolet Equinox.

For 2016, GMC Terrain gets a full update, its first since it was launched as a 2010. Nothing mechanical, just revisions to the exterior (grille, hood, front and rear fascia), interior, and new features such as LED daytime running lights.

The standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with direct injection making 180 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 22/32 mpg City/Highway with front-wheel drive, 1 mpg less with all-wheel drive. But there’s an available 3.6-liter V6 that makes a whopping 301 horsepower, at the price of 5 city and 8 highway mpg, with its 17/24 mpg score. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission. The four-cylinder gets big 18-inch wheels, the V6 gets 19-inch whoppers.

The good news is that you can get the four-cylinder engine even with the upscale Denali model. Not many manufacturers combine their most economical powertrain with their most luxurious trim, but it’s something smart shoppers often want. Some folks don’t see the need for all that power.

Safety ratings are good, with four stars from NHTSA and Top Safety Pick from IIHS. Curtain airbags and rearview camera are standard, on a long list with all the basic quality features, from power driver seat to USB port. Options (or standard on higher trim levels) include leather, wood trim, remote start, automatic climate control, Pioneer sound system, heated front seats, sunroof, IntelliLink infotainment with Bluetooth, headrest-mounted DVD system and a boatload of debatable driver warning systems with enough beepers to distract you. There’s enough available equipment to jack the price of your Terrain to more than $40k, from a base price of barely over $24k.

An Eco mode improves fuel mileage with the press of a button, by turning back the AC and slowing down the transmission and throttle response.




After six years the Terrain finally gets a makeover for 2016, but if you didn’t like its square edges before, you won’t like them now. However if you liked them before, you might like them more now. The Terrain still has a military look, it’s still macho and distinctive, although now it’s more modern.

There aren’t many curves or bends in the sheetmetal, except maybe for the new dome on the hood and the C-shaped highlights at the corners of the front and rear fascia. The overall theme is bold and upright lines. LED running lights in the front bumper on the uptrim models are an improvement to our national landscape, compared to those bright DRLs in the headlamps that we wish would all go away.


The Terrain is a tidy five-seat package with good space inside. Versatility happens when the rear seat slides fore and aft by 8 inches, giving freedom to the front seats and cargo space in back, as well. The seatbacks fold to add space, but they don’t fold all the way, and the cargo floor is high. Maxxed out, the Terrain can carry 64 cubic feet of cargo.

Large vertical vents are the centerpiece of the interior design. It’s fine.

There’s a big deep glovebox, a phone-sized shelf under the climate controls, and a big deep bin under the wide center console armrest that could hold a laptop. The interior design is tasteful and contemporary (especially the Denali), with low-gloss metallic trim. But some of the trim is disappointing, hard hollow plastic. There’s a plastic hood over the touchscreen that doesn’t help the touch much.

Can’t complain about comfort in a Terrain, not even with the standard fabric seats. The cabin is roomy. There’s a lot of head room, knee room and leg room. The bucket seats are wide and very comfortable with mild bolstering, and the rear bench has adequate support. However visibility out the rear is hampered by immovable headrests.

V6 models are silent inside, but four-cylinder versions hear the wind and the gears, the whoosh from the outside and the whirs and ticks in the drivetrain. Actually that ticking sound is coming from the direct fuel injection. The four-cylinder models have a noise-cancellation system embedded in the audio system, also with a few dedicated speakers.

The available IntelliLink connects certain phones to the audio system to get Bluetooth and sources like Pandora. The Terrain uses a 4G LTE data kit that enables your car to create its own private wireless network.

Driving Impressions

The four-cylinder engine doesn’t deliver blazing performance (0-60 in about 9 seconds, which is relatively slow), but it’s got plenty of urge for almost every need. It helps to use Sport mode in the slick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission, when you forage for torque at the low rev ranges. No paddles, you shift with the lever, it’s fun. The transmission is refined but it judders when you accelerate. In automatic mode, it’s smooth and able enough. In Eco mode it labors to save fuel. It can tow 1500 pounds.

With the 3.6-liter V6, the Terrain can tow 3500 pounds, or maybe you fill all five seats a lot, so then the terrific throaty big engine makes sense. Its raps out a muscular burble, and drives the Terrain from zero to 60 in 6.5 seconds, which is quick, about as quick as a BMW X3. But our V6 didn’t shift as slick as the four-cylinder, maybe because it was all-wheel drive.

The Terrain has poise on the road that you might not expect from such a buff vehicle. The four-cylinder uses electric power steering, which saves ounces of fuel, while the V6 uses old-school hydraulic. The four-cylinder has a nice settled feel at speed, and we think its electric power steering is one of the better units; but we tend to like the hydraulic setup a little bit more.

The dual-flow shock absorbers use pressurized oil, designed to stiffen the ride on smooth roads and soften it on bad ones, a neat trick if you can pull it off. The brakes are good.


The GMC Terrain has a roomy interior and plenty of cargo space. The four-cylinder yields excellent fuel economy, while the V6 delivers quick acceleration performance. Front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive adds wintry weather capability.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
