  • Performance

    While the 2021 GMC Terrain may not be the most capable off-road machine on the market, it is more than up to the task of handling bad weather and dirt roads. With this SUV’s tall ride height and available all-wheel drive, it can confidently tackle challenging road conditions and get you and your passengers safely to your destination. The best part about the performance of the 2021 model is that everything you need comes standard, and the only choice you need to make is between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

    Standard Performance Components

    Every trim of the 2021 Terrain boasts a standard turbocharged engine, striking the optimal balance between power and efficiency. This engine uses advanced features such as direct injection, variable valve timing, and a dual overhead cam design to pump out over 200 pound-feet of torque without making you pay more at the pump. The Terrain can even be used to tow light trailers weighing up to 1,500 pounds if you need a little more cargo space than the ample rear cargo area can provide.

    Admirable Efficiency

    While the GMC Terrain is a solid performer, the real benefits of the turbocharged engine reveal themselves at the gas pump. Coupled with the standard 9-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, this powertrain has a very attractive estimated fuel economy of 27 MPG combined (25 MPG city/30 MPG highway). That means you can travel over 400 miles on a single tank of gas, spending less time and money refueling. If you opt for the available all-wheel drive system, rated fuel economy drops very slightly to 26 MPG combined (25 MPG city/28 MPG highway). So while front-wheel drive is a bit more efficient, choosing all-wheel drive won’t drive up your fuel bill.

  • Interior

    Cargo and Passenger Space

    Let’s talk about space for a moment. As a compact SUV, this premium model can seat five people comfortably. For a smaller SUV, the interior dimensions are quite generous. In fact, the Terrain offers 40 inches of front headroom and 41 inches of front legroom. For backseat passengers, there are 38.5 inches of headroom and 39.7 inches of legroom. That makes this compact model a surprisingly roomy vehicle for families. Even adults can ride comfortably in the back seats, and smaller children will have no problem stretching out during long car trips.

    The 2021 Terrain also has a surprising amount of storage space. With 29.6 cubic feet of room behind the back row, there’s plenty of space for backpacks, luggage, and groceries. You can even fold the back row down to expand the area to 63.3 cubic feet. If that still isn’t enough, you can simply fold down the front passenger seat, and you’ll have a whopping 81 cubic feet of storage space. That’s cavernous for a vehicle that is classified as compact, and the 60/40 split rear seats let you divide it up however you like.

    SL and SLE Trims

    Features in the cabin will change based on the trim level. However, even the starting trims have plenty of comfort features standard. The base SL, for instance, includes keyless ignition and entry, making this model remarkably well-equipped. Displayed on a standard 7-inch touchscreen is the voice-activated GMC infotainment interface. This system works with Bluetooth for hands-free calling and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless audio and app integration. You can listen to music through the standard 6-speaker stereo and enjoy the 4G LTE WiFi hotspot that keeps you connected everywhere you go at no extra cost.

    The SLE trim shares most of its standard features with the SL trim but opens lots of options for add-on packages. The Driver Convenience package adds remote start technology, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support for the ultimate comfort. Another package is called Infotainment I. This suite adds a larger 8-inch touchscreen with built-in navigation, an HD rearview camera, and two additional USB ports. But those are only two of the options the SLE has available.

    SLT and Denali Trims

    The mid-level SLT is where luxury starts to come into play. Leather upholstery gives the cabin a more elegant appearance, and the heated steering wheel is the perfect comfort for the colder winter months. This trim also comes standard with many of the options available on the SLE trim, including the larger 8-inch touchscreen and additional USB ports. Of course, you can also go even further with the optional Bose premium sound system, HD radio, and more.

    Finally, the premium Denali model is the trim featuring the best of what the 2021 Terrain has to offer. This top-of-the-line model is loaded with everything, including ventilated seats and a 360-degree surround-view camera system. If you are looking for a truly premium experience in your compact SUV, then the Terrain Denali is the vehicle you have been seeking.

    Exquisite Style

    The exterior of the 2021 GMC Terrain exudes a premium air, with sleek modern lines and chrome accents. The Denali trim, in particular, stands out, with its 19-inch bright alloy wheels and unique Denali-line mesh grille. No matter which trim you choose, you will enjoy the heightened style, from the signature C-shaped LED daylight running lights to the matching LED taillights. With eight color choices to choose from, including the eye-catching Red Quartz and Blue Emerald options, this compact SUV will look good no matter where your travels take you.

    Standard Safety Features

    As for safety, GMC is well-known for its advanced systems that come standard no matter what trim you choose. Safety shouldn’t be a luxury after all. That’s why GMC has made a point to ensure that every new model is loaded with the latest and most innovative safety gear - and of course, that includes the 2021 GMC Terrain. Offering more driver-assist technology than ever before, standard safety features now include:

    • Automatic Emergency Braking
    • Following Distance Indicator
    • Forward Collision Alert
    • Front Pedestrian Braking
    • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
    • IntelliBeam

    All of these systems work together to help prevent accidents, from the parking lot to the highway. The higher trims of the 2021 Terrain come with even more driver-assist features, including technologies like Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Automatic Parking Assist. When you drive the Terrain, you know that you and your passengers are well-protected wherever you go.

    Teen Driver

    Another nifty feature that makes the GMC Terrain stand out is the standard Teen Driver function. If you have a new driver in the family, you want them to drive safely, but you can’t be with them all the time. That’s why GMC came up with the Teen Driver system. This unique operation will encourage good driving and allow you to customize vehicle settings to make sure your child is being responsible. It will even send an audible alert if the driver goes over the preset speed limit. To see how well your young driver is doing, you can access a driving report card at any time. This can help you to understand where your teen is excelling and what still needs some additional training.
