Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Behind the wheel, the Terrain feels somewhat small, but yields a calm, composed ride – even through imperfect road surfaces. Because GMC tuned the luxury-level suspension for a composed ride, even the Denali’s bigger tires don’t impair comfort.

Like most crossover SUVs, the Terrain is short on steering feedback, but it behaves with tranquility and tracks well on straightaways. On washed-out, rutted roads, the vehicle’s small-car ancestry becomes more evident.

All three powertrains have strong points, but the diesel isn’t quiet and lacks low-speed refinement. Torque output from the base 1.5-liter engine arrives at low speeds, which helps in urban driving.

As expected, the 2.0-liter turbo-four provides much stronger, more impressive pull. While capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, it quaffs premium-grade gasoline when doing so.

With either gasoline engine, the smooth 9-speed automatic is a welcome companion. Unlike some 9-speeds, it’s well-behaved in urban driving and willing to downshift readily when extra oomph is needed.

All-wheel drive is a mechanically simple part-time system, but it isn’t automatic: It requires a turn of a console-mounted selector knob.

The fuel-efficiency champ is the turbodiesel Terrain, EPA-rated at 28/38 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined, with all-wheel drive. Front-drive raises the estimate to 28/39/32 mpg.

The standard 1.5-liter engine with all-wheel drive is EPA-rated at 24/28 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. Front-wheel drive manages 26/30/28 mpg.

With all-wheel drive, the 2.0-liter turbo-four is EPA-rated at 21/26 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. Front-drive is estimated at 22/28/24 mpg.

Walk Around

Handsome on the outside, the current Terrain exhibits a smooth, sleeker shape than the angular previous-generation model. Compared to the closely-related Chevrolet Equinox, GMC’s Terrain has a more distinctive appearance. A sculpted tail helps scale down the overall look.

Up front, the squared-off grille sits above a panel that dentists might liken to an underbite. Blacked-out rear pillars support a crossover-trendy “floating” roof. Denali models flaunt abundant chrome.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Slightly smaller than the first-generation Terrain, the current version comfortably seats four adults. Upper-notch Terrains are fitted with heavily-bolstered, power front seats. They slide and recline, but fail to provide abundant support for riders with especially long legs.

Rear-seat passengers get nearly as much legroom as the rider up front. Hip space is substantial, too. However, flat-bottomed rear cushions make it likely that passengers will race for that tempting front seat. An available panoramic sunroof cuts into usable head space.

Each Terrain features more wood trim and posh appointments than its Chevrolet cousin. Like the less-costly Equinox, GMC’s Terrain retains hard plastic elements in doors. GMC installs sound-deadening materials and active noise cancellation.

Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility supplements the basic infotainment layout. Both feature large icons and easy-to-read menus.

Cargo volume totals 29.6 cubic feet with rear seatbacks upright, growing to 63.3 cubic feet when seatbacks are down.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Every 2019 GMC Terrain is nicely equipped, but all lack the active-safety features rivals have made free. The Denali edition reaches luxury heights, but a less-expensive SLT promises greater value. The turbodiesel is more frugal with fuel, but at its premium price, it’s not as compelling a choice as a mid-level Terrain powered by gas.

SLE Diesel ($31,800 with FWD, $33,600 with AWD) substitutes the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine, with 6-speed automatic, plus heated front seats, a power passenger seat, and power liftgate.

SLT ($30,900 with FWD, $32,600 with AWD) gets the 1.5-liter gas engine and such luxury features as leather-appointed seating, dual-zone automatic climate control, 18-inch wheels, 8.0-inch touchscreen, and heated front seats.

SLT Diesel ($33,700 with FWD, $35,500 with AWD) substitutes the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine.
