If you’re looking for a compact SUV that is sleek and functional look no further than the GMC Terrain. The base trim level of the Terrain comes with a 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine, and does 26 mpg in the city, and 30 mpg on the highway. The Terrain has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, which is perfect for bass fishing boats and small trailers and campers. The Terrain is very practical, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have luxury features. The interior is made up of premium soft-touch materials and authentic aluminum, which makes every trip feel like a first-class experience. In the interior you’ll also find a sunroof that extends to the second row so everyone can enjoy views of the sky, adding that extra bit of comfort and luxury. Beyond comfort though, the Terrain boasts excellent cargo capacity, offering space for objects up to 8-feet long, and coming equipped with a front-to-back load floor.
The Terrain has four different trim levels, which all come standard in FWD with the option of AWD for all except the SL. The four different trim levels include:
- SL (MSRP $26,195) – The SL may be the entry level of the Terrain, but that doesn’t mean it’s missing out on features. The SL comes standard with a 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine, 9-speed automatic transmission, and 4-link rear suspension. The interior is well furnished and includes a 7-inch diagonal infotainment system. The SL also includes many safety features, such as forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and automatic emergency braking.
- SLE (MSRP $29,595) – The SLE comes with all the features that the SL comes with and more. Some of the added features include a 4.2 inch diagonal multi-color driver information screen and an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror. If you purchase the SLE you will have more package options, such as the driver convenience package, which includes remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver and front passenger heated seats, driver 8-way power seat, driver power lumbar control, and roof-mounted luggage rack side rails.
- SLT (MSRP $32,395) – The SLT also has all the features of the previous two. With the SLT though you have the option of getting a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. The previous two models have 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, 11.8″ front and 11.3″ rear rotor size, and so does the SLT, but with this trim level there is the option to get 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, 12.6″ front and 11.3″ rear rotor size instead. The SLT also comes with an 8-inch diagonal infotainment system.
- Denali (MSRP $39,495) – The Denali comes standard with the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. The Denali doesn’t just come default with a beefier engine, though. The interior comes with more features, so the Denali feels even more luxurious than the other trim levels. There is ambient interior lighting, Bose premium 7-speaker audio system, a 6-way power front passenger seat, 8-way power front driver seat, a heated steering wheel, and more.
