2016 GMC Terrain Buyer's Guide

The GMC Terrain is a compact sport utility vehicle that competes at the more affordable end of the segment. The Terrain is a formidable threat to other small SUVs and crossovers, and the styling updates it receives for the 2016 model year will help it maintain its edge. GMC has given the Terrain a new front end treatment with a restyled front grille, and the option of new LED daytime running lights. The 2016 Terrain offers seating for five passengers and the cabin is loaded with plenty of features. The driver gets options such as a leather-trimmed steering wheel and a voice recognition smartphone interface. Passengers, meanwhile, get a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, satellite radio, and a six- or eight-speaker audio system.

What makes it move?

The 2016 GMC Terrain offers a four-cylinder drivetrain for efficiency and a six-cylinder drivetrain for power. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder makes 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque, and yields EPA mileage of 20 city, 29 highway in all-wheel drive form. The 3.6-liter V-6 provides 301 ponies, 272 lb-ft, and EPA ratings of 16 mpg city and 23 mpg with all-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive is standard and both models come with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Why buy the 2016 GMC Terrain?

As one of the most popular vehicles in the small and affordable compact SUV category, the GMC Terrain clearly has a lot going for it. Though some owners are not particularly impressed with the power of the four-cylinder base model, the Terrain still offers a good value. It’s several years into its lifecycle, which basically means any kinks have been worked out, and the 2016 model year styling updates help the Terrain feel fresh again. The 2016 GMC Terrain is a good option for buyers who are particularly interested in a domestic model, since this part of the market tends to be otherwise dominated by imports from Japan. A solid menu of standard features and available options help the Terrain compete against more expensive small SUVs.
