2024 GMC Terrain Review: Prices, Specs, and Photos

The 2024 Terrain is the smallest SUV in the GMC lineup. Compare it to the related Chevrolet Equinox plus the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. 

The Terrain is a decent choice overall, though it’s hampered by inefficient powertrains and an antiquated all-wheel-drive system. It’s a TK on the TCC scale. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

We expect few tweaks for the Terrain this year after a refresh that bowed for 2022. The Terrain carries over its upright front end, which includes a belt buckle-like grille flanked by clamp-like LED headlights. It’s sleeker from the side, especially as the roofline dives the rear. A de rigeuer “floating” affect is achieved by a blacked-out section of the rearmost roof pillars. 

The inside wears simple but clean lines, with decent control arrangement. Denali versions toss in woodgrain bits and soft leather for an upscale-on-a-budget approach. 

The sole engine available in the Terrain is a 175-hp turbo-4, which comes bolted to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while an inconvenient all-wheel-drive system with a two-wheel-drive mode is optional. Drivers who keep the Terrain in two-wheel-drive mode will need to remember to tap the AWD button when they approach snow or rain. 

Fuel economy is just OK; look for mid-to-upper 20s, per estimates using the EPA’s test. Unlike many rivals, there’s no Terrain hybrid option. 

Better, the Terrain offers up good interior room for four or five passengers and a fairly large 30-cubic-foot cargo area that more than doubles in capacity with the rear seatbacks folded down. The standard 7.0-inch touchscreen can be upgraded to an 8.0-inch display, though all versions have smartphone mirroring and a decent interface. 

Basic automatic emergency braking comes standard. Adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system are among various driver-assistance features on the options list. Overall, crash-test results impress, though the IIHS is less-than-thrilled with the LED headlights. 

How much does the 2024 GMC Terrain cost?

The base Terrain nudges in around $33,000, which is on the high side especially since all-wheel drive adds another $1,600. Upgrading to the Terrain SLT bumps the price around $4,000, but it means trading cloth for leather and the 7.0-inch display for an 8.0-incher. 

Where is the 2024 GMC Terrain made?

In Mexico.
