The Critics' GMC Terrain Reviews

View Reviews for years 2010 2011 2012
66 / 100
Compared with the similar Chevrolet Equinox, Terrain offers unique styling, additional standard equipment, and available cloth seating that is notably upmarket of its sibling.
70 / 100
Despite its strongly SUV-styled body, the construction, power plant, and cabin tech of the 2010 GMC Terrain are thoroughly modern, equal to or surpassing much of the competition.
Wayne Cunningham Cnet Reviews
83 / 100
The 2012 GMC Terrain has a high base price, but buyers get a stand-out exterior, a standard rearview camera and plenty of passenger space.
86 / 100
The GMC Terrain gives crossover SUV buyers refinement, high-tech standard features and great fuel economy. However with so many standards, the Terrain has a high starting price for the class.
60 / 100
The 2011 GMC Terrain is a compact crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) that is beautifully designed and has elegant styling but a bit too much weight on its frame.
60 / 100
The GMC Terrain is a chunky, boxy bruiser in the crossover market. With its squared-off styling--even the fender flares are at right angles--it resembles few of its competitors, and its bold, chrome-ringed grille sets off a large GMC badge to ensure that it won't get lost in a crowd.
78 / 100
If you're looking for five-passenger CUV that gets great gas mileage yet has the rugged look and feel of a mid-size GMC truck, the Terrain deserves a long test drive.
Kelley Blue Book
76 / 100
If you're thinking you'd like a reasonably sized crossover SUV that gets great gas mileage, has room for five but also has a bit of an attitude, the 2012 GMC Terrain compact SUV deserves a spot on your shopping list.
Kelley Blue Book
76 / 100
Despite similarities to the Chevy Equinox, the 2010 GMC Terrain stands on its own as a boldly styled, efficient, and high-featured small/mid-size crossover.

80 / 100
The 2011 GMC Terrain looks bold and edgy on the outside, but it’s a softy inside, with a comfortable, refined cabin and excellent fuel economy.
Bengt Halvorson
80 / 100
Excellent fuel economy and a comfortable cabin are a big contrast to the 2012 GMC Terrain's boxy shape.
