When it comes to mixing comfort, interior space, road agility, and off-road capability, nothing beats an SUV. The 2020 GMC Terrain is the perfect example, with its large and comfortable interior, excellent ride quality, and competent all-terrain capability.


The 2020 GMC Terrain's standard engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that can produce up to 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. While this power and torque output should be enough to satisfy most drivers' needs, but those who feel they need a little more can opt for the second engine option, a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with up to 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are helped by a smooth 9-speed automatic transmission and come with standard front-wheel drive that can be upgraded to all-wheel drive.
The 2020 GMC Terrain's interior is not only comfortable but also very well insulated, with most of the road, wind, and engine noises being successfully kept out of the cabin, even at highway speeds. The seats are soft and have wide-opening doors, meaning that all passengers, irrespective of their size, can easily enter and exit the GMC Terrain and have a comfortable trip. Quality materials were used throughout the interior, enhancing the overall comfort levels even more.
From a tech standpoint, the 2020 GMC Terrain has everything you'd expect from a modern SUV, with all the main functions being easily controlled via the 7-inch touch screen interface that can be upgraded to an 8-inch one. Smartphone connectivity is also easily achievable, through Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, or one of the six USB ports present throughout the cabin.
The 2020 GMC Terrain is available in four trim levels: SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali. On the exterior, they all look modern and elegant, with even the base SL trim coming in nine possible colors and featuring enhancements such as power remote heated manual folding side-view door mirrors, a chromed grille in the front, body-colored door handles, and much more, along with many tech and driver safety features. Higher trims add little in terms of exterior design but greatly improve the GMC Terrain with many useful features.

Although the 2020 GMC Terrain's powertrain is more oriented towards efficiency than raw performance, it still manages to reach a speed of 60 miles per hour from a complete standstill in a respectable 9.3 seconds. However, the real performance indicators for an SUV are mainly interior space and comfort, with the GMC Terrain having 63 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, which can be extended to 81 cubic feet by folding the passenger front seat.

The excellent active and passive safety features make the 2020 GMC Terrain a very safe vehicle. Driver aids like the rear cross-traffic assist, side blind zone alert, and safety alert seat all help the driver identify any potential danger in due time. In case an unfortunate incident does occur, the GMC Terrain is built to protect everyone inside, as certified by the top ratings received by The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
