The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 GMC Terrain may wear a tough skin, but shows a softer side with excellent four-cylinder gas mileage and Denali luxury. The 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee blurs the SUV-crossover line expertly; better transmissions are at the top of the wish list.
