The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 GMC Terrain is a compact crossover with a little more room than some of its rivals, which pays off in big comfort and better hauling capabilities. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a lot more than first appearances might suggest: a true luxury vehicle, a capable off-roader, and a fuel-efficient diesel highway hauler—potentially all in the same build.
