2015 GMC Terrain vs. Its Competition

2015 GMC Terrain
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The GMC Terrain may not look the part, but it's mechanically identical to a more feminine and more affordable Chevrolet Equinox, though you'll have to buy a well-equipped one to get the Terrain's upgraded suspension.

If you're looking for another rugged vehicle, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is slightly larger and slightly more expensive, but can go just about anywhere if you choose it with four-wheel drive.

The Ford Edge offers a more conventional crossover platform and an efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

However, MyFordTouch is more confusing than GMC IntelliLink.

The Honda CR-V is well-built and spacious, but handling and available features are only average.

The Nissan Murano may also draw your attention with its V-6 power and all-new concept-car styling.
