2017 GMC Terrain vs. Its Competition

2016 GMC Terrain Denali
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The GMC Terrain is among the biggest compact crossover in its class.

It's more muscular than the Chevy Equinox, which it shares a platform with.

The Ford Edge is much newer, and can be a better pick for fuel economy.

The Honda CR-V is the multi-purpose tool of the segment, but won't bowl anyone over with its looks.

The Grand Cherokee is far more rugged and built for off-road duty.

The Nissan Murano's looks are just as polarizing as the Terrain's, and you can get a V-6 there too.
