The 2015 GMC Terrain is an update to this popular five-passenger crossover, which has been a hit with buyers. As small SUVs go, it’s particularly blocky and angular, with shiny metal accents designed to make the Terrain look as upscale as some of GMC’s full size luxury SUV models. A 2015 Terrain can be had for about $38,000, but they can get expensive quickly. Chris Wardlaw, Autobytel’s Road Test Editor, tested a top-of-the-line Denali model with GMC’s V6 drivetrain, all-wheel-drive, 19-inch wheels, navigation, and an extensive entertainment system that keeps even backseat passengers occupied. These upgrades add up, resulting in a Terrain that rang up at $42,500 as tested. In the hot crossover SUV category, the 2015 Terrain faces some tough competition, including several well-known and popular models that are considerably lower priced. However, the Terrain Denali’s 3.6-liter V6, which produces 301 horsepower, was designed to power much bigger vehicles like the GMC Acadia. This level of power helps justify the added cost, although the Terrain Denali gets EPA ratings of just 19 MPG in combined driving. Plenty of comfort elements, convenience features and thoughtful details help make the 2015 GMC Terrain Denali a competitive five-passenger crossover option despite its flaws.
