2020 GMC Terrain

2020 Terrain Photos
The smallest crossover in the GMC range is the compact Terrain. A cousin of the Chevrolet Equinox, the 2020 Terrain seats five in comfort and provides plenty of standard and optional equipment. It is a solid value in a competitive class, though Denali models are pricey.

For 2020, the Terrain holds steady. Another paint choice is now on the option sheet, and there are more standard active-safety features. The optional turbodiesel has been dropped due to lack of demand.

With the turbodiesel gone, buyers must choose between one of two gas engines. The base engine is a 1.5-liter turbo-4 with 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, while the upgrade engine is a 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines pair with a 9-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available.

With the 2.0-liter engine, maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds.

A number of active-safety features have been made standard for 2020, including parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. Adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system remain optional on the high-trim models.

Crashworthiness has been a strong suit of the Terrain. The NHTSA has awarded it a five-star overall rating, while the IIHS deemed it 'Good'? in all categories save the headlights.

Fuel economy is also a strength of the Terrain, and considering the efficiency of the two turbo-4s it isn't surprising that GMC dropped the turbodiesel from the lineup. With front-drive and the 1.5-liter engine, buyers can expect 26 mpg city, 30 highway, 27 combined. Adding all-wheel drive drops those figures slightly to 25/28/26 mpg. The 2.0-liter engine manages only 21/26/23 mpg with all-wheel drive.
