New 2014 GMC Terrain Review


The 2014 GMC Terrain is a somewhat bigger than-smaller hybrid that imparts its outline to the Chevrolet Equinox. It situates five individuals in solace and offers a generally large amount of extravagance for this portion. With great surfaces, streaming lines over the dashboard and an extensive standard gear rundown that incorporates a 7-inch touchscreen and a rearview Polaroid no matter how you look at it, the GMC's inside housing set it separated from contenders. 

The accessibility of a V6 motor likewise separates the 2014 Terrain from a significant number of its opponents in this value range, despite the fact that you'll commonly experience the 2.4-liter four-barrel motor that is standard on all trim levels. It has strong EPA efficiency evaluations, yet in this present reality we've been disappointed by both its execution and its mpg. On the off chance that your plan permits, the discretionary 3.6-liter V6 gives much stronger increasing speed and a more agreeable driving background, particularly on the parkway. Both motors are accessible with either front- or all-wheel drive, so you can tailor the Terrain to suit your particular needs and tastes. Nonetheless you prepare it, the GMC gets high checks for ride solace, and broad sound-stifling measures bring about a strikingly tranquil lodge. 

On a par with the 2014 GMC Terrain is, it confronts an extensive variety of able rivalry. The exceedingly respected Honda CR-V has an easier base cost than the Terrain, and it gives a few extra cubic feet of payload space despite the fact that its outer surface extents are more modest. The 2014 Ford Escape has a similarly high-end inner part and a sportier look about turns, while the 2014 Kia Sorento offers a bit more inside room and an accessible V6 of its own, alongside a nonobligatory third-column seat. 

On the off chance that you search around, one of the above decisions could end up being more alluring generally speaking. Yet the 2014 GMC Terrain is most likely worth a look, especially in case you're intrigued by unified with a positively upscale inner part and a V6 motor choice. 

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options 

The 2014 GMC Terrain Review is accessible in SLE, SLT and Denali trim levels. The SLE and SLT trims are further subdivided into two levels: SLE-1 and -2 and SLT-1 and -2. 

Standard supplies for the base SLE-1 trim incorporates 17-inch combination wheels, warmed sideview mirrors, auto-darkening rearview mirror, a rearview Polaroid, journey control, a force tallness customizable driver situate, a sliding and leaning back secondary lounge, tilt-and-extendable guiding wheel with voyage and sound controls, Onstar, Bluetooth telephone connectivity and a six-speaker sound framework with a 7-inch touchscreen interface that incorporates satellite radio, an assistant sound jack and an ipod/usb interface. 

The SLE-2 trim adds to the SLE-1 by including top rails, programmed atmosphere control, an eight-way control driver seat with force lumbar alteration, a cowhide wrapped controlling wheel, overhauled fabric upholstery, an updated eight-speaker Pioneer sound framework and GM's Intellilink client interface that permits voice order for some telephone and sound capacities. Discretionary on the SLE-2 is the Safety bundle, which incorporates path flight cautioning and forward-impact alarm frameworks, alongside back stopping sensors, while the Convenience bundle includes warmed front seats and remote motor begin. Likewise accessible for the SLE-2 is the Chrome bundle that incorporates chrome outer surface trim, 18-inch chrome-completion wheels and an all-climate back load mat. A sunroof is a stand-alone alternative. 

The more characteristic laden SLT-1 accompanies all the SLE-2's standard gear and the Convenience bundle substance and calfskin upholstery. The Safety bundle and sunroof remain discretionary, and you can likewise settle on a tallness flexible force liftgate. 

The SLT-2 accompanies the greater part of the above supplies as standard (aside from the freight mat) and likewise incorporates driver-seat memory capacities. 

The Denali trim fuses everything that is standard for the SLT-2, however includes Denali-particular wheels (18-inch wheels on four-barrel renditions and 19s in the event that you get the V6), back cross-movement and side unseeing zone alarm frameworks, an eight-way control traveler seat and extraordinary exterior/interior trim points of interest. 

A route framework is nonobligatory for all GMC Terrains, with the exception of the SLE-1. A double screen DVD back stimulation framework is accessible for the SLT-2 and Denali. 

Powertrains and Performance 

The standard motor for each 2014 GMC Terrain is a 2.4-liter four-barrel that handles 182 torque and 172 pound-feet of torque. Discretionary for any Terrain with the exception of the SLE-1 is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces a powerful 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. Both motors are supported by a six-velocity programmed transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is nonobligatory, paying little mind to motor decision or trim level. 

The four-barrel, front-wheel-drive Terrain gives back an EPA-assessed 22 mpg city/32 mpg roadway and 26 mpg joined together. With all-wheel drive, those numbers drop to 20/29/23. The 3.6-liter V6 front-wheel-drive models are appraised at 17/24/20, and all-wheel drive remains at 16/23/19. 

In Edmunds testing, a front-wheel-drive four-barrel Terrain went from zero to 60 mph in 9.4 seconds, a normal time for the class. A V6-prepared, all-wheel-drive Denali variant sprinted from zero to 60 in 7.0 seconds, an amazing time around little and fair size hybrids with a six-barrel or updated turbocharged motor. 

With the four-barrel motor, an appropriately prepared Terrain can tow 1,500 pounds; the V6 increments towing ability to 3,500 pounds. 


The 2014 GMC Terrain is fitted with standard automated stopping devices, solidness and footing control, front-seat side-sway airbags, side shade airbags and a rearview Polaroid. Likewise standard is GM's Onstar crisis correspondences framework, which incorporates programmed accident notice, a crisis help catch, remote entryway open and stolen vehicle support. 

A path takeoff cautioning framework, forward crash cautioning framework and back stopping sensors are nonobligatory on the SLE-2 and SLT-1 trim levels and standard on SLT-2 and Denali. Blind side observing and cross-activity alarm frameworks are selective to the Terrain Denali. 

The Terrain brakes surely. In Edmunds testing, a four-barrel Terrain reached a prevent from 60 mph in 121 feet, a couple of feet shorter than normal. The altogether heavier V6 AWD Terrain Denali halted in 123 feet. 

In government accident tests, the Terrain earned a general score of four stars out of five, with four stars for general frontal-sway insurance and five stars for side-sway security. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Terrain the best possible rating of "Extraordinary" in its coordinate spread frontal-equalization, reaction and top quality tests.

Interior Design and Special Features 

GMC may at present be discerned as a "truck" brand, yet the 2014 Terrain's pleasantly designated inside is anything other than tough to the eye or the touch. The dashboard is styled in two effortless bends and the gages and optional controls are highlighted by delicate blue backdrop illumination, while mitigating encompassing light makes for a sincerely welcoming evening the earth. 

The standard 7-inch color touchscreen showcase gives a cutting edge feel to even the base model Terrain, yet the Intellilink interface (standard beginning on the SLE-2 model) is a beneficial improvement, as it uses Bluetooth streaming sound to empower combination of cell phone applications, for example, Pandora and Stitcher. The on-screen menus are generally sorted out, yet the framework's infrequent moderate or missed reactions to touch inputs might be disappointing. 

Especially recognizable is the consideration regarding sound-stifling in the Terrain. An acoustic windshield and other clamor executing measures - including an animated commotion scratch-off framework for four-chamber models - work ponders in quieting tire and wind commotion, actually throughout high velocity cruising. The front basin seats are agreeable, and the standard sliding back seat permits you to upgrade back seat legroom or load space, contingent upon your needs. 

That said, actually recognizing the Terrain's just about average size foot shaped impression, its not so much effective with its inside space. With the rearward sitting arrangements caved in, the Terrain's 63.7 cubic feet of most amazing cargo farthest point is detectably short of what that of the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Rav4. With the rearward sitting arrangements pass on explorers, the Terrain offers 31.6 cubic feet of burden space. 


In spite of the fact that the four-chamber GMC Terrain matches the increasing speed times of other minimal hybrids in this value range, it doesn't get a handle on as powerful in this present reality. You'll have the gas pedal amazed throughout standard blending and passing moves, and this isn't exceptionally unwinding. Throughout a year-long test of a four-chamber Terrain, our watched mileage likewise came in well beneath the EPA consolidated rating. In our perspective, the fuel-effectiveness focal point of the four-chamber motor is more diminutive than the EPA appraisals propose. 

In the interim, the 2014 GMC Terrain Review 's accessible V6 is out and out great. It gives solid execution in any circumstance and conveys its energy in a smooth way that supplements the Terrain's high-end outline. 

Ride quality is astounding on every one of the 2014 Terrains. GMC's smaller hybrid floats over way flaws and brags a quieted lodge at interstate cruising paces. The Terrain Denali gets unique back stuns to further pad the ride. Don't want lively taking care of, however, as solace is the Terrain's essential mission. Moreover, the controlling is outstandingly light and not particularly exact, actually for a hybrid SUV. - New 2014 GMC Terrain Review
