An SUV For Every Adventure: The 2024 GMC Terrain

The 2024 GMC Terrain didn’t change much this year, but that’s okay. Why fix something that isn’t broken? Besides a few new hues added to the body color lineup, the Terrain stays much the same, and that’s pretty much how we like it.

This compact crossover SUV offers families lots of power and performance and hits that sweet spot when it comes to comfort. Added conveniences like advanced technology and premium cabin materials space make the Terrain a favorite for drivers across the country.

Drivers in the market for a compact crossover will find a lot to love about the GMC Terrain this year. Whether going for the basic trim level or looking to upgrade to a high-end trim, you get a lot of value for your money. This is especially true when you opt for the upscale Denali trim—one that GMC is famous for. Why settle for less when you can get more with GMC? The sporty Terrain crossover is a splendid balance of performance and style that defines the GMC name and keeps drivers coming back year after year. Drivers searching for a family-friendly SUV with plenty to offer will get their money’s worth when they go for the 2024 GMC Terrain.

Distinctive Modern Styling

The Terrain is a good-looking SUV that sets itself apart from other vehicles in its class. GMC SUVs like the Terrain are designed to deliver performance and with modern styling that makes them attention grabbers even when parked. In addition to the Terrain’s traditional exterior colors, drivers can now opt for Downpour Metallic—a handsome shade of Navy Blue—to enhance their SUV’s bends and curves. The Terrain’s signature grille is bold, adding to its aggressive, bold styling, while unique C-shaped LED headlamps light the road ahead.

On the inside, the materials are kept simple and durable but are arranged to create a more upmarket feel. Cloth or leather seating can elevate the mood. Opt for French-stitched perforated leather-appointed front seats for a sportier appearance with an edge of sophistication. Aluminum accents add a little shine to your cabin without being flashy.

Interior color pallets are available in a range of carbons, blacks, and tans, so your cabin feels more like a den than an SUV. It’s easy to relax and let natural light highlight the cabin’s clean lines and minimalist colors thanks to wide windows. Drivers can bring in the beauty of nature and some extra light with an available Skyscape Moonroof that gives everyone a great view of clouds, stars, or birds.

Tackle A Rough Patch

The Terrain was designed to tackle all types of road conditions, which makes its name perfect. The standard 1.5L Turbocharged four-cylinder engine brings 175 hp with it, plus 203 lb-ft of torque for exceptional performance that you don’t usually see in small SUVs. Drivers can go for standard front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive for more control.

We love the convenience of the AWD Traction Select System’s convenience, an available feature drivers can get to provide their Terrain with even more performance potential. It’s quick and easy to switch between the front-wheel and all-wheel drive modes to get an optimal amount of control. Drivers can also turn the dial to Off-Road Mode when tackling uneven, slippery, or rocky terrain.

The Terrain helps drivers stay in control when they hit a rough patch. To upgrade your style and performance, drivers with the Denali trim get Denali Premium Suspension with Enhanced Shock Control for a smoother ride and reduced noise. For even more off-road potential, choose the Terrain AT4, complete with front steel skid plates. Hill Descent Control technology lends a helping hand when drivers find themselves dealing with a downhill battle.

Wherever you drive, in town or out of town, on or off-road, the Terrain can be equipped to handle whatever the journey calls for.

Smart Tech For A Fast-Changing World

It can be hard to stay up-to-date with all the advances the tech world is making. That is especially true when it comes to our cars. New technology is constantly being developed and updated so drivers can get the latest and best connectivity, safety packages, and driver-assist technology available. If you’re a driver who expects modern technology at your fingertips, the Terrain delivers.

An intuitive infotainment system with a digital color touchscreen lets drivers seamlessly sync their smartphones using either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Doing so allows users to access favorite playlists or preferred apps. Listen to a podcast on the way to work and enjoy your favorite relaxing tunes on the way home. The user-friendly technology helps the driver stay focused on the road while enjoying a personalized driving experience every time they get behind the wheel.

A digital Head-Up Display is broadcast onto your windshield so you can easily view important information like vehicle speed, fluid levels, or drive mode. Drivers can adjust the display’s brightness, display information, and even image rotation so that it fits their preferences and makes driving feel like second nature.

Upgrades like Alexa built-in help you go hands-free while staying connected. With the help of Alexa, drivers can add items to their Amazon shopping lists, get directions, make calls, and even connect with compatible at-home devices. Got a question? “Hey, Alexa…which exit should I take?” and you’re good to go. Alexa and GMC are with you at every turn.

The GMC Terrain pairs its newest technology with its latest safety suite to make sure you’re covered bumper to bumper. The standard GMC PRO Safety system offers six different safety features that range from Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning to Intellibeam, technology that senses oncoming traffic and light conditions and adjusts your car’s headlamps accordingly so you can focus on the road and not on your lights. For increased safety and driver assist options, drivers can upgrade to the GMC PRO Safety Plus, which includes extra features in addition to those offered in the GMC PRO Safety package. Blind Side Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are just two of the additional safety features drivers can get for increased confidence behind the wheel.

Get Unbeatable Value At Every Turn

The Terrain is a flexible SUV that works for drivers on multiple levels. The five-seater, small SUV is ideal for solo drivers looking for a stylish vehicle that offers top performance or growing families who need safe, reliable transportation. With a strong engine and multiple terrain options, Terrain drivers can stay focused and in control when dealing with heavy traffic, sandy trails, or slippery winter weather.

While many automakers put the focus on either looks or performance, GMC made sure the Terrain does double duty as a stylish and sporty SUV that can take you where you want to go without hesitation. For 2024, drivers can pick from four different trim options to get a Terrain equipped with essentials or loaded with all the luxury features they want to elevate their drive, their way.

The SUV landscape is competitive, but the Terrain stands out from the crowd. It’s great mix of bold design, strong performance, and user-friendly cabin makes the compact SUV a strong choice for those looking for a lot of value for their dollar. Thanks to GMC’s commitment to comfort, safety, and durability, drivers in a Terrain can expect an experience that takes their ordinary ride to extraordinary levels.
