As the base trim, the GMC Terrain SL might come with less equipment, but it still offers plenty of practical features. For example, the turbo 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 170 horsepower and 203 lb.-ft. of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission helps maximize performance, including efficiency.

Hill descent control helps ensure that you successfully navigate rugged terrain. Optional all-wheel drive does as well.

Among the many conveniences is deep-tinted rear glass, automatic HID headlights, heated/power-adjustable side mirrors, interior humidity sensor, cruise control, rearview camera, keyless start, 7-inch infotainment screen, Bluetooth, and 4G LTE WiFi. You also enjoy the reassurance of the Teen Driver settings, which encourages younger drivers to behave responsibly and provides reports on vehicle use.


A few additions come with the SLE trim, many of them providing conveniences and comforts. For example, a configurable 4.2-inch color driver info screen supplies important messages where you normally look. A digital compass helps you know which direction you’re driving at any time.

The SUV also gains an auto-dimming rearview mirror, so you’re not blinded by other vehicles at night.

SLE Diesel

As the name suggests, the GMC Terrain SLE Diesel comes with the same equipment as the SLE, plus a diesel engine. The turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder provides a healthy 240 lb.-ft. of torque and 137 horsepower. It works with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

A few extra pieces of equipment do come on the SUV, like roof side rails, powered liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, auxiliary cabin

heater, remote start, front seat heaters, and power-adjustable driver’s seat.


With the SLT trim, the GMC Terrain uses the turbo 1.5-liter engine. It doesn’t have the powered liftgate or auxiliary cabin heater that’s included on the SLE Diesel.

Among the additional perks are fog lights, auto-dimming side mirrors with integrated turn signals, one 110-volt power outlet, 8-inch infotainment screen, satellite radio, USB ports, SD card slot, and perforated leather upholstery.

SLT Diesel

Of course, the SLT Diesel trim features the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine and auxiliary cabin heater. It also gains a hands-free and programmable power liftgate, which is great for loading items when your arms are full. Power adjustments for the front passenger seat, including lumbar control, plus a heated steering wheel come standard.


As the top trim, the GMC Terrain Denali really piles on the features. For starters, it uses a turbo 2.0-liter engine with 252 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Enjoy improved visibility with LED headlights. Navigation, HD radio, and a 7-speaker Bose sound system make trips more enjoyable. Rear cross traffic alert and rear park assist help you watch for hidden dangers, making this trim that much more tempting.
