2024 GMC Terrain

The GMC Terrain is a 5-passenger compact crossover that has been part of the GMC model lineup since 2009. This third generation of the Terrain also had a styling update for 2022. This smallest vehicle in the GMC model line comes in four grades and is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD), with the latter being standard on the AT4 and Denali grades.

Changes for 2024 include GMC Pro Safety Plus now being standard on the AT4 grade. 2024 also sees the addition of a new premium color: Riptide Metallic and Downpour Metallic.


All 2024 Terrain models are powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4, which produces 175 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. The engine features a dual overhead cam and includes direct fuel injection for improved combustion and variable valve timing to widen the torque band. Keeping the engine in its most effective rpm range is a 9-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission, which features a smooth transition between gear changes. FWD is standard on the SLE and SLT grades. AWD is available on the SLE and SLT and standard on the off-road focused AT4 and luxury-flagship Denali models for extra control on low-traction surfaces.

The Terrain rides on a 4-wheel independent suspension with MacPherson struts, coil springs, a stabilizer bar in the front, and a four-link design with coil springs and a stabilizer bar in the rear. Augmenting the suspension is the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control. All models also feature Hill Descent Control, which uses the antilock braking system to help maintain a smooth, controlled descent down a steep and possibly unpaved incline.


All GMC models come standard with wireless compatibility for both AppleCarPlay® and Android AutoTM, allowing you to use your phone’s music, navigation, and other relevant mobile apps on the 7-inch touch screen without ever removing your phone from your pocket or purse. Every model can also be a Wi-Fi hotspot through the OnStar system. A Bose® 7-speaker audio system is available on all models but the base SLE and is standard on the Denali. Also standard on the Denali is a head-up display and wireless smartphone charging. In the front are both type-A and type-C USB data power ports with two charging USB ports for rear passengers.

Comfort & Utility

The Terrain SLE comes standard with a premium cloth seating surface. All other Terrain grades have seating surfaces of perforated leather. Available on the SLE is a heated 8-way power driver seat with power lumbar control, which is standard on all above grades, as is a heated 6-way power front passenger seat.

Behind the 2nd-row seat is 29.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The 60/40 rear seatbacks fold flat with the car floor, providing 63.3 cubic feet of space. However, that does not take into account a trick unique to the Terrain in this category, which is that the front passenger seat will also fold flat on a plane with the cargo floor and folded 2nd-row seat backs, which both expands the available cargo space and allows for the loading of items up to 8 feet long. When it comes to hauling things outside the Terrain, it has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.

Safety and Driver Assistance

For 2024, all models come standard with the GMC Pro Safety suite of safety and driver assistance features. Included in the system are:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Following Distance Indicator
  • IntelliBeam
  • Standard on the AT4 and Denali is GMC Pro Safety Plus, which adds the following:
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-Change Alert
  • Blind-Spot Warning
  • Rear Parking Assistance

All Terrain models are also equipped with the Teen Driver feature, which, when a Teen Driver key fob is detected, will activate certain safety features, including one that deactivates the audio system until both front seat occupants fasten their seatbelts. While all Terrain modes include a rear vision camera, a high-definition rear vision camera is standard on the SLT and above models. The SLT and above are also equipped with Front and Rear Park Assist, which provides alerts of nearby vehicles and objects. This is separate from Automatic Parking Assist. This Denali feature can automatically steer into a detected parallel or perpendicular parking space, leaving you to simply brake and shift between forward and reverse.
