The Compact SUV That Could—And Does!

You could say the 2020 GMC Terrain is a compact SUV with a big engine and an unwavering eagerness to get the job done. The Terrain holds it own. With an MSRP of $33,330 for the base model, the front-wheel-drive SLE, you get lots of safety features and rear-seat legroom, a comfortable, quiet cabin, and a good EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 26 city/30 highway mpg with this 9-speed automatic transmission, and 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Rivertown Buick GMC offers additional savings on their vehicles that you will be pleased with.

Ready For The Long Haul

With 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 ft-lb of torque at 2,000-4,000 rpm, this compact SUV is ready for the long haul to wherever you are going. And to help you get there, you have an onboard hands-free communication system and wireless cell phone hookup. You and your passengers will enjoy the ride with an AM/FM stereo radio, MP3 player, smart device integration, auxiliary audio input, and Wi-Fi Hotspot.

When properly equipped, the 2020 GMC Terrain SLE, considered a small crossover SUV, can tow up to 1,500 pounds, perfect for towing a small trailer or pop-up tent trailer. When you upgrade to the stronger 2.0L turbocharged engine with 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, your towing capacity increases to 3,500 pounds, perfect for towing a small boat or an ATV.

It Pays To Compare

When compared to similar SUVs, like the Honda CR-V, you see slight differences in comfort, seating, and handling. The 2020 GMC Terrain, for example, does just as well as the 2020 Honda CR-V in hauling, but outshines the competition in towing capacity with its turbocharged engine delivering more horsepower and higher torque than the CR-V.

When stacked up against the Mazda CX-5 in towing capacity, the CX-5 has a slight edge, but the GMC Terrain is equipped with more horsepower, out-muscling the Mazda.

When up against the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the Terrain’s drivetrain has higher torque and more horsepower, allowing the Terrain to better pull heavier loads more efficiently. Where the RAV4 Hybrid really scores is in making fewer stops at the gas station.

It Also Pays To Play It Safe

One of the least talked about but most important safety features when touring or towing is brake assist, standard on the 2020 GMC Terrain. Being able to stop more quickly when you are facing an emergency situation under any road or weather condition can save lives. By measuring the speed and force of applying the brakes in an emergency stop, the system applies additional pressure to the antilock braking system, thus preventing your wheels from locking up.

The Terrain is truly safety-conscious, and provides driver, front head, and front side airbags, with passenger and rear head airbags as well.

Not to be overlooked, daytime running lights allow other drivers to see you in any type of weather. Standard in the GMC Terrain is lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, traction, and electronic stability control, too.
