Q: What's new on the 2017 GMC Terrain?

A: As the last model year in the first generation, the 2017 GMC Terrain doesn't have a lot of changes from the previous model year, but it did receive a new appearance package to sharpen things up. The Nightfall edition includes 18-inch machine-faced aluminum wheels, a charcoal grille, black luggage rails and gloss black spokes, grille surround, and rear license plate surround, plus front and rear fascia accents. 

Q: Does the 2017 GMC Terrain have third-row seating?

A: As a crossover SUV, the 2017 GMC Terrain doesn't have the same amount of room available as larger, non-crossover SUVs. This means that, as with many crossovers, it simply doesn't have the room available to add a third-row seat. The lack of this feature limits seating to five comfortable seats between the two front bucket seats and the rear 60/40 split-fold bench seat. 

Q: Is there a CD player in the 2017 GMC Terrain?

A: The 2017 has a comprehensive audio profile, but it does not include a factory CD player.

You'll also have an easy-to-use, intuitive touchscreen interface to swap between audio sources, navigation and other apps in your vehicle. 

Q: How does the 2017 GMC Terrain compare to the Ford Explorer?

A: Compared to the 2017 Ford Explorer, the 2017 GMC Terrain has fewer available seats, but those seats are premium cloth upholstery, providing an uptick in interior finish value. The Terrain also offers an anti-theft system standard whereas the Explorer does not.  

Q: What features are important in the 2017 GMC Terrain?

A: Among the features that buyers find the most important when considering the 2017 GMC Terrain include the 182 hp, 2.4L inline-four engine that comes standard or an available 301 hp, 3.6L V6 engine, standard 18-inch wheels with 19-inch wheels available, Bluetooth connectivity, equipped with OnStar 4G LTE connectivity including an available Wi-Fi hot spot, remote keyless entry, USB port, available driver assistance system, cruise control, available remote start and a backup camera. 3,4

Generation Overview

As the last model year in the first generation, the 2017 GMC Terrain finished up a very successful first run for the new model. Introduced in 2009 at the New York International Auto Show, the 2010 GMC Terrain was presented as a replacement for the Torrent, once GMC shut down its Pontiac branch. In 2013, the model included an upgraded trim level, the Denali, which included more chrome, a more upscale interior finish, a larger 3.6L V6 engine and firmer front struts to improve ride comfort. In 2016, the Terrain received a mid-generation facelift, including a new grille, new front and rear fascias, LED daytime running lights, new wheels, a power dome hood and a second storage shelf under the dash.

Great car with low mileage

This car had low mileage when I bought it (7,000 miles)! Still had the bumper to bumper. Love how it rides but wish I could adjust the seats more. Especially the passenger seat.


  • Fuel Economy: Great gas mileage!
  • Reliability: Has not disappointed me!
  • Cabin Noise: Quiet ride! Love satellite radio!


  • Ride and Handling: Rides a bit hard.
  • Seat Comfort: There’s no way to lower seat so it doesn’t cut into the back of your legs.
  • Dashboard: Wish it was easier to utilize GPS thru car speaker
