If you are in the market for an SUV but think the third row is excessive, you may be interested in a new GMC Terrain. GMC’s compact crossover SUV has all the bang of a full SUV with a lower price tag. See why you should consider getting a new Terrain in Raleigh, NC!

5 Reasons the New Terrain Should Be Your Next Car

Cost
Although many manufacturers have similar models, the Terrain surpasses the competition in price and miles per gallon. One of its biggest competitors, the Ford Edge, has similar features, but its typical build will run you up an extra $4,000 compared to GMC’s models.

By choosing the Terrain, you could save $100 per month, making this model a more economical choice.

Beside the price, you’ll find that the Terrain comes equipped with a larger gas tank and clocks in higher gas mileage. This will increase the amount of time between trips to the gas station. On average, it will also be cheaper to maintain the Terrain’s performance, as the mechanical quality is better.

Shape and Style
The Terrain’s distinguished shape shows that it is possible to have impeccable style at a lower price. With its sleek design and uniform body, the Terrain exhibits the craftsmanship that GMC vehicles often have.

While the Edge has four models available, the Terrain allows you to find what you’re looking for in their six different models. If you want a power liftgate, you have that option with the Terrain SLT or Denali but will not find the same options among Ford’s models.

Safety
Safety features on both models are similar, including rear vision cameras and stability tracking systems to avoid rolling. But the standard model of the Terrain will also give you an auto-dimming day-night rearview mirror and a passenger sensing airbag system.

With the Terrain, an OnStar Basic Plan is included for five years in all models. The Edge doesn’t include any external safety packages.

Noise
If you don’t like the sound of the wind blowing against the exterior of your car, you’re in luck; the Terrain is the quietest small SUV on the market. With the smooth exterior blended along the body, it decreases wind resistance and allows for a quieter drive.

GMC has also included a noise cancellation system to eliminate additional sound from the interior. The suspension system supplies a comfortable ride that the Edge cannot compare to.

Interior Comfort
While on the topic of comfort, the Terrain is nothing without its spacious cargo area. As a passenger in the Terrain, it is impossible not to notice how well it is crafted to provide spacious and comfortable seats.

Unlike many crossover SUVs, the Terrain is focused not only on power delivery but also caters to a versatile demographic. As long as five seats provide enough room for your family, the safety and comfort of the Terrain are more than adequate for a family car.
