Buying a new car can be an exciting process, but it can also be confusing because of the number of makes and models to choose from. GMC offers a range of high-quality, well-built, and efficient vehicles, including the new Terrain and the Acadia.

While these two models may appear to be similar, there are differences that may affect your buying decision.

New Terrain vs. Acadia: A Brief Size Comparison

While these two stylish and versatile vehicles may look similar, there are definitely differences in size and features. Let’s take a look:

  • The new Terrain and the Acadia are both in the SUV/Crossover category, but the former is a full-size and the latter is a mid-size.
  • Seating also differs between the two vehicles. The new Terrain comfortably seats seven people, while the Acadia seats five (but can seat up to seven).

These two points are important buying considerations, especially for those with a family. The new Terrain is the bigger vehicle, but the Acadia packs just as many features into its smaller frame.

Other Considerations to Keep in Mind

Both of these GMC SUVs offer style and beauty on the outside, while the inside delivers the comfort and convenience you’ve come to expect from GMC vehicles. Both contain technology to make travel – and life – easier, including multiple charging ports, Bluetooth® connectivity, a large in-dash touchscreen, and the option for 4G LTE Wi-Fi connections.

The new Terrain and the Acadia also come with a number of standard safety options to give you and your family peace of mind, such as the Rearview Camera and Forward Crash Alert.There are optional conveniences as well, such as Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert.
