2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I personally have not had an issues with my vehicle. It is very reliable has very good mileage takes about 20 to 25 dollars to fill up gas tank. It sits 5 people comfortably has a added storage compartment in the trunk area. A/C blows perfectly in the area of the driver, also keep everyone in the back nice and cool as well as the car has air vents directed to the back seat. Has a 6 inch display screen in which you can connect your phone via Bluetooth or USB to use android auto or apple play to use your car as your phone. Has navigation, OnStar equipped. Only real dislike I have is the auto stop function it has when you stop the car goes idle once you release the brake or after a few seconds or a minute the car comes back on.

The 2018 GMC Terrain; The Right Car For You!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I love my 2018 GMC Terrain. I have AWD and it really helped me out this past winter with the bad snow storms. Features that I love: easy to navigate computer system to control not only entertainment but also the system specs. The rear seat easily folds down to allow for maximum storage. Some things I don't like: It came with the 'auto-stop' feature (the car automatically turns off when you come to a complete stop) that I am not a fan of. In some other vehicles (and even the 2019 Terrain) you have the ability to turn this off, but not in the 2018 model. I would've also preferred different colored stitching/panels on the interior but I could've been pickier when shopping as well. All in all a great, reliable car!

Halfway Through Leasing my GMC Terrain

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I am one year into my 2-year lease of my 2018 GMC Terrain, and I have loved everything about this vehicle! The sleek and modern design initially captured my attention, but then the dependability and power of the vehicle kept my attention. It truly stood out among the other cars on the lot. My 2018 version comes without some of the extra bells and whistles, but even at the most basic level, this vehicle is very reliable and drives incredibly well. I have not had any problems with my Terrain - even in the snowy Midwestern winters. I would recommend leasing or buying this vehicle to anyone who is looking for a new SUV.

- Samantha J

The new GMC terrain is totally worth every cent!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

The only issue I have come across is that sometimes the touch screen freezes and stays until the car is turned off. For performance, it runs great! The option to switch into 4 wheel drive is great for snow/ice. I can get about 1 week of commuting to and from work on gas. I love the heated seats and how it turns down automatically. The rearview camera works great, and works well with the seat vibrating if something is in your rear when trying to backup. The buttons for gear shift was a big change, however it really frees up the center console!

- Lynn E

Love my steel blue Terrain

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

It is a very convenient vehicle. It has built in Wi-Fi internet which is great for kids. Even though it is a smaller SUV it's still quite roomy. I comfortably seat my 3 children in it without an issue. The back up camera is amazing also. I've had this vehicle for over a year and have not had any major problems with it. My kids love it. I can still squeeze our giant dog in the back too! The GMC app makes a this vehicle even more awesome. I can start it from anywhere to get it warmed up before driving in cold weather.

- Tina T

Great ride - great gas mileage - buy a terrain.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

My vehicle is a pleasure to drive - very comfortable seats and comfortable ride. It has the rear view camera which makes backing up easy, it has plenty of room for carrying things and also plenty of legroom in back seat area, it has keyless entry and auto start from house which is great in cold weather to have your car warmed up and defrosted before you get in, my vehicle is a 4 cylinder turbo and is great on gas. I have only good things to say about this vehicle.

- Susan S

Terrain - Not Too Shabby!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

It's a nice little car. I should have gotten leather but it's okay.It's nice for a family of 4 with small children. Decent trunk size. Good on gas. I love the apple screen feature so I can see my music and navigation. I HATE the feature where the car shuts off and restarts itself. Hate it. It's annoying and I don't understand the purpose. I like this car. I don't love it. But it's a decent car with a lot of modern features.

- Laura R

Posh SUV with the ability to haul quite a bit. Beautiful handling and luxury.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I have had this vehicle for almost two years and have never had any problems. I live in the snow belt and it handles very well. The moon roof is almost the length of the roof and makes you feel spacious and comfortable. I had a Cadillac for my last vehicle and feel that this SUV surpasses it in quality and comfort. Last but certainly not least is the 8 foot interior with seats that are a breeze to fold down for hauling.

- Elizabeth L

I love my space grey Terrain.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I am definitely an impulse buyer. I fell in love with this car as soon as I sat in it. The interior for a SLE is great! The drive is smooth, and quiet. It's great on Gas! I have a thirty minute commute to work daily that I mind less with this car. I'm not uncomfortable, plenty of leg room and tons of space in the back. I got the space grey color which is gorgeous! Definitely do not regret my purchase.

- Shelby R

Great Car! Great Mileage! Everything I need! Happy Owner!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I love it. Comfortable. Solid mileage (38.4 mpg for one stretch!) and has all the (limited) bells and whistles I look for. Accelerated pretty nicely as well despite the somewhat small engine. Haven't towed anything with it so I can't speak to that. Easy to use controls. Only tiny issue I've had is it doesn't always sync with my phone when I get in the car.

- Matt P

A great vehicle to own for those want an SUV

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

The GMC Terrain is a fanatic vehicle. It is very spacious and drives with no issues. I've had it for 2 years now and have only needed to change my oil. There is only one issue I have to complain about and that is that the shifter was taken away for the council buttons. The vehicle has great gas mileage for an SUV and is very reliable.

- Eric S

My experience with our GMC Terrain has been a great ride so far!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

The GMC Terrain is a wonderful vehicle. The highway mpg is really nice while the city mileage is a little less desirable. Lots of storage and easy to reach controls. The backup camera is nice too. It's a great family vehicle that has gone camping and back and forth in the city. A couple of long road trips too without worry.

- Jonathan B

I love the entertainment technology.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I love this car. People often say is it like the Chevy Equinox and I say absolutely not. It is pure quality. Runs way better than the Chevy Equinox. This is the reason I won't switch makes. It runs smoothly and gets great gas mileage. It has a ton of options that you can add when you are leasing or purchasing your vehicle.

- Jason K

Great and reliable vehicle.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I am currently leasing a 2018 GMC terrain, so far I've had no issues with the vehicle I'm very happy with the lease and the car is very smooth in handling and acceleration. I get pretty good gas mileage at nearly 28 miles per gallon. The car is reliable and drives well in bad weather conditions such as rain and snow.

- Jay P

Safe, 4 door, all wheel drive, SUV that supports Apple CarPlay.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

2018 GMC Terrain is very reliable, push-to-start, automatic-start, very comfortable, spacious, great cargo space, touch-screen media player, supports Apple CarPlay, with excellent performance, and safe. I only wish my version had a sunroof, and automatic rear cargo door for easy loading/unloading.

- Rachel W

I feel safe in my car and wouldn't change it

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

I love my car I have a lot of safety add ons which I personally love that if I'm near a car my seat vibrates to let me know. I like that I can download an app to connect with the navigation system in the car but the only problems I have with it is just the recalls that got fixed right away

- Ashley C

Blind spots can be challenging

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

There are some extra blind spots when looking through rear view mirror. I have to turn my head totally around in order to see if it's safe to change lanes. Sometimes I have to change the angle of my side view mirrors also. I also have a hard time adjusting my seat vertically, up n down

2018 GMC Terrain overall review

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

With a lengthy list of features, excellent fuel economy estimates, and a cabin lined with first rate material, the GMC Terrain is certainly a good compact SUV. It has three turbocharged engine options, and a smooth comfortable ride. However rearward visibility is limited.

- Bertha H

The Terrain has been great!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

My vehicle has been nothing short of amazing since I bought it. The ride is really smooth. We have had no problems with the vehicle thus far. The Terrain has a great amount of room in the backseat and cargo area. It gets great gas mileage and has been very reliable.

- Carrie L

I love the full body extended sunroof!

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

This was my first SUV and I have been extremely happy with it. It's not overly big but still roomy at the same time. The large sunroof is my favorite and I love the heated seats. I don't like that it does not have a CD player. Also that a few recalls have come out.

- Anita C

Love my 2018 GMC Terrain! I would buy another in a second.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

Smooth drive and I discover more features every day. It has plenty of room and the gas mileage is great. It's a wonderful daily driver. The hill descent feature allows me to comfortably navigate hills. The turbo charged engine gives more than enough get up and go!

- Amanda M

My vehicle is a medium sized SUV and it turns off when I stop to save gas.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

Performance is great, does well in all weather types, would buy this type again. Very comfortable to drive and has a pretty good gas mileage I think in comparison to any other vehicle that I have ever owned or driven since I have been driving. Fits car seats well.

- Casey F

The terrain is an amazing vehicle.

2018 GMC Terrain SLE

Love my terrain, it is the second one I have leased and will more than likely get another when this lease is up. It has great comfort. The gas mileage is amazing for a crossover. I feel safe and secure is this vehicle and I travel daily almost 2 hours a day.
