So let us observe how well does the 2020 GMC Terrain fulfill the duties and purposes of an SUV crossover.

At the showroom premise of the Idaho Falls Buick GMC dealer, when we first got to see and explore the 2020 year lineup of GMC Terrain, we found this five-seat crossover SUV to be rather a rounded up vehicle that has sorted each of its aspect with due respect. Each of its trim models presented themselves as a handsome travel companion that nowhere fell short of delivering comfort and convenience. All this is also safeguarded with a host of standard safety features which is the only aspect that awaits some betterment.

What Changes the 2020 Year Brings In

GMC keeps making some or other cosmetic changes to the Terrain series models all these years. So the year 2020 didn’t come with a long list of changes but followed its predeceasing models by large. The year 2020 only brought one new paint color added to the existing palette while a premium package with more convenience options is offered for the Denali buyers. It also added a more advanced layer of safety by including automatic emergency braking in the list. For the 2020 powertrain lineup, it has unfortunately dropped the turbodiesel engine that was so far been offered as an optional choice to tick on.
