Welcome to Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta
This eye-catching compact SUV has undergone a few changes for 2024, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. The 2024 GMC Terrain is the answer for families who want a smaller SUV that can rise to the challenge of everyday errands and weekend road trips.
In 2024, the Terrain will be offered in two new hues—Riptide Metallic and Downpour Metallic—and in four different trim options, with the GMC Pro Safety Plus driver assistance suite coming standard on the higher trim levels. A Midnight Edition adds extra style to the Terrain's trim lineup, while the Elevation Edition gives you access to more features for an unforgettable ride every time.
Impressive modern looks, comfortable seating, and an updated roomy cabin all help the Terrain stand out this year in the competitive compact market, while updated tech and premium standard safety features make the Terrain a valuable buy for drivers looking to get the most for their dollar. Although there is only one engine choice this year, sleek styling and reliable performance make the bold Terrain worth a look for families that want a dependable SUV that can grow alongside them.
The athletic handling of the Terrain helps make up for the lack of engine choices this year. Drivers searching for a dependable powertrain will appreciate the Terrain's standard 1.5L turbocharged engine, which is balanced with GMC's impressive nine-speed automatic transmission, culminating in the Terrain's smooth performance. Drivers can expect up to 175 hp with 203 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty of power for day-to-day activities or coursing rural topography.
The Terrain's all-wheel drive Traction Select System adds extra flexibility; drivers can easily switch between standard front- and all-wheel drive, and being able to adjust your vehicle's performance with the turn of a dial makes the Terrain a capable vehicle for those tackling muddy, slippery, or snowy roads.
The available Traction Select System also includes Off-Road Mode in case your adventure takes you past the pavement; selecting Off-Road Mode gives you more control over uneven, rocky, or sandy surfaces and increases the overall stability of your vehicle. Likewise, Hill Descent Control gives drivers additional braking assistance when tackling steep slopes.
Each of the four trims comes standard with the 1.5L turbocharged engine, with an engaging fuel economy of 24 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway, in front-wheel drive. While trims like the entry-level SLE offer the Traction Select System as standard, you need to level up to the AT4 to get the Traction Select System with the Off-Road Mode and standard all-wheel drive. Your fuel economy in all-wheel drive decreases only a touch, to 24 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
The 2024 Terrain is not a rough-and-tumble powerhouse like a fully-kitted off-road pickup truck would be, but sometimes all you need is a reliable vehicle that can tackle the commute just as well as get you to a mountaintop overlook, both of which the Terrain is perfect for.
The Terrain is understated yet confident on the road. It's dependable for your everyday needs, and it doesn't ask for much in return. If you want a vehicle that lets you jump in and go, get the Terrain and get where you're going without delay.
The interior of the Terrain features updated tech, wide color touchscreens, and an airy modern cabin that delivers plenty of room to move around. The Terrain features seating for five across two rows, and flat-folding seats let you capitalize on the SUV's max 63.3 cu.ft. of cargo space.
The versatile cabin makes it possible for drivers to haul objects that are up to eight feet in length. For those who will only be hauling passengers, the Terrain was designed to be roomy so that they can enjoy the ride without feeling cramped. In the front row, the Terrain sports a headroom of 40.0 inches and legroom of 40.9 inches, which is great for taller drivers.
Whether you decide to go for the base trim or level up, drivers will enjoy the premium materials and soft touch accents like leather that enhance the cabin. While the SLE and SLT trim offer modern cloth seating, drivers can take things up a notch with the sporty AT4 trim that offers black leather front seating with orange detailing. The top-level Denali doesn't disappoint with perforated leather seating with French stitching.
Whichever trim you choose, you can't go wrong. The streamlined dash and user-friendly tech make the Terrain remarkable at every level, and additional comfort can be found in the Terrain's available heated and ventilated front seats. A heated steering wheel adds further warmth on a crisp morning, and if you're looking to let in a little more sun, the available Skyscape Sunroof is there to help you enjoy the view, no matter where you're seated.
This modern tech adds to the Terrain's overall convenience. With available features like Alexa Built-In, you can stay connected, shop, and link to compatible at-home technology, all using just the sound of your voice. To make your day even easier, ask Alexa to help you with directions, to stream a favorite playlist, or to change your radio station—all without taking your hands off the wheel.
A customizable Head-Up Display lets you personalize your driving experience so you can see important information right there on the lower windshield. The Head-Up Display includes drive data like the speed limit, your current speed, your drive mode, and more. It's possible to adjust the height and brightness of the display to your preferred levels, too.
The Terrain's nifty HD Surround Vision is available for the SLT, AT4, and Denali trims; this uses your exterior cameras to generate a complete view of your surroundings. This tech was designed to help you avoid potential collisions when pulling in or out of tight spaces. Drivers can switch their vantages to favor a particular view; it's never been easier to be safer in your vehicle.
The 2024 Terrain boasts two safety systems, depending on the trim you go for. The standard is the GMC Pro Safety suite, whose driver assistance features are designed to keep you covered and give you the confidence you need behind the wheel. The driver assistance features included with the GMC Safety Pro are Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, IntelliBeam High Beam Assist, and an HD Rear Vision Camera.
If you decide to level up to the high-end trim choices of the AT4 or the Denali, you will unlock additional safety features that are part of the GMC Pro Safety Plus package. These include Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist. These higher trims also come with GMC's HD Surround Vision.
Both versions of the GMC Pro Safety suite were created to give drivers the peace of mind they are looking for when they're traveling with loved ones. Visible and audible alerts help keep you on top of things, while reactionary systems can help you prevent accidents. The balanced safety systems featured on the Terrain make this compact SUV a safe and reliable ride for drivers and their families.
