The 2021 GMC Terrain is a versatile small SUV that has a well-rounded package with features, amenities, and credentials to satisfy just about every customer’s needs. From multiple engines that give you some choices for power and performance to a cabin with an impressive volume of space, the Terrain is ready for you to jump in and take on an adventure, no matter where your travels lead. The Terrain received a refresh in 2018, so it only needs light updates to continue as a top choice for buyers. This year’s modifications include a few updates to the SUV’s list of standard and available amenities. One of the Terrain’s chief rivals this year is the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer. However, the Terrain at Buick GMC Pensacola has more base engine power than the Terrain, which translates to better towing and power capabilities across the lineup. There’s more headroom and overall volume in the Terrain’s cabin, and its trunk offers more space too. If aesthetics are important in your choice of car, you’ll find that the Terrain’s exterior has a more universal appeal than the Blazer’s, which is more rugged and less refined in comparison.
