2018 GMC Terrain vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The GMC Terrain requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The GMC Terrain carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the GMC Terrain, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The GMC Terrain has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Terrain has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The GMC Terrain offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The GMC Terrain has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
