2015 GMC Terrain vs. 2015 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Murano, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the GMC Terrain and the Nissan Murano.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain as you will with the Nissan Murano, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Terrain will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Murano. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Terrain is much slimmer than the Nissan Murano, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The GMC Terrain is slightly shorter than the Nissan Murano, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Murano, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the GMC Terrain will do just as well as the Nissan Murano, since they have about the same towing capacity. The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Nissan Murano. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Nissan Murano, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Murano.
