2014 GMC Terrain vs. 2014 Subaru Tribeca Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Subaru Tribeca. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the GMC Terrain and the Subaru Tribeca.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the GMC Terrain, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca.

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 Subaru Tribeca. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the GMC Terrain is much higher than that for the Subaru Tribeca.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little narrower than the Subaru Tribeca, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The GMC Terrain is slightly shorter than the Subaru Tribeca, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

Utility
The GMC Terrain has less seating than the Subaru Tribeca, making the Subaru Tribeca the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Subaru Tribeca, 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 Subaru Tribeca.
