2015 GMC Terrain vs. 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Toyota FJ Cruiser will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain.

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 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

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 Toyota FJ Cruiser. 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 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Terrain is much slimmer than the Toyota FJ Cruiser, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

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

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota FJ Cruiser, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Toyota FJ Cruiser, 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 Toyota FJ Cruiser.
