Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Venza. The GMC Terrain offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Toyota Venza, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the GMC Terrain, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the GMC Terrain and the Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is about the same width as the Toyota Venza. The GMC Terrain is slightly shorter than the Toyota Venza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the GMC Terrain transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
The GMC Terrain has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

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 Venza. The GMC Terrain has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Venza.
