Love Our New 2023 Denali Terrain!

We purchased the Denali Terrain 2023. The car is great. I have had four knee surgeries and needed a car to get in and out easily and comfort seating. The controls for adjusting the seat just the way you like are great. I am troubled also by back problems and totally love the heated seat when needed. Sometimes I just want to ride around and turn the heat on and adjust seat so my back feels better. The different controls and are numerous. I love the safety control warnings and info with traffic. The screen is fabulous and helps so much. When ever I park I like to drive in and park and then hold on brake put it in reverse so the screen then comes on and shows how I parked. I like the levers in cargo area for putting seats down and also like how flat they sit. Plenty of room. The back seat is roomy even when person in front is back. Enjoy being up higher than a vehicle. I feel I can see more and it also makes me feel safer. The Terrain looks beautiful and love all the chrome in front. The car seems bumpy but not as bad as our last. The roads are in rough shape here. It has a lot of pick-up my husband demonstrated that to me and he wont be doing that again unless it is necessary. It is a turbo 4 cylinder and can not believe the power you feel. All in all Iove the car and getting good mileage. Purchased car from Boucher in Waukesha. They were not pushy. Explained everything in detail and were very fair. Great place to purchase!


An Honest Review

As a GMC Terrain owner of 7 months, I cannot tell you how much I hate the fact that I purchased my vehicle. Below is my review CONS - MPG for 17500 miles is - 26mpg - Gas tank range - 380 miles, if you are lucky, 387 miles - Driving - uneven roads, speed bumps, gravel roads, and dirt roads must be avoided as much as possible - This vehicle does not deserve the AT4 tag; if you are a disabled veteran like myself and have chronic pain, driving this vehicle outdoors or off the paved roads will physically hurt you. - Towing - GMC mechanics would have to cut the bumper to add a tow bar; installing this system is too expensive. - There are almost no accessories available for this vehicle. - Cargo space is horrible - I cannot fit my wheelchair in this vehicle without folding down the seats in the back. Heaven forbid I have to take anyone else with me other than my family. - No in-cabin air filter - I did not expect this in a non-base model. - Doe not fit my lifestyle at all. - Lacks power and responsiveness. - Roof rack for a vehicle that cannot go off road does not make sense to me - To make this vehicle off-road worthy would be extremely costly - Touch screen system keeps dropping my phone connection; this is aggravating PROS - Comfort - the seats are nice, but that is it. - The camera system - The safety features I hope that my review assist you in your next purchase, Joe Ferrara


Worst Financial Decision in my Lifetime!!

If you like the outdoors, do not purchase this SUV. Updated 3 June 2023. First, I appreciate GM Financial services for providing financing, but the Terrain AT4 is not at all what it claims to be. I have driven my GMC Terrain AT4 for 7 months, and I am completely disappointed and wish that I never purchased this vehicle. Ground clearance is garbage. I wouldn't trust taking this vehicle off-road in any condition. Even gravel roads are a challenge for this vehicle. AT doesn't stand for all-terrain it stands for A Terrain, meaning paved roads only. 2023 AT4 doesn't have an in cab air filter, so you will smell everything that the road offers. Thank you for your time, and I hope this review helps,


Denali made the difference for us

We are very happy with our Terrain Denali. Our first choice was the 2023 Lincoln Corsair 1a but there are no in inventory. The Terrain Denali was 1b. Great styling exterior and interior
