Whether it's the compact and budget-friendly Terrain or the expansive Yukon, there's something for everyone in the 2021 GMC SUV lineup. You'll find a vehicle suited to city driving, weekend trips away, or day-to-day family utility. Here at Hiley GMC Buick of Fort Worth, our auto experts have put together a summary of GMC's SUVs and there key features.
2021 GMC Terrain
The GMC Terrain is the smallest SUV in the lineup, making it the perfect choice if space is a premium for you when navigating around Dallas' busy streets. Despite being in the compact SUV category, the Terrain offers plenty of legroom and headroom for passengers in both rows, seating five people. Cloth upholstery comes standard, but you can upgrade to leather seating for a bit more comfort.
The Terrain is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 that's good for 170 horsepower. The second engine option, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that can manage 252 horsepower, is only available with the Terrain's range-topping Denali trim. The more powerful engine gives this SUV a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
Behind the Terrain's rear row, you'll find over 29 cubic feet of storage space. With the back seats folded flat, the storage space increases to over 63 cubic feet. The front passenger's seat can also be folded down if you're transporting long items.
The Terrain is equipped with a 7-inch infotainment screen, four USB ports, and a six-speaker audio system. You'll also benefit from Bluetooth connectivity and a wireless hot spot. If you want to upgrade, you can get a larger touch screen, a seven-speaker premium stereo, and a navigation system.
You can get the Terrain in four trims: SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali. The base trim has a starting price of $25,000, and the lineup tops out at around $38,500. The SLT trim, with a starting price of $32,500, is a great value option, since it offers leather upholstery in the cabin and larger alloy wheels.
2021 GMC Acadia
GMC's mid-sized SUV is the Acadia, which can seat seven people in its standard three-row setup. The off-roading AT4 trim is only available as a two-row vehicle with five seats.
The Acadia has a nine-speed automatic transmission and a choice of three engines. The base engine is a V-4, capable of putting out 193 horsepower. If you're looking for a touch more acceleration, consider the 230-horsepower turbocharged V-4, or the even more powerful V-6, which churns out 310 horsepower. Equipped with the most powerful engine, the Acadia can tow up to 4,000 pounds.
With a full cabin of passengers, you'll have 12.8 cubic feet of storage space behind the third row. That rises to over 41 cubic feet with the third row down.
For your entertainment, the Acadia has an 8-inch touch screen, five USB ports, and a six-speaker stereo. It also comes with Bluetooth connectivity and a wireless hot spot.
The Acadia is available in five trims: SL, SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali. The base trim starts at $29,800, and the range-topping Denali is available from $46,300. The Denali could be worth considering if you're focused on luxury and convenience, since it gives you access to wireless device charging, heated second-row seats, and ventilated front seats.
2021 GMC Yukon
The GMC Yukon is a large SUV that seats eight people in its standard setup. With its expansive cabin, the Yukon provides plenty of space for adult passengers to relax, whether they're seated up front or in the third row. The seating capacity drops to seven if you opt for captain's chairs in the second row.
The Yukon achieves steady acceleration with its base V-8 engine, which puts out 355 horsepower and is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. For top speeds on the highway, you may want to upgrade to the larger 6.2-liter V-8, which manages 420 horsepower. With the larger engine and some other additional features, the Yukon's towing capacity is 8,400 pounds, which is more than enough to hook up a decent-sized trailer.
In terms of interior cargo space, you'll find 25.5 cubic feet of storage behind the third row. With the rear row folded flat, storage space rises to over 72 cubic feet, and it reaches a mammoth 122.9 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded.
When it comes to infotainment, the Yukon is fitted with a 10.2-inch touch screen, six USB ports, and a six-speaker stereo. You can also take advantage of a wireless hot spot, Bluetooth connectivity, and a navigation system. A rear-seat infotainment system can be added with some of the trims to make sure everyone stays entertained while you're on the road.
The Yukon is offered in four trims: SLE, SLT, At4, and Denali. The SLE has a starting price of $50,700, while the Denali costs $68,400 without add-ons.
The AT4 is the trim to go for if you plan on taking your Yukon off the beaten track. The AT4 has standard four-wheel drive, which costs an extra $3,000 in all other trims. In addition, it's equipped with hill descent control, a two-speed transfer case, and skid plates. The AT4 doesn't fail to impress on the inside either, featuring a power-folding third row of seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row seats.
The Yukon XL is an even bigger version of the GMC Yukon, with an extended wheel base. As a result, you get a whopping 41 cubic feet of space behind the third row and over 145 cubic feet with both second and third rows folded flat.
