2017 GMC Terrain vs 2017 Honda CR-V

Finding the ideal SUV for your driving needs is no easy task. But here at Holiday Automotive, we don’t want the vehicle buying process to be a hassle for you. Instead, we do our best to help you compare popular models within the segment that you’re shopping in. Right here, for example, we are comparing the 2017 GMC Terrain vs the 2017 Honda CR-V.

Perhaps the most glaring difference between the Terrain and CR-V is the CR-V’s lack of an available engine to match the V6 that the Terrain offers. Those who want more power from their Terrain can opt for an available V6 engine that pumps out 301 horsepower and 272 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V fails to offer an engine option that comes anywhere close to that kind of power output. That said, both models are available with an AWD system.

Differences Between the 2017 Terrain and CR-V

Another distinguishing feature for the Terrain is the fact that it comes with an in-vehicle assistance service. Of course, we are talking about OnStar. While the 2017 CR-V has no such feature, the Terrain gives drivers a free 3-month trial of OnStar and makes the OnStar Basic Plan available for 5 years, helping drivers access information about vehicle diagnostics, maintenance notifications and more. We also can’t forget that the Terrain comes standard with 18-inch wheels vs the CR-V’s standard 17-inch wheels, as well as an auto-dimming mirror (not standard on the CR-V) and four 12-volt DC power outlets versus the CR-V’s standard two outlets.
