    The Terrain has nice features, but is it ever plain-looking. I really hate those flaired wheel wells/fenders.

    Re: GMC Terrain

    I test drove the Terrain & wanted to buy it.
    Dealer I went to wanted to low ball me $6500 on my trade.
    Cadillac gave me what I wanted & so I bought the SRX & glad I did!
    Terrain is a real nice car & drives just beautiful. Especially for the $$.

    Some friends of ours have a Terrain on order. They had to special order it to get the heated cloth seats. I believe our local GMC Cadillac dealer is on the closing list, so they had to go to an out-of-town dealer.

    I saw terrain and equinox demos, there's no way to compare them with SRX, they're not on the same level.

    I'm sure it's very nice, but so BOXY. It's trying to look like a mini H3 or something. The Equinox is much better looking, IMO...but still not as sexy as the SRXy.

    Re: GMC Terrain

    The Terrain is nice, but it looks too much like a mini Acadia (from the side profile and rear anyway). Nothing beats an SRX though!

    Re: GMC Terrain

    SRX is best looking of the bunch IMO.

    My only dislike is the front fender vent. Cadillac , PLEASE stop with the vents. They were cool once, but now that Ford Focus', entry level Chevy compacts, etc have them, they cheapen the look. If I buy my Lade at lease end, I am going to have the plastic chrome vents painted body color to blend in better.

    Re: GMC Terrain

    I'm not a fan of the Escalade side vents, but these on the SRX don't bother me. I guess because the sidemarker/blinker light is incorporated.

    I tend to agree with Todd on the side vents / ports. I guess that Buicks sold so well that all automakers had to pick up on that styling cue. Let's leave them to Buick - and only on legit 4-hole Buicks with a V8.

    Actually the original "side vents" were called Gills by GM, and used on the 53 Corvette, and continue to today; with some,like on the ZR1, used to cool brakes!

    Re: GMC Terrain

    I'm not really a fan of the Terrain either. Those fender flares and that grill, ugh. Srx and equinox are both much better looking imo. The SRX is great. I really like that one. We've sold quite a few even with a limited supply.

    Re: GMC Terrain

    I would assume that the Terrain would appeal to people that are already in the GMC fold. A more (truck-like clientele as it were) looking for a crossover that fits their personallity; not wrong, just different. So you've got the Terrain, the Vue, the Equinox and of course the SRX; each 'the same only different'. With the demise of the Vue the three remaining will suffice (each aiming for a different demographic).
