Lost my terrain this weekend

Had a great 2013 gmc terrain sle. Was 2 payments from paying it off. Friday near Chattanooga, TN I got rear ended when traffic came to a slow stop. Guy way behind me never stopped. Looks like this will be totaled and getting a new ride. Thankfully no one was injured.

Absolutely loved this vehicle and had not one issue with it. I'm leaning toward an 18/19 Acadia or another terrain. Any suggestions between these 2? Thanks!

Sorry to see the Terrain damage.

Regarding a new Terrain or Acadia; The new Terrain is a little smaller than your current model, and is available only with a four cylinder turbocharged 1.5, 2.0 gas; or a 1.6 diesel engine.

The Acadia can be equipped with the desirable 3.6 engine, is physically larger, and has more passenger and cargo capacity.

Only you would know what would meet your wants and needs.

Acadia it is on those options for sure. The one I built online is cheaper than the terrain I built as well.

My brother in laws sells cars and is 100% against me getting the Acadia, but I've never had a problem with gmc vehicles. Prefer them so far actually.

Sorry about your Terrain but glad no one was hurt.

I've have/had both, a 2017 Acadia (one of the first ones built) and now a 2018 Terrain. The Acadia is a nice CUV, not anything like the older style. Like Garbec01 said it is larger than the current Terrain, seats 6-7, uses AFM on the V6 mpgs are almost identical if not better than my 18 Terrain 2.0l turbo.

Depending on what you need as far as passenger capacity and cargo space either one would be a good choice.

Look up "battery problems" with the Acadia. Several years and causes difficult to pin point ans resolve.

Forgot to add in the Acadia with the 3rd row seats up there isnít a lot of cargo space and the 3rd row seats are pretty much for short drives not major trips.

JayTee2014, I know there were problems with the older Acadia wasnít aware of battery issues with the new ones.

Been looking at the Acadia/Traverse too. No real deals on these compared to most other SUVs. See10 - 15% off on Terrain/Nox now that they are built in Mexico, and most other imports. Those sudden stops on the freeways these days are something else and pretty common. Usually no reason either, just weird.

Terrain is built in Mexico; 'Nox is built in Canada--with exception of a brief period in June, July August of 2017 when there was a strike at the Canada plant where 'Nox is built.

Think about ride quality also. The new Terrain being a light weight is not even close to the ride as the older style. Is the new Acadia built with that nice heavy ride? That is one of the main reasons I went with the Terrain in 16 is for the ride. I love it. I wanted the "boat" cushion.

How about a Cadillac?

Compared to the 2014 Enclave the ride in the 2018 Acadia was stiffer, not bad just not as soft. The 2018 Terrain's ride to us is comfortable, I think the new Terrain has an improved suspension.

The Acadia AWD has an optional suspension that rides better than it's standard one.
