2021 GMC Terrain vs 2021 Cherokee

Compare the 2021 GMC Terrain and the 2021 Jeep Cherokee

On the hunt for a compact crossover with standard power and head-turning good looks? You've probably come across the GMC Terrain and the Jeep Cherokee as potential front-runners in your SUV shopping process. If you can't decide, allow the experts at Hill Buick GMC to make you aware of some of the key differences that could make all the difference in your daily drives.


While the GMC Terrain and Jeep Cherokee base engines are quite different, the GMC offers more torque right off the bat. You'll find 203-pound-feet of torque from the get-go in the GMC compared to only 171-pound-feet of torque in the Jeep. Thanks to a strong steel frame and lots of distance from the ground, the GMC Terrain model also prioritizes a quiet, smooth ride, which can't be said for the Jeep Cherokee.

Technology Features

If you're searching for a standard seven-inch touchscreen, a complete suite of driver's assistance features, more cargo space, and four USB ports, the GMC Terrain is for you. While the Jeep Cherokee doesn't fail on providing tech integration, most of it requires an upgrade, and driver's assistance features are not part of the base model as they are with the GMC.


The 2021 GMC Terrain takes the lead for style compared to the 2021 Jeep Cherokee. For starters, a wider spectrum of design appointments are made available across the trim level lineup, such as chrome details outside and in, leather surfaces, cushioned seating, and fantastic attention to detail, for which the Jeep Cherokee just doesn't have the spectrum of options to compete. To top things off, the Terrain offers a top-tier luxury trim known as the Denali, which puts well-appointed luxury features throughout the cabin. This is not an option with the Jeep SUV.
