    Nice car.

    The Envoy is MUCH better looking, even after so many years. Envoy's rock. Bring them back GM!

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    They're warming up to each other in the garage quite nicely though.

    None. Complete base model.

    The parents were on a budget. Incredibly well equipped for a base model though. Only thing I really wish we had from the SLE-2 trim are the roof rails.

    Re: 2013 GMC Terrain SLE-1

    What are your thoughts, now owning both the Envoy and the Terrain?

    From what I see where I work, a good number of Terrain owners traded in a Trailblazer/Envoy. Logically it makes sense as it is the "replacement" for their vehicle, but I wonder if there was a traditional SUV vs. the Terrain available, what would people choose?

    The Terrain seems to provide everything the Envoy did (drive comfortable, reasonable power, good storage) while providing slightly better fuel economy in V6 form, and much better in 4 cylinder form. Actually, I see quite a few GMT-360 extended version owners going for the Acadia.

    Re: 2013 GMC Terrain SLE-1

    Well, it's like I told my mom earlier.

    "You're down almost 100 horsepower and 100 lb ft of torque from me, and your engine drives the wrong wheels."

    In all honesty, she's a good little crossover. I love the power in my Envoy but my rapidly aging parents have no need for something like that.

    If it were up to me, I'd get another midsize SUV. But this is actually replacing a 2007 Malibu.

    Something I did note after looking at these pictures and a friend of mine also said: There are some design similarities between the two. It's almost like an evolution.

    Re: 2013 GMC Terrain SLE-1

    That looks really nice for a base model. Base models are often quite apparent, including the Terrain's twin, the Equinox. I like how the base model includes the Color Touch radio, fog lights, and rear tinted windows. Enjoy!

    Interesting how the base-model GMC comes with foglights, yet the equivalent Cadillac does not.

    Re: 2013 GMC Terrain SLE-1

    Great choice.

    I like the base model Terrain even more now that they added the color screen and steering wheel controls, as earlier versions with the steering wheel "blank" and normal radio did look more plebian. These do not, and thankfully GMC doesn't dumb down the exterior except for removing roof rails.

    Great car. Mom is nearing 30k on her 2011 SLT-1 AWD V6 and still perfect. Finally drove it a few miles last month and drum tight, silent, comfortable, feels huge inside and SMOOTH.

    Does look oddly similar to the older Envoy, though more refined and better built. Overall stature almost a dead ringer, though.

    Much better built indeed. My Envoy has an A-pillar rattle and rattles in both the front doors. The Terrain is dead quiet inside.

    Having gone over the paperwork for her earlier today, it would seem as though the dealer actually charged us LESS than Preferred Pricing before incentives and EVA. Weird, but I'm not complaining.

    The Envoy is almost a decade old no? Beat the Terrain up for ten years, then let us know..........

    Seeing the side-by-side shot its weird, the Terrain looks bigger, but I know its really not.
