As you can see from looking at the table above, the 2018 Toyota Highlander has the upper hand in this comparison. The two models start out at comparable MSRPs, but the Highlander is larger, gives drivers more power, can seat more people, and gives drivers increased standard features when compared with the GMC Terrain.  

For starters, the Highlander gives a larger standard engine than the GMC Terrain. Though upgrades are available in the GMC Terrain, drivers will have to pay extra to access comparable performance power that they will receive as standard equipment in the Highlander model. As well as performance, the Highlander gives drivers access to more passenger seating and more cargo space than the Terrain, which is beneficial for those who have a larger family or know they will need to carry more cargo on their outings.  

Drivers of the Highlander will also enjoy standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). This is a blend of active safety features that help you to identify potential hazards and practice defensive driving. In the GMC Terrain, drivers must look to upper trim levels to access comparable safety equipment. This means drivers of the Highlander will have greater value in their vehicle and can drive with increased peace of mind.
