Four Star Safety Rating for 2015 GMC Terrain

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the 2015 GMC Terrain a four-star overall safety rating. The rating comes from the Terrain earning four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The Terrain comes with standard safety equipment like six airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, traction control and rearview camera. Some options include forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, side blind-zone alert and rear cross traffic alert.

All of these safety features combine to make the 2015 GMC Terrain one of the safest SUVs on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given I high remarks, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded last year’s model an overall “good” rating. We expect the 2015 model to earn a similar rating.
