2022 GMC Terrain vs. GMC Acadia: Dimensions

When you are trying to decide between the Terrain or Acadia you’ll have to consider the distinct size difference. The GMC Terrain provides seating for five passengers and 63.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The standard flat-folding seats simplify the process of configuring the space to adapt to your cargo and passenger needs. The Acadia, on the other hand, has space for up to 7 passengers with its three rows of seats and a maximum cargo capacity of 79 cubic feet.

Similar to the terrain, the GMC Acadia also has flat-fold seats and Smart Slide second-row seats. Getting into the third-row is simplified with the Smart Slide, and the third-row 50/50 split seats fold flat for extra cargo storage. Also, the second-row passenger-side seat can be slid forward and angled slightly even if an empty forward-facing child seat is in place with the LATCH system.
