Power and Performance

The Ford’s 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine offered just 20 mpg/city and 29 mpg/highway efficiency, potentially costing drivers hundreds more in fuel costs over the life of the vehicle.
The GMC Terrain is designed to do more than just provide an engaging driving experience – it’s engineered to deliver a safer one as well thanks to advanced design and materials that make it more resistant to damage in a crash. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the GMC was safer than the Ford, receiving an overall score of “Good” in crash test ratings – the highest the organization offers. The Ford scored a below average “Acceptable” rating. The Terrain is designed to avoid crashes as well as survive them, thanks to a powerful braking system that brought the SUV to a full stop from 70 mph in just 161 feet, according to Car and Driver. The Edge required 187 feet to perform the same maneuvers, a difference of 16 feet.
