2014 Ford Escape vs. 2014 GMC Terrain Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Ford Escape, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Escape will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain.

Convenience
The GMC Terrain requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Escape, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Escape will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Terrain.

Both the Ford Escape and the GMC Terrain have similar Destination Charges.

The Ford Escape is about the same width as the GMC Terrain. The Ford Escape is slightly shorter than the GMC Terrain, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Escape transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Terrain.

Handling
The Ford Escape has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Terrain, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Escape has a lot less horsepower than the GMC Terrain.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the GMC Terrain. The Ford Escape has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the GMC Terrain.
