2016 Ford Flex vs. 2017 GMC Terrain Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the GMC Terrain. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the GMC Terrain, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Ford Flex is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Terrain. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Flex and the GMC Terrain have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much wider than the GMC Terrain, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the GMC Terrain.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Flex does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Terrain.

Handling
The Ford Flex has the same turning radius as the GMC Terrain, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Flex is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little less horsepower than the GMC Terrain.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the GMC Terrain, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Flex, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the GMC Terrain.

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Terrain.
