2017 Ford Flex vs. 2018 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 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Flex as you will with the GMC Terrain, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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. In this case, the Ford Flex will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Terrain.

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

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the GMC Terrain, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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 more 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.
