2017 GMC Terrain vs. 2017 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has 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). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Escape. 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 GMC Terrain and the Ford Escape have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is about the same width as the Ford Escape. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the GMC Terrain, which is slightly longer than the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the GMC Terrain and the Ford Escape are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Ford Escape, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Ford Escape. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Ford Escape, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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