The GMC Terrain and Ford Escape are similar in price, style, performance, and features, so how do you know which one is right for you? For these two SUVs, it boils down to the details. One thing the 2019 Terrain has going for it is its powertrain, which offers a smoother drive than the 2019 Escape. A 1.5-liter I-4 engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission allows for an easier and smoother ride than the Escape’s slightly less powerful engine and 6-speed transmission. The Terrain also inherits a better fuel mileage rating than the Escape with 26 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway compared to 21 city/29 highway mpg. Interestingly, though, the Escape’s handling and steering, even in its base model, seem heads above the Terrain’s. Both SUVs offer similar safety and entertainment features, like traction control, tire pressure monitoring, and a pre-collision safety system, USB connections, and 6-speaker audio systems, but when it comes to customization, the Escape wins. No packages are available for the base GMC, while each Escape trim comes with packages and standalone options, including a towing package and roof racks for its base trim.
