Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Terrain, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Escape 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
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Terrain, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Escape or the GMC Terrain, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Escape is much wider than the GMC Terrain, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Terrain.

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

Performance
The Ford Escape has a little more horsepower than the GMC Terrain.

Powertrain
The Ford Escape has much lower torque than the GMC Terrain, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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 less cargo space than the GMC Terrain, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
