Quiet and comfortable ride; sliding and reclining back seat offers bigger-SUV comfort; good storage space; powerful V6 option
Underwhelming 4-cylinder power and fuel economy; outdated interior controls and tech; cumbersome handling; disappointing cargo space
The Terrain offers two engine choices. A 2.4-liter 4-cylinder is standard, producing 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy with front-wheel drive is 21 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined, or 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined with optional all-wheel drive. This falls well short of class leaders and we've found it's even worse in the real world.
Drivers who want more power can step up to the optional 3.6-liter V6, which makes 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. The V6 is rated at 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive knocks it down to 16/23/18.
