SAN ANTONIO, Texas, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There are almost no other automakers out there that are not knee-deep in the production of one or several versions of a crossover SUV. Cavender Buick GMC North has several version available bearing, obviously, a Buick or GMC badge. When it comes to choosing the perfect crossover SUV for a customer's family, the options can get pretty muddy. Cavender Buick GMC North is there to help by taking one of its more popular models and directly comparing it to a top competitor. In this case the dealership has pitted the 2014 GMC Terrain vs. the 2014 Ford Explorer.
Right away the 2014 GMC Terrain jumps out to an early lead with its powerful V-6 engine that makes 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. With the standard six-speed transmission, the 2014 Terrain is able to record Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy ratings of 17 miles per gallon in the city and 24 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2014 Ford Explorer answers that challenge with a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine, that is rated for 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. Conventional wisdom would say that with a lower power output should come with better fuel-economy. This isn't true, the Ford and GMC SUVs have the same EPA fuel estimates.
Another area that the 2014 GMC Terrain has an advantage over the 2014 Ford Explorer is in refinement. GMC has taken many of the lessons they have learned about building some of the smoothest pickup trucks available and applied them to building crossover SUVs like the Terrain and its siblings. People who choose the 2014 GMC Terrain will be very pleased with its quick and precise handling given its size. Additionally, there is the option to outfit the 2014 Terrain with all-wheel drive to give drivers extra confidence on less than ideal road conditions.
