Crossover SUVs are quickly becoming one of the most popular vehicles on the road today. Drivers everywhere can enjoy the spacious interior and capable performance without sacrificing decent fuel economy ratings. Today we'll compare the 2016 GMC Terrain and 2016 Ford Escape in order to help you choose the best crossover for your lifestyle. The 2016 GMC Terrain is a crossover with a truly impressive performance, and a great design to match. We will help you decide between the two.
Looking at the exterior of these two vehicles, it's easy to tell the difference. The taller and more traditional boxy design of the GMC Terrain stands out against the Ford's streaked-back headlights and smaller grille. The sloping roofline of the Ford Escape means less headspace in the rear seats, but does offer the vehicle a more sedan-like shape. Under the hood, the 2.4-liter I-4 engine inside the 2016 GMC Terrain beats the Ford Escape in both horsepower and fuel economy. While the differences in fuel economy are only slight, the larger fuel tank inside the Terrain also contributes to less time at the gas station. More horsepower on the Terrain means a more responsive driving experience, but both vehicles are rated up to 1,500 lbs in towing capacity.

The interior features of these two vehicles are similar in number, but much different in design. Both crossovers come with standard Bluetooth capability and a first-row LCD screen. Both include a 6-speaker audio system and standard steering wheel audio controls for convenience. However, the more rounded and curvy interior design of the 2016 Ford Escape can make the control center seem more crowded and less organized. A more linear design inside the 2016 GMC Terrain gives the features a more modern appeal. Seating for five inside both vehicles means you have space for up to five adults, and folding rear seats means that you can also utilize the back space for extra cargo. When it comes to performance and design, the better value goes to the 2016 GMC Terrain.
