There will be three drivetrain options for the upcoming 2019 GMC Terrain. Base units will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo-four unit. The engine will return 170 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque, which is 60 lb-ft and 80 hp less than 2.0-liter mill can do. As the more potent alternative, also turbo-four drivetrain consumes more fuel. Cost for extra power is 2 mpg worse combined mileage. If this is the most important to you, then your pick should be a diesel engine.

If petrol drivetrains can’t satisfy your needs, then you should move on to bigger class. GMC also responds to these challenges with the new Yukon on the way. However, this crossover cost significantly higher than $25,000. Properly equipped, GMC Terrain can cost even above $30,000.
