Driving and Performance of the 2020 GMC Terrain


The 2020 GMC Terrain joins the segment of five-seat crossover SUVs and has made its place secure in the market with its relentless delivery of smooth performance, which is perfectly matched with its exterior style. Ride comfort and standard equipment add more feathers to its crown while its wide range of lineup sells the 2020 edition of Terrain in SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali flavors that feature higher levels of creature comforts, as well as performance score as you step up the trim ladder.

Engine Options

This year, the 2020 GMC Terrain sees in its engine department the presence of a 1.5- and a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine. It goes without saying that the 2.0-liter one will offer more grunting power and will be able to tow heavy goods better than the lower capacitive engine. The Blackfoot GMC dealer confirmed that it does have the maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. GMC sets up front-wheel-drive as the standard drive train configuration while all-wheel-drive can be installed as well as an upgrading option on almost all versions. Irrespective of the engine you choose, all the 2020 GMC Terrain models will come with a 9-speed automatic transmission that will ensure superb handling responses without a manual effort.

The 2020 GMC Terrain lineup is divided into two flavors of turbocharged engines, though the earlier turbodiesel option is ticked off from the current list of options.

Horsepower and Torque

As mentioned above, the 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine that comes as the standard engine option is capable of making 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. This score is good for those who mostly move around the town, while those who often drive through the highway will need the 2.0-liter turbo inline-4 engine, as it will generate 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, you get this power train as standard if you choose the higher trims. One who buys this power plant can be assured of his Terrain being able to tow up to 3,500 pounds which will be an added advantage.

Performance Tweaks

GMC makes all-wheel drive like a part-time setting for all the Terrain models of the 2020 edition. Though the system by default will start with front-wheel drive, it can start sending the power to the rear wheels as well whenever the driver wishes to. For this, all he has to do is rotate a knob on the console in order to engage it.

The test drivers of the Blackfoot GMC dealership showroom explain that GMC improvises the drive train configuration this way to save fuel and therefore the running cost in normal driving conditions while assuring better grip on the vehicle for the drivers when they have to pass through slippery surfaces. But apart from this GMC also adds a handful of sharp driving dynamics like tighter suspension with small 17-inch rims as standard equipment, bigger 19-inch wheels to guarantee an above the average performance that pushes the 2020 GMC Terrain to stand higher in its own segment platform.
