  • Safety

    2018 GMC Terrain

    “Surrounded by confidence” epitomizes GMC’s philosophy toward safety. That mindset can be seen throughout the 2018 GMC Terrain, which holds a four-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In addition to features like StabiliTrak, the Terrain comes with a host of safety features that especially come in handy for parents.
    The 2018 Terrain comes with a Teen Driver mode which allows parents to customize the vehicle’s settings when it is being driven. Certain features can be limited or turned off; some safety features can be set to turn on automatically. An in-vehicle report system can help you keep track of your teen’s driving habits as well.
    Passenger-sensing airbags are also included, which suppress the deployment of airbags when there’s no one in the passenger’s seat. This can help avoid the need to replace expensive airbags for no reason. Rear Park Assist and Cross-Traffic Alert signals are also available as add-ons.

    2018 Nissan Rouge

    As before, the Rouge comes with many safety options, though many require additional packages, which can drastically increase the price of your new vehicle. The aforementioned Intelligent All-Wheel Drive will cost a pretty penny if you want it on your new crossover; however, passenger-sensing airbags are included stock on the 2018 Nissan Rouge.
    Nissan’s Vehicle Dynamic Control is also available for the Rouge, reducing engine output and auto-engaging the brakes to ensure you stay on your intended path in slick conditions. And no matter the conditions, the 2018 Nissan Rouge allows drivers to keep an eye on the status of their tires just in case one of your tires happens to spring a leak.
    However, more robust services such as NissanConnect can add nearly $10,000 to the final price of the Rouge. NissanConnect allows drivers to send commands to your car through Alexa, access navigation or communication apps hands-free and gives you safety information about your vehicle and its performance on the fly. So while the Rouge may, at first blush, appear to be the superior car, the power and price of the 2018 GMC Terrain make us give it the nod over the more technologically advanced, yet expensive Nissan.

  • Efficiency

    2018 GMC Terrain

    While the 2L Turbo engine takes a toll on the GMC Terrain’s fuel efficiency, the standard engine gets an EPA-estimated 26/30 MPG. This combined with the Terrain’s standard Stop/Start feature means you’ll pay less at the pump overall. The increased versatility granted by the performance gains from the larger engine more than makes up for the slight increase in fuel consumption.

    2018 Nissan Rouge

    The 2018 Nissan Rouge does have the edge on fuel efficiency, getting an EPA-estimated 25/32 MPG. Unfortunately, without a standard Stop/Start system, you won’t be able to get the most out of your Nissan without a costly upgrade. The 2018 Nissan Rouge hybrid package tacks more than $2,000 onto the MSRP in order to maximize fuel economy.

  • Performance

    2018 GMC Terrain

    The 2018 GMC Terrain’s standard 1.5L Turbo engine boasts a respectable 170 horsepower, which can be upgraded to a 2L Turbo engine with minimal loss on fuel economy. The 2L Turbo engine has 252 standard horsepower, making your crossover into an even more versatile vehicle when pulling trailers or boats. The added torque doesn’t hurt either.
    To mitigate the extra fuel consumption of the larger engine and increase the overall fuel efficiency of the 1.5L Turbo engine, the 2018 GMC Terrain comes with a Stop/Start engine control system equipped standard. The system allows the engine to shut off when the vehicle makes a complete stop and automatically restart once the driver removes their foot from the brake pedal.
    A MacPherson strut front suspension and StabiliTrak™ electronic stability control system put that power and efficiency to use. By enhancing vehicle control during emergency maneuvers, this system automatically adjusts the 2018 GMC Terrain’s brakes and engine torque. This helps keep you on your intended path no matter what the road conditions or weather can throw at you.

    2018 Nissan Rouge

    The 2018 Nissan Rouge’s 2.5L 4-cylinder engine is the only option for this crossover and gets about as much horsepower as the 2018 GMC Terrain. It does, however, provide the 2018 Nissan Rouge with marginally better gas mileage compared to the GMC crossover. However, with far less torque and overall horsepower, the Rouge falls short with its engine.
    As you will see, the 2018 Nissan Rouge excels is in its extras. Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive functions similarly to GMC’s StabiliTrakTM, in that it assists the driver during emergency maneuvers or harsh road/weather conditions. But while the 2018 GMC Terrain comes with that feature standard, you’ll have to pay nearly $1,500 to get the same functionality out of the 2018 Nissan Rouge.
    The Nissan vehicle also comes with dynamic drive technologies which add a number of mechanical functionalities to the vehicle. Hill Start Assist helps protect the 2018 Nissan Rouge from rollbacks on steep hills. Intelligent Trace Control adjusts each wheel individually, allowing the 2018 Nissan Rogue to hug curves and turn corners smoothly. Active Ride Control helps keep your ride smooth when driving over bumpy terrain. Finally, Intelligent Engine Brake grants smoother deceleration, helping the driver avoid stopping short or jerking the vehicle further when stopping.
