The base engine is a well-rounded 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 170 hp and 203 lb-ft torque. This engine earns high fuel economy ratings for the compact SUV class at up to 26 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway; however, the Terrain’s Diesel engine exceeds these figures.

    The most powerful engine available on the Terrain is the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which offers up to 252 hp and 260 lb-ft torque. This engine still manages to produce good fuel economy ratings at up to 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, but these estimates will drop slightly when equipped with AWD.

    The available Diesel engine offers a high level of torque and the vehicle’s best fuel economy ratings at up to 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Both gasoline engines are paired with GMC’s popular 9-speed automatic transmissions, while the diesel engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

While this engine is incredibly versatile, drivers do not have the choice of additional power or efficiency, so you’re SUV will be equipped with this engine no matter which trim level you choose to invest in.

    The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and can be configured in FWD or AWD. Drivers prioritizing efficiency will want to consider the slightly lower fuel economy ratings associated with AWD. Of course, the RAV4 can also be purchased in a hybrid model.
