Schedule A Test Drive

Performance (fuel efficiency, mpg etc.)

As far as performance is concerned, the 2018 Lincoln MKX takes the cake with 303 Horsepower over the 2018 GMC Terrain’s 170 Horsepower. This of course comes at the cost of gas mileage. This year’s Lincoln MKX has an EPA Fuel Economy of 25 miles on the highway and 17 miles in the City and a combined EPA fuel economy of 20 miles. The 2018 Terrain comes in at a more appealing 30 miles on the highway and 26 miles in the city with combined miles per gallon at 28 miles. Also, the GMC carries a lower capacity fuel tank so it will cost you less at the gas pump. The both come in automatic transmissions and are 2 Wheel Drive and so the driver will not have much of options for these aspects of the vehicle.

As far as the engine is concerned, the GMC Terrain has 1.5 Liter engine that take Turbo gas for its direct injection fuel system. Its counterpart has a larger 3.7 liter engine that takes regular unleaded fuel in its V6 engine. It seems that this choice will depend on what the driver is looking for in their vehicle. Those who perhaps do not have to drive a long way in their commute, are ok with sacrificing gas mileage and are looking for more power when they hit the gas pedal will be happy to find that the Lincoln MKX will best suit their needs. Those who would like to save money at the gas pump get more distance driving out of their vehicle and don’t mind a slightly slower Mid-Size SUV will be more than happy with a 2018 GMC Terrain and will definitely get more bang for their buck. Here at Castle, we would love to take you on a test drive in the wonderful new GMC Terrain so that you can see the difference and how perfect it can fit your needs!
