The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 GMC Terrain tucks into a jazzy new body, and boasts a great new turbo-4 drivetrain, but needs to spread its safety message farther, and wider. The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.
