2011 GMC Terrain Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 182-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Although I have never seen this truck get the estimated fuel economy it boasts about in advertising, considering the shear mass of it and it's breadbox front end, with the I4 the fuel economy is very good considering it is a heavy little beast with AWD. I can average 700 kms. out of a tank of fuel no problem and on longer jaunts have seen it break 800 kms. If you are one of those people who complain about fuel consumption in this truck- you should have bought a Prius... because for what it is, it is exceptional on fuel. Try a different brand of fuel for a while, some brands have more additives and burn quicker. see full GMC Terrain review

Main reason for purchasing was we wanted a vehicle that was AWD, could tow small loads and would get reasonable fule mileage. see full GMC Terrain review

Fuel economy was a big factor in purchase decision. Real world mileage not really close to 32 epa rating, but still pretty decent for a big, comfy station wagon-esque vehicle. see full GMC Terrain review
