The 2020 GMC Terrain offers premium technologies without straining the budgets of families. This compact crossover SUV comes in four editions, including the high-end Denali. Sold in three versions, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe also has lots of advanced technologies.


The 2020 GMC Terrain runs on a 1.5 L engine block, which is marked with the ECOTEC label. Rated at 170 net horsepower, this I-4 DOHC powertrain has a direct-injected design. Controlled by variable valve timing, the valvetrain is engineered for optimal efficiency. Also marked with the ECOTEC graphics, the 2.0 L engine block includes a turbocharger. Standard in the Denali trim, the turbo propulsion system produces 252 hp and 260 lb-ft. At Buick GMC Pensacola, we offer this compact crossover SUV with an automatic transmission system that creates nine gear ratios. With assistance from the Gear Range Select technology, you can handle the transmission with confidence. Standard on the 2020 Santa Fe, the 2.4 L GDI engine whips out 185 hp and 178 lb-ft. If you choose the optional 2.0 L turbo GDI engine, you will get an extra 50 hp and 82 lb-ft. However, this 2.0 L engine does not match the horsepower rating of the 2.0 L ECOTEC engine. The 2020 GMC Terrain at Buick GMC Pensacola has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds if you buy the optional Trailering Equipment, which includes a heavy-duty cooling system, 2-inch trailer receiver and seven-pin sealed connector. When powered by the GDI turbo engine, the Hyundai model also tows up to 3,500 pounds. Such a rating is only possible with the Trailering Package that comes with an oil cooler for the eight-speed automatic transmission system. Despite having the SHIFTRONIC design, the Santa Fe’s gearbox doesn’t offer as many options as the Terrain’s standard transmission.


Buick GMC Pensacola is a dealership that’s excited to reveal the 2020 Terrain’s interior features. Soft-touch materials and aluminum accents improve the appeal of the redesigned cabin. Featuring hard buttons instead of a lever, the all-new Electronic Precision Shift System frees precious storage space in the center console. Thanks to a leather-appointed steering wheel that’s heated, your hands will rarely get cold during a trip. An electronic button also controls the heating levels in the cushions and seatbacks of the driver’s seat. Similarly, the front passenger can press a separate button to activate heating in the seat. The outboard rear seats in the 2020 GMC Terrain at Buick GMC Pensacola are also available with heating. On a sunny day, you may open the sunroof that comes with the patented SkyScape technology. Extending over the second row, this signature sunroof offers great views of the skies for all occupants inside the 2020 Terrain. If you want heating for the 2020 Santa Fe’s seats and steering wheel, you have to buy the Limited model that carries the most expensive price tag on the roster.


A GPS navigation system is built into the GMC Infotainment System in the 2020 Terrain. Part of the optional Infotainment II Package, the multimedia platform comes with an 8.0-inch diagonal display that supports multi-touch input. A seven-speaker sound system from Bose is part of this technology package. The 2020 GMC Terrain at Buick GMC Pensacola also offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that handles up to six connected devices at once. Additionally, this compact GMC crossover SUV works with the myGMC mobile application. Some advanced features from the signature app include the Vehicle Status, GMC Smart Driver and Remote Key Fob. You surely will not find as many advanced apps from the 2020 Santa Fe’s Blue Link Connected Car System. Nevertheless, this Hyundai crossover SUV is available with a dozen speakers that carry the Infinity and QuantumLogic technologies.
