For me, the best news is I'm already getting 30 MPG with just 150 miles on the vehicle!
It is also one very smooth and comfortable riding SUV with excellent handling!

Glad to hear your happy with it... but everything I've read says the 4 cylinder is under powered. I've never driven one, so only what I've read.
The Direct Injection 2.4L with the 6-spd in the Equinox/Terrain is very peppy, actually, and many have said it feels spunkier than the optional DI 3.0L V6 that's naturally a little lazier in feel and heavier. That's why most of these sold now are the standard 2.4L, on top of the higher mpg ratings. All depends on what you want or are used to, in a smaller/mid-size ute.
Before... '09 Pontiac G8 GT
Sold... '09 Avalanche 2LT Z71 2wd, Summit White/Cashmere, Rear Camera, Luxury Package, Sunroof, Roof Rack, WeatherTech Floor Liners, 3M Clear Bra, Michelin LTX M/S2 Tires

From 0 - 60 mph, this Terrain could mop the floor against my 2007 Sierra w/5.3L V-8 - and easily take my wife's 3.6L V-6 Rendezvous!
Whether it is the mating with the 6 speed automatic or the way the engine is tuned - I don't know. My last experience with a 4 cylinder was a Grand Am - absolutely no comparison!
I've never driven the 6 cyl Terrain - but for my usage - (it will never be heavily loaded or towing anything) - I'll gladly take the better gas mileage with this engine!

I doubt if you would have any problems pulling something that light. Having said that, I have not checked the manufacturers tow rating on the 4 cylinder - but generally speaking 4 cylinder vehicles are not made for towing.
Would the Terrain 4cyl be adequate (obviously not the best) for pulling a 20 ft. aluminum boat?
