Suspension and Handling

The Terrain Denali AWD executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Passport Elite AWD (27.5 seconds @ .64 average G’s vs. 28.1 seconds @ .62 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Terrain w/17” wheels’ turning circle is 1.9 feet tighter than the Passport AWD’s (37.4 feet vs. 39.3 feet).

Chassis

The GMC Terrain may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 450 to 500 pounds less than the Honda Passport.

The Terrain is 8.2 inches shorter than the Passport, making the Terrain easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The Terrain is 6.2 inches narrower than the Passport, making the Terrain easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The front grille of the Terrain uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Passport doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Ergonomics

The Terrain’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The Passport does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The power windows standard on both the Terrain and the Passport have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Terrain is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Passport prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The Terrain’s front and rear power windows all lower with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Passport’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to open them fully.

The Terrain’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Honda only offers heated mirrors on the Passport EX-L/Touring/Elite.

The Terrain’s power mirror controls are mounted on the armrest for easy access. The Passport’s power mirror controls are on the dash where they are possibly hidden by the steering wheel and are awkward to manipulate.

The Terrain Denali’s optional Automatic Parking Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Passport doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
