6-speed automatic transmission

  • Low first-gear ratio and wide spreads in successive gear ratios translate to brisk acceleration
  • Fuel-saving ECO mode (available at the touch of a button with 4-cylinder engine) changes the shift points for better around-town gas mileage
  • High overdrive ratio helps with fuel efficiency (EPA-estimated 32 MPG highway, FWD 4-cylinder engine)
  • Automatic Engine Grade Braking uses the engine and transmission to slow Terrain on long downhill runs, reducing brake wear and giving you more control
