The power is there but the throttle must be pressed down fast and firm to get jack rabbit starts.sunnyday said:Test drove a Terrain today along with the salesperson and I thought that it's not that responsive so I asked the Sales where is the eco button because i thought that its activated that's why its a little bit slow but we could not find where it is. When we got the the dealer we learned that I was actually driving a 6 cyl... I told the sales person that my caravan is only 192 hp and much heavier but its more quicker considering the 3.0 is more than 250 hp. I didn't push it hard though as we were driving in the city but still I think i made a good choice to go with 2.4 at least I have a reason if its not that responsive.
My observation is based on my experience with both caravan 3.8l and cobalt 2.4l which both are very responsive compared to 3.0l of GM
The response of the throttle makes for a smoother overall ride experience, IMO.
You'll get used to how the vehicle responds in all situations, such as passing.
It is more than sufficient for 90% of owners I'd guess.
