2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 GMC Terrain: Compare Cars

The savvy consumer—that’s you—knows that the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and 2018 GMC Terrain are essentially the same vehicle under their sheet metal. Both are available with a trio of 4-cylinder engines, including a high-mpg turbodiesel, and they can both be ordered with front- or all-wheel drive.

Although they have many similarities, they’re unique on the road and each has its own value story to tell. We lean toward the Terrain, which justifies its modest price hike with more sound deadening and better interior materials, even if its quirky shift buttons and poor over-the-shoulder visibility are demerits.

The Car Connection's Take

7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover. The 2018 GMC Terrain tucks into a jazzy new body, and boasts a great new turbo-4 drivetrain, but needs to spread its safety message farther, and wider.
