The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.0
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Equinox draws closer to the Blazer in size and mission—and in price. The 2020 Ford Escape takes a more refined tack, and brings its hybrid edition back into vogue. The 2020 GMC Terrain is a stylish crossover SUV that we wish had more standard safety gear.
