The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.0
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Equinox draws closer to the Blazer in size and mission—and in price. The 2021 Ford Escape is the softer side of the Blue Oval’s small crossover 1-2 combo. The 2021 GMC Terrain tacks away from truck-like function toward urbane utility.
