2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. Its Competition

2021 Chevrolet Equinox RS
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Chevy Equinox is related to the GMC Terrain, but GMC offers more luxurious or off-road variants of its model.

Crosstown rival Ford overhauled its Escape last year for a better car-like feel and better efficiency, which includes a hybrid option.

The heavyweights in the class are the RAV4 and CR-V that offer good looks and good space—and hybrid powertrains.

The Subaru Forester is the sure-footed pick in the class with good value, albeit an aged interior by now.
