CHOOSE CHEVY EQUINOX ADVANTAGE
Chevrolet may have entered the compact crossover SUV market late, but once they did, the Equinox quickly became a best seller. The success of the Equinox spawned the boxy, rugged-looking GMC Terrain. They’re closely related because both are assembled next to each other at General Motors, but the Chevy Equinox has some advantages.
For starters, the 2017 Equinox is much more affordable than the GMC Terrain. It runs at around $23,100 MSRP while the GMC Terrain has a price tag of $34,275 MSRP. And when you consider the other advantages the Equinox offers below, you will be paying less to get more.Download Brochure
With its chrome-accented dual-port grille, halogen projector-beam headlights and LED running lights, the Equinox looks at home in the city or off-road. It is available in nine exterior colors, while the Terrain is only available in six.
The Terrain takes an almost opposite approach to the Equinox’s smooth lines and elegant styling. It features a more chiseled, chunky look with oddly squared fender flares. The design feels more SUV than crossover, and it looks more at home on the trail than in the city.
The Equinox offers the front seat passenger and commanding view ahead with plenty of headroom and legroom, even for rear seat passengers. A rear vision camera and available leather-appointed seats are just some of the impressive details found throughout the cabin.
The Terrain offers a quiet cabin with a sleek look, but many drivers report that the car’s handling and steering is less than satisfactory. And even though the exterior screams SUV, the Terrain’s cargo space doesn’t live up to the SUV standard.
The Equinox offers state-of-the-art technology to keep you connected and entertained. Available technology includes Siri hand-free compatible iPhone interaction, steering wheel mounted controls for steaming music easily, MyLink navigation featuring full GPS, and 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi.
The Terrain’s base model does not come equipped many desirable technology features, so getting features like Bluetooth capability will cost you extra. While the Terrain does come standard with an infotainment system that features a seven-inch touchscreen, drivers say it is difficult and frustrating to use.
The Equinox offers advanced safety features to prevent, protect and respond in the event of an accident. Available forward collision alert, rear vision assist camera, rear park assist, side blind zone alert and lane departure warning will keep you safe.
Although the GMC Terrain offers the same safety features as the Equinox, its safety ratings differ. NHSTA gave the Terrain fewer stars on its Overall Side and Side Barrier crash test, and The Car Connection gave the Equinox a better overall safety rating than the Terrain.
