Navigating the crossover SUV market today can be a struggle when nearly every car brand has a similar model to offer. It makes it even more difficult when each vehicle made today rolls out with new technologies and safety features that weren’t available even five years ago. To make the process easier for you, we will compare the 2015 GMC Terrain vs 2015 Chevy Equinox to highlight the similarities and differences between the two vehicles. Which one will come out ahead?
First we’ll discuss what these two SUV crossovers have in common. Both the Terrain and the Equinox feature a 4-cylinder engine at the base level, that offers excellent fuel economy ratings. The higher trims of each vehicle also offer a V6 engine to give the driver more horsepower and torque if needed. Each vehicle has seating for up to 5 and offers foldable back seats to increase cargo space. Modern convenience features like speed sensitive volume and media device capability makes both vehicles an excellent choice.

There are, however, a few things that separate the GMC Terrain from its competitor, the Chevy Equinox. The powerful and aggressive exterior styling of the GMC Terrain gives it a more unique presence on the road to match it’s high-tech interior.
