When it comes to choosing a new crossover-SUV, there are a large number of choices available. However, between the 2016 Chevy Equinox and the 2016 GMC Terrain, the differences are small and unimportant. When choosing between these two vehicles, it will come down to your taste in vehicle design and appearance, rather than huge differences in fuel economy and inteiror space. In fact, these vehicles are so similar, that the only real differences that come into the picture are present in the 2016 GMC Terrain Denali trim, which is much more luxurious than what the average car buyer is looking for.
We'll start with the similarities. Between these two vehicles, there are a great number of things that drivers will love. Both vehicles come with standard front-wheel drive and offer all-wheel drive at higher trim levels. The base level I-4 engine gets a boost in fuel economy rankings, for a total of up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway. A front-row LCD screen in both vehicles makes for easy media player use and added versatility through optional safety features like the rear-view camera. Both vehicles performed extremely well in safety crash tests and are the only two in the crossover-SUV class to have been awarded the Institute for Highway Safety's highest rating for small overlap front crash tests. Whichever you choose, both vehicles are a great choice for busy families looking to get where they need to go in style.
While there may not be a large number of features that differ between these two vehicles, the slightly higher price of the 2016 GMC Terrain indicates its slightly more luxurious appeal. With more chrome detailing and more aggressive exterior styling, the Terrain has a much more confident appearance. Looking towards the difference between the Denali and the trim levels available on the Equinox, it's no surprise that the Denali costs so much more than its less luxurious counterpart. Available features include heated front seats, 8-way power driver's seat, leather seats, and Pioneer Premium audio system. WHen it comes to choosing a vehicle that's right for you, we are willing to bet you'll be impressed with the 2016 GMC Terrain.
