When you are in the market for a new vehicle, it can be difficult to determine which model is right for you when there are so many different models on the market. SUVs are becoming more and more popular, which means that while it is easier to find one that fits all of your needs, it is harder to sift through all of the information available for each model. That is why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because it allows you to put two similar models up side by side to figure out which one offers more of what you want and need. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2018 GMC Terrain vs 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
These two vehicles are nearly identical in almost every category, making them very evenly matched. But the Terrain has more variety in its options, which makes it the better choice overall. While both the Terrain and the Equinox have the same engine size and horsepower output, the Terrain comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual, while the Equinox has a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and auto-manual. This means that the Terrain has a smoother transition between gears and offers a more responsive drive than the Equinox. Let's take a closer look at some of the key differences between these two models.
