Many of you may already know that both Chevy and GMC vehicles fall under the General Motors umbrella. This means that although the brands have their differences, there tend to be many similarities between models across these brands. This is certainly true in the SUV class, as you can see when comparing the 2020 GMC Terrain vs the 2020 Chevy Equinox.
The differences may be few and far between, but there are differences worth noting. We’ll help you find those differences here, as we compare the entry-level trims for each vehicle. Now, the Equinox does start at a slightly lower starting MSRP, but it comes at a cost. The Terrain comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission (compared to the Equinox’s 6-speed) and still shares the Equinox’s 26 mpg city.

|9-Speed Automatic||Transmission||6-Speed Automatic|
|Leather/Metal-Look||Steering Wheel Material||Urethane|
|Standard||Cargo Tie Downs||Not available|
|HID Low Beams||Headlights||Halogen|
Other differences between the models are more subtle but still significant. The Terrain certainly comes standard with a more premium look, evidenced by the steering wheel’s leather/metal look. It also has a premium look outside, with HID low beams versus the Equinox’s more basic halogen headlights. Then, in the back of the vehicle, the Terrain comes equipped for serious cargo hauling thanks to its standard cargo tie-downs.
