2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 GMC Terrain Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Terrain, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the GMC Terrain.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Terrain. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Equinox will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Terrain.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the GMC Terrain. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Terrain.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Equinox and the GMC Terrain are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has the same turning radius as the GMC Terrain, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Equinox will do just as well as the GMC Terrain, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Equinox and the GMC Terrain.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the GMC Terrain. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Equinox as you will in the GMC Terrain.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Terrain.
