Compact crossover SUVs are the ideal vehicle choice for many drivers. They offer a more spacious interior than what a car offers without the large dimensions of a full-size SUV. As you explore the beautiful options available for the 2019 model year, your attention may be drawn to the 2019 Chevy Equinox. This is a third-generation version that is well-designed and loaded with features. However, you may also be interested in the 2019 GMC Terrain. The Terrain is in its second generation. While these two vehicles are similar in many ways, the Equinox’s MSRP is more affordable than the Terrain’s MSRP at the base level. This is only one of several important differences that you will notice if you examine these vehicles in detail.


The dimensions of the 2019 Equinox and the 2019 Terrain are almost identical, but they have unique looks. The Equinox has an aerodynamic look thanks to a sloping hood that fades into an angled windshield. The roof fades gently to the rear, and you will find minimal contouring on the hood and side panels. A large grille fades beautifully into angled headlights. When you compare the exterior of the Equinox to the Terrain’s style, you will notice that the Terrain’s hood is more level and has well-defined contouring. The roofline slopes more sharply to the rear. Contouring is soft on the side panels, but it is still more pronounced than on the Equinox. The grille is large and has a three-bar design. The C-shaped headlights are set apart from the grille. Both models are available in several stunning exterior color options.


If you want to be pampered on the road, you cannot go wrong with either of these SUVs. However, there are few important differences. Some of the features in the Equinox include a 4G LTE wireless hotspot, keyless entry, a remote panic alarm, a customizable digital driver’s instrumentation panel, sound and cruise controls mounted on the steering wheel, a color 7-inch display screen for the infotainment equipment, a premium sound system and more. In the Terrain, you will find cruise control, a rearview camera, keyless open, keyless start, a standard sound system, a driver’s instrumentation gauge and additional features.


As five-passenger SUVs in the same vehicle class, both of these vehicles may have appeal to you in different ways. Your style preference is a personal opinion, but you can see that the Equinox has a better price tag and better features at the base trim level. You may find that the value of the Equinox is preferred across all trims when you make a side-by-side comparison.

As important as it is to read about differences between the Equinox and the Terrain, it is crucial to test drive both models before finalizing your purchase plans. Our dealership is your preferred source for more information about the trim levels, and we can also get you behind the wheel of several trims to give you a first-hand experience.
