2 of 11

Engine

Winner: Tie

The 2017 GMC Terrain and 2017 Chevrolet Equinox have the same powertrain offerings. Reviewers say the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, is underpowered and recommend upgrading.

The available 3.6-liter V6 engine is mated to the same automatic transmission and offers a more powerful experience behind the wheel. The 2.4-liter engine delivers 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. The V6 engine yields 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque, though some drivers might be left wishing there was more.

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine can tow up to 1,500 pounds and the 3.6-liter V6 engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
