Terrain vs. Equinox: Which Redesigned GM Compact SUV Is Best for You?

It’s no secret that manufacturers of different brands build vehicles that are almost identical, but with different badges. That’s the case with the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and 2018 GMC Terrain. These two compact SUVs share many mechanical components and technologies, and they both received major redesigns for the new model year.

But there are differences, and we’re here to tease those out and find out if one of these SUVs is better than the other. It’s worth noting that the GMC brand is intended to be the upscale truck and SUV brand, while Chevy is the brand with broader appeal.

We’ll use the scores from our compact SUV rankings to compare these two models in the categories that shoppers care about most. Keep in mind that our rankings change as new information comes in, and that will be particularly true for this comparison as new features and scores become available later in the year. This head-to-head comparison was completed with the most up-to-date information available for these new models.
