If you’ve been shopping for a 2019 GMC Terrain, you may want to compare it with the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox. These sister compact crossovers bring a lot to the table, combining exceptional performance, great fuel economy, the latest technology features and outstanding amenities. We’ll take a look at the difference between the Terrain and Equinox, so as a Seaside Chevrolet shopper you can make the best decision and see which model is right for you.
Both the 2019 GMC Terrain and the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox are available with four trim levels. The Terrain comes in SL, SLE, SLT and Denali trims, while the Equinox is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier. But most Seaside Chevrolet shoppers will choose to skip the Equinox’s L trim, as it’s only available as a special order and buyers will have to wait while it’s being assembled. So, while the Equinox technically comes in four trim levels, for all intents and purposes, there are only three trims that most buyers would consider.
The 2019 Terrain and the 2019 Equinox have a similar Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Terrain starts at $25,000, while the Equinox starts at $23,800.
Safety is an important factor when considering a new vehicle purchase. Both the GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox keep passengers safe with standard airbags and a rearview camera. Options include rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning. An optional Safety Alert Seat vibrates to warn the driver of a hazardous situation.
Both the 2019 GMC Terrain and 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and practical and capable SUVs. Ultimately, which one you prefer comes down to personal preference, but the Terrain can be outfitted with more luxuries and styling options, giving it a slight edge against the Equinox.
