2018 GMC Terrain Vs Chevy Equinox 2018. The savvy consumer—that’s you—knows that the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and 2018 GMC Terrain are essentially the same vehicle under their sheet metal. Both are available with a trio of 4-cylinder engines, including a high-mpg turbodiesel, and they can both be ordered with front- or all-wheel drive. Although they have many similarities, they’re unique on the road and each has its own value story to tell. We lean toward the Terrain, which justifies its modest price hike with more sound deadening and better interior materials, even if its quirky shift buttons and poor over-the-shoulder visibility are demerits. Both crossovers seat five and are new for the 2018 model year and start around $25,000. The 2018 Equinox and 2018 Terrain are available in four trim levels—L, LS, LT, and Premier for the Chevy and SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali for the GMC. Dollar for dollar, the Terrain generally runs between $500 and $2,000 more than the Equinox, so shop carefully. You’ll find far more expressive styling on the Terrain with its gaping maw up front and “floating” rearmost roof pillar visible from the side and the rear. It’s polarizing, but GMC deserves credit for breaking out of the blocky approach seen on the last Terrain. The Equinox, meanwhile, is evolutionary, with only a more pinched front fascia and van-like taillights separating it from the outgoing model. Neither crossover’s base trim level is available with all-wheel drive, however, so snow-belters will find another big disparity. An Equinox LS with all-wheel drive runs a hair over $28,000, while a Terrain SLE sets back buyers nearly $31,000. Short of a leather-wrapped steering wheel on the Terrain SLE, there’s not much else you’re missing. One note: GMC charges $395 for most paint colors other than white, while Chevy only levies an extra charge for a few hues. If leather seats are on your must-have list, the tables turn. A Terrain SLT with all-wheel drive comes standard with leather, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated front seats for about $34,500. To get the same on an Equinox, you’ll have to step up to the Premier trim level with its power tailgate and rear cross-traffic alerts for around $1,000 more. In our eyes, safety is also a major selling point. The least expensive Equinox with automatic emergency braking is about $1,300 less than an equivalent Terrain. Make sure to specify the Driver Alert Package II on either crossover to get the most advanced safety tech—something rivals like Toyota, Honda, Subaru, and Mazda make available at a much lower price point. Finally, a loaded Terrain Denali lists for more than $44,000. It’s equipped like a luxury crossover, but it’s also priced like one. The sensible choice here is a modestly equipped 2018 GMC Terrain with either turbo-4 gas engine. Pop for the Driver Alert Package II, but be careful digging too much deeper into the options list and you may want to look at some rivals, too. 2018 GMC Terrain Vs Chevy Equinox 2018.
