Read more to learn how both SUVs face off against each other in this detailed Chevy Equinox vs. GMC Acadia comparison.

Chevy Equinox vs GMC Acadia Fuel Efficiency

Both the Equinox and the Acadia boast powertrains that are efficient for their class. Looking at the Acadia, we find a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that gives us an EPA-estimated 21 city/26 highway MPG.

As we move over to the Chevy Equinox, though, we find a standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This powertrain, however, is able to give us an EPA-estimated 26 city/28 highway MPG. When you want to enjoy every gallon to the fullest, this vehicle will provide just what you need.

Available Drivetrains

When it comes to achieving a fun acceleration, it’s not just about the engine: the drivetrain plays a big role as well. Inside both SUVs, you’ll find a powerful drivetrain bringing you smooth shifting without missing a beat.

As we explore the GMC Acadia, we find that this vehicle only offers a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain will provide drivers with a seamless shifting experience as you accelerate; however, drivers may find that the shift points are distant from each other at times.

For the 2019 Chevy Equinox, we find that this vehicle offers an available 9-speed automatic transmission. Drivers who make use of this transmission will enjoy an excellent distribution of shift points, offering effortless acceleration.

Interior Design

The interior of any vehicle is important. It not only helps you feel stylish but comfortable as well. Inside the GMC Acadia, we have two available monochromatic interiors: Jet Black and Cocoa Light Ash Gray. While the interior is comfortable, the monochromatic design lacks some flair.

For the Chevy Equinox, we have only one interior style: a brown and black trim throughout the cabin. The use of color helps the cabin pop, and the warm pallet choice does an excellent job at making this cabin feel much more comfortable as well as stylish.

Exterior Design

Moving out of the cabin, we find that these SUVs also boast some attractive body styling. The GMC presents a bold look with a brawny front end and a muscular frame. This vehicle is designed to look strong without much of a sculpted design. We also have 10 available paint options, including Red Quartz Tintcoat, White Frost Tricoat, and Blue Steel Metallic.

As for the Equinox, this car boasts a flowing design across the body that helps create an exterior sense of speed. Plus, with the aggressive-looking grille and unique tire rim design, you’re sure to stand out on the road. This SUV offers 13 available paint colors, including Ivy Metallic, Orange Burst Metallic, and Kinetic Blue Metallic.

Chevy Equinox vs GMC Acadia: Which Vehicle Suits You?

While both the 2019 Equinox and the 2019 Acadia offer excellent features, only the Equinox stands out with excellent fuel economy and a bold style that announces itself on the street. Fortunately, Baierl Chevrolet is eager to show Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township drivers the capabilities of this SUV.
