An SUV is a great ride through an array of driving conditions and can safely and soundly get you and your family where you need to go. When searching for a vehicle to suit your lifestyle, you’ll be presented with many models to consider. Luckily, our team at Baierl Chevrolet wants to help you find the best one for you.

Therefore, we crafted this comparison of the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain for our friends in Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township. Read on to see what makes each of these cars unique! Then, reach out to a member of our team if you have any additional questions or would like to schedule a test drive.



At first glance, you may notice the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain are very similar. Each comes standard with a 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine boasting high efficiency to maximize your time on the road. An available 252-horsepower motor is also available in these SUVs, invigorating all your daily drivers.

Technology can provide you with a more engaging ride when running errands around town or taking a thrilling weekend getaway. When it comes to entertainment systems, these SUVs are, once again, evenly matched.

Standard 7-inch displays come packed with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration, which seamlessly pairs your compatible smartphone with your system to gain access to a range of applications. From your customized music library and favorite podcasts to your text messages, you can access it all on your display.

Blast your tunes or catch up on the next chapter in your audiobook—the possibilities are endless with this standard smartphone integration. Companion applications are also available on the Equinox and Terrain, keeping you connected to your SUV no matter where the road takes you.

With similar powertrains and interior amenities, you may be wondering what the difference is between the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain may be. The answer lies in the fine details, with small specifics amplifying your ride to help you take everyday drives to the next level.



Style is an important aspect to consider when you’re searching for your next car. Your vehicle is an extension of yourself and reflects how you present yourself to the world. A refined SUV can help you make yourself known in the carpool lane when picking up your children from school or when cruising around the freeway on the way to your next weekend escape. So, let’s kick off our 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain comparison by looking at their exterior appearances.

First up is the Equinox, which boasts a clean appearance with bold, flowing lines. Plus, 19-inch wheels are available to make a statement wherever the road takes you and complement the high stance of this daring ride. Complete this head-turning construction with your choice of 10 exterior colors, such as Cayenne Orange Metallic and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat.

The Terrain also has a unique style with an aggressive grille and available 19-inch wheels to finish off its commanding presence. However, if you’re looking for more standout colors, you may be interested in the Equinox since the Terrain only had nine color options.


Nothing is more important than your safety, so the 2020 Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain comes standard with the following technologies to help keep you alert and protected on the ever-changing road:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking: This system detects when you’re traveling too close to the vehicle ahead of you. If necessary, it automatically applies the brakes to prevent or lessen the impact of a frontal collision.
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: This feature warns you of unintentional lane drifting and, if necessary, provides gentle steering corrections to keep you firmly on track.
  • Teen Driver: This unique system allows you to customize drive settings to protect your new driver. It provides you with a progress report of their performance to help them make any necessary corrections.

Additionally, these vehicles offer available state-of-the-art systems to upgrade your protection further. Take, for example, Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It detects when other vehicles are approaching either of your side blind zones when backing out of busy parking lot, so you can avoid impact with another vehicle. Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert is also available to detect cars traveling in your blind spot when traversing the open road, so you know when it’s safe to make a lane change.

One feature exclusively found in the Equinox, though, is the Rear Seat Reminder. If an object is detected in your back seat, this system will alert you, so you don’t have to worry about leaving any precious items behind. Unfortunately, the Terrain doesn’t come armed with this convenience feature.
