    Putting all the nonsense aside and just getting to the facts, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox starts at $23,580 and is at the top of its class. Hardly any other SUV matches its seamlessly balanced combination of power, intelligence, size, fuel efficiency, and affordability. Even though the 2018 GMC Terrain is not far behind and is a part of Chevrolet’s brother manufacturer, it falls short on a few of these stats.
    It is truly a challenge to compare these two highly capable SUVs, but that just means that even the smallest detail will count. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is more affordable in starting price by over $1,000 and just a bit larger in size, giving it just a gentle push ahead.
