#5. If you’re neutral on styling and can go without a few features, consider the less expensive 2010 Chevrolet Equinox.
From a chassis, powertrain, and drivetrain perspective, the GMC Terrain and redesigned 2010 Chevrolet Equinox are identical, yet unlike past efforts at differentiating what are essentially twin vehicles, styling differences go beyond tweaked headlights and a few badges. In fact, these two crossovers share a roof panel and little else. The Terrain’s appearance is meant to impart the more rugged, upscale image associated with the GMC brand, deserved or not. Buyers choosing the Terrain over the Equinox will pay a premium of about $1,800, and in return get a few added standard features like the interior rearview camera, a power driver’s seat, and foglights. Yup, that’s about it.
