    Hate the styling, they shrunk it, the seat do not move aft, forward as they used to and I don't like it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder 🙂

  2. Henry Zhang

    Like always, lack of detail design. Put too much focus on exterior.

  3. Michael Earll

    I was able to build a GMC Terrain on the GMC website, and that thing is topping at $43K.

    The back looks like a minivan

    I have a 2014 Equinox LT V6 and haven't had any issues with it — this looks way more refined than the last generation was, but I feel it's a tad overpriced at the higher trim levels. After reading some of these comments, I guess that makes me a boring, soulless, egotistical maniac who wants to kill his family in the middle of the night. Lol oh well…get a life, people.

    Make a video on the 2018 Honda Odessy plz

    I should've waited for this version. I bout the 2017 LT model and it doesn't have Android / Apple CarPlay support which they specifically told me at the factory they did.

    My parents just bought the top of the line model. We live in a rural area, and after 4 years of driving an hour to the VW dealer with our TDI, post buyout we were wanting something closer to home. That meant FCA, Ford, or GM. Were personal not FCA fans, so we didn't really look there. We tried Forda and Lincolns, but my Dad at 6'6" just didn't fit well at all. The 2018 equinox felt way bigger than the escape, and way bigger than the mazda we happened to try as well. Size wise, the equinox feels at par with the Ford Edge, and much nicer inside and way more efficient. Needless to say, I think the equinox was a great car for us. Fuel efficient, comfortable, loaded with features (Pano roof, cooled seats, 360 camera, apple carplay, lane keep assist, though no adaptive cruise… 😒) relatively competitive price wise, and styling/fit and finish that I was ready to hate from the pictures but actually really liked on person.

    This is what happens when the government owns a car company.. Rental car at best

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about hard plastic?

    Also boo no v6 and yay oh no Ross and Carrie.

  12. Richi Camacho

    Do yourself a favor and get yourself a Toyota, Honda, or Mazda. I just bought myself a RAV4 SE but before I test drove a lot of cars. Those three makers were the best but my RAV4 was the winner.

  13. Matt Olfson

    One of the best SUV picks out there? Question: Can it blast through a bank or berm of snow nearly as well as a Subaru Forester can? I ask because for all the talk of performance in the review, not a single word was dedicated to how well the AWD works. If I just wanted a sunny-day FWD hauler, I'd get a minivan.

  14. Frank Burns

    "The rear seats do recline…" <demonstrates how absurd the concept of reclining has become.> Yeah, and modern cars have "tilt" wheels, too.

  15. Joshua Johnson

    Bias to Honda KBB?

  16. Eddie Baba

    Certainly better than the outgoing car but not up to standards set by competition. Pros: good ride and quiet cabin. Cons: packaging , engine start/stop (I hate that thing) that you can't turn off and still won't get you superior mpg, high price, no V6! Sorry but I will pass.

  17. Saeed Kazemi

    Damn, where do you get these T-shirts! Loved it! 😛

  18. Benjamin Francis

    Coming soon to a rental car lot near you!

  19. sportsMike87

    Still looks like a rental car

  20. HW2800

    GM cars have no "OFF" button for start/stop! LOL!
