2016 Chevy Equinox vs. 2016 Nissan Rogue
Without a question, the automotive class that has made the greatest gains in recent years is the crossover SUV segment. What was once the domain of uninspiring, unimaginative models that were all frustratingly similar has expanded to include some outstanding outliers, two of which are shown here. The 2016 Chevy Equinox and 2016 Nissan Rogue are among the leaders in the segment for a number of reasons, but how do they compare to one another when compared head to head?
It’s important first to note one basic truth about these two models: if you’d like a V6 engine option, then the Equinox is your only choice. However, each employs a standard four-cylinder engine, each of which offers agile output for its size. Yet, the Equinox returns a greater amount of horsepower than its Nissan counterpart, while even its edge in standard towing -- 1,500 pounds, compared to just 1,000 for the Rogue -- is worth noting. In addition to the available V6 upgrade, the Equinox is also the lone model shown here to offer a built-in 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, giving Chevy drivers the edge in technology as well.
