I have both a gen2, 2016, LTZ/AWD 3.6; and a gen3, 2019 LT/FWD 2.0 Redline.
The 2016 is more comfortable; rides better, seats are more comfortable, physically larger overall and the 3.6 has a more linear power output but is a little thirsty on fuel.
The 2019 is more sporty, meaning handles better, rides more firmly, seats are a tighter fit and the 2.0 engine has what I describe as explosive power output. It's better on fuel by about 5 mpg. (between my two vehicles)
My 2016 is my good/road-trip vehicle.
My 2019 is a daily driver.
If you like your current vehicle; as others have mentioned, the Acadia is a closer match than the new gen3 Equinox/Terrain. What is most noticeable is ride quality; the gen3 is borderline harsh in comparison.
