The Chevrolet Equinox should be on your list if you’re searching for a compact SUV with versatility, style, and technology. Chevrolet makes the Equinox in four trim levels plus three special editions with unique styles. Prices range from $26,600-$31,800, making the Equinox a top contender in a crowded segment.
Chevrolet gave the third-generation Equinox a facelift in 2022, resulting in an appealing modern exterior. Chevrolet has added three new exterior paint options and Sport, Red Line, and Midnight appearance packages. The lower trims have 17-inch aluminum wheels, and the top-tier Premier model has 18-inch alloys.
However, the Equinox RS trim rolls on 19-inch wheels wrapped in all-weather black wall tires. In addition, the RS has a signature grille, black roof rails, and gloss black exterior accents that add curb appeal. LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights help you see and be seen.
The Midnight Special Edition offers blacked-out exterior treatments to the grille, side mirrors, and wheels. The Red Line Special Edition delivers similar black exterior flourishes with an added touch of red to the bow tie emblems and wheels.
Under the hood, you have a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with direct injection and variable valve timing technology. Chevrolet paired this engine with a six-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting up and down the power band.
This powertrain puts out 175 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the Equinox can tow up to 1,500 pounds with optional towing equipment.
The turbo four-cylinder provides you with spirited driving without sacrificing economy. The Equinox gets a 24 mpg rating in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. Chevrolet uses a capable front-wheel-drive platform standard on every trim. However, you can upgrade to an all-wheel drive for enhanced traction and control over various surfaces and weather conditions.
The Equinox boasts one of the most spacious interiors in its class. Premium cloth upholstery comes standard on the lower trims, while the top-of-the-range Premier offers leather seating with heating.
A standard 7-inch touch screen powered by the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System operates your infotainment in the lower trims. The Premier trim has an 8-inch touch screen and a wireless charging pad on the LT and RS models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, and you can opt for Amazon Alexa and a Wi-Fi hotspot to amplify your tech experience.
Every Equinox comes equipped with Chevy Safety Assist, a suite of driver-assist technology to enhance your Richmond commute and keep you safe. The suite includes a forward collision alert that scans ahead for obstacles and alerts you to potential hazards. In addition, this system works with automatic emergency braking, which activates if you react slowly to the other alerts.
Lane-keep assist and lane departure warning systems use sensors that track your Equinox while traveling within marked lanes. If these systems detect an unintentional drift, they alert you with visual and audio cues. In certain situations, these systems can provide gentle steering correction to help keep you in your lane.
