2021 Chevrolet Equinox Review

Want a compact SUV that can do it all? The Chevrolet Equinox carries up to five people and their gear keeps everyone connected and protected—and it won’t empty your bank account when you drive it. Choose from four trims: L LS LT and the top-of-the line Premier. Two turbocharged engines are available including a two-liter turbocharged gas engine that can tow up to 3 500 pounds. Add available switchable all-wheel-drive and this small SUV gets things done. The 60/40-split rear seat folds flat so the cargo area is completely useable. And huge—over 63 cubic feet of huge. And accessible especially with the available hands-free power liftgate. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility brings your smartphone to the Chevrolet Infotainment Three System touchscreen display and an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot supports up to seven devices. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an Equinox that’s all yours. The Chevrolet Equinox. Everything you need to do everything you want.
The Chevrolet Equinox is loaded with technology. Chevrolet Infotainment Three System is standard equipment on every Equinox. It includes a touchscreen display Bluetooth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and an available 4G LTE built-in WiFi hotspot. Available navigation comes with an eight-inch-diagonal color touchscreen. Can’t remember if you locked the doors of your Equinox? No problem. Download the myChevrolet Mobile App and you can lock the doors from an airplane remote-start the engine from your kitchen set the climate control from your office and more. The Chevrolet Equinox. It’s the smarter choice.
With its standard Driver Confidence Package your Chevrolet Equinox can help you detect and avoid trouble. Something catches your attention and you don’t see the car stopping in front of you. But Automatic Emergency Braking does and applies the brakes to help reduce or avoid the severity of impact. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning lets you know when you’re drifting out of your lane—and can even help steer you back where you belong. The Chevy Equinox. It’s the smarter choice.
With your choice of two turbocharged engines and front- or available all-wheel drive there’s a Chevrolet Equinox that’s sure to hit your sweet spot. The standard 1.5-liter gas engine delivers 170 horsepower and offers up to an EPA-estimated 31 miles to the gallon and the available two-liter is good for 252 horsepower and can tow up to 3 500 pounds. Add available Switchable All-Wheel Drive and your Equinox will make you think CUV stands for Capable Utility Vehicle. The Chevrolet Equinox. It’s the smarter choice.
