Chevrolet Equinox Overview

The Equinox and its GMC Terrain twin have a taut yet supple and controlled ride, with responsive and secure handling. The 3.6-liter V6 and more fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine feel sluggish. The transmission blunts the performance of the V6, yet it still returns mediocre gas mileage. Interior components look snazzy but feel cheap. Reliability has been above average, but the Equinox scores too low to be recommended. The 2016 models get a smattering of cosmetic updates and additional advanced safety features, including available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, which join the forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems.
