Chevrolet Equinox Overview

The Equinox and its GMC Terrain twin straddle the small and midsized SUV categories. They 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. Handling is sound, if unexceptional, and the ride is supple and controlled. Interior components look snazzy but feel cheap. High-trim LTZ models bring beneficial forward-collision and lane-departure warning safety systems but lack common comfort features such as a dual-zone climate system. Reliability has been above average, but the Equinox scores too low to be recommended. A freshened Equinox with more safety features will debut this fall.
