Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet Equinox 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 LT 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The new Equinox has tidier dimensions, bringing it in line with the small-SUV segment, but it's still roomy, and packs the latest infotainment and safety technology. Power comes from a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder in most versions, but this engine doesn't make the Equinox particularly swift. The uplevel engine is a 252-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder mated to a nine-speed automatic, and a diesel engine is also available. Ride an handling are quite accomplished. The cabin is quiet and the controls are straightforward and easy to use, including the MyLink infotainment system. It's too bad that the interior is a bit drab. Forward-collision warning with low-speed automatic braking, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert are available.

2010 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Equinox 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 LT
The redesigned 2010 model, which offers four-cylinder and V6 engines, is light years better than its predecessor. It still has a roomy rear seat, but the interior is much nicer. The ride is taut, yet supple and controlled. Handling is responsive and secure. But fuel economy still falls short of the best small SUVs. We recommend skipping the base Equinox and jumping right to an LT, which comes with a power driver's seat. While the four-cylinder engine manages to get the job done, the V6 is more enjoyable. The 2013 models brought a much quicker optional 3.6-liter V6, as well as a revised interior with new infotainment technology. WiFi debuted in 2015. For 2016, Equinox got a smattering of cosmetic updates and advanced safety features, including available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, which join forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems. Also, a rear-view camera became standard on all trim lines.

Chevrolet Equinox 2009 Trim Shown: 2009 Sport Utility
The first-generation Chevrolet Equinox is a mediocre SUV. While it has a roomy rear seat, the interior is crafted of subpar materials. The old-tech 185-hp, 3.4-liter V6 lacks refinement and returns poor fuel economy. A tip-up onto two wheels in the government rollover test was another negative until electronic stability control became standard in 2007. Ride and interior noise are improved in 2007 models, though handling remains clumsy, even with electronic stability control. The body also leans a lot in turns. Curtain airbags were made standard for 2009 (they were previously an option).
