, Senior Automotive Editor -

The Chevrolet Equinox, a compact crossover SUV that’s similar to the GMC Terrain, debuted in 2005. Built in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, the Equinox has been powered by a variety of 4- and 6-cylinder engines.

The first generation had lots of usable space, but wasn’t as refined as much of its competition. A refreshed second generation, launched in 2010, fixed many of the earlier model’s problems. The availability of a direct injection 3.6-liter V6 for 2013 makes the Equinox even quicker.

Chevrolet Equinox Generations

2010 - 2014 Chevrolet Equinox

Major changes included:

For its second generation, the Equinox gained sharper styling and a quieter, more refined interior. Always roomy for a compact crossover, the Chevy now felt classier and more substantial. The base V6 was dropped in favor of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that was more efficient and just as powerful. A 3-liter V6 with 264 horsepower was optional until 2013, when it was replaced by a direct-injected 3.6-liter with 301 horsepower for class-leading acceleration.

2005 - 2009 Chevrolet Equinox

Major changes included:

The original Equinox drew praise for its spacious and family-friendly interior. The rear seat slid fore and aft just like the ones in front, and the adjustable cargo-area shelf made for a fine tailgating table. With 69 cubic feet of cargo space, the Equinox actually held a bit more than it does today. Performance was nothing special in the base model, but the Sport version carried a more powerful V6 and sport-tuned suspension for lively operation.
