Chevrolet's long-running compact crossover, Equinox is larger and heavier than most competitors and specializes in smooth, quiet running. Add the available V6 engine and a few upgrades, and you might find the Equinox to be a solid alternative to full-size family vehicles costing thousands more.
What's New for 2015
The Equinox gets a built-in WiFi hotspot, but is otherwise unchanged.
Choosing your Chevrolet Equinox
The Equinox offers a relaxing five-passenger interior with a rear seat that slides and reclines. Ride quality is a definite strong suit, as is the hushed cabin environment. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is good for 182 horsepower. The optional 3.6-liter V6 provides a massive boost to 301 horsepower and allows the Equinox to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive can be added to any model.
Like most Chevy models, the Equinox is offered in four trim levels: the budget-friendly LS, popularly equipped 1LT and 2LT, and swanky LTZ:
Most families go for the LT, which provides a healthy load of equipment at a still-comfortable price. But if you want some extras, moving up to the fully loaded LTZ makes more sense than adding options to the standard LT.
