Overview

If you prefer flexibility in configuring your crossover SUV, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is worth a second look. Starting at $24,795 (all prices include a $995 destination charge) and offered in four trim levels, the Chevrolet Equinox offers comfortable seating for five and can be configured in front- or all-wheel drive. With three engines and two transmissions available, consumers can create an Equinox that fits their style, taste, and budget.

What's New for 2019

The Equinox received a fresh interior and exterior upgrade last year. As such, the 2019 Equinox remains mainly unchanged. One minor change is an upgrade to infotainment system’s software and an available HD rearview camera.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Equinox

Like most General Motors' brands, the Chevy Equinox has a GM counterpart, the GMC Terrain. However, the Equinox stands slightly taller and has different powerplant configurations. The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is offered to consumers in four trims: L (which is only offered as a custom-ordered edition), LS, LT, and Premier. The LS, LT, and Premier models can be configured with all-wheel drive for an additional $1,700.

The stock engine offered in all trims is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. It's paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission. A 2.0-liter engine is available on LT and Premier trims which belts out 252 ponies and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The final powerplant is a fuel-sipping 1.6-liter turbodiesel that delivers 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. The diesel is offered with the LT and Premier and is paired with the six-speed automatic transmission.

The 1.5-liter engine returns an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 combined in FWD configuration and 25/30/27 mpg (city/highway/combined) with AWD. The 2.0-liter carries ratings of 22/29/25 mpg with FWD and 22/28/24 with AWD, while those numbers climb to 28/39/32 (FWD) and 28/38/32 (AWD) with the diesel.

Chevrolet Equinox

L

The base L is a front-wheel-drive only Equinox that comes well equipped and starts at $24,795. The L rides on 17-inch wheels, comes with automatic headlights, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition system, LED daytime running lights, a driver information display, heated mirrors, and height-adjustable front seats. A seven-inch infotainment touchscreen comes with WiFi, 4G LTE connectivity, and a six-speaker audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The L also includes two USB connectivity ports in the front, and two USB charging ports in the rear. The L is a built-to-order trim, so make sure to inquire with dealerships about available upgrades and packages.

Chevrolet Equinox

LS

For consumers looking to purchase an Equinox at dealerships “as is”, the LS is essentially the starting point. The LS trim starts $26,795 and comes standard with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic transmission. The LS features all the standard items included in the base L and adds rear floor mats, a spare tire, and mobile flat tire jack. There are nine exterior colors to choose from, and three premium exterior colors that will cost an extra $395: Ivy Metallic, Kinetic Blue Metallic, and Orange Burst Metallic. The LS is the first to offer convenience packages, including an LS Convenience Package ($685) that adds tinted rear glass, power driver lumbar control, and an eight-way power driver seat. The LS can also be spiced up with a $795 Chrome Package and $645 Blackout Package.

LT

The step-up in class to the LT begins to upgrade technology and ups the starting price to $28,095 with the 1.5-liter engine and front-wheel drive. The LT is the first trim available the 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter turbodiesel. Adding either engine requires converting to all-wheel drive. An upgrade to the 2.0-liter engine brings the starting price to $32,395, while the LT with the diesel starts at $32,195. The LT adds a bunch of goodies including xenon headlights, a sunroof, satellite radio, auxiliary rear-seat release levers, and the items listed in the LS Convenience Package.

Consumers can opt for a few upgraded packages including the Lights and Bright Package ($3,240) that adds 19-inch wheels, navigation, LED taillights and headlights, and chrome exterior trim enhancements. The Sun and Navigation Package ($2,390) loads extra USB data ports, an upgraded eight-inch infotainment center with navigation, and a panoramic power sunroof. The Confidence and Convenience Package ($1,945) includes a remote starting system, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, dual-zone climate control, heated driver and passenger seats, and heated power exterior mirrors with turn signal indicators. Cajun Red Tintcoat is added to the premium paint choices at $395 as is a $995 Iridescent Peral Tricoat.

Premier

The range-topper 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is the Premier, which starts at $31,995 with the 1.5-liter engine, $36,595 with the 2.0-liter, and $35,995 with the 1.6-liter diesel. The Premier includes each of the items listed in the LT packages (except for the panoramic sunroof and navigation system), rides on standard 18-inch alloy wheels, and includes a hands-free liftgate, wireless device charging, LED headlights and taillights, and leather upholstery. When upgrading to the 2.0-liter engine, Premier owners also gain 19-inch wheels.

Like the LT, there are three notable package options. The Sun, Sound, and Navigation Package ($3,320) adds the power sunroof, all-season tires, a Bose premium seven-speaker audio system, navigation, and HD Radio. A Style and Go Package ($1,630) adds machined aluminum wheels, a rear bumper protector, and molded assist steps. The Confidence and Convenience II Package ($2,145) adds forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox offers a total of eight possible trim configurations and can be confusing to assemble. However, for the money, the LT trim offers consumers a lot of value and the choice to upgrade engines.

The compact crossover segment is massive and showing almost no signs of slowing as the public continues to gobble up these small people-haulers at an extreme rate. To keep pace with the growing segment, the Chevy Equinox underwent a full redesign in 2018, and the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox remains mostly the same. With stalwarts like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 on the prowl, does the sharp 2019 Chevrolet Equinox stand a chance? Continue reading to find out.

Best Value

With the L trim being a special-order model and the LS offering little in the way of creature comforts, the LT seems the best path for the money. It boasts a few extra goodies above the standard level, like HID headlights, a power driver’s seat, heated mirrors, and more, making it a strong value in its class. Plus, if you want more options, the LT is the entryway into popular packages like the Confidence & Convenience Package.

  • Model: 2019 Chevrolet Equinox LT
  • Engine: 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder
  • Output: 170 hp / 203 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Six-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain: Front-wheel drive
  • Fuel Economy: 26 City / 32 Hwy
  • Options: Confidence & Convenience Package ($1,945, rear park assist, power liftgate, lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, heated front seats, universal home remote, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, dual-zone climate control)
  • Base Price: $28,095 (including a $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price: $30,040

Performance

The 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is adequate for the average buyer, but the model really comes alive with the 252-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. You can also opt for the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine for up to 32 miles per gallon combined fuel economy, according to the EPA.

The entire Equinox lineup delivers a well-sorted ride and the steering system is very predictable. While the 2019 Equinox handles well for its class, opting for the 2.0-liter engine doesn't boost its curve-hugging abilities and its nine-speed automatic transmission seems confused at times. Plus, the optional diesel engine, while full of torque, can only tow up tow 1,500 pounds to the 2.0-liter-equipped Equinox’s 3,500 pounds.

Style

The 2019 Chevy Equinox pleases the eye from most angles, and its interior is curvy and intuitively laid out. While the front of the Equinox looks sleek and stylish, the upright rear end gives it almost a minivan appearance. Also, there's no point where the Equinox looks and feels like a more upscale vehicle.

Wide front and rear doors provide easy access to this pleasant cabin. Though we miss the sliding second row from the previous generation, the rear seat is plenty roomy with 39.7 inches of leg room and room for three people. Also, cargo room remains one of the Equinox’s strong points at 29.9 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 63.5 cubes with the seats folded.

The Best and Worst Things

One of the Equinox’s strongest points is its array of engines that fit just about every need. Want to save cash? Get the base engine. Want peppiness? Get the optional 2.0-liter. Want to go green? Get the diesel.

The worst thing about the 2019 Equinox is the trim-level positioning, especially the base L trim. Why bother offering this base trim level at all if buyers cannot walk into a dealership and buy it? As it stands today, buyer have to special order the L trim and wait for it to arrive.

Right For? Wrong For?

The 2019 Chevy Equinox is the perfect crossover for the growing family who'll soon have to haul around growing kids and all their things. It nails both with a roomy rear seat and plenty of cargo room.

Anyone looking for anything beyond just a mass-produced crossover will be saddened to find there's nothing overly special about the 2.0-liter-equipped model. It’s equally disappointing there's no real upscale version of the Equinox.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is a strong competitor in a crowded class that's home to top sellers like the CR-V and RAV4. Though it cannot beat its top-ranked competitors across the board, the Equinox offers a few things its competitors cannot, which can sway buyers its way.
