Expert Rating

2.75 (Fair)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Chevrolet Equinox

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 7, 2019
  • 2020 Equinox supplies building; 2019s sold out
  • New 15% MSRP discount
  • Lease a 2020 from $239 for 39 months
  • Get 0% APR for 72 months + $750 bonus

Off to a great start:

The carryover 2020 Equinox continues arriving at dealers and already carries excellent factory incentives. The diesel model has been pruned from the lineup.

The mid-range LT is easiest to find and generally carries the best pricing. The base LS isn't quite so common and already carries a lower price, so don't expect as much room for dealing. The entry-level L model isn't likely to be discounted at all and is excluded from most factory incentives.

Current offers are available on a national basis and will expire December 2, 2019 unless otherwise noted. It's possible Chevy will enhance incentives for Black Friday weekend.

Take 15% off:

Chevy now offers 15% off the MSRP of 2020 Equinox models in stock.

That translates into hefty cash off. This discount on the top-shelf premiere, for example, works out to $6,174.

Look into a lease:

The initial lease offer on the 2020 Equinox LT is $239 for 39 months (10,000 miles a year) with $2,929 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost is $314, a very good value for this price class.

0% + cash:

Instead of the other offers, you can now get 0% financing for 72 months on the 2019 Equinox. The deal comes with $750 bonus cash.

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is back with no major changes. The most notable development is that the 1.6-liter diesel engine has been dropped due to low demand. The lack of changes also means that many advanced safety features still aren't widely available.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet offers four trims for the Equinox: L, LS, LT, and Premier. Pricing starts at $24,995 including destination for the L and goes up to $32,595 for the Premier.

Engine Choices

With the diesel engine deleted from the lineup, there are now only two engine choices. The base 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor offers good fuel economy, while the 2.0-liter turbo-four brings welcome power upgrades.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueMax TowingFuel Economy (Combined)
1.5L Turbo-4170 hp203 lb-ft1,500 lbs28 mpg
2.0L Turbo-4252 hp260 lb-ft3,500 lbs25 mpg

The larger engine costs $2,500 on the LT and $2,700 on the Premier. The 1.5-liter engine retains Chevy's six-speed automatic transmission, while the larger sibling utilizes a nine-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available for $1,600 on every Equinox except the L.

Passenger & Cargo Capacity

The Equinox seats five and offers 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. If the second row is folded, the Equinox houses 63.9 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

Safety Features

Every Equinox automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. Also standard are lane keeping assist and lane departure warning, which come in handy on long freeway drives.

Although the LT trim brings standard HID headlights, there isn't much in the way of safety upgrades until the Premier. The range-topping trim gets LED headlights and taillights, blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist. Unfortunately, adaptive cruise control is only available on the Premier model, and even there it's part of a $1,650 package.

The 2020 model hasn't been tested by the IIHS or NHTSA yet, but expect it to keep its five-star overall safety rating from last year.

Connectivity

The Equinox features a 7-inch infotainment screen with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. A 3.5-inch driver information display is also standard, but a 4.2-inch color version takes over on the LT and up. The LT and higher also get SiriusXM satellite radio, while the Premier trim gets an 8-inch color touchscreen with navigation and wireless charging.

L - From $24,995

The Equinox L is unlikely to be found on dealer lots, as it's special order only and designed for fleet use. As such, it's also the most spartan trim with cloth upholstery, two paint choices, and halogen headlights. Riding on 17-inch aluminum wheels, the L does offer keyless entry, keyless start, and heated outside mirrors.

LS - From $27,495

The LS is the true base model of the lineup, but it's specification is almost identical to the L despite the $2,500 price premium. The only things new to the lineup are a spare tire and carpeted rear floor mats.

Basically, you're paying for the privilege of being able to select all-wheel drive, more exterior colors, and standalone options and packages. Our favorite is the LS Convenience Package ($685) that adds an eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar support and deep-tinted rear glass.

LT - From $28,695

The Equinox LT is the first trim where the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine becomes available. It also gets the 4.2-inch driver information display and an eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar control.

Shoppers can unlock the Equinox's full array of safety features with the Confidence and Convenience Package ($2,045). It brings blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist alongside creature comforts like remote start and heated front seats.

Those looking to trick their Equinox out in black will want the Midnight Edition Package ($2,230), while the 8-inch touchscreen with navigation requires the Infotainment Package ($745).

Premier - From $32,595

The Premier trim gets a wealth of extra safety, technology, and comfort features over the LT. Additionally, the Equinox Premier is bolstered by chrome exterior touches, a hands-free gesture liftgate, and heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals.

The cabin gains the 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, wireless charging, and an HD rearview camera. The driver and passengers can enjoy perforated leather seating, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Audiophiles should consider the Infotainment II Package ($1,125), which adds a seven-speaker Bose audio system and HD radio.

CarsDirect Tip

Choosing a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox LT provides a full choice of engine and drivetrain combinations, while the Confidence and Convenience Package justifies its cost with useful safety and comfort features.
