What To Expect

The Chevrolet Equinox received a full redesign for 2025. Coming off of a recent redesign, we expect the 2026 Chevrolet Equinox to be a carryover model. Here’s what we expect to see with the 2026 Equinox.

As a carryover model, the 2026 Chevrolet Equinox should have the same exterior design as the current model that’s on sale. The Equinox features a sharp exterior design with a split grille design, slim daytime running lights, and headlights that are vertically oriented in the middle of the front fascia. The side profile of the Equinox has a blacked-out B-pillar and a black horizontal trim piece on the C-pillar. Higher trim levels have a black roof for a sportier look. At the back, the Equinox has r-shaped taillights and a robust rear bumper.

We don’t expect Chevrolet to make any changes to the Equinox’s interior design for 2026. The SUV has a contemporary look with circular air vents, a tiered dashboard, and a row of physical controls at the bottom of the center console. The Equinox’s central display is slightly angled toward the driver, while a circular gear shifter opens up space for storage.

On the tech front, the 2026 Chevrolet Equinox should continue to come with an 11-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11.3-inch touchscreen. Chevrolet hasn’t provided a full list of standard features for the 2025 Equinox. We expect the 2026 model to come with a Google-based infotainment system, a Wi-Fi hotspot, an available wireless charging pad, optional navigation, and six audio speakers.
