2025 Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet has officially announced pricing for the fully redesigned 2025 Equinox. The compact SUV, which received an updated exterior design, a new interior design, an updated engine, and new tech features for the 2025 model year, will cost an extra $2,000 when it arrives at dealers. Pricing for the 2025 Chevrolet Equinox starts at $28,600 (prices don’t include destination) for the base LT trim.

Unlike last year, the 2025 Equinox starts off with the LT trim, as Chevy has discontinued the LS. Last year, the 2024 Equinox LS started at $26,600, representing a jump of $2,000 for 2025. But if you compare LT trims to one another, pricing for the 2025 Equinox has actually gone down by $895. When you consider the fact that the Equinox has been fully redesigned for 2025 and automakers are raising the prices of their vehicles across the board because of inflation.

While pricing for the LT trim has gone down by a wide margin compared to last year, the mid-level RS trim gets a substantial increase. The 2025 Equinox RS now starts at $33,000, which represents a dramatic increase of $2,050 from last year. The Activ trim will also start at $33,000.

For 2025, the Equinox gains a more striking exterior design, an overhauled cabin that matches the automaker’s newer models, a standard 11.3-inch touchscreen, a standard 11-inch digital instrument cluster, and standard Google built-in. Under the hood, the 2025 Equinox comes with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 175 horsepower. Unlike last year, the Equinox is available with a continuously variable automatic transmission for models with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission for SUVs with all-wheel drive.

The refresh comes at a good time for Chevy, as the Equinox was starting to feel outdated and well behind the pack against other compact SUVs. Despite the discontinuation of the LS trim for 2025, the Equinox is still competitively priced. It costs less than the Mazda CX-5 ($29,300), Ford Escape ($29,495), Honda CR-V ($29,500), Toyota RAV4 ($28,675), Volkswagen Tiguan ($28,880), and Dodge Hornet ($31,400). The Kia Sportage ($27,190), Hyundai Tucson ($27,500), Subaru Forester ($27,095), and Jeep Compass ($25,900) cost less than the Equinox.
