Chevrolet Equinox Power & Handling

There are a couple of different engines you will come across when looking at pre-owned Chevrolet Equinox models. The standard engine, and therefore, probably the most common, a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This turbocharged engine pushes out 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet also offers a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine for the Equinox that outputs 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The other optional engine for the Equinox is a 137 horsepower 1.6-liter diesel.

Toyota RAV4 Power & Handling

Toyota RAV4 models are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that output 172 lb-ft of torque and 176 horsepower. The RAV4 automatically shifts through an automatic six-speed transmission. The standard drivetrain for the RAV4 is front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is optional.

Chevrolet Equinox Features & Design

Features in the different trim levels vary depending on which model year you are looking at, but we’ll let you know what you can expect to find inside an Equinox. The base L model is most likely going to come with Bluetooth, a backup camera, heated mirrors, keyless entry, USB ports, and LED daytime running lights. On the higher trim levels, you will come across heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless device charging, perforated leather upholstery, a power liftgate, remote start, an 8-inch touchscreen, and rear parking sensors. When shopping for used Equinox models, you may also come across optional features like ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a sunroof, navigation, and more!

Toyota RAV4 Features & Design

When looking at pre-owned RAV4 models you will find the features in each trim level look a little different depending on the model year you’re looking at but for the most part, you can expect to find the base LE RAV4 comes with Bluetooth, a six-speaker sound system, a 60/40-split-folding and reclining second-row seat, and on newer used RAV4 LE models, Toyota Safety Sense P which includes adaptive cruise control, lake keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. On higher trim levels you can expect to find a heated steering wheel, navigation, a premium sound system, blind-spot monitoring, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a windshield wiper de-icer, and more!
