With so many small SUVs out there, it’s a fairly competitive segment which means that every entry has to be on top of its game. Through the years, the Chevy Equinox has come out on top thanks to its excellent engine options, tons of available space, and a smooth and comfortable ride that is difficult to beat. In addition, the seats are incredibly comfortable, which would provide all of your passengers with all-day comfort. While these things are all well and good, how are the Equinox’s features? Well, we are happy to report that even at the base trim level each year the Equinox is well equipped with tons of advanced tech and luxury items. So what else can a pre-owned Equinox provide you? Continue reading below for all the details!
What engines are available for the Equinox?
The Chevy Equinox has always been a powerful vehicle, and depending on which year you go with, you can get up to three engine options. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers an impressive 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque which pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. For a little added power, you can opt for a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and connect to a smooth sailing nine-speed automatic transmission. Earlier years also included a diesel-powered engine, a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder that gets up to 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft torque, which also pairs with a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel-drive comes standard, but most trims will have the option of all-wheel-drive for some added traction.
Is the Equinox well-equipped?
You bet it is! No matter what year of the Equinox you get, it is well-equipped even on the base trim level. That base trim level is known as the L, and it comes with automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, and height-adjustable front seats. Several tech items are available on the L, including Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 7-inch touchscreen. More advanced features are available for the LS. For example, it adds a broader range of exterior colors and a Convenience package with a power-adjustable driver’s seat and rear privacy glass. The most premium features are available on the LT as it mixes in xenon headlights, an upgraded information display, and auxiliary rear-seat release levers. Three additional packages for the LT add a power liftgate, heated front seats, and blind-spot monitoring. Last but not least is the top-of-the-line Premier which rounds things out with the most premium features, including LED headlights and taillights, a hands-free liftgate, driver-seat memory functions, and wireless device charging.
How Safe is the Equinox?
While the Chevy Equinox might come with tons of available features and superior engine options, over the years, it also earned its reputation as an incredibly safe vehicle thanks to its fantastic amount of safety systems. With the Equinox, you get a Forward Collision Mitigation system that will warn you of an impending frontal collision and even apply the brakes in certain situations. You also get a Lane Departure Mitigation system that will alert you when you’re drifting outside your lane when you don’t use your turn signal. In addition, all trim levels, no matter what year of the Equinox you get, will come with 10-airbags and stability control. Finally, the Premier trim has a Blind-Spot Monitoring system that will warn you when another vehicle is in your lane, which will allow you to make safe lane changes!
