2006 Equinox Overview

The Chevy Equinox is Chevrolet's answer to the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.It's bigger than each of them (including the all-new 2006 RAV4).Equinox is big enough that its dimensions blur the line between compact and midsize sport utilities.It's nearly 14 inches longer than the Ford Escape and just three inches shorter than a Chevy TrailBlazer.

As a result, the Equinox is roomier than other compact SUVs, and has features that enhance its versatility.The back seats are mounted on tracks and slide fore and aft.Slide forward and you have more cargo space.Slide the seats rearward for more rear legroom.The rear seatbacks also recline for additional comfort.Fold the rear seats down, then fold down the front passenger seatback down, and you can load eight-foot objects inside.However, Equinox only seats five because it does not offer a hopelessly cramped third row as the new RAV4 does.

It long wheelbase gives the Equinox good stability and ride quality.Like the CR-V, RAV4, and Escape, Equinox is based on a passenger car design.

Equinox was launched as a 2005 model so there aren't any major changes for 2006.However, the 2006 models do come standard with anti-lock brakes, cruise control, and other features, which wasn't the case last year.Also, interior changes have been made for 2006 to improve the appearance and function of the cabin.Our biggest complaints with the 2005 models had to do with interior materials.
