2016 Equinox New Car Test Drive
Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV similar in size to the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4. Equinox is a crossover utility, meaning it's based on a car chassis. Equinox is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
For 2016, Chevrolet Equinox has been updated with new styling, new safety features, and a 7-inch color touchscreen radio. The 2016 Equinox comes in Equinox L, Equinox LS, Equinox LT, and Equinox LTZ trim levels. A new front fascia with new projector-beam headlights, new taillights and rear fascia, and new wheel designs distinguish the 2016 Chevy Equinox from previous models. Interior fabrics have been enhanced, the instrument panel has been revised, and the transmission shifter has been changed for 2016. The current-generation Equinox debuted as a 2010 model.
Equinox seats five and offers 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat and 83.7 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.
Chevrolet MyLink is standard on Equinox LT and Equinox LTZ models, while OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity and built-in WiFi hotpot is offered on all trim levels. The hotspot is on whenever the car is on and comes with a three-month/3GB data trial.
Equinox offers a choice of 182-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on front-wheel-drive models or a 301-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. All come with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Equinox LS come with cloth upholstery, upgraded on LT. Equinox LTZ models upgrade to leather upholstery.
