2020 Chevrolet Equinox

2020 Equinox Photos
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is a middle-of-the-road player in a mainstream segment. The Chevy Equinox is slightly larger outside than its major compact crossover rivals, such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. It’s much larger than the subcompact Chevy Trax but still shy of the mid-size Blazer. The Equinox’s bulk strains the base 1.5-liter turbo four, but acceleration with the optional 2.0-liter is plenty quick. Ride and handling are competent but unexceptional. Inside, the Equinox cabin is decently roomy but the design and materials are plain. The optional 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is easy to use—a 7-inch unit is standard, and both include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and automatic high-beams are standard on all models.

For 2020, there’s an available Midnight Edition package for the LT trim level, which gives the exterior a blackout treatment. The top-spec Premier can be sportified with the Redline Edition package.

The base L trim level ($24,995) offers almost no options, not even all-wheel drive. AWD can be added to the LS, which otherwise adds little content. The LT ($28,695) is a more reasonable starting point for most folks, and can be had with leather, blind-spot monitoring, and the larger engine. The top-spec Premier starts at $32,595 and includes a raft of additional comfort and convenience items.

All Equinox models come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four that still pairs with a six-speed automatic. Its 170 horses trail most competitors, but its 203 lb-ft of torque is competitive. With front-wheel drive, its EPA estimates are 26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway; all-wheel drive drops those each by 1 mpg. The optional 2.0-liter turbo is available on the LT and Premier models, and it, too, can be paired with front- or all-wheel drive. Its 252 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque are strong for the category. Paired with a nine-speed automatic, its EPA estimates are 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway (FWD) or 22/28 mpg (AWD). The 2.0L tows an impressive 3,500 pounds, while the 1.5L is rated to tow a more typical 1,500 pounds.
