2021 Chevrolet Equinox

2021 Equinox Photos
The 2021 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 midsize Blazer. The Equinox’s bulk strains the 1.5-liter turbo four, but it is adequate for daily use. 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.

A refresh was scheduled for the 2021 model year, but it was pushed back due to supply and production issues related to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the Equinox will soldier on mostly unchanged, however, the 2.0-liter engine has been dropped due to lagging customer demand.

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 Equinox is rated to tow a typical 1,500 pounds.
