Is the Chevy Equinox a good SUV?

August 23rd, 2021 by

If you find yourself wishing for a vehicle that’s somewhere between a car’s maneuverability and an SUV’s size and capability, the new Chevrolet Equinox is a great crossover SUV that combines the best of both body styles. Its large and comfortable passenger space, easy steering, and spry engine, ensure you’ll get where you’re headed quickly and in style. There’s a bunch of reasons why the new Chevy Equinox is a top-seller at Bob Steele Chevrolet – let’s see what they are.

Engine and Drivetrain

While the base Chevy Equinox comes equipped with a powerfully efficient 1.5L turbo engine for zipping down Melbourne streets, if you do a lot of traveling or need to carry a good amount of gear, you might want to spring for the bigger, available 2.0L engine, which generates up to 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive, your Chevy Equinox will be a force to be reckoned with.

Space and Comfort

The new Chevy Equinox has plenty of space for up to 5 passengers, or with its back row folded down, up to 63.9 cubic feet of storage. For the really private stuff, there’s a hidden storage area under the rear cargo floor to stow them securely. The available hands-free power lift gate lets you open up the truck with arms full, perfect for when you’re carrying groceries, moving house, or just loading up for a fun weekend away.

Even with five people in the car, no one will be jockeying for space with the Equinox’s 39.9-inch legroom in the rear, and even more in the front. The head room in the equinox is plenty too, with around 40 inches in both front and rear. And on the available leather-appointed seating that can be heated and even ventilated, you and your passengers will be comfortable, regardless of the Palm Bay weather.

Great Infotainment and Technology Features for an Inspired Drive

We spend more time in our cars than ever, and Chevrolet has made that time even better with its inclusion of a number of technological and infotainment features to ease your commute or road trip. Chevrolet Infotainment 3 comes standard in the Equinox, offering easy-to-use graphics and buttons along with a 7-inch touch screen.

You can easily connect your phone with integrated Bluetooth, or use Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. If you need to charge your devices, the Equinox offers 4 USB ports, and your passengers don’t even need to use their data plans with the integrated Wi-Fi hotspot.

Chevrolet also offers plenty of available upgrades for the 2021 Equinox, including a Bose Premium Sound System, satellite radio, a power outlet for heavier appliances, and even a rear-seat entertainment system. Wherever you go, your passengers will stay happy in the Equinox!
