Equinox: A Spacious Interior

With seats for up to five passengers and loads of cargo space, the Chevy Equinox makes sure you've got space for everyone and everything you'll need when you hit the road.

Front passengers will enjoy these interior dimensions:

  • Front Headroom: 40 inches
  • Front Legroom: 40.9 inches
  • Front Shoulder Room: 57.2 inches

Even in the second row, passengers will have up to 38.5 inches of headroom and 39.9 inches of legroom to stretch out in.

The space inside the Equinox doesn't end there, though. You'll also have a maximum of 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the fold-flat rear seat with 60/40 split. This allows you to configure the passenger and cargo space to fit your needs!

There is even a hidden storage area under the rear cargo floor to keep extra supplies and additional cargo.

Chevy Equinox: Exciting On-Road Performance

 When you get on the road, you'll be astounded by the excellent performance capabilities of this SUV. In part, you can thank the 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine for that. This engine can reach up to 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque and still earned an EPA-estimated 26 city and 31 highway MPG fuel economy rating.

This engine pairs with a 6-speed automatic transmission that offers smooth shifting while on the road. You'll also have driver shift controls so you can take control of gear shifting when you want it.

Plus, the engine comes standard with Automatic Stop/Start, which will turn the engine off when you come to a complete stop. The engine will restart when you remove your foot from the brake to help you conserve fuel.

2021 Equinox: Capable Technology Features

When it comes to technology, the Chevy Equinox leaves nothing to be desired! Chevy Safety Assist comes standard and includes: 

  • Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Follow Distance Indicator
  • IntelliBeam® Auto High Beam Assist

Additionally, there is an available Adaptive Cruise Control system, which will add some much-needed support when on a long drive. This works similarly to a traditional cruise control system, however, it is also able to control your speed so you can stay at a set following distance.

With standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration on your side, you can control your music, maps, and apps all through a touchscreen with a layout similar to that of your phone.
