Drivers can expect all of the amenities in the Chevrolet Equinox SUV Crossover, like air conditioning, stereo, cruise control, power locks, mirrors, and windows, and more. The control panel now has an added compass and outside temperature display, for additional convenience. Bluetooth wireless is compatible with most phones, and there is added safety with steering wheel mounted controls.
Those who choose one of the upgraded models will enjoy heated mirrors, a roof rack, heated front seats, and remote engine starting. The Chevrolet Equinox SUV Crossover is sleeker and more aerodynamic than previous models, with solid 17-inch aluminum wheels to take on any bump in the road without jostling passengers. Those needing towing ability can have the dealer install necessary equipment for the ability to pull up to 1,500 pounds.
The tailgate opens up, and smaller drivers should consider adding the exclusive extra feature of a programmable version that will ensure the tailgate doesn't open too high to reach. Available colors include black, cardinal red metallic, black granite metallic, twilight blue metallic, crystal red tint-coat, ashen gray metallic, mocha steel metallic, summit white, gold mist metallic, graystone metallic, silver ice metallic, and white diamond tri-coat.
The cloth interior is comfortable, with enough support for long rides, and comes in three colors. Also standard in the basic Chevrolet Equinox SUV Crossover model is cruise control, front and rear floor mats, child safety locks, power steering, and an adjustable steering wheel. The interior construction is serviceable, but could benefit from a softer feel, as much of it is hard plastic. The sound system is an AM/FM stereo and CD player, with Sirius XM Satellite Radio and three trial months of service.
Most common safety features come standard, such as an anti-theft system, tire-pressure monitoring, and driver/passenger airbags. The outside rearview mirrors are power-adjustable, and they include the additional benefit of integrated blind spot mirrors. Hill start assist prevents the vehicle from rolling back on an incline. The highly regarded StabiliTrak electronic stability control system provides traction control, rollover mitigation, and electronic trailer sway control for improved response to drivers' steering. The more cautious should consider optional forward collision alert, rearview camera, and lane departure warning for added security.
