2019 Chevrolet Equinox Review and Specs

2019-Chevrolet-Equinox-Image

For 2019 Chevrolet made several updates and added some equipment to lower trim levels.

The first big difference you can see by getting close is the fully chrome grille.

I liked the Equinox’s spacious back seat and competent road manners and handling and the optional 2.0-liter turbo-four provided plenty of power and the nine-speed transmission shifts well.

The interior is attractive and mostly well-configured. Doesn’t have an abundance of cargo space compared to rivals.

It has plenty of features that are standard throughout the lineup, and the inclusion of six USB ports ensures all devices will be charged.

Should you buy one ? 

The Chevy Equinox is a good SUV, you’ll find supportive, spacious seats and some intuitive tech features. There aren’t many notable changes for 2019 but this last generation that began with the 2018 model year.

  • 6-speed automatic transmission with 1.5 L engine

History

The Chevrolet Equinox is a series of mid-size, later compact crossover SUV from Chevrolet, introduced in 2004.

Chevrolet unveiled the third-generation Equinox on the autumnal equinox on September 22, 2016.[25] Gasoline-powered variants of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox went on sale in early 2017, while diesel-powered variants arrived in autumn 2017.

New safety features introduced in the third-generation Equinox include a surround-view camera, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic braking, a Safety Alert Seat that uses vibration pulses to help alert the driver and avoid crashes, as well as a Rear Seat Alert system that alerts drivers who had opened the back door at the start of a trip to check the back seat once they get to their destination.

The third-generation Equinox also introduced new AWD system from GKN Driveline, which allows the driver to disengage the driveshaft to reduce friction and rotational inertia during the times the AWD is not needed.

Amp Electric Vehicles sells an all-electric conversion of the Chevrolet Equinox. They have sold their first electric Equinox to Dayton Power & Light, and had a five-year, 1,000 SUV order from Northern Lights Energy in Iceland.
