Introduction

The Chevrolet Equinox is a solidly built compact crossover SUV closely related to the GMC Terrain. Last redesigned for 2010, it carries over with little change for the 2017 model year, following the addition of safety features and a light refresh for 2016. The top trim level, formerly LTZ, is now the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox Premier.

While the GMC Terrain proclaims a more masculine aura with its squared-off styling, the Equinox is more rounded. Carlike in operation, the Equinox fits right in among Chevrolet’s sedans, courtesy of sharp detailing and attractive proportions. Chevrolet’s compact crossover has sold well, helped by a choice of four-cylinder or V6 powertrain, offered with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Boasting direct injection, the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 182 horsepower and ranks among the most fuel-efficient in its class. The available 3.6-liter V6 develops 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. Both engines mate with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

All-wheel drive, which adds 100 pounds to vehicle weight, is available for every trim level except the base-level Equinox L. An Equinox is considerably more maneuverable than Chevrolet’s much larger, three-row Traverse.

Comparatively large for a compact crossover, the Equinox is roomy inside. Interior space is easily configurable for cargo or people. The rear bench can slide fore/aft, offering up to 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the seat up, and nearly 64 cubic feet with seatbacks flipped down. Moving to the farthest rearward position provides extra room for passenger knees. Two adults can spread out in the second row, with decent legroom and good head clearance.

Crash-test scores have been good, but not top-notch. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given a four-star rating overall, with the same score for frontal impact and rollover protection. Equinox was rated Good in all categories, including the difficult small-overlap test, by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Chevrolet’s optional collision-mitigation system got only a Basic rating.

A rearview camera is standard, which is good news because rearward visibility is poor otherwise. Lane-departure and forward-collision warning systems are available, but only in the top trim level.

Lineup

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes with a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive ($1,750) and four-cylinder engine or V6 ($1,500).

Equinox L ($23,100) comes with cloth upholstery, rearview camera, OnStar 4G LTE, remote keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering column, six-speaker audio, USB port, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and a 7-inch touchscreen. Equinox LS ($25,510) adds SiriusXM satellite radio (3-month trial) and a digital compass.

Equinox LT ($26,750) adds heated power mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and roof rails. Chevrolet’s MyLink system enables Bluetooth streaming and integrates Pandora and Stitcher internet-radio, plus navigation connectivity. Options include the V6 engine with sport-tuned suspension, plus blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Midnight and Sport Edition packages are available ($1,695).

Equinox Premier ($30,040) gets perforated-leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, foglamps, automatic climate control, and 18-inch wheels. Active-safety features are available, including forward collision and lane-departure warnings. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Walkaround

Mechanically, Chevrolet Equinox is practically a twin to the GMC Terrain. While GMC’s version is more aggressively styled, the Equinox doesn’t come across as anonymous, like some crossover models. Somewhat large for a compact crossover, and a bit chunky, the Equinox might also be perceived as a scaled-down version of the three-row Traverse.

Mild facelifting for 2016 gave the Equinox a more contemporary front end, with a sculpted lower fascia. With its dual-port grille, the Equinox more closely resembles other Chevrolet models. Upper trim levels get LED running lights.

Interior

The Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover is a versatile cargo/people hauler for families that don’t need more than two rows of seats. The sliding second-row seat, which travels 8 inches forward/back, permits maximizing interior space to favor either back-seat passengers or cargo.

In every trim level, front passengers get the best seats, which are upright and supportive. The driver’s seat is especially appealing, in good position and carlike. Perforated leather upholstery in the Premier edition has an upscale look and feel.

Materials are good quality. The mild refresh for 2016 dealt with many cheaper-feeling materials.

In total, the cabin is surprisingly well-composed. An effective noise-cancellation system subdues sounds and light vibrations in four-cylinder models. Wind noise is nicely quelled, but the engine can be coarse while idling.

Stowage space is plentiful, for both smaller and bigger items. The deep center console can consume electronic devices and purses. Our only complaint is a cargo floor that should be a bit lower, but there’s a retractable cover and stretchable cargo net.

Driving Impressions

Mechanically, at least, not much has changed since 2010. With either engine, the Equinox falls near the middle of its category in terms of power and dynamic functions.

Impressively advanced, including direct injection, the base engine provides respectable performance. A four-cylinder Equinox can reach 60 mph in around nine seconds, which is slow, roughly the same as the Honda CR-V. Passing demands some pre-planning. Engine clatter is rather prominent, but ride quality is good.

The V6 is the way to go for towing or confident performance, though it is substantially more thirsty. A V6 Equinox can haul up to 3,500 pounds. Not many V6 options remain in this segment, with competitors leaning toward turbo-four engines.

With either engine, transmission shifts can be rough. On hills, or in heavy traffic, the transmission might hesitate. Manual shifts are made using plus/minus toggle buttons on the gearshift knob.

Visibility remains a challenge, especially impaired by thick rear pillars.

Four-cylinder gas mileage is reasonably thrifty. With front-wheel drive, the base four-cylinder model is EPA-rated at 21/31 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the four-cylinder EPA estimate to 20/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. In four-cylinder models, an Eco button can boost efficiency by reducing accessory power draw, optimizing shift points, and locking the transmission’s torque converter earlier.

Though it delivers towing power and is better able to pass on steep grades, the V6 is EPA-rated at only 17/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive sinks the estimate to 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined.

Summary

The Chevrolet Equinox makes a fine family vehicle for vacations and road trips, as well as daily use. Considering its basic technology, this compact crossover provides good value, with an impressive option list for personal preferences. We recommend the four-cylinder engine for most buyers, but a light foot is needed to achieve the EPA’s fuel-economy estimates.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
