The Equinox Premier was a good deal, nice features and with some TLC and proper maintenance we hope and feel confident this will last many years to come. Good for towing lighter weight stuff!

I love my car

I Have an Equinox LT , It handles good . I love the sun roof ,color , and the heated seats . It is great on gas and fits all my needs.

Most loaded vehicle I've owned.

This vehicle has plenty of room on the inside power seats control panel in the dash and in the radio. Needs more power for the four-cylinder version.

2017 Chevrolet Equinox Overview


The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV that seats 5 passengers across two rows. It competes with the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4. For 2017, the Equinox has two new available packages: the Midnight Edition and the Sport Edition. The Midnight Edition comes with a Mosaic Black metallic exterior paint job, while the Sport Edition is offered in a coat of Summit White. Both packages come with black leather seats, a memory seat and side mirrors, unique 18-inch black aluminum wheels, a black roof-rack, and a black-clad front grille and rear fascia.

Four trims are available: the L, LS, LT, and Premier.

The Equinox has an overall muscular appearance with distinctive, polygonal headlights, front grille, and front fascia. It has chrome accents, which outline the front grille, passenger windows, and door handles for a more premium look. A trailer hitch receiver, front fog lights, a power moonroof, a power liftgate, and a dual-pipe exhaust system are optional.

The Equinox is powered by a standard 182-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed transmission and front- or all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel economy for the 4-cylinder/FWD models is an EPA-estimated 22/32 mpg city/highway. With an all-wheel drive configuration, it drops to a 20/28 mpg rating. A 301-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine is also available.

Inside, the Equinox has a black cloth interior with silver-tone accents. The center console features Chevy’s MyLink multimedia system, which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, satellite radio, and 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot. Other standard features include front bucket seats, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, power windows/locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Heated front seats, a power/memory seat, automatic climate control, remote vehicle start, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Siri Eyes Free mode, and a Pioneer premium audio system are also available.
