The New Design

The 2021 Equinox has a newly designed grille. The grille features the signature Bowtie emblem that bolsters the car's stature. The headlamps are more slender than ever, which adds to its sportier look. Further, Chevy offers fog lights that strengthen safety and improve vision. Although it is a compact SUV, the rounded curves throughout the design enhance last year's model's aesthetics. Also, Chevy offers roof rails that allow additional cargo to be transported from Ilion to Little Falls.

The rear of the Equinox has an overhang on the roof. It minimizes the amount of wind flow and aids in the acceleration and performance of the SUV. Further, there is a bubble-like trunk door with the tail lights broader and brighter than ever.

The 2021 Equinox Has a Reconfigured Cabin

The new cabin features a 7-inch color touchscreen. Higher trims provide an 8-inch option. It has a MyLink infotainment interface that sits at the top of the dashboard. It responds well to the command of the finger. Some of the standard features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Bluetooth and USB ports are available too. What sets the new Equinox apart from others in its class is the onboard Wi-Fi with which Chevy has made standard this year.

The new Equinox has a seating capacity for five passengers. The rear seating passenger will enjoy increased legroom and headroom. Front seating passengers have newly designed front seats that offer more seating angles for a more relaxed ride. Children will be safe in the Equinox due to the two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors available for secure strapping of their car seats. The cargo area offers 30 cubic feet of space with the back seat is upright. The SUV provides more cargo space when the backseat is folded, allowing 64 cubic feet.

What's Under the Hood?

The latest Equinox offers a 1.5-L turbocharged engine that produces 170-hp. The engine is mated with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. Chevy made the 2.0-L turbocharged engine a viable option. When teamed with the nine-speed automatic transmission, it produces 252-hp, which will provide better fuel efficiency and an improved riding experience.

The base model of the Equinox comes as a front-wheel drive. When paired with the 1.5-L engine, it gives 26 city and 31 highway mpg. However, when the same engine is paired with the all-wheel drive, the Equinox provides 25 city and 30 highway mpg. Chevy made the turbocharged engine an option. Whether it is coupled with the front or all-wheel drive, the SUV will yield 22 mpg. On the highway, the front-wheel drive provides 29 mpg and 28 mpg with the all-wheel drive.
