The midsize crossover SUV segment is getting very popular as people continue to trade in their old SUVs for CUVs, which offer better fuel economy and handling. With such a crowded feel to the market, however, it can be difficult to know where to start. Don’t worry though, just come down to our Schaumburg-area Chevy dealer and test drive the 2013 Chevy Equinox. It’s truly one of the best crossovers currently on the market.
Powertrain and Fuel Economy
The standard engine for the 2013 Chevy Equinox is a 2.4L four-cylinder that produces a nice 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, you’re looking to get 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, which is very impressive for a midsize CUV. If that’s not enough power for you, there is an optional 3.6L V6 available. This engine gets you a speedy 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are available with all-wheel drive, something you might want to keep in mind if you’ve ever struggled through a Schaumburg winter.
Vehicle Trims and Features
Of course, you probably want to know what comes with the Equinox. It’s available in three trim levels, each packed with features:
- LS: The base trim comes very well equipped with standard power accessories, OnStar, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, keyless entry, and much more.
- LT: This second trim is technically divided in two. In both subtrims, you’ll get more features like a rearview camera, seven-inch touchscreen, remote ignition, and heated seats.
- LTZ: The LTZ trim is the best you’re going to get. It can help you park with rear parking sensors and includes a power liftgate to help when you have your hands full. There are also very cushy perforated-leather seats.
Many features are available on their own or as part of optional packages, so you don’t necessarily need to upgrade if there’s just one or two extra features you want.
