What's New in the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox?

Which Equinox is the Best?

Choosing an Equinox engine option really depends on how you'll use it. For urban driving and highway cruising, the 1.5-liter turbo will do quite nicely. If having some fun trumps mileage concerns, the 2.0-liter will take care of that. With the engine choice made, we'd go with the LT trim and add a few option packages, as well as AWD for improved traction in winter driving. Find a Chevrolet Equinox for sale

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox's comes in four trims: L, LS, LT and Premier. The 1.5-liter is standard on all grades, while the 2.0-liter upgrade is offered on just two grades, those being LT and Premier.

The L ($24,995) is the most affordable model, offering a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, six airbags, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, Teen Driver Mode, cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, forward-collision warning, full power accessories, remote keyless locks, active noise cancellation, a rearview camera, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with redundant audio controls, automatic on/off headlights, heated folding outboard mirrors, 17-in aluminum wheels, OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hot spot and a MyLink 6-speaker audio system with a 7-in touchscreen, USB port, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Chevy offers no factory option packages for this trim.

The LS ($27,495) adds to the standard equipment found on the L with rear carpet floor mats, a compact spare tire, a jack and a compass. Available options include a keyless entry keypad, as well as a couple of weather-protection packages.

The LT comes standard with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine ($28,695) and adds to the LS gear with high-intensity discharge headlights, satellite radio capability, an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat, second-row manual seat release levers in the cargo area, a leather-wrapped shift knob and deep-tinted rear glass. Options include the Confidence and Convenience Package with remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated outboard mirrors with integrated turn signals, blind spot monitoring, lane-change alert, rear cross-traffic alert and heated front seats, as well as the Sun & Infotainment Package, which includes a panoramic power sunroof, an upgraded MyLink audio system with an 8-in touchscreen, a 120-volt power outlet and dual USB data ports.

The adding the 2.0-liter turbo to the LT ($31,195) builds on its other features with a 9-speed automatic transmission, 18-in bright aluminum wheels, chrome dual outlet exhaust and heated folding outboard mirrors. It offers the same option packages as the LT 1.5-liter turbo.

Competition

2020 Chevrolet Equinox vs the competition

2020 Honda CR-V -- We can't have a conversation about small crossovers and not include the segment sales-leading CR-V. Honda recently gave it a ground-up redesign, keeping it in the crosshairs of every competitor out there.

2020 Nissan Rogue -- A sales winner for Nissan, the Rogue. recently outsold every SUV and crossover for a couple of months earlier in the year. Its attractive price and passenger-friendly performance contribute to its popularity.

2020 Kia Sportage -- Although it offers less cargo room than many of its competitors, the Sportage earns a spot on this list because of its value pricing. Loads of passenger space, a comfy ride and tons of content puts the Sportage solidly in the hunt.

Used Acura RDX -- A 2014-2018 Acura RDX delivers big in the areas of power, luxury and capability, plus adds great resale and reliability in a luxury crossover that won't cost much more than a new Equinox LT or Premier.
