The Chevrolet Equinox competes in a very, very competitive segment with plenty of high-quality models. But the new Equinox is able to confidently outperform by providing consumers with the connectivity features they seek, a spacious interior and a range of powerful engines.
Yes, there are many reasons to love the new 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and it all starts with the engine options available.
A turbo and diesel for the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox
The new Equinox no longer offers a V6 engine, but that does not make it any less capable. The Equinox's new four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivers an impressive 260 lb-ft of low-end torque, more than the old V6. This translates into higher performance (0-100 km in about 7.0 seconds) and a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. That's more than most other compact SUVs. The turbo engine is also more fuel-efficient than the V6.
There is also a traditional four-cylinder engine that is powerful and reliable, or a 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine option as well. The latter also offers a lot of torque with 240 lb-ft of torque, but its fuel consumption rating is close to 6.0 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway which is remarkable.
The engines of the new Equinox make the model very attractive, but it also stands with its range of impressive technologies. You will not find an SUV with more connectivity options in this segment. Offering unique features such as 4G LTE connectivity which allows internet access in the vehicle, the Equinox ensures that you and your family are always connected. Wi-Fi is combined with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technologies as well as a central easy-to-navigate touchscreen.
Finally, the new 2019 Chevrolet Equinox offers up to 1,810 liters of trunk space, which is more than enough for your weekend family adventures. Come meet us today at Vickar Chevrolet to learn more!
