The Equinox has been a big hit for Chevrolet, and I can see why GM didn't go nuts on the redesign.
So nothing crazy here, just a more modern, maybe even softer, version of the current design.
The interior seems to be a huge improvement though.
And the whole thing is about 400 pounds lighter. Which is pretty amazing.
It also explains why the new base engine is a "small" 1.5 Liter Turbo. Already used in the Malibu sedan.
And just like the Malibu, you can all order a larger and more powerful 2.0 Liter Turbo.
Both engines come with a new 9 speed automatic.
But unlike the Malibu, and anything else in the segment, you can now order the new Equinox with a Diesel option (!)
Which is quite a surprise.
It is a new 1.6 Liter engine.
So far, it looks like GM is really doing everything to make the new Equinox a huge hit.
Not only does it look good, but the engine choices are truly some of the most moderns out there.
And the diesel is sure to surprise quite a few people.
This is one gutsy move from GM.
Good for them!
