New 2016 Chevrolet Equinox at The Chevy Source for Long Island, NY
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is a perfect combination of style and versatility with the space to meet your demands. You get the comfort and convenience you want with the latest connectivity and available safety technologies you require. Whatever you want to do, you can with this fuel-efficient SUV. For 2016, the Chevy Equinox not much is updated that would disrupt its appeal. Rather, it gets a light refresh that brightens and sharpens this crossover's exterior look, warms up the cabin look and feel, and makes the feature set a little more straightforward and safety-conscious.
Under the Equinox's Hood
The base 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is one of the more advanced engines in its class, and with direct injection, variable valve timing, and a six-speed automatic, you can get quite a bit of real-world performance out of it--more than the 0-60 mph time of around nine seconds might suggest. Passing power is good enough even when you have some passengers; and our only issue with this engine is that its direct-injection-related clattering sounds are more prominent than in most other modern fours. And if they need some added grunt for full loads and mountain grades, the 3.6-liter V-6 is smooth and very strong. It makes 301 hp; and while it's considerably thirstier than the four, you might consider it a worthwhile upgrade. It's one of the only six-cylinders left in this segment, as many others have switched to turbocharged four-cylinders and even naturally aspirated fours alone. The engine choice, along with a choice between front- and all-wheel drive with either powertrain, should give most shoppers what they want for their family needs.
Design of Chevrolet Equinox
Chevrolet vehicles have been given a new dual-port grille design over the past couple of years, and now the Equinox steps in with the rest of the lineup; accompanying the new grille is a more sculpted lower front fascia design, as well as new reflector-style headlamps on all models, with LED running lamps on the LT and LTZ. The top LTZ gets new fog lamps, while V-6 models get chrome exhaust outlets; additionally new wheels, revised lower fascias, and more brightwork all around serve to update the look. The taillights adopt a two-square look like most other Chevy models, and there's new chrome trim on the tail for LTZ editions. Otherwise the Equinox continues with essentially the same handsome sheetmetal and profile it's had since 2010-which has aged quite well, considering.
