Given its enduring popularity throughout the years, it’s no surprise that people are clamoring to get behind the wheel of the latest iteration of the Chevrolet Equinox. Therefore, if you’re curious to learn what all the buzz is about, check out this overview of some of its key features! That way, by the time you arrive at Knoepfler Chevrolet to test drive the 2020 Equinox, you’ll have a better idea of what it brings to the table. 


Performance Capabilities


To begin, let’s explore the possibilities placed at your disposal by the Equinox’s two engine options. Regardless of your preferred system, you’ll benefit from standard stop/start technology, as this intelligent feature shuts off your powertrain when you’re at a complete stop and revs it back up once you release the brake. That way, you’re not using up precious fuel when waiting at a red light on Hamilton Boulevard. As a result, the standard 1.5L turbo engine can crank out 170-hp and 203 lb.-ft. of torque while still maintaining a commendable 26/31 MPG city/hwy1. Similarly, although the optional 2.0L turbo system provides 252-hp, 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and a 3,500-lb. towing capacity2, it still achieves 22/29 MPG city/hwy3. Talk about getting the best of both worlds!




If comfort is a priority, then you’ll love what the interior of the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has to offer. Right off the bat, the base L trim level provides you with a 4-way manual driver’s seat, carpeted floor mats, and Active Noise Cancellation, lending this SUV a truly relaxing ambiance. Should you choose to take home an edition like the Equinox Premier, you’ll really understand the meaning of luxury, as this model raises the stakes with such standard accommodations as an 8-way power driver’s chair, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as exclusive upgrades such as perforated leather upholstery and climate-controlled front seats. Not to mention, stretching out is a breeze in the 40.9 and 39.9 inches of respective front and rear legroom.


How Safe Is the 2020 Equinox?


Given the unpredictable nature of the open road, you need a vehicle that’s equipped to keep you away from danger. For this reason, the Chevy Equinox leaves no stone unturned in this regard, as evidenced by standard safety systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking4, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning4, and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System4. From here, you can choose to supplement your sense of security with options like Rear Cross Traffic Alert4 and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert4. Whereas the latter lets you know when it’s safe to merge, the former warns you of oncoming motorists when you’re attempting to back out of a parking spot.
