  • Overview

    For a manufacturer to be successful, it takes much more than offering up designs that catch the eye and pique the interest of the vehicle-buying public. The average consumer is looking for a model that can assist them in their daily lives and sustain itself for many years and miles. After all, purchasing any vehicle is more along the lines of making a long-term investment and not just acquiring a consumer good. Therefore, a successful manufacturer introduces vehicles to the public that are practical, sustainable, and have the ability to adapt to the ever-growing needs that appear to change with each passing year. And when it comes to the upcoming model year, the 2024 Chevy Equinox manages to represent all of these unique attributes.

    It serves as a masterclass in the efficiency many consumers look for in their vehicles. As the SUV continues to rise in popularity as the ideal vehicle for the family-oriented driver, Chevy has taken great lengths to refine their selections to provide the very best to the customers who rely on them every day. With a starting MSRP of only $26,600, the Equinox is priced much less than some of its most notable competitors, such as the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-50, and the Volkswagen Tiguan.[a] This list practically reads as a “who’s who” or the cream of the crop. And, as we examine the 2024 Chevy Equinox, we’ll soon find out that this particular vehicle rises to the very top and offers much more than the competition.

  • Performance

    For the average consumer, practicality takes precedence when it comes to having a functional and reliable method of transportation. Aside from being reliable and having the capacity to handle all of the needs placed upon the average driver, performance and fuel economy are both important factors influencing the decision of any vehicle purchase. It’s only logical that it is where we start our examination of the 2024 Chevy Equinox. As many potential buyers have done for the past several decades, we’re going to pop the hood and take a closer look at what the vehicle brings to the table in terms of performance.

    A trend that many manufacturers have been following in recent years is streamlining the production of the available powertrains by making one engine the standard offering across all trim levels. This is advantageous for consumers, as it makes parts easier to get for the routine service necessary to sustain their purchase’s longevity. The 2024 Chevy Equinox is just such a vehicle.

    The Standard 1.5L Four-Cylinder Engine

    Chevy equips their SUV with a powertrain that consists of a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine. 175 hp provides an agile and capable drive, and six-speed automatic transmission is utilized for optimum performance. For those who have some occupational tasks to take care of, the Equinox also possesses a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs when properly equipped. Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain, though all-wheel drive is available for those looking to battle the occasional snowfall three to four months out of the year.

    Fuel Economy

    Despite being a midsize SUV, the 2024 Chevy Equinox also provides drivers with conservative fuel consumption with its scaled-down powertrain. And to think, there was once a time when only six and eight cylinders could be found propelling SUVs forward. The four-cylinder engine that powers the Equinox allows for 26 MPG when traveling within the city limits and 31 MPG on the highway for a combined total average of 28 MPG. Drivers can expect to travel up to 417 miles on a full tank, meaning that depending on your commute, you can go much further for less.

  • Interior

    While there’s no denying that the 2024 Chevy Equinox strongly emphasizes being a practical choice for the average consumer, it doesn’t skimp on the style and aesthetic that our modern sensibilities are known for gravitating toward. As far as the exterior design is concerned, the Equinox makes a memorable first impression due to its black fascia, which looks exceptionally striking when paired with a red paint job. And, for the 2024 model year, bold new colors like Riptide Blue Metallic and Lakeshore Blue Metallic are introduced for a look that’s just as memorable upon a first-time viewing. The black wheels are available in a 19-inch setup, which boost the Equinox's presentation.

    Available Touchscreen Sizes and Connectivity

    The level of detail that Chevy has placed on the design of the Equinox extends far beyond the vehicle's exterior, so let’s open that driver-side door and get behind the wheel. Because we’re sure you’ll find it just as appealing. Like many other vehicles that can be found on the marketplace, the interior of the Equinox is anchored by its infotainment screen. A 7-inch is standard, though upper trims have a larger screen that's out to eight. We really enjoyed the symmetrical design of the screen’s placement, as it sits perfectly nestled in between two HVAC vents. The infotainment screen is your gateway to a variety of technological features. In an age where being tech-savvy is commonplace, you’ll have compatibility with both Apple and Android products and the capability to access a Wi-Fi hotspot.

    Ample Passenger and Cargo Space

    The interior also has plenty of the practical advantages that come with owning an SUV. These consist of seating for five adults. By all accounts, the Equinox has plenty of legroom to stretch out and get comfortable, and for those who want to take their comfort levels to the next level, heated seats are available on some of the upper trim levels. Of course, there’s also more than enough room for hauling groceries and the rewards that come from yard sales. With over 63 available cu.ft. of storage space, you’ll have room to spare and more.

  • Safety

    Now that we’ve taken a look at the exterior and interior advantages and the attributes of performance and fuel economy, we’ll now turn our attention to the single-most important aspect of any vehicle purchase—safety. With the majority of SUV drivers being family-oriented, it only makes sense that Chevy would take the initiative to equip the Equinox with a host of safety and driving assistance features to provide an added layer of protection as well as an oversight when their customers are on the road.

    Chevy Safety Assist

    Standard on all trims is a comprehensive suite of features called Chevy Safety Assist. This package includes features that are meant to enhance reaction time, which is one of the most important aspects of safe driving. These features include automated emergency and front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, and forward collision alert. To ensure that you maintain your position during your travels, lane keep assist with lane departure warning are also standard, and Intellibeam automatic high beams are in place to maximize visibility when situations outside of your control limit it.

    The Exclusive Teen Driver Technology

    For those of you who have younger drivers in your family, the Teen Driver Technology also comes standard. Think of this as a report card and ground rules for the younger drivers in your family. You’ll be able to control things like how high the stereo can be played and the maximum speed, and driving habits are recorded so you can be reassured that your new driver is practicing the responsible habits you’re imparting to them. This unique feature truly makes the Equinox stand out from its competition; offering added safety for not just yourself but for your newly licensed teen.

    Available Safety Enhancements

    If safety is a top priority for you and the vehicles you drive, you have the chance to upgrade the features and maximize your protection, no matter where your travels might lead you. The Driver Confidence Package II includes a lane change alert with side blind zone alert and a rear cross traffic alert. You also have the chance to have the Equinox outfitted with adaptive cruise control. Highly effective during long stretches of highway driving, this advanced system will adjust your vehicle speed to correspond with traffic patterns and help with reaction time.
