In the list of likeable vehicles that offer a variety of options to build your own model, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox will surely be seen as one in the first few names. In this era of crossover SUVs, where utility overtakes other priorities, Chevrolet had to make the 2019 lineup of Equinox stand with an unexpectedly wide lineup that offers its shoppers to make a choice from two gas engines, a high-mileage returning turbodiesel engine, both front- or all-wheel drivetrains, and four trim levels with escalating feature packages.

Keeping in mind the ultimate goal of building up a crossover SUV, Chevrolet allotted generous space inside the body frame of the 2019 Equinox that not only impresses you with its good looks but also with its ultra-refined demeanor. The interior having the advantage of being spacious naturally looks classier than most of its rivals, while the creature comfort features keep improving as you climb higher the price ladder of the 2019 lineup.

2019 Model Year Feature Upgrades

As gathered from the Smithfield Chevrolet dealer showroom staff, the Equinox just had a seriousmakeover last year, after which the 2019 model year can only bring changes to the relatively smaller aspects, like a new updated software for the infotainment section that looks best with its big 7.0- and 8.0-inch touchscreen displays while Chevrolet also makes an HD rearview camera introduced  as an available option on the different trim levels known as L, LS, LT and Premier.

Interior Features

Inside the cabins of every  trim of 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, you get enough room for four adult passengers along with their cargo stuffed at the rear end. The interior appointments are all aimed to make the ride cozy and comfort if not luxurious. The one thing we want Chevrolet to think about is the outward vision that is being marred with thick roof pillars, although being compensated for the driver with the help of an HD rearview camera. However, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox scores high for its tech front that makes the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility asstandard.

Source of Power

At the Smithfield Chevrolet dealership showroom, we were shown that under its hood, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox installs a 170-horsepower making 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This combination is set as the standard powertrain.

A 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine is offered as an available optionon the LT and Premier trims that is rated at 252 hp after being hooked up to a 9-speed automatic transmission.

The 1.6-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder that is clubbed with a 6-speed automatic transmission making only 137 hp is particularly included for the economy-class buyers who need a better mileage. so, this powertrain returns them a 39 mpg count of fuel economy on the highway speeds as rated by the EPA. Most of the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox trims are configured either as front- wheel or all-wheel drives.

Drive Experience

All the trim levels of the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox are drive experts. Thanks to the excellent isolationengineered by Chevrolet that keeps it aloof from the road to sustainably render a comfortable ride, with the 252-hp at the disposal of the driver to create all the thrills.
