The latest compact SUV to come out of Chevrolet’s manufacturing garage is the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, and while it doesn’t have any major upgrade to its exterior, it certainly set to give a new riding experience.
When Same Is Good
Having the same need not be a bad thing, though. It could simply mean that what is currently there is already good and working fine, so there’s no need to change it. Take for example the engine of the 2017 Equinox. The car manufacturers decided to keep what they had in the previous iteration. That means keeping the 2.4-liter direct-injection inline-4, with 182 horsepower. The other option comes with the 301-hp, 3.6-liter V-6, and is available with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
You can still comfortably seat anywhere from seven to nine passengers, depending on the configuration you choose, while still having enough space for cargo at the back. With the seats up, you get a standard 31.4 cubic feet at the back, but once you fold them down, you can easily get as much as 64 cubic feet of space for all your items.
New Features On Board
While it may look the same for the most part, you’ll be glad to know that there have been upgrades to its interior features to make your ride a lot more comfortable and convenient, despite the distance. There’s the 7.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth phone pairing, the MyLink system that integrates Pandora and Stitcher internet-radio streaming, navigation connectivity, and more.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes as new as a breath of fresh air this Summer of 2016, so visit your trusty Chevy dealers serving Fort Bliss and other nearby areas.
