We are acquainted with the Chevrolet Equinox model in the segment of crossovers for quite sometime now. But with the 2020 year edition release of the Equinox series, Chevrolet has added some more value in terms of safety and other technology features, making even the base Chevy Equinox L models worth a second look.
What it Offers
With these positive changes, the 2020 model year edition of Chevrolet Equinox is now worth been sited as an example of how an ideal crossover should be a medley of value and practicality.
As rightly pointed out by the sales experts serving the Smithfield Chevrolet dealership, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has a fast pace of rising popularity because it could perform equally well in the aspects of driving fun without fringing upon the territory of vehicle safety. Moreover, as a full sized crossover SUV it offers plenty of space for a large number of people inside its comfortable cabin.
Seeing the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox anybody can realize why the crossover SUVs must have replaced other family car types like mid-size sedans, hatchbacks, or minivans, and has become the family vehicle type by default.
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox in other words can be described better as a vehicle that could perfectly balance between style and comfort, safety,and drive fun, and above all performance and fuel economy. So who can resist the appeal of such an all-rounder, when it is time to buy a family vehicle that can seat up to seven passengers and their respective luggage without a hassle.
For the year 2020, Chevrolet paints theMidnight Edition of Equinox in a blacked-out trim. Apart from that, the 2020 year lineup counts abunch of new exterior colors, and a new set of active safety features that are now set as standard on all Equinox models which includes an automatic emergency braking.
The other change to be seen in the power front according to the Smithfield Chevrolet dealer is the removal of the turbodiesel model due to a slow sales record.
Grunt of Power
The 2020 year model of Chevrolet Equinox sees the departure of the above mentioned turbodiesel engine, but that is compensated with two equally powerful yet thrifty turbocharged gasoline inline-4 engines. One is of 1.5-liter turbo-4 capacity that can make 170 horsepower, and the other is of 2.0-liter turbo-4 one that can bump up the horsepower count up to 252.
Following the current trend, Chevrolet too sets up front-wheel drive as the standard drivetrain for all 2020 Equinox models while all-wheel drive is kept available as an upgradable option across the entire range. To mate the engines Chevrolet assigns a 6-speed automatic for the base, and a 9 speed automatic one for the upgraded models. With either of these engines loaded under the hood, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox rides fairly well and handles with equal efficiency, while its active noise cancellation system keeps the interior cabin aloof from the outside scenarios.
