Chevrolet revealed right now the fourth era of its common compact crossover.

Most notably, the 2025 Equinox is wider by greater than two inches; it’s also barely longer and taller.

Chevy has simplified trim-level choices, paring the lineup to 3 distinct fashions: LT, sporty RS, and new, off-road flavored Activ. Although Chevy has not introduced pricing, we count on the fashions to ascend in that order. Gone for 2025 is the bottom LS and topline Premier.

Returning is a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The 175-horsepower powerplant pairs with a CVT automated in front-wheel-drive examples of the Equinox, whereas AWD models can be fitted with an 8-speed automated.

Apparently transferring the Equinox upmarket, the usual tools listing has been expanded, and now contains the next options:

  • Adaptive cruise management
  • Heated entrance seats and steering wheel
  • Energy rear liftgate
  • 11-inch instrument panel
  • 11-inch contact display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Google built-in voice recognition

Additionally new, the Activ trim stage brings a rugged, off-road prepared look to Chevy’s compact crossover, and contains the next tools and trim bits:

  • Rugged entrance fascia with vertical grille inserts and grey metallic-finished accents
  • Blacked-out badging
  • 17-inch machined-face alloy wheels
  • Maple Sugar and Black inside theme, with premium suede and microfiber seating surfaces
  • Out there heated and ventilated entrance seats rear heated outboard seats

The brand new Equinox can be accessible later in 2024. Pricing can be introduced shortly earlier than the brand new Chevy’s on-sale date.

Test Drive: 2023 Chevrolet Equinox Premier

CG Says:

In the case of compact crossover gross sales, the Toyota RAV4 (435,000 models in 2023), Honda CR-V (361,000), and Nissan Rogue (271,000), dominate the phase. In the course of the pack is the Equinox, which quietly accounted for 213,000 gross sales final 12 months. That’s greater than quite a lot of more-discussed small crossovers, together with the Hyundai Tucson (209,000), Mazda CX-5 (153,000), Subaru Forester (152,000), Ford Escape (141,000), and Kia Sportage (141,000).

Given the market’s urge for food for off-road wanting crossovers, we’re predicting the brand new Activ trim stage will go a long way in direction of enhancing Equinox gross sales quantity. Whether or not or not Chevy’s usually likable compact ute can catch the number-three Rogue in general annual gross sales stays to be seen. Pricing will play a giant function on this race, as will public response to the crossover’s new look.
