Known for creating versatile SUVs, Chevrolet did not fail to deliver with the launch of the Chevrolet Equinox. Produced in 2004, this 4-door crossover model consistently leads the Chevy's SUV line with its 301-hp, 3.6 liter V6 engine, keeping up with the Chevy tradition of producing automobiles with style and power. What sets the Equinox even more apart from its competitors is that it's a fuel-efficient beast with 17 mpg in city driving and 24 mpg on the highway, giving competitors Honda CR-V and Ford Escape a run for their money. Anyone would surely enjoy driving this babywhen that upshift-happy 6-speed automatic takes over, the engine motor starts churning up heaps of horsepower without creating any noise under the hood.
Owning the current Chevrolet Equinox is a real treat; were it not for its predecessors, GM won't be able to almost perfect this SUV. Back in 2004, its Chevrolet Equinox parts didn't make heads turn even if it included a great exterior, roomy passenger and cargo areas, and decent engine system. One factor which may have caused this is the vehicle's lack of off-road capabilities. Fast forward to 2009, the Equinox started making headlines in its North American International Auto Show debut. It was equipped with a more powerful and fuel-efficient four-cylinder, an upscale look inside and out, and a set of high-tech features that made its rivals look pale by comparison. The only downside for that year's Equinox was the lack of cargo space that most SUV shoppers were after.
This year's Chevrolet Equinox is a lot similar to 2010's version, only better. Currently, it features a larger cargo space, an upgraded audio system, Bluetooth wireless technology, and other convenience add-ons that improve comfort and stability of the auto. With its top-notch performance, bold exterior, and sophisticated style, the Equinox is definitely today's SUV king.
