A Look into the Past of the Chevrolet Equinox
The Chevrolet Equinox was launched into the North American market for the 2005 model year. The arrival of the Equinox represented a milestone for the automaker, as it was their first foray into the crossover segment. The vehicle was well received by consumers who loved the spacious interior and features on the crossover.
In 2007, Chevrolet improved horsepower and driving dynamics on the Equinox based on consumer feedback. In addition, an electronic stability control system was added to the Equinox in an effort to provide the vehicle with some off-road capability aspects.
The second generation of the Chevrolet Equinox was released in 2010. This model sported more of what is considered a true crossover style, and was available with a choice of 4 cylinder or V6 engine options. The factory began enhancing technology features across their entire model lineup during this time period, and the Equinox benefitted from this new direction.
An all-new Equinox was released for the 2018 model year by Chevrolet. The 2018 Equinox was shorter and significantly lighter than its predecessor. With compact crossover sales reaching new heights, the Equinox is poised to remain as one of the best-selling models in Chevrolet’s lineup.
