The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox stands out in a field full of full size crossovers. With some notable changes from the 2012 model year, the Equinox easily stands head to head - or tire-to-tire we should say, with other automakers. New to this model year is a 3.6L V6 that replaces the previous 3.0L V6. Also new are a revised touchscreen interface, Chevy MyLink integration and a rear seat entertainment system.
The 2013 Chevy Equinox is available in three trim level - the LS, LT, and LTZ. Standard features on the LS trim level include 17-inch alloy wheels, power accessories, keyless entry, reclining rear seat and OnStar emergency communication system. Upgrade to the higher trim levels and you'll add on heated mirrors, rearview camera, upgraded sound system with a 7-inch touchscreen and AUX jack,. Many of the standard features on the upper trim levels can be added to the lower packages via optional add-ons.
Under the hood the Equinox comes standard with a 2.4L four cylinder engine that is good for 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Also available on all trims but the LS is a 3.6L V6 that puts out 301 hp and 272 lb-feet of torque.
