It would appear that nowadays GM is on a roll. After updating most of their sedans, they are now moving with their crossovers. One of the first for some attention was the GMC Ground which received an new platform. Well, its brother, the Equinox, has only been current and it looks a lot better than ever. There are some exciting details about it though. For starters, even though the car has been introduced, it is only going to be bought from the first quarter of 2017. Till then the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox may still be the older model which is somewhat surprising.
2017 CHEVROLET EQUINOX, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW CAR
For starters, the new model is based on a completely new platform which it gives with the Buick Envision. That allowed Chevrolet to drop 400 pounds in comparison with the older model. It is worth mentioning nevertheless that the new car is also somewhat smaller than before but this will perhaps not be a problem. Thanks to the new ground container the car also advantages of just as much space as before inside the cabin. The new platform is more rigid, cheaper to create and it ought to be much safer as well. The price has not been declared at this point but it would appear that the car will price just as much as the older model.
2017 CHEVROLET EQUINOX, WHY WAIT?
It is interesting that GM made a decision to keep the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox on the market and perhaps not release the new model sooner. This could mean that their build process is not performed or they have to get eliminate of the excess devices of the older model. In any case, the move might harm them in the long work, especially since cars like the new CX-5 and new CR-V are better than ever.
2017 CHEVROLET EQUINOX – THE DESIGN
Despite the fact the current model has been current not too long ago, it looks old. The new one on the other hand is miles a lot better than before. The front conclusion has been absolutely renovated and it today gives the Chevrolet corporate grille with the Cruze and the Malibu. The end result is spectacular. When seen from the side the car does takes people right back at the older model but the flowing lines and the shorter body make for a much nicer set of proportions. The same may be said about its rear end which is much more balanced than before.
2017 CHEVROLET EQUINOX, INSIDE THE CABIN
It appears that the new car builds up on the great interior of the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox. The basic layout is the same as before but everything is made out of curves now. The dashboard is much nicer and actually integrates leather while the driving place has been set lower. All seats provide better help than before and it appears that the car is an overall development over the older generation.
UNDER THE HOOD OF NEW 2017 CHEVROLET EQUINOX
All three engines powering the new car are turbocharged. Two of them we have presently observed before on the US market. There is the 1.5 liter turbocharged four offering 170 horsepower or a larger 2 liter device which boosts the output to 252 horsepower. Both engines offer less than the ones they change but both of them should be more efficient and also faster thanks to the massive fat loss. The third engine is a much more interesting. The Equinox may be the first car in its class to receive a diesel.
This may be a 1.6 liter turbocharged inline 4 offering 136 horsepower and more torque than the 2 liter turbo petrol engine. This is expected to become one of the best selling engines in its class especially thanks to the great fuel consumption. To date it appears that the 2 liter variation may get a nine rate computerized while the others might obtain an six rate unit.
