2021 Chevrolet Equinox at Jack Carter Chev in Calgary, Alberta

In 2004, Chevy jumped headfirst into the fast-growing new crossover market, with a vehicle that truly captured the spirit of versatility the public was looking for. Named after the fall and winter equinoxes, the moment when Earth’s equator is in line with the centre of the Sun—a time when both day and night are almost equal, across the world—the Chevrolet Equinox brings this exceptional sense of balance to the road. A midsize SUV offering comfort, safety, and stellar driving performance, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox carries on the proud tradition of versatility synonymous with its nameplate.

Design

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox is all about balance, a notion that can be seen in its blend of athletic and stylish good looks. Sharp, strong lines run gracefully from the LED daytime running lamps, centred by an aggressively-styled grille complete with the Chevy bowtie emblem. A wide stance ensures top performance on all terrain, while also lending a sense of sportiness to a crossover at home both in the urban jungle and off the beaten path. Special edition versions of the 2021 Equinox, like the all-black Midnight Edition or the Redline Edition, offer smart and distinct details like exclusive aluminum wheels and coloured accents.

Of course, with balance being a cornerstone of the Chevy Equinox’s ethos, all those sleek, athletic exterior details are matched by a luxurious interior complete with clever, purposeful details. An available high-definition 8-inch diagonal colour touch-screen is found in the centre of the dash, providing serious control over your infotainment and performance, with elegant trims surrounding it, while a bevy of soft-touch materials provide equal measures of class and comfort. Adding even more utility to this sporty crossover, an available hands-free gesture liftgate provides easy access to the generous 1,809-litres of cargo space found in the rear of the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox—just behind the 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

Performance

The theme of balance is pervasive throughout the 2021 Chevy Equinox, and includes its fierce and efficient performance. That stylish exterior? Not only is it great to look at, but it provides serious aerodynamic capability. Match that with the standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, capable of producing 170 horses and 203 lb-ft of torque, and you’ve got a crossover SUV cable of crisp and quick acceleration. The standard stop/start technology is just the start of the excellent fuel economy found in the Equinox, with an electronically-controlled 6-speed automatic transmission helping contribute to a low 7.7 L/100 km on the highway, in front-wheel drive models. Those looking for a bit of extra control will want to experience the switchable all-wheel drive system, available on the LT and LT trims and standard on the Premier, an advanced traction system that allows you to switch to a more fuel-efficient front-wheel drive mode—or simply leave it in all-wheel drive, as the system only engages the rear wheels when you begin to lose traction. Balancing power and smarts when it comes to performance, the 2021 Equinox does it all.

Safety & Technology

You want a balanced vehicle because you live a balanced life—and that’s where the blend of safety and infotainment found in the 2021 Equinox comes into play. Starting with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System, found on the standard 7-inch or available 8-inch diagonal colour touch-screen, and its hands-free voice access to your music and favourite apps via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, to the built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot and six available USB ports. While that covers the infotainment, the standard Chevrolet Safety Assist system helps keep you safe thanks to its six advanced active safety features like Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, IntelliBeam® headlamps, and Following Distance Indicator. A Rear Vision Camera also comes standard, while available features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert offer a second set of eyes to help keep you safe.

Chevrolet Equinox Model Changes

The latest version of this capable crossover hasn’t changed too much since the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox first hit the road; part of the vehicle’s 3rd generation, first introduced in 2018, the 2021 Equinox has simply fine-tuned everything from interior amenities to performance. Omitted for 2021 was the 2.0L engine option, as the standard 1.5L Turbo engine provides a stellar blend of power and efficiency. Inside the Equinox you’ll find more interior options, with a cloth interior now available on both the Midnight and Sport special editions, as well as a new black leather option for the Equinox LT.
