A Crossover Designed to Encourage Freedom
Chevy Equinox is engineered with road trips in mind – whether it’s to work in the morning – a weekend excursion or cross country vacation, Equinox is up to the task. Meticulous craftsmanship and upscale appointments will appeal to your stylish side while 6.1 l/100km highway will appeal to your sensible side.
Equinox is ideal for both family and friends. Equinox seats five comfortably and offers the most rear-seat legroom in its class, available Chevrolet MyLink connects you like nothing else. It also offers advanced safety and security features for any road trip. This is the crossover you’ve been waiting for.
A book to judge by its cover
Equinox combines functionality with a stylish exterior, making it the total package. Appearance matters, so prepare to turn a lot of heads.
Chevy dressed up the exterior of Equinox LTZ with chrome accents like door handles, mirrors and roof rack side rails. To top the chrome off, lower front and rear fascias feature bright accents to make sure your Equinox stands out from the crowd. In case that isn’t enough chrome, Equinox offers chrome door handles and mirror caps, which are shown here and available as dealer-installed Chevy accessories on models below LTZ.
You Can Roll in Style
Chevy Equinox offers the option of three wheel sizes, depending on the model you choose. So express yourself with standard 17” aluminum wheels, the available 18” chrome-clad aluminum wheels or 19” chrome-clad aluminum wheels.
Brings it all, all the time
When you’re heading on the road, you want to make sure you’re going to be able to bring everything you need. With the available roof rack, cross rails and dealer-installed trailer hitch Equinox provides, there’s nothing to stop you from packing everything up and getting where you’re going.
Style and comfort, a wonderful balance
Every inch of the 2013 Equinox is designed with comfort, quiet and convenience in mind. Equinox offers a newly available eight-way power front passenger seat, the most rear legroom in its class and acoustic laminated glass, ensuring every trip will be as comfortable and quiet as it is stylish.
You don't have to be in the driver's seat to feel like it
The seats in the Equinox are designed to make sure your most precious cargo is comfortable. The newly available eight-way power front passenger seat is a welcomed addition to accompany the 39.9 inches of rear legroom for passengers.
Multi–Flex® Sliding Rear Seat
Simply slide the Multi-Flex® rear seats forward to take advantage of extra space in the cargo area for hauling kids’ gear to the game or bags of mulch from the nursery.
Crossing over the storage standard
With 18 storage areas that come standard in Equinox, you can bring everything you need on any trip. Equinox combines a center console large enough to hold a laptop with compartments behind the rear-seat doors that are easy to reach for children and adults alike. Add the convenience of side door storage and a power programmable lift gate – that's the recipe for a successful trip.
Stay connect with Chevrolet MyLink
With Chevrolet MyLink, every ride can feel like a getaway. All of your favorite music and entertainment will be right there with you. MyLink works with your compatible smartphone and Bluetooth® wireless technology to stream content to its 7" diagonal high-resolution color-touch screen. Through voice commands or touch controls, tune into Pandora® or Stitcher SmartRadio™ or listen to commercial-free programs through the three-month trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio. You can also connect your music-loaded flash drive or MP3 player through the USB port. Gracenote® will even organize your music library by populating song information and album art.
Equinox Goes the Extra Mile
The 2013 Equinox equipped with the 4-cylinder engine features an Eco button that further enhances fuel efficiency at the touch of a button. Press the Eco button located on the center console and the powertrain reconfigures by lowering idle speeds and changing the shift points in the transmission, reducing the electrical load to the engine and allowing you to get the most out of every gallon of gasoline.
A vehicle to help monitor your surroundings
Chevy is always striving to introduce features that add safety to every facet of your vehicle. Available Lane Departure Warning reads the lines in the road and will visually and audibly alert drivers if they’ve strayed into another lane without signaling. Available Forward Collision Alert continually monitors the proximity of the vehicle in front of it. If the system detects a potential collision based on closing speeds, it will visually and audibly alert the driver. Rear park assist is available on 2LT and standard on LTZ. If you want to dominate tough parking, or just want to safely back up, the rear park assist will audibly alert you of hazards found on the rear vision camera standard on LT and LTZ so that you can reverse with ease.
Equinox is equipped with advanced technologies, including StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control and rollover mitigation which is designed to improve vehicle stability on most road surfaces, especially during emergency maneuvers and difficult driving conditions. Equinox also has four-wheel antilock disc brakes with Electronic Brake Force distribution and available all-wheel drive. The Equinox on-demand all-wheel-drive system automatically delivers power to the wheels with the best traction for optimal grip, even on slippery or unstable road surfaces.
In the event of a collision, you and your passengers have the protection of a steel safety cage, six standard air bags and the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top tethers for Children) system – all standard on Chevy Equinox.
OnStar Directions & Connections® Plan is standard for the first six months and includes Automatic Crash Response, where built–in sensors can automatically alert OnStar® for help in an emergency. Even if you can't respond, an Advisor can request that emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location. That’s peace of mind for you and your whole family.
