Part of Chevrolet’s lineup for the past decade, Equinox has the pricing and features of a compact crossover SUV, but it’s slightly larger than its direct competition: closer in dimensions to a midsize model. Standard features are more abundant than typically expected in its price class. Equinox comes in four trim levels: LS, 1LT, 2LT, and top-of-the-line LTZ.
Chrome-clad wheels are standard on 2014 Equinox LTZ models. Otherwise, nothing has changed for 2014, apart from two new exterior colors.
Front-wheel drive is standard, while optional all-wheel drive adds winter weather capability. Chevrolet offers a choice of four-cylinder or V6 engine for the Equinox.
The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder uses direct injection for more power and better fuel economy. It’s smoother than most four-cylinders, and we think it’s a capable engine. The 2014 Equinox with the 2.4-liter engine and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 22/32 mpg City/Highway; the 2014 Equinox AWD is rated at 20/29 mpg. With front-drive, in particular, that’s an impressively thrifty highway figure for this class.
