Exterior - 2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Equinox is a more prim and proper version of itself this year, with a few sportier features that really enhance the look of your SUV. Choose from colors like Cherry Red Tintcoat, Summit White, and Iron Gray Metallic (one of our personal favorites here in Iowa). Of all the trims you want to experience, the RS trim is going to be your most heavily decorated. With its Unique lower fascia with body-color inserts, Gloss Black window surround, LED headlamps, and Black bowtie emblem and badging, it's an imposing, elegant looking SUV that will earn you plenty of compliments in 2021.

Interior - 2021 Chevrolet Equinox in Maquoketa

As a reinvention, the 2021 Equinox is stunning on the interior. It has, as Chevy points out, "all the right looks." It's sleek, formal, and if you buy the RS trim, you're going to get a premium interior that rivals any in the segment. It comes with jet black cloth interior but can be upgraded to jet black leather. Its red interior stitching really pops alive and goes beautifully with the black ice chrome accents surrounding it. We don't know a lot yet about its interior technology, but we expect to see big things out of this one, including a larger touchscreen infotainment system.

Two transmission options are available on the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox. First is a 6-speed automatic transmission that's very efficient, but the 9-speed automatic transmission is our choice for customers that are able to grab a higher trim or add it on. Our specials and deals every year will help you upgrade to options like this! Even if you don't think you can afford the RS, please let our finance team handle matters. We assure you that we'll be able to get the deal done for you.

A 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine gives you a very confident 170 horsepower for starters, but there's a new turbocharged 2.0L V6 that's going to change the Equinox's reputation forever. It's available standard on the RS trim and belts out 252 horsepower in a very quick manner. When you hit the gas on that RS, you know you're about to get where you want to go and quick. While we love the base model engine as well and believe it's underrated, we really love the souped up Equinox. It shows a whole new side to the Equinox that we very quickly learned to admire.

Safety - 2021 Chevrolet Equinox dealer

The Equinox's safety profile is locked down tight. You'll love having the power of automatic emergency braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Front Pedestrian Braking (at speeds under 50 MPH). Intellibeam Headlamps are another beautiful addition to the safety profile of the Equinox. When you're out there driving at night, your headlamps will automatically adjust to light levels, giving you a perfect view. When another vehicle comes by, your beams will shift down to keep from high beaming that vehicle. It's an automatic way to have better night vision while you're driving, and it all comes on your Chevrolet Equinox.

Another exciting feature of the Equinox is the new teen driver technology. You'll be glad to know that your new teen driver is safe every time they take a trip out, with technology that helps mold them into a better, safer driver, all while giving you the power to review their driving performance so that you can guide them as they learn the ropes of driving. Families with teenagers about to start driving might also consider the Equinox for your teen's first vehicle! It's a great one to start them out with.

The Chevrolet Equinox features two rows of pure bliss for families. The SUV has really come a long way over the years, adding on features that all of us in Iowa can appreciate. This year's RS trim is the biggest trim shakeup, but there's a lot of other new features on the Equinox that will thrill you. We highly recommend this one, as it gives you the perfect road trip vehicle and connectivity when you're out there getting things done. Speaking of connectivity, please stay tuned to our dealership website as we learn more about the interior technology of the Equinox. It's the one thing that Chevy has been relatively slow in releasing information about, probably to build some excitement. Well, it worked! Many of our customers can't wait to see what the Equinox adds to its technology lineup this year.
