Quick Look

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is a very straightforward family crossover that exists for one purpose only – to transport families from point A to point B. As such, it offers plenty of space and features to entertain both children and their parents. The Equinox also one of the few vehicles in this segment to offer a V6 engine, which can produce 301 horsepower.




Full Review

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is arguably one of the most sophisticated and comfortable midsize crossovers on the market. It essentially reaches its share of the market as efficiently as the Traverse reaches its own share. Its biggest perk is offering plenty of space without being overtly big – like its full-size cousin. The Equinox’s rivals include the GMC Terrain, Ford Edge and Toyota RAV4. All three put up a very decent fight, but if you’re looking for straight-up quality at an affordable price, then this should be your number one choice.

On the outside, the 2015 Equinox looks like the Traverse’s little brother. In other words, it has the same curvy profile and large, staring headlights with a hefty grille in-between. Its backside is of course much shorter than that of the Traverse, but that’s only because it’s missing a third seating row. Overall, this look isn’t anything new under the sun, so if you’ve seen any of the older Chevy crossovers – either the Equinox or Traverse – then this one won’t surprise you at all.

On the inside, the most notable attribute that the Equinox displays is the absence of a third seating row. In spite of that, it somehow manages to be more spacious than the majority of similar crossovers on the market. The front seats – the particularly the driver’s seat – are almost perfect, offering an upright and supportive position, which provides plenty of comfort on longer trips. The top LTZ trim also provides cross-stitched dual-tone perforate leather for a more luxurious feeling. The biggest attraction of the crossover is the presence of adult-sized backseats, which provide ample headroom and legroom even for tallest individuals. As a bonus, back passengers also get an adjustable seatback for rake. Cargo area is huge as expected, and it becomes even bigger if you fold the back seats.

In terms of features, the new Chevy Equinox doesn’t disappoint either since it now uses an OnStar system that has a 4G LTE data connection and in-car WiFi network. The standard features include AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary input jack, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel as well as power locks, mirrors and windows. Optional on the LS trim are back-seat entertainment system, Bluetooth, navigation system, leather seating, heated seats, steering-wheel audio/phone controls, rearview camera, remote start and sunroof. All the models also get a touchscreen audio system with a USB port and voice-activated MyLink Connectivity system.

If you decide to look even deeper, you’ll find one of two engines under the crossover’s hood. The base one is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder, which can produce 182 horsepower, while being combined with direction injection, variable valve timing and a six-speed automatic transmission. The other engine is a 3.6-litre V6, which will give you 301 horsepower. Just like the four-cylinder, it relies on a six-speed automatic transmission to function.

So, is the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox worth your money? If you’re looking for a straightforward yet modern family crossover, then yes. Just make sure this is the kind of size you’re looking for. If your family is on the bigger side, then consider checking out the Traverse instead.

Power and Performance:

While the Equinox isn't necessarily a blast to drive, it handles well enough for its size–but its power steering is far too numb and light for our taste. Still, it remains one of the only vehicles in the segment to offer a V-6 option, which produces more than enough power to get up and go.

With a rather low first gear, for quick takeoffs, plus taller cogs for the upper gears and highway fuel efficiency, the six-speed automatic transmission covers the bases--although it's not as smooth as in other vehicles in this class. With either version, shifts can be rough, and the transmission can feel hesitant on hills or on-off throttle situations. Manual shifts can be made not though steering wheel paddle shifters or a separate gate, but through little plus or minus toggle buttons on the side of the shift knob.

The engine choice, along with a choice between front- and all-wheel drive, should give most shoppers what they want for their family needs. And if they need some added grunt for full loads and mountain grades, the 3.6-liter V-6 is smooth and very strong. It makes 301 hp; and while it's considerably thirstier than the four, you might consider it a worthwhile upgrade.

The base 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is one of the more advanced engines in its class, and with direct injection, variable valve timing, and a six-speed automatic, you can get quite a bit of real-world performance out of it--more than the 0-60 mph time of around nine seconds might suggest. Passing power is good enough even when you have some passengers; and our only issue with this engine is that its direct-injection-related clattering sounds are more prominent than in most other modern fours.

Interiors and Special Features:

As it stands now, this family-oriented crossover ute boasts a somewhat paltry 63.7 cubic feet of cargo area with the rear seats folded. The anticipated downsizing for 2015 editions, alas, threatens to cut this less-than-capacious capacity even more, while what was once better-than-average rear-seat passenger room might also be at risk.

Anyhow, standard features in the present Equinox lineup include, depending on trim selection, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, heated power-adjustable mirrors and a power liftgate outside, while cloth, premium cloth or leather upholstery, full power accessories, sliding and reclining second-row seats and Bluetooth-interfaced OnStar Directions and Connections technology are all standard inside. Cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering are also standard lineup-wide, while higher trims additionally tote rear parking sensors and memory for driver's memory settings. Manual air conditioning in lower trims is upgraded to dual-zone auto climate control in the LT2 and the LTZ, while the LT1 and higher trims also offer an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a rear-view camera and genuine leather cabin accents.

Safety features:

Finally, expect the 2015 Equinox, even in downsized form, to flaunt the usual mandated safety equipment like 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, and front and rear head airbags. Look for the OnStar emergency communications system and stolen vehicle tracking to return as well, along with daytime running lights, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm. The LT2 and LTZ, finally, should each return bearing standard front fog/driving lights, while the LTZ is expected to remain toting standard lane-departure warnings.
