What the Critics Say

“The Chevy Equinox has always been a good contender, if not the best in class. It has ample interior room, comfortable manners, and a handsome design. It has also been attractive thanks to a price that slightly undercuts competitors.” – Kelley Blue Book

“The Equinox has a roomy five-seat interior, a user-friendly infotainment system, and a decent array of standard safety features. It's comfortable to drive on less-than-perfect pavement, and it's fairly easy to maneuver around town. The Equinox also rates highly for predicted reliability.” – U.S. News & World Report

What’s New for 2023

Changes to the proven Chevrolet Equinox are mostly minor for the 2023 model year. In terms of performance, the standard 1.5L turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder engine now produces 175 horsepower, up 5 horsepower from last year. The brake system has also been improved thanks to the arrival of a new electrically-assisted unit known as E-boost. Three new exterior colors also have been added to the lineup this year. Finally, LS models can now be optioned with either Sport and Midnight editions for 2023.
