The current generation of the Chevy Equinox rolled out in 2010 and has been largely unchanged since. Do not think that means this is an outmoded and obsolete vehicle, however. On the contrary, the Equinox has continued with a proven and popular design, and the 2017 model follows in that tradition.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox adds a number of new features to its design, including two exciting cosmetic packages: The Midnight package and the Sport package.
• The Midnight package gives the Equinox a sleek cosmetic upgrade, with all-black wheels and paint along with a black leather interior.
• The Sport package delivers the same black wheels and paint but substitutes white exterior paint with sharp black accents.
Drivers can choose between a four-cylinder or a V6 engine on the 2017 Equinox. The standard inline-four engine is a bit weaker than some offered by others in this class, but it balances this out by achieving an excellent 36 mile per gallon gas mileage. Front and all-wheel drive transmissions are available.
The optional V6 engine sacrifices some fuel economy for more power and a quicker throttle response. The V6 deliver 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque, allowing the Equinox to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox offers a wealth of choices when it comes to powertrains and trim levels. The Equinox also has four trim packages, ranging from the base level L, through the LS and LT and the top-of-the-line Premier package. The above-mentioned Midnight and Sport cosmetic options can be added to any trim level.
The 2017 Equinox has an elegant, understated exterior. It has a low nose, a smoothly sloped cabin area, and clean lines from front to back. Inside, the vehicle boasts a well-designed, spacious cabin that seats five comfortably. There are numerous conveniently placed storage spaces, including two large cargo wells and a retractable cargo cover. The Equinox is an excellent vehicle for family trips and vacations.
The IIHS rated the Equinox a top safety pick and gave it “Good” ratings across the board. All models have front and side airbag systems to keep occupants safe.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox drives extremely well. The ride stays smooth and quiet, even on bumpy roads, and the steering is both tight and responsive. The four-cylinder engine isn’t quite as responsive as some drivers might like, but the optional V6 packs plenty of power for those looking for a bit more acceleration.
Overall, the 2017 Equinox has a lot to offer. Storage space, ride quality, and tons of options make this a great choice for those in the market for a compact crossover SUV.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Chevrolet Equinox
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Chevrolet Equinox invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Chevrolet Equinox Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
