22 12 2008

The all-new 2010 Chevrolet Equinox builds on the previous model with more of what segment buyers are looking for across pretty much every aspect. Better interior, better styling, better engines, better transmissions and smarter features.


You can bet GM will be trumpeting from the heavens the new Equinox’s 30 MPG highway rating when optioned with the lead insertion 2.4 liter four cylinder and pattern six velocity transmission, but we’ve seen the little SUV in the sheetmetal and we’re cheerful to say the Equinox isn’t just a fuel reduction chart. GM plans to unveil 2010 Chevy Equinox and some new products at next month’s Detroit Auto Show.

The new Equinox takes styling inspiration primarily from the Chevy Malibu, but there hints of other cars in the prepare as well. Outside we see the Equinox gets the new Chevy face, first seen on the Malibu, with a bit more curvaceousness in the headlights and a bit of specially chrome around the fog lamps. The sides get a heaping helping of styling with big fender flares over your variety of 16, 17 or 18 edge wheels, and a spicy shoulder line runs front to back to link everything together. The draft of the doors has been changed so they continue all the way although the rocker panel, virtually eliminating stepover height.

From a mechanical standpoint, the Equinox will come with a duo of engines, both fair conjure order shot technology and fuel sipping credentials for their magnitude — there’s even an “Eco” fasten on the axis console which changes the fuel mapping and budge points to give you a luxury mile per gallon or two. You get your harvest of a 2.4 liter inline four with 185 HP and a 3.0 liter V6 with 255 HP. The I4 puts down 21 city, 30 mpg highway, while the V6 is a bit more voracious at 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway. Both of those engines get backed with their own pattern six hurry transmissions with front turn need yardstick, the helm ability elective.

Nobody export in this segment cares about those greasy bits still. The interior, on the other hand, is something that will plead consumer attentions. Again, the Equinox takes inspiration from the Malibu inside, with an analogous dash organize, contrasting supplies and edging, and abundant minutiae. Amusingly still, it also takes its gauges from the perennially just around the angle 2010 Camaro. GM is also cute excited about the ambient lighting peppering the interior, although lighting never genuinely has rung our timer. What is timer-ringing are the seats, the gadgets the storeroom and the freedom.

The seats are supportive and comfortable, with excellent leather and stacks of adjustability to get everyone where they want to be, obviously we can’t make a call on how good they are after four hours of thrust time. Between those front seats is a vast storage bin untold enough for a link of satisfied bulk laptops and houses the USB harbor and a 12 volt might haven. Front and back passengers get enormous amounts of freedom, and with the trice row care the sliding and reclining 60/40 break bench it’s practically limo-like in the rear. Order the elective independent dual rear flip-up DVD players and you’ll never hear a peep from the back. Even with the rear seats pushed all the way back, goods space is downright generous. And getting to that cargo locale gets cunning as the power high gate is now programmable. Silly pending you think about it — you can encode the limit prospect height so it doesn’t smash into your low clearance garage door.
