Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet has redesigned its five-passenger crossover vehicle for the 2010 model year. Slightly shorter and wider than its predecessor, the new Equinox is available with a 255-horsepower V-6 or a new, direct-injection, 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine that posts an impressive 30 mpg on the highway. Both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission and are available with all-wheel drive. Three trim levels offer a wide range of price points and equipment. All models feature a deep center console and 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Available amenities include heated seats, automatic climate control and a power liftgate — a feature not often seen in this segment. In addition to six standard airbags, Equinox has standard electronic stability and traction control.
