Equinox made this list simply because it's a terrific all-around crossover with gobs of cargo room and a comprehensive array of popular amenities, such as OnStar telematics and MyLink with its systems interface. It consolidates operation of the six-speaker audio system, connected smartphone, App suite and so forth into a seven-inch color touch-screen.
With the sliding, reclining 60/40 split rear seat in place, there is still 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Front- and rear-seat passengers have room to stretch out.
Turning the front wheels, when you don't opt for all-wheel drive, is a 182-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. A backup camera is standard.
