Equinox being known to be the among the top of Chevrolet sellers are out here once more with the debut of the brand new mid size SUV 2016 Chevrolet Equinox that is coming with a re done front end with a finely polished interior. Full Chevrolet redesign is just one year away.
Changes coming on the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox are not extra ordinary, but most certainly they are noticeable. At the front end is where you will notice most of the things changed when it comes to the exterior. You will see a new projector headlight and LED signature lighting. For the LT and LTZ models, they have daytime running lights. The LTZ model has new fog lights and a grille that is updated and more larger compare to that of 2015 model. To raise the standards of the LT and LTZ, an exclusive chrome trim is introduced on their new grille. The sides really do not have much changes except for the 17” and 18” updated standard wheels for LT and LTZ trims in that order. Optional 17” rollers are availed for LS trim.
At the back we will fairly easily perceived updates little common including dual element taillight, new decorative design for the license plate and a bumper that is lower housing the new edition of the exhaust on V6 models with the new chrome strip for LTZs trim lower bumper. But all these new update still date back to familiar SUV. The roofline and all the proportions are lifted from the 2015 model. Maybe the next Chevy generation release will be better.
The outside changes of Chevrolet Equinox 2016 can obviously be seen, but the inside require a little bit close inspection to notice the changes. The gear shifter has gained class in this model with chrome trimming as the electronic selector buttons have been elevated to a level higher than the gear shifter. L and LS trims have fabric upgraded in the interior with newer color options not forgetting the 7” colored touch radio with a standard rear view cam (L and LS). Side blind and rear cross traffic alerts are optional new features on the LT and LTZ trims. The 31.4 cubic feet cargo room and 63.7 cubes space with folded seats remain the same as that of the 2015.
The engine compartment remains totally unchanged from the 2015. A 2.4 liter, 4 cylinder remains the same with 182 horsepower produced at 6,700 rpm with 172 pound feet torque at 4900 revolutions per minute. The similar optional engine for the 2015, a 3.6 liter V-6 that rotates out 301 horses still stands. On the highway it is expected to do 29 mpg, 20mpg in the city and 23mpg combined when all wheel drives are added together.
