The 2017 Chevy Equinox has been redesigned and is a third generation vehicle that will certainly prove to be a very popular car. This new offering from GM will ride on a modified platform. This same platform is also being used on the Chevy Cruze. However, the platform for the Equinox will be lighter as well as a tad smaller.
2017 Chevy Equinox Engine Specs
GM has yet to provide concrete details about the engine that is to power up the Equinox. However, a turbo engine will probably be used and this could be the 2.4-liter. A V6 engine may be done away with and no replacement for this engine is planned. However, the carmaker may go in for a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 301 hp and 272 lb ft of torque.
2017 Chevy Equinox Exterior and Interior Changes
The carmaker has also not provided any concrete details about what it plans to do with the interiors and exteriors of the car. We expect the carmaker to go with the 4G LTE integration, which will be along the lines of what is already being offered in the rest of the Chevy line of vehicles. The top speed of the Chevy Equinox is approximately 210 kilometers per hour.
This new offering from GM has been improved upon from the last model. There is much that has yet to be done to the new 2017 Chevy Equinox. The grill for example will get a new shape and there will be some fresh trims as well as new headlights. The headlights at the front look very beautiful at night and the bumpers are designed to provide total protection. The Chevy Equinox rides on 24-inch alloy wheels and these wheels look very impressive because they have sharp spokes. The chassis is also very light as it is made out of low-density carbon as well as aluminum.
We could not see what the outside of the car looks like but we suspect that the car has been designed to look very gorgeous and will look much better than the present model. The cabin has undergone some serious redesigning. However, GM does not plan to make any changes to the dimensions. Even so, the cabin will offer more space for passenger as well as cargo. This has been done to make the Equinox more competitive against its main European and Japanese competition.
On the inside the 2017 Chevy Equinox has a cabin that is equipped with dual air climate control and for safety of the occupants the carmaker has provided airbags. Parking assists features are also available as too is a large 12-inch screen with complete GPS connectivity. A nice audio system with eight dual Dolby speakers is also available.
2017 Chevy Equinox Release Date and Price
The 2017 Chevy Equinox will probably be making its debut sometime in the beginning of 2017. This is a car that has been designed with the future in mind and it really excels in every way. It is a family car that offers a lot of benefits and advantages. The carmaker has also not provided any details regarding the price tag of the new 2017 Chevy Equinox. However, we think that GM will keep the prices in line with those of the current model.
