2013 Chevrolet EquinoxM & W Ball - Greater Kansas Metro Area, KS09/18/2016
Great styling both Exterior & Interior. One key that I think is important for all Equinox prospective buyers to check out is the optional V6 putting out 310hp. I test drove the 4 cylinder model, but it seemed sluggish in highway passing power and for times when you that little extra "boost" in town. I also feel that the V6 engine will work less hard and I should be able to put more miles on it versus the 4 cylinder. Not as bad as the old Volkswagen bus that was dangerously under-powered with a 4 cylinder engine, but the V6 won me over the 1st time I drove it. You might have to look around to find one, but it is worth it. We found ours in Ft. Worth, and had it transferred to Kansas City. Great decision!
Perfect all-around entry-level SUV
2013 Chevrolet EquinoxRick Paugh - Carmel, IN11/19/2015
This vehicle is very comfortable and easy to drive. If you have driven any other late model Chevrolet you will feel right at home. It slightly longer than other SUVs in the same class, which gives the rear passengers more room (along with the adjustable seat which helps as well). I've seen other reviewers complain about lack of power, but the Equinox has plenty. I noticed a slight drop in power after filling it with $1,000 worth of IKEA furniture, but it still handled well on the interstate. If you're comparing it to a larger SUV with a powerful V6 (or even V8) then yes, it doesn't have that much power. It's all about perspective. Comparable gas mileage to other SUVs in the same class.
Great price for a excellent car

I like the way it drives, we have a 4 cylinder with eco for gas. Great gas miles in the city have not put on the road yet. Living in Wisconsin with the cold weather it helps to have a remote start. Love the body style people notice the car when driving.
