The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes in a generous selection of four trim levels: the L, LS, LT, and Premier.

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox boasts a sleek and stylish interior. This includes not just use of high-end materials, but also a unique industrial style that stands out from the more traditional interiors found in many other compact SUVs. The 2017 Equinox also features a user-friendly infotainment center that drivers and passengers alike will enjoy.
Despite its formal designation as a compact SUV, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox SUV offers an impressive amount of comfortable seating for up to five passengers. There is plenty of legroom and headroom for even taller passengers to stretch out and feel comfortable on longer road trips, which can be hard to come by in this class of vehicle.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes with a standard four-cylinder engine (2.4-liter at 182 horsepower) across all trim levels except for the Premier. In the top Premier trim, drivers will enjoy a more powerful V6 engine (3.6-liter at 301 horsepower) for a more exciting ride. The V6 engine boasts sporty dual exhaust tips and a quick acceleration from zero to 60 mph in seven seconds flat.
Even the base L trim on the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes with a generous number of standard features. This includes Bluetooth® connectivity, a seven-inch touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, and an available 4G/Wi-Fi hotspot for easy internet connectivity on the go!
