5 reasons to buy the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox

1. Versatile and practical

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox is a practical SUV that's versatile too. If your daily errands involve shuttling the kids around or heading out for groceries, you'll be well-equipped for the day with the Equinox. If your week involves a long commute, this SUV will make each journey comfortable and enjoyable thanks to the driver assist and connectivity features. And if you prefer to use your Equinox for weekend adventures with your favorite people, settle in for a great trip. You and your passengers will love the comfortable seats, space to stretch out, and ability to connect to the sound system to play your curated road trip playlist.

2. Luxury with utility

While all trims of the 2021 Equinox have something to offer, look to the Premier trim for the best of both worlds. You get style and substance here, with everything you'd expect from an SUV alongside details such as roof rails, 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, and a hands-free programmable lift gate. For 2021, you can also find several great special edition trims including the handsome Midnight Edition, which has a black grille, black interior, and black wheels.

3. Standard driver assist features

No matter what you're using your Equinox for, the standard driver assist features will give you peace of mind out on the road. You'll get automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, IntelliBeam® headlights, and more. This makes driving just that little bit easier. If you'd like an even more high-tech option, look out for available features such as adaptive cruise control—which is great for stop-start traffic—and rear park assist.

4. Plenty of space

Whether you're carrying kids, teens, or adults, there's plenty of room for everyone in the Equinox. Rear seat passengers get 39.9 inches of rear seat legroom and the ability to slightly recline their seats for optimum comfort. Look for the Premier trim if you'd like heated and ventilated front seats and heated outboard rear seats. In the back, you can lower the 60/40 split-folding rear seats for a maximum of 63.9 cu-ft of space. Great news if you've got a big DIY project coming up.

5. Stay connected 

With the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, you'll be able to connect your phone via Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto to handle calls and play music. You can also use Amazon Alexa to make voice commands in order to stream your favorite music, get directions, make calls, or change the radio station. This allows you to keep your eyes on the road at all times.
