2015 Chevy Equinox Changes
The major change you’ll find in the 2015 edition of the Equinox is the addition of an OnStar 4G LTE connection standard across all trim levels.

The Equinox is the very first car in its class to provide 4G LTE. This exciting new addition allows you to stay connected wherever your road takes you.
