Chevy Equinox: Engines & Towing Specs
The Chevy Equinox comes with two engine options, each of which pairs with its own unique set of trims. With the standard 1.5L, you’ll be able to tow up to 1,500 pounds. With the available 2.0L, you’ll be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
- Standard EcoTec 1.5L Turbocharged Engine: With GCWR rating of 5,247 pounds when paired with a FWD drivetrain, and a 5,467 pound rating on the AWD drivetrain, this engine allows you to tow up to1,500 pounds.
- Available 2.0L Turbocharged Engine: This available Equinox engine boasts a GCWR rating of 7,694 pounds. When you opt for the 2.0L over the 1.5L engine and also add on the Chevy Equinox towing package, it gives the Equinox a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
Can the Chevy Equinox Tow a Trailer?
Reading about the Chevy Equinox towing capacity or Equinox specs doesn’t always give you a clear picture of what the Chevy Equinox engine options are capable of on Carol Stream treats. If you have a trailer, and you’re wondering if it’s in the Equinox’s wheelhouse to tow it, know that Chevy recommends you not tow anything that is more than 10 to 15% of your Equinox’s GCWR (gross combination weight rating). Here are some other things that are useful to know:
- For Camping: Opt for the 1.5L engine, and your Equinox will be able to tow a teardrop camper. Upgrade to the 2.0L engine options, and you’ll be fine hitching up an Airstream Caravel.
- For Working: Opt for the available 2.0L, and you can tow a Big Tex Trailer’s 35SV utility trailer (77 inch x 10-14 feet) and fill it to capacity.
