Price and Dimensions

Edmunds: “If you’re searching for a roomy two-row crossover at a reasonable price, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox may still merit a closer look.”

Indeed, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox boasts quite a bit of room for the price. This compact crossover SUV has an MSRP starting at $23,100. Behind the rear seats, you can expect 31.5 cubic feet, but cargo volume is customizable thanks to the 60/40-split bench. Overall, you’ll have access to 63.7 cubic feet for storage when the back seat is folded flat.


The Car Connection: “[The Chevrolet Equinox] offers a range of powertrains, including front- or all-wheel drive, [and] it can be fuel efficient.”

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox has two powertrain options for you, including a 2.4L four-cylinder machine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This setup makes 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, as well as an expected 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with all-wheel drive. Also available is a 3.6L V6 engine that’s mightier than its four-cylinder counterpart. It produces a robust 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque and is able to reach an impressive fuel economy at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with front-wheel drive.


Car Gurus: “This five-door, five-passenger compact crossover still offers family-friendly dependability, affordability, and all-around competence, despite few changes from the current version.”

Family-friendly is an accurate way to describe the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, especially in terms of safety. Every model comes with a rearview camera and the OnStar telematics system that boasts emergency communication functionality for automatic crash notifications, helps locate a stolen vehicle, and much more. You can also equip upper trims with the likes of rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision alerts.
