The all-new 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact crossover that blends distinctive design with outstanding efficiency. A new, 2.4L direct injection engine helps the Chevrolet Equinox deliver expected best-in-segment estimated highway fuel economy of 30 mpg (EPA certification pending) — a 25percent improvement over the previous model. Chevrolet expects nearly two-thirds of customers will choose the efficient, 2.4L engine.
The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox draws its exterior design inspiration from the Chevrolet Malibu sedan and Traverse crossover; and like those vehicles, the new Equinox complements its styling with attention to detail and unexpected features.
The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox goes on sale in mid-2009. It is available in LS, LT and LTZ trim, with available all-wheel-drive. Two new engines are offered, each with fuel-saving direct injection and variable valve timing technology. A new 2.4L Ecotec direct injected I-4 engine is estimated at 182 horsepower (135 kW), which delivers an estimated 30 mpg highway, 21 mpg city (EPA certification pending) and a new 3.0L DOHC direct injected V-6 engine is estimated at 255 horsepower (190 kW), which delivers an estimated 25 mpg highway, 18 mpg city (EPA certification pending). Driving range for both engines is more than 500 miles (800 km), for less-frequent fill-ups.
