Chevrolet is probably the leading maker of crossovers SUVs. Basically, it’s ranked among the top companies in the world in sales and quality. Since 1911, Chevy has always been there to offer top class crossovers and other kinds of cars. The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is one of these smart cars. Generally, this is the SUV cross-over of choice! In any way, it is a perfect modification of the previous models. If you ever checked on the 2016 Chevy Equinox, and the previous Equinox generations, you most likely have a clue about the latest model in the series. The former was a market mover indeed but the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is expected to do even better. In this regard, Chevrolet has attempted fixing issues and problems raised about the previous models. Here are some of the specifications of the car.
2017 Chevrolet Equinox – Exterior and Interior Design
In proportions, this Chevy Equinox is nearly the exact same as the 2016 model. The only distinction, maybe, is in the rear, size and front. It has alloy wheels – 17-inches- on a LT and LTZ 18-inch tires. This makes it hard for it to skid at any speed, literally. Seemingly, nothing much has been altered to the size. Just like the other Equinoxes, the 2017 Chevy is a 4-door 188.8 in (4,796 mm) long, 71.4 in (1,814 mm) wide and measures 68.3–69.3 in (1,735–1,760 mm) in height. The rear of the car has startling LED tail lights. The front has powerful projector LED headlights that will clear the way even in solid darkness. In addition to this, the SUV is sleek and buoyant. The streamline design is very fundamental in allowing the car to cut through the wind in high-speed.
The interior is well fitted with two sets of seats meaning it could have 5 people aboard. But most amazingly, the Chevy could be fitted with a baby’s seat anytime! The interior is expected to be spacious and full of technological enhancements. According to sources close to the makers of the Chevy, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox will have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, Touch screen radio and many other amazing technologies some of which are meant to offer safer driving.
2017 Chevrolet Equinox – The new Engine and Performance
There are way so many cars on the market that have better engines than most of the Chevy’s. But this one has as well paid close attention to mishaps that rocked the previous generations. The engine will be a V6, bearing the torrent, a DOHC 16-valve inline-4, that will have aluminum blocks as well as direct injection. For this reason, they have fitted standard and up-level turbo engines respectively. Varieties with the standard engine will have an 182-horsepower/2.4-liter Ecotec 14 LTG. This is obviously a high performance of course not that of a Ferrari! Thus, the Chevy Equinox 2016 will be economical in fuel because it will ride on 20/29 mpg on a city highway, just like the 2016 varieties.
2017 Chevrolet Equinox – Price, Release Date
Probably, with these kinds of amazing specs, most people would tend to shy away from purchasing the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox. But that should never be the case. The market price of the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox has never been the same as that of the Lamborghini hey! The previous models have gone for about $30,000, with a factory price of about $28,000. The New Chevy is not expected to very much. Many pundits believe that its price could fall at a stone throw from its previous brands. After the release of the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox in late 2016, the price will be around $35,000. The new 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is joining a market that is arguably monitored closely by its predecessors as well as those from other companies. The Kia Sorrento and CR-V Honda will, of course, give this the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox a run for the money!
