When you think of a dependable SUV that comes well-equipped with all the bells and whistles to elevate your trips, odds are, the 2021 Chevy Equinox will cross your mind.

At Maguire Family of Dealerships, we want to help drivers in the Ithaca, Trumansburg, Watkins Glen, Syracuse, and Baldwinsville, NY, areas transform that thought into reality. To learn more about one of Chevy's most beloved models, continue reading our review of the 2021Equinox.

Equinox Trim Levels

If you've decided that the 2021 Equinox is the SUV for you, you'll have the choice between four unique trim levels.

Starting with the front-wheel drive (FWD) L trim, the Equinox also comes available with switchable all-wheel drive (AWD) for the LT, LS, and Premier trims. You'll mostly see the same features across the L and LS, while the LT and Premier will both provide certain premium features like a panoramic power sunroof and available Rear Park Assist.

Equinox MPG & Performance

While the Equinox has made some upgrades from last year's model, there are some aspects Chevy keeps consistent. One of those-and arguably the most notable-is its impeccable fuel efficiency.

Across each FWD trim, the Equinox earns an EPA-estimated 26 city/31 highway MPG that'll keep you on the road and away from the pump. Even with AWD, the Equinox's fuel economy doesn't differ much, seeing an EPA-estimated 25 city/30 highway MPG.

Each Equinox also features a standard 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, capable of reaching up to 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. So, while you'll be reaching your destination efficiently, you'll still experience a swift and smooth ride along the way.

Additionally, if your trip calls for a little more luggage than expected, the Equinox has you covered with a towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds When properly equipped. With the proper equipment, the LT and Premier trims can tow up to an astounding 3,500 pounds.

Equinox Technology, Comfort, & Convenience

Packed with attractive technological features like 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capability, standard Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and even select availability for built-in Amazon Alexa, the Equinox will have no problem keeping you and the relentless minds in the back seat entertained and informed on the road.

Utilize the myChevrolet App to take advantage of Remote Access, Vehicle Management, the Trailer Load Calculator and Light Test, and Energy Assist in the 2021 Equinox.

 You'll find no shortage of space in the Equinox for you and your crew, with up to 40.9 inches of legroom in the front and 39.9 inches in the back row.

Courtesy of a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, you can make good use of up to 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Access that space with ease using the all-too-convenient Hands-Free Gesture liftgate of the Premier. There's even a brilliantly hidden storage space under the rear cargo floor for some smaller items like sleeping bags or blankets for your colder camping trips.

Equinox Safety

At the end of the day, on top of all those fancy features, the Equinox's primary goal is to get you and your passengers on and off the road safely. Thanks to the Chevy Safety Assist suite of safety features, the Equinox takes no shortcuts when it comes to passenger protection.

Some of the intuitively smart safety features you'll see in the Equinox include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Vision Camera
  • OnStar® Services
