Standard Teen Driver Technology


Coaching a new driver? Say hello to your new assistance.

Plus, an in-vehicle report card shows how they perform each trip so you can identify problem areas and coach them on improvements. 

All 2021 Equinox models now include standard Chevrolet Safety Assist, a bundle of six advanced active safety technologies that can help you detect and prevent potential hazards before they happen. Plus, this small SUV offers other safety and driver assistance features for even more added peace of mind.

*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver's responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle Owner's Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety
PERFORMANCE


All systems go.
The standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine uses the technologies of Variable Valve Timing and Direct Injection to deliver responsive performance with unexpected efficiency. The 1.5L turbo puts 170 horsepower at your command, along with 203 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard stop/start engine technology automatically shuts down the engine as you come to a stop, under certain driving conditions, and seamlessly restarts the engine when you take your foot off the brake.
 
1.5L Turbo Engine
ESTIMATED FUEL CONSUMPTION RATING OF 7.7L / 100 KM HWY

With an estimated fuel consumption rating of 7.7L / 100 km highway, the 1.5L turbo engine is a powerfully efficient choice.
 
Switchable All-Wheel Drive

Standard on Premier and available on LS and LT models, this system enhances traction and control on slippery or snow-covered roads. It allows you to travel in the more fuel-efficient FWD mode until the system prompts you to switch into AWD. Or, if you choose, you can leave switchable AWD on year-round, since the rear wheels only engage when the system senses reduced traction.
