2013 Chevrolet Equinox Road Test Review : Road & Travel Magazine

By Tim Healey

One way to liven up a mainstream crossover is to give it more power, and Chevy has done just that with the 2013 Equinox by dropping an optional 3.6-liter V-6 under hood to replace last year's optional 3.0-liter mill.

That's the biggest change for 2013, although the Equinox also adds Chevy's MyLink infotainment system, an available sport suspension for models with 18- or 19-inch models, some new safety features, and some new convenience and entertainment features.

Not much changed, but that didn't stop us from taking a spin anyway. Duty calls.

Features & Prices
There are three trims on Equinox: LS, LT, and LTZ. In addition to MyLink, other available features include a power liftgate, a tilt/telescope steering wheel, OnStar, Bluetooth, a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation, an engine-block heater, a sunroof, leather seats, and more.

Pricing starts at $23,755, not including the $825 destination fee.

On the Road
In addition to the V-6, the base engine is a carryover 2.4-liter four-cylinder that generates 182 horsepower. We spent our time in the 3.6, which has 301 horsepower and 272 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel-drive is standard and all-wheel-drive is optional with either engine. To continue the review, click here.
