2013 Chevrolet Equinox
2013 Chevrolet Equinox

New For 2013

A new 3.6-liter V-6 provides an increase of 37 hp and 50 lb-ft of torque with no detriment to fuel economy. The optional Chevrolet MyLink integrates Pandora and Stitcher internet radio and can be controlled via a Bluetooth-enabled phone using voice and touch-screen controls. MyLink with navigation is optional on 2LT and LTZ trims. Forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning are now available with either engine.


Although the Equinox is not the freshest vehicle in the burgeoning mid-size-crossover segment, it nonetheless remains an excellent choice. The cabin is largely finished in textured plastics and soft leather, and the wraparound dash, upright center stack, and cool blue lighting give it a contemporary ambience that is on par with that of many luxury makes. As for exterior design, the Equinox is arguably the most handsome vehicle in its class. Its sweptback headlights and sharply raked windshield impart a dramatic profile that, along with several aerodynamic aids, helps the Equinox achieve a 0.36 drag coefficient. The base engine is a refined 182-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Although it’s no powerhouse, it provides adequate power and, with ample use of the “Eco” mode—a fuel-saving setting selected using a button on the dash that adjusts transmission shift points—it can return a class-leading 32 mpg on the highway. The Equinox can also be had with a new 301-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 that is a must-have if you plan to tow. Both engines have direct injection and variable valve timing and are mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic. Although the Equinox comes well equipped, there are many ways to upgrade its look and content, including eighteen- or nineteen-inch wheels, a Pioneer eight-speaker stereo, all-wheel drive, and a power liftgate.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard. A backup camera is optional on the LT and standard on the LTZ. Lane-departure warning is optional on the LTZ. OnStar is standard and includes Automatic Crash Response free for six months.

Key Competitors For The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox

  • Ford Escape
  • Honda CR-V
  • Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Toyota RAV4
2012 Honda CRV Front Three Quarter View
The Honda CR-V managed to outsell the Ford Escape by less than 900 units in October, taking the compact crossover crown with 20,295 examples sold. Bumped down to second, the Escape was good for 19,832 units sold, while the Chevrolet Equinox remained steady with the bronze, selling 15,387 CUVS.
2013 Chevrolet Equinox Rear Three Quarter
Still unable to reach an agreement on labor terms with Detroit's Big Three automakers, the Canadian Auto Workers Union is making preparations for a strike starting Monday, September 17. That could spell disaster for Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors, all of which build popular models at Canadian manufacturing plants. If a strike does occur, it could halt production of at least 17 vehicles assembled in Canada -- and production halts at powertrain facilities there could further affect U.S.-built cars. The CAW represents about 193,000 workers across Canada.
2013 Ford Escape Side View
The Ford Escape takes the compact crossover crown once again, beating the Honda CR-V for a second month in a row. While the Escape sold better than the CR-V, sales were actually down compared to July 2011. The Chevy Equinox gave the CR-V a run for its money last month, coming in a close third.
2013 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 3 6 Front Left View
Chevrolet is sticking to the old adage "if it's not broken, don't fix it" for the 2013 Equinox, its third-best-selling model, which topped 20,000 sales in May alone. The update for 2013 may not be visual, but it brings with it three welcome new additions: General Motors' ubiquitous 3.6-liter V-6, Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system, and a new set of dual-flow dampers for the front suspension. This may not sound like much, but it has given Chevy's small crossover a whole new character.
