An "equinox" refers to those days of the year that are evenly split between night and daylight, shifting from winter to spring and from summer to autumn. It is no wonder, then, that Chevrolet named this model after this biannual event, given that the 2024 Chevy Equinox demonstrates this kind of perfect balance in design, performance, and the features it comes with.
No matter what you are looking for in your next small crossover SUV, the Equinox is an amazing choice that offers a fantastic driving experience, surrounding you with plenty of space inside to take advantage of and great features that ensure you will enjoy your time behind the wheel. For starters, the engine is a snappy 1.5L Turbo I-4 that delivers 175 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque, giving you plenty of power for such a compact vehicle. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and provides excellent fuel economy, letting you stay on the road longer and get to where you need to go with fewer stops for gas.
Although every Chevy Equinox model looks fantastic, what can really elevate the design and beauty of this vehicle is one of the available special editions. Whether you like the sleek style of the Redline Edition or the dramatic impression made by the Midnight Edition, these options both elevate what the Equinox delivers. Even more remarkable, however, are the kinds of fantastic features and options that you will find within the 2024 Equinox, providing you with a great driving experience.
The available 8.0-inch infotainment display looks stunning and makes it easy to keep track of navigation, media, and other relevant information. The Premier trim, in particular, takes things to the next level with heated seating, a heated steering wheel, and a wireless charging dock for smart devices. Perhaps best of all, the Chevy Safety Assist suite of advanced safety technologies comes standard on every Equinox, which includes a Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and much, much more
It is easy to think of the outside of a vehicle as a collection of aesthetic options that merely "make pretty" a robust chassis. In reality, the exterior design of your ride can affect performance, how much you enjoy driving each day, and a wide range of movement and impressions. You deserve to have the best driving experience possible. The Chevy Equinox looks gorgeous from the get-go, even if you choose the starting model and standard options, and it sails down roads without buffeting the wind.
With the 2024 model year, the Equinox can look better than ever, thanks to some new exterior colors that include Riptide Blue Metallic and Lakeshore Blue Metallic, both of which look stunning and provide you with more ways to customize your Equinox. If you want something a little different, consider the Redline Edition, available for the Premier trim; this special package includes 19-inch black wheels with red accents, along with unique Redline decals on the exterior mirrors, black Equinox badging with red outlines, and other accents that make it stand out.
There is the Midnight Edition for those who want something similarly dramatic—particularly if you're interested in a vehicle that makes an immediate impression on nighthawks. This special edition comes with 18-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with front and rear black bowtie emblems and body-color mirror caps. With a unique mold-in-color black grille, the Midnight Edition is a gorgeous option if you want your SUV to look as powerful and sophisticated as it feels when you drive it. Dissolve into the dark of night in the 2024 Chevy Equinox Midnight Edition.
Time and again, when drivers are asked what sorts of features are most important to them, or what they wish they had looked at more carefully when shopping previously, interior comfort and incorporated tech are both at the top of the list. These things are easy to overlook when shopping for a car, but they are things you'll increasingly notice with each passing day once you begin driving it. Fortunately, the 2024 Chevy Equinox is a surprisingly spacious option with a fantastic selection of standard and available features for you to enjoy, ensuring you have a great time no matter what trim you choose.
Inside the Equinox, you will find two rows of seating for up to five passengers, making it a great choice for small families or a few friends to come along. Up front, you get 40 inches of headroom in models without a sunroof, along with nearly 41 inches of legroom to stretch out in. Your rear passengers can enjoy roughly 38 inches of headroom—again, if you opt out of the sunroof—and nearly 40 inches of legroom. This helps ensure that everyone stays quite comfortable; plus, you can take advantage of nearly 30 cu.ft. of rear cargo volume and almost 64 cu.ft. of total cargo space—when the back seats are folded flat—to load up with larger or more numerous items.
Of course, having plenty of space to utilize is only part of what makes the Equinox such a fantastic vehicle for so many drivers. The amazing features and technology that Chevy has packed into this SUV ensure you will look forward to getting behind the wheel each day. The standard LS trim has a 7.0-inch infotainment display with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. When you combine this with a spacious interior, it will be far too easy for you to enjoy this vehicle.
You can find plenty of additional features as available options and as standards on higher trims. For example, a power liftgate is standard on the LT and other trims above the LS, with a hands-free power liftgate standard on the highest Premier trim. The LT trim also comes with heated front seats, while the Premier trim adds to this a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats as standards—although these are available options on some lower trims. You get a larger 8.0-inch infotainment display with the Premier, which is available on other lesser trims, along with a wireless charging dock for compatible smart devices.
The auto industry has not only seen advanced safety technology reap massive innovations over the last decade but has also seen these features become increasingly common. The perfect example of this is the Chevy Safety Assist suite of driver assistance features that comes standard on every 2024 Equinox. This suite includes a Forward Collision Alert to warn you of potential imminent collisions; Automatic Emergency Braking to help you avoid collisions or reduce the severity of an impact; Front Pedestrian Braking to alert you if something enters your path; and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warnings to alert you if you seem to be drifting from your lane and to help correct your course.
The Following Distance Indicator warns you when you are too close to the vehicle ahead of you; this feature is also standard on the 2024 Equinox, along with IntelliBeam auto high beams, which can intuitively switch your high beams off to avoid blinding oncoming traffic. Safety technology on the LT trim and higher has improved this year, with the Driver Confidence II Package coming as a standard addition; this package includes Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert to warn you when someone is lurking in your blind spot, as you signal to change lanes. This package also includes a Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which alerts you to enclosing objects while you're in reverse. Best of all, since this package is available for the starting LS trim, you can enjoy this extra safety technology no matter what other features you want.
