The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox has made its official debut today on the eve of the Chicago Auto Show. It’s scheduled to go on sale this fall with a redesigned front fascia encompassing a dual-port grille and revised projector-beam headlights while the LT and LTZ models come with LED daytime running lights. It rides on fresh 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels and benefits from a tweaked rear bumper and modified taillights. The tailgate has also gone through some changes and if you order the optional V6 engine the facelifted Equinox will come with a sporty dual exhaust arrangement.
The interior cabin has been carried over from the 2015MY but Chevrolet has added more chrome trim, better upholstery and an updated center stack with a shelf. As standard equipment from now on, the Equinox gets a Color Touch infotainment system equipped with a 7-inch screen.
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is motivated by a 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine rated at 182 bhp (135 kW) & 172 lb-ft (233 Nm) or by a beefier V6 3.6-liter motor developing 301 bhp (224 kW) & 272 lb-ft (368 Nm).
