2007 Chevrolet Equinox review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Chevrolet launched a brand-new midsize sport utility vehicle as an early 2005 model. The Canadian-built Equinox, which shares its platform with the Saturn Vue, is Chevrolet’s first crossover SUV; it combines SUV styling with a car-based, unibody design.

For 2007, the Equinox receives an upgraded interior as well as some additional standard safety equipment. Trim levels include the base LS and uplevel LT.

A 3.4-liter V-6 teams with a five-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. Electrically assisted rack-and-pinion steering is installed.

Exterior
Chevrolet says the Equinox takes a fresh, memorable approach to SUV design, aimed at many types of customers. The Equinox rides a 112.5-inch wheelbase and features a wide stance: 71.4 inches overall, with a 61.6-inch front track width.

The Equinox stands 67 inches tall and measures 188.8 inches long overall. The unitized body incorporates full-length frame rails and a safety cage. Coil springs are used in the independent rear suspension.

LS models have body-colored fascias and 16-inch steel wheels, while LTs gain body-colored mirrors and 16-inch alloy wheels. Seventeen-inch wheels are optional. Chevrolet says the Equinox’s steering feel, ride and handling have been enhanced for 2007.

Interior
Extensive changes for 2007 include revisions to the instrument cluster, steering wheel, climate controls and radio buttons. A standard vehicle information center features 20 vehicle information and personalization functions.

Multi-Flex rear seating promises flexibility for passengers and cargo; the split, folding rear seat slides nearly 8 inches. Combined with the flat-folding front passenger seat, the Equinox can carry extra-long cargo. A height-adjustable cargo shelf with plastic on one side and carpeting on the other serves as both a security cover and a picnic table. The front console contains hidden storage compartments, and integrated storage bins are installed in the rear.

General Motors’ OnStar communication system and several audio upgrades — including XM Satellite Radio and a six-CD changer with MP3 capability — are optional, as are heated front seats, leather upholstery and a moonroof.

Under the Hood
Chevrolet’s 3.4-liter V-6 produces 185 horsepower and 210 pounds-feet of torque and drives a five-speed automatic transmission. When equipped with an optional towing package, the Equinox can haul up to 3,500 pounds. Optional on-demand all-wheel drive delivers power to the front wheels during normal conditions but sends power to the rear wheels if front-wheel slippage is detected. Traction control is standard.

Safety
Additional safety features for 2007 include standard four-wheel-disc brakes with ABS, as well as an electronic stability system. Optional side curtain airbags now include a sensor to maintain inflation longer in the event of a rollover. Daytime running lights are standard.
