Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
