Our Take

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox?

The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV that competes with the Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V. It's offered in LS, LT w/1LT, LT w/2LT, and LTZ trim levels. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all trims are available with all-wheel drive.

What's New on the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox?'

For 2014, LTZ trim levels now come standard with chrome wheels.

How Does the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox Compare to Other Compact SUVs?

The Equinox offers exceptional interior fit, finish and passenger space. In an unusual trick for any SUV, sliding the rear seats back opens up a spacious 39.9 inches of rear legroom, outclassing the Kia Sportage (37.9), Honda CR-V (38.3) and Ford Escape (36.8). Unfortunately, it's not such a shining star in terms of maximum cargo space; with 63.7 cubic feet, it falls behind the CR-V (70.9) and Escape (67.8) but has more than the Sportage (54.6). It makes up for that, though, with its adjustable second-row seats and a variety of convenient storage nooks.

What Features in the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox Are Most Important?

The 2014 Equinox comes standard with a 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It's offered with an optional 301-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 that's also mated to the six-speed automatic. Both engines are capable of running on regular gas or E85 ethanol.

Significant standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth seats and a reclining 60/40-split backseat with fore-aft adjustment. Notable available features include a power sunroof, power liftgate, heated side mirrors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear entertainment system, Pioneer premium stereo, Chevy's MyLink infotainment system and automatic climate control.

Standard safety features include an electronic stability system, antilock brakes, GM's OnStar communication system (subscription required), side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags. Optional safety features include a backup camera, rear park assist, lane departure warning and forward collision alert.

Should I Buy the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox?

The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox's rear seat is a game-changer for growing families. Not only can it recline and slide forward and back up to 8 inches, it also splits 60/40, opening up an impressive array of seating and cargo options. The result is a vehicle that, while not as spacious as all its competitors on paper, feels more spacious on account of its versatility. The only thing that falls short is the size of the doors; it would be nice if they were wider to make it easier to take advantage of all that configurability.

The 2014 Equinox isn't a one-trick pony, either. In addition to offering tremendous utility, the SUV's interior looks and feels nice, with a variety of little details (like contrast stitching in the LTZ trim's leather upholstery) that give it a slightly upscale air. Combined with extremely pleasant ride quality and strong fuel economy ratings, the Chevrolet Equinox is absolutely worth your consideration.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

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.
