2019 Chevrolet Equinox review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

Fresh off a redesign for the 2018 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox compact SUV seats up to five people and offers a choice of three engines: a 170-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder, a 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 137-hp, turbo-diesel 1.6-liter four-cylinder. The Equinox is available with front- or all-wheel drive and competes with the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape and Jeep Cherokee.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

Adaptive cruise control and front pedestrian braking are available for the high-end Premier trim level. Both the standard backup camera and available 360-degree camera system now deliver high-definition views. Four USB ports are now standard.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox Are Most Important?

The Equinox's standard 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system includes Bluetooth streaming audio as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. It also has 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) to keep your family connected on the go. Options include a power liftgate, power sunroof, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Available active safety features include blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change alert, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox?

The current Equinox is smaller than its predecessor, now closer in size to other compact SUVs. We like its available gas engines, intuitive multimedia systems and child-safety-seat accommodations, but visibility and front-seat comfort could be better. Many active safety features are reserved for higher-end trims, too.

Transmission went out at 70K miles

I bought a 2019 Equinox Premier after owning two Ford Edge Limiteds. The interior of this thing is great. All the bells and whistles. It had about 70k miles on it which is more than I like, but it also had a clean CarFax and I take good care of my cars so I figured even with a few more miles I could get several years out of her. I had this vehicle 5 weeks, drove it less than 1200 miles, and the transmission went out. Left me stranded at night on the side of a highway. I've NEVER had this happen with another car (I've owned 3 Fords, a Nissan, and a Pontiac back in the day). I'll never buy a Chevy again.


Love my Equinox

My second Equinox. Love the size and performance for around town. Just wish there was air vents in the back seat. The interior is well layed out.


Poor gas mileage

Hesitates when gears shift. Outdated design. Bought a rouge only got the Chevy equinox as they didn't have a rogue I liked in stock. Poor, poor gas mileage
