2016 Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet Equinox is a mid-size crossover which was originally launched in 2004 as 2005 year model. So far, we have seen two generations of this model, but that is going to be changed because 2016 Equinox will come as third-generation model. The concept of this vehicle was already presented, but it is expected that serial production will start in early 2015. New model will come with many changes. Beside standard thing like improved visual appearance, new hi-tech features and mechanical improvements, 2016 Chevrolet Equinox will undergo one additional, very important change – weight reduction, which will provide not only better performance, but also better results in terms of fuel economy.

The Chevrolet Equinox 2016 will get all new body, so overall look will be much more modern and attractive. Beside standard visual improvements, new model will also go on diet. Thanks to the use of lightweight materials, 2016 Chevrolet Equinox will be significantly lighter. This will ensure better fuel economy, so new model won’t be only fancy looking, but also very economic. According to some information that we have, many technical solutions from 2016 Equinox will be used in new GMC Terrain and new Buick’s crossover.

There is still no official information about 2016 Chevrolet Equinox engines. However, current line-up will probably be replaced with some new engines. According to some speculations, the base model will be powered with 2.5 4-cylinder which outputs 196 horses and 186 lb-ft of max torque. There will be also some more powerful variants in offer, but we don’t know what engines will be used. We also expect to see 2016 Equinox in some hybrid plug-in variant, which will probably be powered by some 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, combined with some electric motors. It is still unknown will current 6-speed gearbox remain or will it be replaced with some new, more advanced transmission.
