The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox competes against small crossovers like the CR-V, but its roomy rear seat gives it a leg up, as does its optional V6 that's rare for this segment. The 2017 Equinox is an older design, however, and some newer models may offer advantages in both standard and optional features as well as safety ratings. Learn whether the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox still has the features and fuel economy to get the job done in this class.
For 2017, the Equinox's LTZ trim level is renamed Premier, while the LT trim receives two new options packages, the Midnight package (including black wheels, paint, exterior accents and interior leather trim) and the Sport package (including the same wheels, accents and leather but substituting white paint).
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a solid bet if you want a reasonably sized crossover SUV with plenty of backseat space. You can also upgrade to a powerful V6 engine, which is an unusual treat in this class. Let's see if this veteran player still has what it takes.
