The current-generation Equinox was introduced in 2018 as the third generation of this popular family crossover. The Equinox meets a continually-growing segment of buyers looking for a midsize crossover on the slightly smaller side and with a comfortable interior and affordable price tag.
For the 2020 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox sees a couple of changes, starting with package changes for the trim levels to better match consumer needs. Safety equipment such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are now standard on all 2020 Equinox model trims. Finally, Chevy decided to drop the diesel engine amid trouble with certifications and a low customer interest.
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox remains one of the lowest priced options in its segment, a big attractant to customers for the model since its introduction. As with previous years, the base model is largely a “paper only” trim that must be special ordered. The extremely low price advertised as the base manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Equinox should thus be taken with a big grain of salt.
The 2020 Equinox is a five seat, large compact crossover. Four trim choices are available, starting with the special order model L and rising through the LS, LT, and Premier trims. Two engine choices are available and both front-wheel and all-wheel drive are options.
