2019 Chevrolet Equinox Lt Interior Redesign and Concept

The clean, straightforward design of the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox Lt Interior is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

NEW FOR 2019

After a complete redesign for 2018, the Equinox will probably not receive any significant updates for the 2019 model year.

TRIM LEVELS AND FEATURES

The Equinox is positioned above the smaller Trax and below the larger Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban in Chevrolet’s crossover and SUV lineup.

The 2018 Equinox trims should carry over into 2019 and include the base L, LS, LT, and Premier. Standard features on the base trim for 2018 included 17-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, OnStar Guidance, and heated and power adjustable side view mirrors. The top Premier trim comes standard with 19-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, heated front seats, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, a hands-free liftgate, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen.

PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY

The 2018 powertrains should carry over and include a 170-hp 1.5-liter turbo-four, a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel I-4 that produces 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic backs the 1.5-liter turbo-four while the 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine and the 2.0-liter turbo-four uses a nine-speed automatic. All powertrains come standard with front-wheel drive and are available with all-wheel drive. In 2018, EPA-rated fuel economy numbers ranged from 22/28 mpg city/highway with the AWD 2.0-liter turbo-four to 28/39 mpg with the front-drive turbodiesel.

SAFETY

Driver-assist safety tech will likely continue into 2019 unchanged. Chevrolet’s safety tech on the Equinox includes forward collision alert, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with lane change alert, and rear-cross traffic alert. We hope the automatic emergency braking system is improved to a wider range of speeds.

A surround vision camera system and a rear seat reminder feature are also available on the Equinox. OnStar also offers several safety services including automatic crash response, emergency services, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle assistance.

TECHNOLOGY

The Equinox’s tech will likely carry over into 2019 with a standard 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that can be upgraded to an 8.0-inch touchscreen that adds SiriusXM satellite radio and an optional navigation system. The upgraded audio system is an optional seven-speaker Bose system. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is available and the myChevrolet mobile app allows the owner to start/stop the engine, lock/unlock the doors, honk the horn and flash the lights. The Teen Driver feature allows owners to monitor the driving characteristics of a new driver.

WHAT WE THINK

In 2018 Motor Trend SUV of the Year testing, we liked the Equinox’s spacious back seat and competent road manners and handling. The optional 2.0-liter turbo-four provided plenty of power and the nine-speed transmission shifts well. However, we didn’t like the poorly placed, dimly lit, and driver-selectable all-wheel-drive switch or “its suspect build quality: The door sheet metal flexes if you gently brush against it, the hatchback creaks when opened and closed, and a weird, booming sound emanates from the back of the cabin at highway speeds.”

“The competition has already set a benchmark far ahead of the Equinox,” we concluded.

KEY COMPETITORS:

Toyota RAV4
Honda CR-V
Subaru Forester
Kia Sportage
Ford Escape

The best value in 2019 Chevrolet Equinox Lt Interior is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
