This second-era Equinox hasn’t changed look since its mannequin-12 months 2010 introduction. Since then, it’s grow to be America’s No. 1-promoting midsize SUV.

Whether or not Chevy updates the search for 2014 or believes the present styling strong sufficient to sustain Equinox to its mannequin-year 2015 (or 2016) transition, this crossover’s fundamental profile and dimensions won’t change until its subsequent full redesign.

The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox will once more be around the median for a five-passenger midsize crossover SUV. Its wheelbase will stay longer than that of such rivals as the Ford Edge, Kia Sorento, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. That’s important as a result of wheelbase is the space between the front and rear axles and largely determines a automobile’s cabin size.

Indeed, the 2014 Equinox will once more have spacious passenger lodging, highlighted by generous back-seat legroom. The rear bench will once more slide fore and aft to favor rear passenger area or cargo room. Maximum cargo quantity would, nevertheless, stay average for the class, at about 64 cubic feet with the 60/40-break up rear seatbacks folded and a few 32 cubic ft with them upright.

The 2014 Equinox will again share its architecture with the GMC Terrain. These are crossover SUVs as a result of their construction unites physique and body into a single structure, like that of a car. Truck-based SUVs, against this, connect their body to a separate frame, a weightier, much less gas-efficient design however one better suited to heavy-obligation hauling and towing.

Chevy could tinker with the 2014 Equinox mannequin line by including a trim degree, but we’d count on a return of the base LS, quantity-promoting 1LT, higher-geared up 2LT, and high-of-the-line, leather-upholstered LTZ.

Costs for the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox weren’t introduced in time for this assessment however don’t count on them to rise substantially from mannequin-12 months 2013 levels. Chevy aims to maintain market share in section filling with fresher designs than the Equinox. Price increases that crimp sales will not be a part of the strategy.

That suggests a 2014 Chevrolet Equinox base-value range of about $25,200-$33,800. (Estimated base costs on this overview embrace the manufacturer’s vacation spot charge; Chevrolet’s charge for the 2013 Equinox was $825.)

Add about $1,750 to these base costs for AWD. And anticipate the V-6 so as to add $1,500-$1,900 to the cost of an LT or LTZ mannequin, depending on whether Chevy again requires it to be bundled with an uplevel audio system.

Amongst key choices for the 2014 Equinox, expect the navigation with Chevrolet MyLink to once more cost around $795, the dual DVD system round $1,295, and a power moonroof $900. Leather-based upholstery has been an $800 possibility for the 2LT model. 2014 Chevrolet Equinox Release Date should be available in market by autumn 2013.
