2013 Equinox brings more power to drivers
For the 2013 model year the Chevrolet Equinox remains mostly unchanged. However one nice addition Equinox fans will love is a more powerful V-6 option that gives the 2013 Equinox more pep than ever before. Other new features include new suspension tuning and greater availability of convenience and safety features.
Like previous models, the 2013 Chevy Equinox will be available in the following trims: LS, LT (1LT and 2LT) and LTZ trims.
The new V-6 engine is able to produce 301 horsepower and 272 pounds-feet of torque. This is a big upgrade than the previous engine, offering 14% more horsepower and 22% more torque than the previous 3.0-liter V-6.
One plus to the new 3.6-liter engine is that fuel-economy figures are the same as the previously offered 3.0-liter engine: the 2013 Chevy Equinox offers 17/24 mpg city/highway for front-wheel drive and 16/23 mpg city/highway for the all-wheel drive.
The new V-6 engine is available on the LT and LTZ trims. The LTZ trim also comes with a new FE2 Suspension Package with dual-flow dampers for a superior ride, as well as the option for either 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels.
The 2013 Equinox will now offer a Power Convenience Package that's available for the 2LT and LTZ trims, which add features such as an available eight-way power passenger seat and a universal garage door opener.
For the 2013 model year the 2012 Equinox's optional Safety Package is now available on the 2013 Equinox 2LT and comes standard on LTZ with either the four-cylinder or V-6. This package included features such as a forward collision alert, lane departure warning and rear park assist systems.
The 2LT and LTZ trims also offer an available rear entertainment system that has a dual-player DVD system with dual screens and two sets of wireless headphones.
The 2013 Model year will also see the return of Chevy’s MyLink, which debuted late in the 2012 model year. To take it one step further Chevrolet will offer with an optional navigation system on either the 2LT or the LTZ trims.
