What's New for the 2019 Chevy Equinox?

This 2019 Chevy Equinox iterates on the successful 2018 model, taking a great design and making a few subtle changes. The big change this year is the upgraded infotainment center - now a deluxe 7-inch model that still includes both Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto. Beyond the center console, though, you're just looking at a host of quality-of-life improvements in the interior. The quality of everything inside is just a little bit better, with a tiny bit of extra space that really helps the vehicle to stand out in its class.

Two Trims Take The Cake

There are two trim options available this year, LT and Premier. The LT features the new touchscreen console and a few minor interior improvements, but it's very similar to last year's model. If you want to see a big change, you have to take a look at the Premier package.

The Premier takes everything great about the Equinox and bumps it up another level. It features an 8-inch central touchscreen with voice recognition, apps, 2 USB ports, an aux cable, and even an SD card slot. It also adds great features like pedestrian detection and a high-definition backup camera.

What is Under the Hood of the 2019 Equinox?

2019 GMC Acadia You won't see any major changes in the engine for the 2019 Equinox, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It still has a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, for example, and delivers the same 170 horsepower as last year. There is, however, an optional upgrade that will give you a little more power, with a 2-liter engine and a 252 horsepower. The biggest surprise is probably the ability to swap over to diesel, a rarity in today's market. A 137 horsepower 1.6-liter diesel engine is available for those who really want to push the vehicle's gas mileage to its limit.

How Safe is the Chevy Equinox?

2019 GMC Acadia Lift GateThe 2019 Equinox remains a very safe car. It has all of the standard features you'd want, from anti-lock brakes to seatbelt pretensioners. The best features, though, are a bit more unique. It includes a rear-vision camera, of course, but it also has features like collision alerts, a lane-keep assist, and an optional pedestrian alert system. It even features the new Teen Driving configuration, which allows parents to block access to certain features and to encourage teens to drive safely and even gives parents an update on their teen's driving behavior. It should be noted, though, that not all of these features come standard on the vehicle - there are three separate safety packages, each of which is meant to appeal to a certain type of driver. Feel free to contact us with any questions about these features.
