2013 chevrolet equinox
1.Outstanding fuel economy – Every Equinox in this year’s
lineup delivers impressive fuel economy numbers. The
2.4L 4-cylinder FWD delivers an EPA-rated 22 city/32
highway mpg.
2.Excellent Value – Equinox provides comfortable seating
and a quiet interior as well as the latest technology and
convenience features that you would not expect to see
in a compact crossover. Premium features like rear-seat
dual DVD entertainment, 8-way power for both driver and
passenger seats, power programmable liftgate, Universal
Home Remote, memory for the driver seat and mirror, as well
as high-end audio systems and connectivity features are all
priced or packaged with economy and tight budgets in mind.
3.Exceptional Quality and Reliability – The Equinox was
declared again as a “Best Buy” by Consumer Digest.
In addition, Equinox earned accolades as “The Most
Dependable in its Class” by J.D. Power. Equinox features
world-class build quality and careful attention to detail.
Since its last update for the 2010 model year, Equinox has been
a consistent favorite with the buyers of compact SUVs as well
as automotive journalists. Recent notable awards for Equinox
include a 2012 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety and a designation from Consumer’s Digest as a
“Best Buy.” Both of these awards show that Equinox occupies the
sweet spot of this segment.
