2021 Chevrolet Equinox Trims & Specs

The Equinox range comprises four trim levels: L, LS, LT, and Premier. They all get the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, paired to six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drivetrain. All-wheel-drive is available, though not on the base L.

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights, manual air conditioning, cruise control, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker sound system. The LS gains a spare wheel and access to several optional packages.

The upper-tier LT comes with HID headlights, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and a 4.2-inch information screen in the instrument cluster. At the top of range, the Premier rides 18-inch alloys and upgrades to LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, a power liftgate, an eight-inch infotainment system, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Additional Packages

There are numerous packages available, but only a few worth mentioning. You can opt for the $685 Convenience Package on the LS trim, adding an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, two-way power lumbar support, and tinted rear glass. The LT comes with a new Leather Package that costs $1,350. Apart from leather upholstery, this also adds driver-seat memory, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and heated, power-adjustable auto-dimming side mirrors. However, this upgrade requires that you first spec on the Confidence and Convenience Package, which adds another $2,045. This essentially lifts the luxury level to be on par with the top model, adding remote start, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats.. The Premier has a more advanced Confidence and Convenience Package with even more luxuries like heated outboard rear seats, adaptive cruise control, and an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat.

🚗What 2021 Chevrolet Equinox Model Should I Buy?

It's a tough call. Our previous recommendation was to avoid the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and go for a mid-spec LT with a 2.0-liter engine. That option no longer exists, so the Equinox's main selling point is value for money. With that in mind, we'd opt for the LS and include the Convenience Pack. This Equinox will cost you $27,085 MSRP. The LT doesn't add all that much extra and the Premier is significantly more expensive. If value for money isn't a concern, we recommend waiting a few months for the powerful 2.0-liter engine to return to the Equinox.
