The Chevrolet Equinox's exterior design is relatively innocuous and will easily blend into any shopping mall parking lot. The base model (and LT) get 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-season tires, body-colored door handles, auto on/off LED headlights, heated power side mirrors, and a manual rear liftgate. Mid-range models add features such as deep-tinted rear glass and power liftgate, and while the top-spec Premier rolls on 18-inch wheels, the RS gets the largest of the bunch - 19-inch aluminum wheels. The RS also gets sporty black trim with black bowtie badging and equips LED taillights. The top-of-the-line Premier adds features such as bright lower window trim, fog lamps, and a hands-free liftgate.
The Chevy Equinox's dimensions see it classified as a compact crossover SUV; it's bout the same size as the Nissan Rogue and GMC Terrain. The Equinox is 183.1 inches long, 72.6 inches wide, excluding the side mirrors, and 65.4 inches tall. The wheelbase measures 107.3 inches, and minimum ground clearance is 7.6 inches with FWD - AWD models with 18-inch wheels clear around eight inches.
The LS trim in FWD is the lightest at 3,274 pounds, and the AWD Premier is the heaviest at 3,512 lbs.

The base model Chevy Equinox is offered in four no-cost colors: Sterling Gray Metallic, Summit White, Mosaic Black, and Blue Glow. Moving up to the LT opens up the rest of the palette for the range, and includes colors such as Iron Gray and Harvest Bronze Metallic. Radiant Red Tintcoat costs an additional $495, and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat will set you back $995.
We like Harvest Bronze metallic, but spending on Radiant Red is also worthwhile as it helps the otherwise innocuous Equinox stand out.
Iridescent Pearl Tricoat is an additional $995 and unavailable to the base mode.
Wheel sizes range from 17 inches on the base model to 19 inches on the RS.
