2021 Chevy Equinox Performance Review

When you frequently travel between communities like Wexford and Cranberry Township or the bustling city of Pittsburgh, potent vehicle performance is a must. However, performance isn’t just about horsepower and torque.

The 2021 Chevy Equinox provides a well-rounded performance that checks off several boxes, such as efficiency and precise handling—all in addition to balanced power! Check out this breakdown by the Baierl Chevrolet team to see for yourself.

Even a compact engine can pack a big punch—the 2021 Chevy Equinox is proof of that. It sports a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, and while it is streamlined and smaller, it generates an energetic 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

You’ll find that power is incredibly responsive, too, when paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Overdrive and Driver Shift Controls make shifting through gears effortless, even when quickly accelerating on the highway!

Efficient MPG Saves You Time at the Pump

Are you looking to save money in the fuel department? You’ll appreciate the EPA-estimated 25 MPG city and 30 MPG highway maintained in this crossover.

This fuel economy can be achieved in part by an Automatic Stop/Start system. During idling periods—say when you’re stopped at a red light—the engine will turn on and off automatically to prevent wasting any fuel.

You know this region of Pennsylvania runs the weather gamut. In the summer, there are hot, sunny days made for dirt roads. In the winter, there’s enough snow and ice to make even a polar bear happy.

Through it all, the available all-wheel drive system in the 2021 Chevy Equinox will keep your tires firmly planted on the road ahead. This system was made for low-traction weather conditions, such as rain, sleet, and snow.

The crossover’s AWD monitors all four wheels constantly. If extra traction is needed up front or in the back at any given time, adjustments are made instantly to increase grip and handling.

The cherry on top of the performance sundae is safety. Even when the roads are busy—especially during an early morning commute when you might be slightly drowsy—driver-assisting safety keeps an eye out for you.

Chevy Safety Assist is standard in every trim level of the Equinox. Its included features use an array of sensors or even small cameras to predict and avoid hazards. Did you miss that car creeping up in your blind spot when changing lanes? Chevy Safety Assist didn’t. Were you surprised when the driver in front of you suddenly hit the brakes? Your car wasn’t.

With Chevy Safety Assist, you’ll have:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Following Distance Indicator
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • IntelliBeam®
