The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox has already been a hot seller this year! It is easy to see why it is so popular when you get in and drive one. These Crossovers are made extremely well and luxuriously! The amount of detail and technology packaged into these SUV’s is just amazing!
EPA-estimated 32 MPG highway with an automatic transmission and a range of up to 600 highway miles per tank!
The 2012 Equinox has two engine options to choose from. Either the ECOTEC 2.4L DOHC engine for the best fuel economy and customers who are not looking to haul much, or they can get the 3.0L V6 for improved acceleration and towing capabilities. Both of these engines utilize the direct injection and variable valve timing to optimize its fuel economy. The 2.4L however also has an ECO button that will change the shifting patterns within the transmission which optimizes the cars fuel efficiency. For instance, when the ECO button is pushed the vehicles computer will try to shift to higher gears sooner, to increase overall fuel efficiency.
Another interesting technology built in to the Chevrolet Equinox is the Active Noise Cancellation on 4-cylinder models. Many of the innovative features built into this car have been around for a bit, and over the past few years, there has been a low rumble sound present in the 4-cylinder engine, so Chevrolet came up with its Active Noise Cancellation. Built into the Equinox are subwoofers that broadcast pressure waves in the opposite frequency to actually cancel out the unwanted sounds! There are so many features in this vehicle, and for me to really touch on all of them, would be pretty much impossible! Just come down to Red River Chevrolet and see for yourself!
The Chevy Equinox offers 18 Storage Areas! It offers everything from a cell phone cubby with its own power outlet, to an oversized center console able to store a laptop or purse. It seems difficult to think of an Equinox as “compact”.
The Equinox offers leather-appointed seats with two-toned panels and color-contrasted stitching. It seats up to five people while offering a soft, ice-blue LED ambient lighting and triple-door seals and active noise cancellation to help keep the mood within the vehicle soft and relaxing!
A premium 8-speaker, 250-watt Pioneer Audio System is also available with select models of the equinox. The all-new Chevrolet MyLink is also present within the 2012 2LT and LTZ Equinox. It’s touch screen stereo utilizes Pandora, Stitcher SmartRadio, and Gracenote all provide seamless innovation for the ultimate media experience.
