2018 Chevrolet Equinox 1.5T - Redline: Review
The 2005 Chevrolet Equinox crossover model range is equipped with a 3.4-liter LNJ V6 engine, whose power is 185 hp. The engine itself is assembled in China. As for the transmission, here is installed 5-speed automatic transmission Aisin AF33, which in turn comes from Japan. The brake system of the car includes front disc and rear drum brakes.
When developing the Chevrolet Equinox, one of the main tasks was to make it the most versatile. As a result, the proprietary transformation system Mult-Flex was applied here. It lies in the fact that the rear seats can move back and forth on special runners, or even removed, creating a roomy cargo compartment.
In 2008, a new version of the Chevrolet Equinox called Sport was introduced. The technical equipment of the crossover has been thoroughly revised. The car received a new power unit LY7 V6 DOHC of 3.6 liters, whose power is 275 hp. The new more powerful engine allows the SUV to accelerate to 100 km / h in just seven seconds. Changes affected transmissions. Instead of the previous 5-speed “automatic”, a 6-speed GM 6T70 automatic gearbox is already installed here.
The exterior of the Chevrolet Equinox Sport has also been updated. The SUV got a new bumper and 18-inch wheels.
It is worth noting that, in addition to the version of Equinox Sport, one more equipment was added to the model range called the Equinox LTZ. Its main distinguishing features were chrome door handles and decorative elements of the body, as well as chrome 17-inch wheels. The standard interior of this version included leather trim, airbags, a high-quality Pioneer seven-speaker stereo system and a six-disc CD changer.
Production of the Chevrolet Equinox continues successfully today.
