The all new 2008 Chevy Equinox, is off to a hot start demand is exceeding supply as consumers of the successful previous generation model look to upgrade and new shoppers give GM’s latest small cross over a look. Prior to this test drive had already been in 2 different GMC terrains so the Equinox build them Billiards. I didn’t fall in love with A 4 cylinder or vc It’s terrains. I was a bit I wasn’t even a fan of the first Gen models but a subtle difference between the Equinox and its GMC counterpart went to my preference towards this. The rain is a Butch looking SUV with an aspirational name to match. And for that the GMC fall short of expectations. The Equinox on the other hand is urban chic it’s styled in the vein of a smaller Chevy traverse, and has considerable curb appeal it comes off as less pretentious and friendlier over all that being said it still has some warts that I didn’t like in the terrain This tester has the optional V6 and all wheel drive the 3 litre 264 horse engine while reasonably fuel efficient and powerful comes across as a little course.
It immediately makes you long for GM is far superior 3.6 liter unit. And for that reason think most buyers would be better off sticking with the base 2.4 liter 4 cylinder which feels more fitting here and that’s 3 more anti Jeez. The V6 with all wheel drive is rated at 17 MPG city and 24 highway the other attributes which makes the Equinox not as satisfying to drive as some of its small you competitors is its size. It’s looked upon as a compact crossover but there’s no denying it’s quite a bit bigger and it drives that way too that doesn’t have that nimble this that makes vehicles like the Honda CRV, so easy to maneuver and no I found a little more mo Jo to enjoy in the Equinox it’s still largely leaves any passion or excitement outside it’s competent certainly roomie and has a great looking interior there are some nice features in this op level LTZ tram like heated seats. Сar also has a very high-quality optics, new 2008 Chevy Equinox headlight assembly shine at night is great.
