Chevrolet sells four versions of the 2024 Equinox: LS, LT, RS, and Premier. They’re all powered by a 175-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed automatic transmission manages the standard front-wheel drive (FWD) or available all-wheel drive (AWD).
The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the FWD Equinox is 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. With AWD, the Equinox is rated for 24 mpg around town and 30 mpg on the open road. The Equinox can tow up to 1,500 pounds when it’s properly equipped. Cargo capacity is 29.9 cubic feet behind the rear seat and 63.9 cubic feet with the back seat folded.
The entry-level Equinox LS gets fabric upholstery, manual air conditioning, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, LED headlights with auto on/off, four-way manually adjustable front seats, heated power side mirrors, a tilt/telescopic steering column, two front USB data ports, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The available LS Convenience Package will add an eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar controls, a color driver information display, and rear privacy glass.
The LT gets all of the LT’s equipment including the contents of the Convenience Package. It also adds heated front seats, a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, a wrapped steering wheel, and an overhead console. The RS gets all the LT’s features but with the added style of black exterior accents, unique interior treatments, LED taillights, and 19-inch wheels. The available RS Leather Package will furnish it with perforated leather seating surfaces and extra infotainment features (described below).
The Premier builds off the LT with leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free power liftgate, a driver’s position memory system, fog lights, LED taillights, heated power side mirrors with integrated turn indicators, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, wireless device charging, two front USB data ports, and 18-inch wheels. This top-tier Equinox’s options include the Confidence & Convenience II Package (ventilated front seats, an eight-way power front passenger seat with lumbar controls, heated rear outboard seats, and additional driver aids).
All 2024 Equinox trims have Chevy Safety Assist installed, for automatic high beams, forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, and a following distance indicator. Lane change alert, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors are included with the LT and higher trims and optional for the LS (minus the front parking sensors).
The Premier’s available Confidence & Convenience II Package adds a surround-view monitor, adaptive cruise control, and semi-automatic parking assistance. The surround-view monitor and adaptive cruise control can be added to the LT and RS. The Safety Alert Seat, which vibrates the driver’s seat for select safety notifications, is exclusive to the Premier.
Infotainment for the 2024 Equinox LS, LT, and RS is handled through a 7-inch touchscreen system, while the Premier gets an 8-inch touchscreen (which is an optional upgrade for the LT and RS). Both arrangements are supported by a six-speaker audio system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Navigation is optional in conjunction with the larger touchscreen. A seven-speaker Bose sound system is an option for the RS and Premier. All trims have access to a Wi-Fi hotspot and OnStar/Chevrolet Connected Access services.
