We’ve dug up yet another video, this time of the 2010 Chevy Equinox and Mike Rizzo, engineer for ABS, traction, and electronic stability control systems. In the video, Mike explains what each of these features does and applies them to real-world situations. He then proceeds to do things in the Equinox that warrant a “Professional driver. Closed course.” warning. All three of these ride control technologies are standard equipment on the Equinox, making it “a favorite in the mid-crossover segment.”
And just in case you’re wondering, yes, that’s Chevrolet’s own description of the Equinox’s classification in the “mid-crossover segment,” lending credence to this humble blogger’s opinion that the Theta-based CUV does not actually compete with compact CUVs such as the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. But I digress.
